Disney’s newest resort is now open to guests. The Riviera Resort celebrated its grand opening and dedication this morning.
On hand for the opening were Walt Disney World Ambassador Stephen Lim and Senior Vice President of DVC, Guided Adventures & Expeditions, and Golden Oak Terri Schultz. A few of their closest friends were there too — sporting brand new outfits!
During the opening ceremony Schultz celebrated that this is the 15th DVC resort, and first one since 2004’s opening of Saratoga Springs that is a dedicated DVC resort.
Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Daisy were also there wearing their new outfits that GMA previewed last week. Together with Schultz and Lim the gang officially cut the ribbon declaring the Riviera Resort open.

During her statements Schultz stated the resort is a “Masterpiece of Style, Casual Elegance, and Disney Charm”. See photos of the resort here!
