Tour the Three Bedroom Grand Villa at Disney’s Riviera Resort

When it comes to luxurious accommodations at Walt Disney World, the three-bedroom grand villa at Disney’s Riviera Resort is difficult to outshine. This suite features all the bells and whistles you could possibly desire.

In this review, we’ll preview Riviera’s three-bedroom grand villa. You may remember, I recently had the opportunity to tour several of the Disney Vacation Club properties with a few members.

Of all the suites I’ve toured or stayed in at Disney World, this one tops the cake. I even liked it more than the Bora Bora Bungalows at Disney’s Polynesian, which were also impressive.

Let me start by saying, Disney’s Riviera Resort is an excellent hotel option. Secondly, this suite is gorgeous, and I’m happy to have the opportunity to share it with you.

Before we look any further, here are a few of the specifics for the three-bedroom grand villa:

  • Sleeps up to 12 adults
  • Bedroom 1 (King Bed)
  • Bedroom 2 (2 Queen Beds)
  • Bedroom 3 (2 Queen Beds)
  • Living Room 1 Queen Size Sleeper Sofa
  • Full Kitchen with an Island
  • Formal Dining Room
  • 3 Full Baths
  • Laundry Room (Washer and Dryer)
  • Approximately 2500 square feet

At the time of this review, it costs 108 points per night to rent this room through Disney’s Vacation Club. For those paying out of pocket, the villa averages $3500.00 per night. Let’s see why. (Current point rates are available here.)

Below we have a look at the large open floor plan. Note the coffered ceilings and detailed paneling in the walls. The sofa has a built-in sleeper in case you need the extra bed.

The grand villa feels like a modern-day New York penthouse with the very best furnishings.

And the formal dining room has a table with chairs that extends to seat all 12 guests if needed. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t mind having Christmas dinner here sometime.

The two of us could sit at each end of the table and slide things back and forth to each other. You could say, “Hey, Disney! Play A Pirate’s Life for Me,” and music would fill the air. I can’t help giggling, thinking about it.

Sorry, I got a little carried away there. But who wouldn’t?

The kitchen features anything you would ever need to prepare a meal. The cabinets are stocked with dishes, pots, pans, and glasses. In addition, you’ll likely want to have groceries delivered for the stay.

Here is a close-up. There is sufficient counter space, a built-in microwave, and a cooktop with an oven.

On the opposite side sits a long island that features a dishwasher, sink, and seating area.

The large double doors to the far right of the kitchen hold a full-size washer and dryer. Being able to do laundry in your room at Walt Disney World is a true amenity.

Riviera’s three-bedroom grand villa has a split floor plan. On one side of the living space is the master suite. The secondary guest bedrooms are located on the opposite side of the living area.

Below is a photo of the first guest suite. This room has two queen beds and a private balcony.

It’s a gorgeous room that felt about the size of an average hotel room.

Across the hallway, you’ll find the full bath for this room. This guest bath features a vanity area, walk-in shower, and separate water closet.

At the very back of the villa is the second guest bedroom. This bedroom is a bit larger than the previous guest room. You might notice it has a separate side door out to the balcony. Additionally, benches sit at the end of each bed.

The artwork in this room was from Wall-E.

The secondary guest bedroom has an attached full bath. This bath was a little smaller than the previous one. However, it features a tub with a shower combination.

Below is another look at the layout.

Back on the other side of the three-bedroom grand villa, we have the master suite.

And it’s a magnificent master suite indeed.

In the corner, there was plenty of closet space and a nice reading chair with an ottoman.

We happened to be in a corner room, so there were windows looking out in two directions. That’s not something you see every day in hotel rooms.

The side of the room looked out to the Beau Soleil pool. It’s the resort’s quiet pool.

And the backside had a balcony looking out to beautiful Barefoot Bay and Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.

Of course, with every lovely master bedroom comes an en suite master bath. This one didn’t disappoint.

The large soaking tub sits in an open space. The water fixture for it is mounted on the wall in a very Italian way.

Additionally, there’s a large walk-in master shower with a rainfall showerhead and detachable showerheads.

A large double vanity provides plenty of counter space and storage underneath.

As far as hotels rooms go, I think we can all agree; you could do much worse.

Overall, the three-bedroom grand villa at the Riviera felt very French, with hints of Italian details here and there. And I think that’s how a resort room modeled after the French Riviera is supposed to feel, don’t you?

As for Disney’s Riviera Resort, I encourage you to plan a stay here or, at the very least, visit for dining during your next trip. The resort has a variety of room categories. We have an article covering the tower studio, which sleeps up to two guests.

Additionally, we preview a standard deluxe studio in our review of the Riviera Resort. And every single article related to Disney’s Riveria is available here.

For dining reservations at the Riviera, I recommend the following:

It’s no secret that all of the restaurants at Disney’s Riviera are phenomenal. You might not need so many groceries for that grand villa stay, after all! I know I would end up ordering from Primo Piatto multiple times. Those lemon ricotta pancakes for breakfast are really something.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this review of the three-bedroom grand villa at Disney’s Riviera Resort. Are you thinking of planning a stay here?
