Construction Update: Riviera Resort and Gran Destino Tower Opening Soon in Disney World

There is a lot of construction going on around Disney World — and some of it will add more than 800 guest rooms and suites this year! The Gran Destino Tower will open as part of Coronado Springs Resort on July 9, 2019, and the Riviera Resort will open on December 16, 2019, becoming Disney Vacation Club‘s 15th resort.

Gran Destino Tower is starting to take shape — with three months to go until opening day.

As Gran Destino Tower progresses it is really starting to match up with the concept artwork that was released when the Tower was announced.

The cover over the entrance needs to be added in the coming months as the project nears completion.

Lastly, the Caribbean Beach Resort will be on the new Disney Skyliner System line. We stopped to check out the construction progress on the resort’s Skyliner station — and found a lot of covered gondolas waiting to be unwrapped and put into service!
