First notification from Disney re new Riviera Resort - Taken from WDW Magic 16/7/17:

'Disney has today announced plans to build a brand new Disney Vacation Club Resort near to Epcot called Disney Riviera Resort.

The new resort will open in the fall of 2019, featuring 300 accommodation units, and linked via the new Disney Skyliner gondola system.

Disney Skyliner will connect the new Disney Vacation Club property, Disneyís Art of Animation, Pop Century and Caribbean Beach resorts with Disneyís Hollywood Studios and the International Gateway at Epcot.'This thread has been automatically created, because the original thread had over 500 posts.



Please feel free to carry on.

"Just after a bit of advice, looking to book this resort for August 2019 but wondering what the construction will be like at this point? Thanks "

(sorry didn't know how to quote something from the previous thread)

temo_gemo we are in a similar situation as we are also looking at this resort for August 2019 (although the size of it has always bothered me given that we won't have a car and there are a lot of bus stops). My impression is that the work will be complete way before then, but it isn't clear whether the Skyliner will be running by August 2019 since Disney haven't given a date yet. Watched Tim Tracker yesterday and Skyliner development looks well underway which gave me some hope. Seems like a gamble though - do I book CBR in the hope the Skyliner will be there, or go for a safer option like POR/POFQ? I am really unsure about what to do. POR and POFQ look lovely, but seem a bit more "grown up" compared to CBR and CSR. I always think the theming at the value resorts looks more fun for the kids, but have pretty much ruled them out due to location and we are hoping to get the QSDP offer with a moderate and upgrade to DDP.

Would love some CBR tips. We are staying there in just over 2 weeks time. Never stayed there before. As we are just having a quick 6 night trip to do the Disney Star Wars run, play some golf and do the parks we have opted for no car this time! Hoping we donít miss having it and that the Disney bus system is kind to us

This is a picture of one of our takeaway breakfasts.
There were also a couple of cinnamon rolls in there too, but I took them out before taking this photo.
Gives you an idea of what you can fit in the takeaway tub 😊
