Check Out Artwork at Disney’s Riviera Resort in Walt Disney World

Disney’s Riviera Resort is set to open at Walt Disney World Resort later this year. The new resort has a European theme, but done in a way that only Disney Imagineering can create. Per Disney Parks Blog, ” Drawing inspiration from the Mediterranean region’s art history, the collection celebrates a unique blend of Disney characters and icons, European storytelling, and the fine art stylings of master artists who found inspiration along the Riviera during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.” We have a look at some of the art that was created exclusively for the resort to check out below!

Enjoy this up close reveal of these signature pieces created exclusively for the resort:

“Still Life with Teapot” – Lumiere, Mrs. Potts, Chip and Cogsworth from “Beauty and the Beast” (1991)

“During the early-20th-century, artists along the Riviera were exploring ways to make still life objects come to life on a flat canvas. Artists would first break the objects into individual shapes and forms, then accentuate each object with strong outlines.”

“Girl with Lanterns” – Panel showcasing Rapunzel from “Tangled” (2010)

“The dramatic hues of sunset inspired Disney artists in painting Rapunzel and Pascal as they watch the glowing lanterns illuminate the evening sky, creating a delightful pattern of shape and color.”

“The Seaside Nap” – Mickey Mouse and Pluto

“Harkening back to Disney’s cartoon origins, this coastal Riviera scene is styled to reflect the vintage characteristics of early black and white cartoon art.”

Disney’s Riviera Resort is currently expected to open to guests starting on December 16th, 2019. Reservations are already available, so you can start booking yours! (You can also message me for help!)

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
