FULL TOUR: Come With Us to See a 2-Bedroom Villa at Disney’s Riviera Resort

Did you know you could visit the Mediterranean without ever leaving Disney World?

Riviera Resort

That’s right, we’re talking about Disney’s Riviera Resort, one of the NEWEST hotels on the property. This is a Disney Vacation Club (DVC) resort, and it could be one of the most elegant hotels on property, taking its theme from its namesake, the Mediterranean Riviera.

Resort Atmosphere

As we mentioned, the Riviera is designed with an understated European theming in mind. The front of the hotel offers a boulevard lined with palm trees with walkways with French-inspired lampposts.

The main lobby features a modern, yet classic, feel PLUS you’ll find all kinds of artwork of Disney characters, styled after some of the European masters.

The hotel’s grounds feature gardens, fountains, and landscaping perfect for taking a stroll through a European garden without ever leaving Disney property.

Riviera grounds

The Riviera is also a deluxe resort, meaning that it falls under the pricier category of hotels on Disney World property. Guests staying here can take advantage of both Early Theme Park Entry and Extended Evening Hours.


The Riviera has its own Skyliner station, meaning you can easily travel to other Skyliner hotels, as well as EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Riviera Skyliner Station

This is the only Disney World deluxe hotel on the Skyliner line, so that’s a draw that makes the Riviera unique.


The Riviera is also not short on great restaurants. Topolino’s Terrace serves one of the best character breakfasts in Disney World and has become a restaurant influenced by French and Italian food for dinner.

Bar Riva is an open pool bar where you can pick up some European- and Mediterranean-inspired eats, as well as cocktails and other drinks.

Primo Piatti is the hotel’s quick-service location that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can also get grab-and-go items here. Le Petit Cafe takes inspiration from Parisian cafes and offers pastries that could double as artwork, as well as coffee and cocktails.


If you want to do a little shopping, you can visit La Boutique to get a variety of items, as well as Riviera-specific merchandise.

But let’s talk about those rooms, shall we?

Room Tour

The Riviera has five different room types: Tower Studios, Deluxe Studios, 1-bedroom villas, 2-bedroom villas, and 3-bedroom grand villas. For this stay, we were in a 2-bedroom villa. So let’s open the door and go inside. Here’s what things look like when you turn around to stare at the door — it’s a little entryway area.

A look at the entryway

The 2-bedroom villa has one King bed, 2 Queen beds, and 1 queen pull-down bed plus a single pull-down bed. These rooms sleep up to nine adults.

Let’s go in!

So what did we think about this room? Well, first, it’s MASSIVE — it’s bigger than a lot of apartments. Yes, it’s pricey and runs anywhere from $1500 to $2800 depending on the view and dates of your travel. But think about it — you could get 10 adults to split the price, meaning it would come to about $150  to $280 per night, which is much more reasonable.

Honestly, we didn’t want to leave the room and we even thought we’d skip going to the parks if we could just stay here and chill for a night or two. It’s THAT nice.
