10 Things You Will Love About Disney’s Riviera Resort


Gondola access to BOTH Hollywood Studios AND Epcot. This resort would be perfect for those specifically traveling to enjoy one of Epcot’s many festivals OR even a trip with an emphasis on Star Wars Land.

One of Disney’s most popular character meals, Toppolinos, is located on the 10th floor.  Mickey and friends in artsy attire? I’m in!

Beautiful grounds with many outdoor activities to enjoy. You will find corn hole, bocce ball, a HUGE chess set, AND plenty of seating to enjoy the scenery. We loved watching the gondolas trek along in the distance!


Throughout this resort, you will find amazing artwork and mosaics. My favorite is the Tangled mosaic located near the walkway to the Skyliner.

Two beautiful zero-entry pools and a fun splash pad. The splash pad is a work of art all on its own with its pillars and ceramic hippos.

Delicious pastries! You can find Disney famous banana bread at Primo Piatto AND several works of edible art at Le Petit Cafe.

I often judge resorts on their seating areas. I’m always looking for fun places to sit and relax. Riviera has one of my favorites in the Disney bubble, Voyageurs’ Lounge. This lounge looks like an old-world library. It also showcases Disney memorabilia. It’s the perfect place to sit with coffee and pastries from Le Petit Cafe.


GELATO by the POOL! Yes, I said GELATO and POOL in the same sentence! No more explanation is needed on this one!


Beautiful rooms, some with two showers! Yay for the ability for more than one person to get ready at once!

Free laundry. Just bring your favorite laundry supplies or purchase them there. Great way to pack less or come home without a ton of laundry


As you can see there is so much to love about Disney’s Riviera Resort! It is the perfect mix of old-world charm and modern amenities.
