Guests at this resort are able to choose from a variety of room types depending on the size of their traveling party or amenities they might be looking for, including a brand-new room type. The Tower Studio is unique to this resort and perfect for two travelers with a pull-down bed, balcony and spacious bathroom.

Although the villas are equipped with amazing kitchens or kitchenettes, perfect for whipping up your own French recipe, perhaps you’d like to leave the cooking to someone else while on vacation. Disney’s Riviera Resort is home to Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera. Offering French and Italian cuisine, it also gives its guests some of the most amazing rooftop views on Walt Disney World property.

Bar Riva is also an excellent option for enjoying a cocktail and even a fresh salad. This open-air pool bar is located by the Riviera Pool, one of two pools at Disney’s Riviera Resort.

The Riviera Pool is a family-friendly pool that features a pool slide and splash area, S’il Vous Play. Little ones will love the interactive water play area that is inspired by the grand public fountains of Europe and features “Fantasia” characters. Those guests looking for a more relaxing day at the pool will enjoy an afternoon at Beau Soleil Pool.
