    Exclamation Disney’s Riviera Resort Celebrates First Birthday at Walt Disney World

    Disney’s Riviera Resort is celebrating its first birthday at Walt Disney World:

    To help mark the resort’s first anniversary, Disney Vacation Club commissioned The LEGO Group to create a spectacular model of Disney’s Riviera Resort, created in consultation with Disney Imagineers who helped bring the resort to life.

    LEGO Master Model Builders spent more than 300 hours designing and assembling the intricately detailed model, which weighs in at 100 pounds and contains more than 45,000 LEGO elements. The model includes many of the resort’s most distinctive features, including miniature recreations of the Disney Skyliner transportation system, the resort’s feature pool and waterslide, and its signature “RR” monogram.

    Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse were among the first to admire the model’s faithful details (even seeing themselves depicted outside the Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera rooftop restaurant) when the 84-inch-by-66-inch sculpture made a brief appearance at Disney’s Riviera Resort.

    Look for the model to arrive early next year to the Disney Vacation Club kiosk at Disney Springs Marketplace, where plans call for this one-of-a-kind work of art to remain on display through the remainder of 2021 – a year that marks 30 magical years of Disney Vacation Club.
    Disney has also released an Official Construction Video of the model.

    It looks nice and would be fun to stay on the Skyliner loop, but the rooms just seem tiny in comparison to other deluxe resorts. I guess where it really hits is for the DVC points in comparison to experience.

    We've stayed at the Riviera twice, so far. It's a lovely resort. I think the new Tower Rooms for 1-2 guests are the tiny rooms you're thinking of. We stayed in a one bedroom villa and my kids each had a deluxe studio villa. These rooms seemed bigger than the rooms and villas we've stayed in at other deluxe resorts. The one bedroom villa has a washer and dryer in room, too. Very convenient and great place to relax after a long day in the parks.
    Nice work, pal.
