This weekend at D23’s Destination D: Celebrating Mickey Mouse, Chairman of Disney Parks Bob Chapek shared a sneak peek what Disney’s new Riviera Resort will be like.

The Riviera Resort will be the 15th Disney Vacation Club resort on Disney property. It is slated to open sometime next fall, and we couldn’t be more excited! We are glad to finally get a glimpse of what it will be like.

The resort is inspired by Europe’s Mediterranean coastline, Walt Disney was enamored with during his trips to Europe. One of his most beloved trips to Europe was one that he took with his wife Lillian in 1935. His brother Roy and Roy’s wife Edna traveled with Walt and Lillian, and the trip served as a profound inspiration on Disney storytelling for decades afterward. The castles, villages, art and architecture in Europe found their way into Disney films long after Walt’s trip was only a memory.
