Fun Things to Do
While the pools are great fun, there are also a few other outdoor activities to enjoy at the Disney Riviera Resort. A full-size Bocce Ball court is located in the main courtyard beside the quiet pool and is always looking for someone to play. A fire pit is located behind the main family pool and overlooks the water. Come join in for marshmallows and smores. A huge activity lawn is filled with fun and games and is the perfect place for the kids to run out some of that extra energy before bedtime.
As much as you might be tempted to bring your small dog along with you, if you are staying at the Disney Riviera Resort, Pets are not allowed. If this is a deal-breaker, consider looking at the Pet Friendly Hotels in Disney World. Service animals are welcome at the Disney Saratoga Springs Resort.
There are not any additional Resort Fees when staying at the Disney Riviera Resort.
Self-Parking is included, as always for Disney Vacation Club Members, however, if you are renting points or have booked a room through a 3rd party, you will have a nightly fee for parking.
Transportation at the Riviera Resort
Transportation is more fun at the Disney Riviera Resort. One of the Disney Skyliner hubs are located at the Riviera Resort and will connect you directly to Epcot and Disney Caribbean Beach Resort. What a fun way to travel as you whisk away through the sky over Disney World. The Disney Bus system can also get you to all of the other Disney World Theme Parks, Water Parks and also to Disney Springs.
The Riviera Resort offers guests full access to the Athlétique Fitness Center where you will find all of the fitness equipment and free weights necessary to get in a good workout before the day starts.
Unfortunately, you will not find a Spa at the Disney Riviera Resort.
Even if you are not staying at the Disney Riviera Resort, it is worth booking at Topolino’s Terrace for the beautiful rooftop views you will experience. Flavors of the Riviera are waiting for Breakfast and Dinner. A more casual setting is found at the Primo Piatto with grab and go options.
