One of the bits of news that went a little under the radar today was the the Disney Riviera Resort new concept art which was revealed on stage by Bob Chapek.
It’s a cool shot of the Disney Riviera Resort, but a few things jumped out at me. One it’s going to be prime real estate to see the fireworks. You are so close to Epcot that guests are going to get some amazing shots both from their resort hotel rooms facing that side, and also from the restaurant on top of the hotel.
The other thing that jumped out to me was a rather lackluster pool area. From what I understand the Disney Riviera Resort is going to be a pretty high-end resort, and it has to be one of the smallest and least imaginative pools I’ve seen on Walt Disney World property. Also the back of the resort isn’t really doing it for me either and looks a bit uninspired to say the least. It doesn’t really give me any semblance of the “Riviera.”
Look how much cooler the front looks:
Now granted it is going to be small with only about 300 rooms and it will be in a great spot on the Disney Skyliner line and next to Epcot, but I think they could have done better. I’ll save my final judgement till I get up close and see the Riviera Resort myself, but it feels like potential wasted. Hopefully I’m wrong.
