Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney Riviera Resort Construction Update May 2018 w/Skyliner

Hi everyone!

A couple of days ago, I posted photos from construction on the tower over at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. On the same day, we went to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort for an update as well. Disney Riviera Resort took over some of Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and will be the 15th Disney Vacation Club property. There is a lot of work ongoing at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, including the Skyliner station and towers that are being added now. I won’t be able to get back to the resorts until probably early July with our travel schedule pretty heavy, but I will try to choose a prettier (non-rainy) day next time! The weather has been rainy here pretty consistently over the past couple of weeks or so. I have an update from February as well.

Disney Riviera Resort is scheduled to open in fall 2019 with around 300 DVC units. I haven’t yet seen a lot more information on it.

I took photos from a number of different angles, plus there are some Disney Skyliner gondola construction photos later in the article.

We were walking to the Old Port Royale area.

There is one Skyliner tower in view.

Looking toward the construction on Disney Riviera Resort. Unlike at Disney’s Coronado Springs where the tower is part of the resort, Disney Riviera Resort is a totally new resort.

Signs are up mentioning the refurbishment.

The merchandise truck was closed due to rain.

This area hasn’t really changed since our last update, there is still the Banana Cabana Bar.

Dinner prices and the buffet for guests.

A Disney Skyliner tower is ahead.

Here is a look at the Disney Skyliner artwork for this location.

I hadn’t seen the Spyglass Grill yet and wanted to stop by.

The Disney Skyliner station is in view too.

Several Skyliner towers can be seen here.

My favorite photo to get each visit to the resort.

Here is a look at the menu. I didn’t end up eating here this time because of the limited seating with the rain.

A look inside.

And the sign outside of the counter location.

We should have another update in about 6 weeks!
