Disney World Releases New Details & Concept Artwork for Disney’s Riviera Resort

Along with the announcement of the Disney Skyliner gondola opening date, we got some new details and concept artwork of the new Disney’s Riviera Resort coming to Walt Disney World later this year, which will be part of the new Disney Skyliner system.

According to Disney, this new DVC resort will be designed after early 20th century hotels situated along Europe’s Mediterranean coast, featuring classic European designs mixed with modern expressions.

“Its articulated stone base and smooth stucco façades will be accented with decorative metalwork and colorful awnings. French mansard roofs and Italian style arches and loggias will intermingle with other architectural styles found along the coastal region.”

The center of the resort will feature a tower that will feature expressive roofs and ornamental details. The entire resort is a ” layered story, inspired by the buildings and architecture in Europe that grew and evolved over time.”

Disney also announced that the new rooftop restaurant, Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera, is now accepting reservations beginning December 16.

Of course with Disney, it is always in the details. Disney’s Riviera Resort will feature decorative railings throughout the resort will feature a subtle Disney twist, with motifs of Mickey Mouse and his leading lady, Minnie.

Disney’s Riviera Resort is scheduled to open at Walt Disney World Resort in December.
