First Look: Inside Disney’s Riviera Resort at Walt Disney World

We are at Disney’s Riviera Resort this morning for the Grand Opening.

Disney’s Riviera Resort is designed to capture the magic of Europe that Walt Disney fell in love with when he visited there a long time ago.

This elegant Resort will celebrate the grandeur of Europe—which has long inspired some of the greatest Disney stories with its castles and fairy-tale villages.

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. We especially love the Tangled Mural.

The European ambiance will extend outdoors—where beautiful gardens, bubbling fountains, lush landscaping, and a serene waterfront will beckon you to enjoy scenic strolls with your loved ones.

Here is a photo tour of the resort, we will add more photos throughout the day as we get them so stay tuned.

Photos do not do this resort justice so we have some videos for you to check out.
