Riviera Resort Construction Update - February 2018

Construction is moving at a brisk pace on Disney Vacation Club's fifteenth timeshare property.

Disney Riviera Resort 201707b

Website WDWMagic.com has posted some new arial images of construction progress on Disney's Riviera Resort.  The photos show a structure which is at least five stories tall in some locations.  Concept artwork suggests villas on up to eight floors with a rooftop restaurant likely above.  

Ten weeks ago, DVCNews.com posted progress photos which depicted a building just two stories tall in most sections.  

Disney's Riviera Resort is being constructed on land which was formerly part of Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort.  The resort will include about 300 Disney Vacation Club villas, and is scheduled to open in the fall of 2019.

How does WDWMagic know that it will have 300 accommodation units? Are they estimating that number based on the number of floors the size of the building. That number seems high to me as it would make it the size of BLT, which is 15 stories. But then maybe they are not talking about the standard DVC 2BR unit, they could be counting each entrance door to a room, so all lockoff 2BRs count as two units and each dedicated 1BR and dedicated studio would count as one unit. That could really increase the number of units.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what DVC does here with this Resort. I'm tentatively pre-planning a 2020 stay here.
It's also got some trivial personal interest for me in that the Caribbean Beach was my first WDW Resort way back in 1991, and I spent 12 years working as the Bell Captain at the "Riviera", a large resort in Palm Springs, CA.

Sounds like Disney has some lofty expectations to meet! :grin:

I wish they would say what 300 units means. If it is 300 2BR units that will be a very large resort.
