Disney’s Riviera Resort Interior (Photos)

Disney’s Riviera Resort opened to the public on December 16th, 2019. The resort is not only beautiful on the outside, but it’s also beautiful on the inside.

It is inspired by the French and Italian Riviera, but it is uniquely Disney with some luxurious touches and some hidden and some not-so-hidden Mickeys.

Let’s take a look at some of the interior details of Disney’s Riviera Resort, courtesy of the nice folks at Disney Media Relations!

Lobby

One of the first interior spaces that guests see is the lobby, so it has to be inviting and reflective of the resort as a whole.

Disney’s Riviera Resort Lobby is welcoming and sets the tone for the resort!

One of the most obviously absent elements of Disney’s Riviera Resort is concierge desks. There are a couple of desk locations, but I observed many of the front desk Cast Members inviting guests to make themselves comfortable in the many chairs spotting the lobby. The Cast Members then came to these areas to check guests in and provide information via iPads.

The beautiful lighting fixture above provides just enough light to complement the natural lighting of the floor-to-ceiling windows.

Immediately to the left of the front door, you’ll find La Boutique, Riviera’s store, and Le Petit Café, a quaint café perfect for light snacks and beverages.

If you walk through the lobby, you’ll find these steps, which take you downstairs to the main level of the resort.

Remember I said that the hotel features some hidden and some not-so-hidden Mickeys? Let’s take a look!
