New Disney Riviera Resort concept art

The new Disney Riviera Resort is projected to open in fall 2019, with stays expected to be available from December 16 2019.

Disney’s Riviera Resort is designed to capture the magic of Europe. From the grand archways and porticos to the tower and terraces, each detail will draw upon the influences of Europe and the Mediterranean.

“Disney’s Riviera Resort is inspired by Walt and Lillian Disney’s travels throughout Europe and the Mediterranean coastline —from France to Italy,” said Terri Schultz, senior vice president and general manager of Disney Vacation Club. “Walt fell in love with European art, architecture, food and stories, and his extended tours of the region continue to influence Disney storytelling and theming. We look forward to welcoming our members and guests later this year to this new resort inspired by Europe and imagined by Disney.”

In the main lobby, you’ll find yourself in an elegant setting appointed with a mix of modern and classic 20th-Century furnishings. You’ll also discover a unique art collection celebrating beloved Disney Characters and icons, influenced by master artists who found inspiration along the European Riviera.

Rooms will be available from a starting price of $335, and available in the usual Disney vacation Club categories of 1-Bedroom Villas, 2-Bedroom Villas and 3-Bedroom Grand Villas.

Deluxe Studios are priced from $503, 1 Bedroom Villas from $743, 2 Bedroom Villas from $1136, and 3 Bedroom Grand Villas from $2277 per night.

Unique to Disney Riviera Resort will be new, specially designed for 2 Guests, Tower Studios. Built into the wall, you’ll find a kitchenette, drawers and a hidden pull-down queen-size bed that tucks away to reveal a comfortable lounge-worthy space. Tower Studios are the lowest priced rooms, starting at $335.
