How to Get to Disney’s Riviera Resort

This new resort at Walt Disney World sits adjacent to the Caribbean Beach Resort and boasts a place on the Disney Skyliner line. As a Disney Skyliner Resort, you can easily get to the Riviera from EPCOT or Hollywood Studios simply by hopping aboard the skyliner. As such, if you’re staying at other skyliner resorts; Art of Animation, and Pop Century, you can also easily hop aboard the skyliner, and then transfer to the EPCOT line, which will take you to the Riviera stop next.

If you’re staying at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort then you can simply walk over to the Riviera Resort, as it holds a place on the edge of the lake these two resorts share. And of course, if you’re driving, you’re welcome to park at the Riviera Resort for up to 3 hours, with any valid dining reservation.
