We recently stayed in this absolutely stunning hotel and were immersed in its beauty and elegance. Lovely room, fabulous dining at Topolinos with incomparable food, service and views. By far our favorite resort on Disney property.

Pros:

Gorgeous hotel with beautiful views, incredible dining and easy access to the Skyliner . Totally different Disney experience while retaining the Disney hallmark of excellence.

Cons:

Very pricey.

Pros:

This hotel had a nice lobby and nice hotel rooms. They all are very elegant with little Disney touches. The pools are amazing along with all the eating options. The lemon cheesecake was delicious and so was the food from the pool bar. I really like the atmosphere because it gives off that European vibe.

Cons:

Although it is the newest hotel this leaves it felling as if it is not broken in as much. It also doesn’t have as many touches of Disney as some of the other hotels.

We stayed in January of this year and had the most amazing time! We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite with a view of the skyliner and spaceship earth. We could not have asked for a better stay! We would absolutely stay again.

Pros:

Felt very quaint and Disney without being in your face Disney

Cons:

Sometimes the buses would take awhile but that’s anywhere right now

The theming, food, and amenities are perfect for a couples getaway at WDW. We stayed at the Tower Studio rooms, which are perfect for a couple. We love the quiet pool area, the grounds, and the jogging path in the mornings. Topolinos Terrace was the highlight for dinner. Amazing food and service!

Pros:

Dining, ambiance, pools, skyliner!

Cons:

Price

My family and I had a wonderful stay in a two-bedroom villa over the Christmas holiday. The villa was beautiful and very roomy. Our adult children enjoyed the queen murphy bed instead of having to use a sleeper sofa/chair. The staff here was so friendly and we enjoyed the meals we had at Topolino's and Primo Piatto. Did I mention Disney's Skyliner?!! What a great way to get to EPCOT and Hollywood Studios! So much more relaxing than hopping on a bus! I highly recommend Riviera, even with it's more adult theming. The artwork and subtle Fab 5 reminders were enough theming for my family and I.

Pros:

Beautiful Two-Bedroom Villas, with soooo much space! Wonderful restaurants and pools. Friendly cast members Relaxing Gondola ride to and from EPCOT and Hollywood Studios

Cons:

More points to stay here.

Oh my gosh I absolutely recommend this hotel if you can go, It is very pricey but me and my family got to go for free, It feels like a more mature Disney hotel compared to wilderness lodge.

Pros:

Amazing food, Great cast members, great gelato, and amazing pool.

Cons:

Lack of theming

This resort is outstanding and provides amazing views and dining options. In addition to the gorgeous architecture of the hotel the Riviera offers convenient transportation services and with the sky-liner being connected to the hotel it offers easy access to Hollywood Studios and Epcot. One of the hidden gems of this hotel is the Bar Riva that is located on the back side of the resort facing the lake/Caribbean beach area. This is a pool bar that has a full bar level of drink availability and during the food and wine festival offers some of the seasonal drink options that only come around during the food and wine festival. Finally, one other great part of this resort is the subtle nature of the theming. Not everyone is a fan of the in-your-face Disney theme and if you are an adult or traveling without children this could be a perfect fit for you.

Pros:

Location, Dining, Views, Décor.

Cons:

price.
