Disney's Riviera Resort 2020 Points ChartPoint values for 2019 have not been published. The resort opening is still projected for some unspecified date in "fall 2019." Should villas be available to members during 2019, expect values to mirror these 2020 rates. 

Preferred views are described as having some partial view of the lake, pools, landscaping, or the Disney Skyliner. Standard views overlook other areas including the resort parking lots. 

Initial pricing for Riviera features the same $188 per point base price as Copper Creek Villas & Cabins and Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas with some attractive early incentives for current owners adding-on. 

 Riviera Points  New Buyer Credit  Existing Member Credit 
125 $0  $500
150 $750 $1750
175 $2250 $3150 
250 $4500 $5500
300 $6000 $6750
1000 $27500 $30,500

The discounts for current owners can exceed $22 per point depending upon the amount purchased. For a 250-point add-on, a $22 promotional incentive takes the price down to $166 per point.  These rates are more attractive than current Copper Creek pricing which discounts 250 points by just $11 each

Annual dues for Riviera are set at $8.31 per point for 2019, a rate which should be pro-rated for the first calendar year.
