We’re definitely looking forward to the Disney Riviera Resort which is opening at the end of 2019 in December, and Disney has just announced a new Walt Disney-inspired lounge for travel lovers called: “Voyageurs’ Lounge.”
Everyone knows that Walt Disney loved to travel and the Voyageurs’ Lounge will be decorated and inspired by a collection of books that Walt himself gathered, including some during his famous Walt’s 1935 European “Grand Tour.” Fitting seeing as the resort is themed after the French/Italian Riviera.
Voyageurs’ Lounge will be located next to Le Petit Café in the new Disney Riviera Resort and joins the coffee/wine bar as one of the many dining options coming to this brand new DVC resort.
