As most of you probably already know, I am a Disney Vacation Club member. My family lives for Disney vacations — we visit at least twice a year. The 15th DVC resort, Disney’s Riviera Resort, is opening on December 16th, and I was thrilled to get a chance to tour it. In fact, I am currently coming up with plans to convince my husband we should add on some more points there. Because you can never have too many vacation club points. 

I am dying to stay at this resort — and am so excited to tell you that I will be as part of Disney Creators Celebration in February! So stay tuned for a review of this resort after that. For now, take a photo tour with me of the amazing grounds and even a 3 bedroom grand villa!

Unfortunately I didn’t get as many photos as I had hoped to get — because I was too busy taking a video of the grand villa at Disney’s Riviera Resort. So I am sharing with you the ones I did take, as well as my video tour.

  1. Thank you for sharing. My thoughts of the resort are this...its new, its shiny, it's pretty. But I'm not sure it rises to the quality of the dvc grand floridian. The decorators did a great job and the art work is very nice. Theres just something about it tho that holds me back. On the outside, once you take the palm trees and colorful awnings away it really is a very plain looking facade. I also dont like these new galley kitchens they are putting in the new DVCs. Who wants a kitchen in your living room. I think the Grand is still the king of DVC.
