Tower Studio Tour at Disney’s Riviera Resort

Disney's Riviera Resort Tower Studio

DISCLOSURE: I was an invited guest of the Walt Disney World Resort to tour Disney’s Riviera Resort, but all opinions and overuse of exclamation marks are all my own.

Disney’s Riviera Resort is the first Disney Vacation Club property to feature a Tower Studio room type. 

While the resort has 12 of these rooms, located in the Resort’s tower featuring the iconic ‘Double Rs’, and while their layout is compact their function is off the charts. 

Disney's Riviera Resort Tower Studio

Let’s take a look at the Tower Studio Floor Plan. 

Disney's Riviera Resort Tower Studio
Disney Vacation Club

As you can see it features a main room, generously sized bathroom with closet, and a balcony (parking area, garden, or water views are available).

What makes these rooms so special is that every space has a double use. 

Disney's Riviera Resort Tower Studio

Without a traditional dresser, shelves and drawers are located in the wall unit that also houses the queen-sized pull-down bed. 

Speaking of pull-down bed, when it’s time to transform the room from day to night, there’s no need to move the couch (only the two small ottomans that also have storage) because as you pull the bed down the couch folds under.

Disney's Riviera Resort Tower Studio

While we are here, let’s take a second to admire the fantastic Peter Pan artwork on the wall behind the bed!!!

Disney's Riviera Resort Tower Studio

Also note that on either side of the bed are little books that feature two USB ports and two standard plugs for charging your electronics.

Disney's Riviera Resort Tower Studio

It’s also worth noting that in this living space you will find the new Walt Disney World smart televisions that we first saw in Gran Destino Tower

And while it may seem large compared to the living space of the Tower Studio, the bathroom size is filled with touches and a closet that help make this cozy space functional.

Disney's Riviera Resort Tower Studio
Disney's Riviera Resort Tower Studio

Common Room Amenities also include:

  • Paper plates and bowls, and plastic utensils
  • Small refrigerator
  • Microwave
  • Iron and ironing board
  • Laundry basket
  • Hair dryer
  • Ice bucket
  • Telephone with voicemail
  • Private porch or balcony
  • Coffee maker
  • Wireless Internet access
  • High chair (upon request)
  • Portable crib (upon request)

I would really love to give staying in one of the Tower Studios at Disney’s Riviera a try!

Disney’s Riviera Resort Merchandise

Disney's Riviera Resort Merchandise

DISCLOSURE: I was an invited guest of the Walt Disney World Resort to tour Disney’s Riviera Resort, but all opinions and overuse of exclamation marks are all my own.

Disney’s Riviera Resort, the newest Disney Vacation Club resort, has some amazing resort specific merchandise that you can find inside of the Resort’s gift shop called La Boutique.

What makes the merchandise so special is that it marks a return to Walt Disney World creating Resort specific merchandise, which makes my heart super happy!!!

From plush inspired by the character breakfast at Topolino’s Terrace to rose-gold ears with fabric featuring the Resort’s iconic double R, you can find something for everyone in your family.

What is also unique is that you can purchase pieces from the curated collection of art that you see throughout Disney’s Riviera Resort with a kiosk inside of La Boutique.

Disney's Riviera Resort Merchandise La Boutique

Let’s take a look at some of my favorite Disney’s Riviera Resort merchandise pieces!

My Favorite Disney’s Riviera Resort Merchandise

La Boutique Disney's Riviera Resort Merchandise

The Loungefly backpack was SUPER popular with guests at Disney’s Riviera Resort the day I went. These backpacks are a great size for the park with padded shoulder straps. If there is a selection available, make sure you take a moment to find a placement of the pattern that you love!

La Boutique Disney's Riviera Resort Merchandise

So this woven fedora with blue and white stripe band matches the vibe of Disney’s Riviera Resort perfectly! Also, how perfect is the Double R logo on the gold button???

La Boutique Disney's Riviera Resort Merchandise

I am calling it now…these rose gold ears are THE piece of Disney’s Riviera Resort merchandise that will be the most sought after! The pattern on the bow’s fabric feels very Lilly Pulitzer, but the colors are more Tory Burch…I hope that makes as much sense as it did in my mind!

La Boutique Disney's Riviera Resort Merchandise

The Disney’s Riviera Resort luggage features two patterns. On the front you can find the Resort’s name with a vintage steamer feel, and on the back you will find a Hidden Mickey pattern that is similar to those found around the Resort.

La Boutique Disney's Riviera Resort Merchandise

Topolino’s Terrace at Disney’s Riviera Resort has a character breakfast and the characters wear Resort exclusive costumes, so of course Disney’s Riviera Resort sells plush with the same costumes for you to take home.

La Boutique Disney's Riviera Resort Merchandise

Make sure you check out the Pandora charms for two Disney’s Riviera Resort designs!

This pillow is similar to those found in the rooms at Disney’s Riviera Resort.

La Boutique Disney's Riviera Resort Merchandise

Okay guys…Can we just take a moment to completely appreciate this Disney’s Riviera Resort themed autograph book that also features coloring pages? Thank you!

La Boutique Disney's Riviera Resort Merchandise

This long dress is perfection! The fabric is buttery soft with a natural waist detail that is flattering for most if not all body shapes. I LOVE IT!!!!

La Boutique Disney's Riviera Resort Merchandise

This trio of travel bags featuring the Disney’s Riviera Resort logo and color scheme are fantastic, because they are the right size for bringing jewelry, toiletries, or even phone cables on the go.

Sesame Street Christmas Parade Viewing Tips

This year SeaWorld Orland’s Christmas Celebration, Sesame Street Land has been decked out for the holidays and their daily parade has a fun holiday twist!

The Sesame Street Christmas Parade features Big Bird, Grover, Elmo, and friends in their holiday best as dancing along to holiday favorites, such as “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “Joy to the World.”

The Sesame Street Christmas Parade is very popular, so here are a few tips for making your viewing the best it can possibly be.

Sesame Street Christmas Parade Viewing Tips

The parade does not just roll down the middle of Sesame Street. The parade starts over near Abby’s Flower Tower before heading down to the end of Sesame Street Land and stopping to fill the area along the neighborhood (not attractions) with fun.

While the parade does stop, children are not encouraged to step out and join the characters during the parade stops. It’s helpful to set this expectation early, because it is tempting for little ones to want to join the dancing.

Make sure to get your spot at least 30 minutes before the parade starts to grab a spot along the street.

Be aware that if you are in the front row, you will be asked to sit down for the parade so that others behind you will be able to see.

While you are in the neighborhood, take time to enjoy the holiday decorations throughout Sesame Street Land! My favorite are the decorations in the Laundromat made of lost socks!

The Sesame Street Christmas Parade is a fantastic addition to SeaWorld Orlando’s Christmas Celebration, and it is included with your theme park admission until December 31st.
