    Heading to the Rivera , last minute surprise for our teens for Christmas. Booked a Studio but really need a bit more room and privacy. Can we upgrade at the Front desk upon check in ?

    Hi Candace! Welcome to planDisney!

    I have a feeling this is going to be a Christmas your teens will not soon forget! A visit to the Walt Disney World Resort during the holidays is such a magical time!

    Disney's Riviera Resort has quickly become a family favorite of ours. It's absolutely gorgeous and has something for Guests of all ages to enjoy. This is also a Deluxe Villas Resort, which means there are studios, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom options. If you are looking for a resort room with more space, you'll need to check the availability to see if a different room type will be an option. While this may be done upon arrival at the front desk of the Riviera Resort, I highly suggest calling the Disney Resort Hotel Reservation line and speaking with a Cast Member for assistance. They will be able to check on availability and see if an upgrade is possible to a larger room type.

    I love that this resort is located right along the Disney Skyliner path and has direct access to both Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. It makes traveling to your destination as easy as possible. You're also within walking distance of one of my favorite restaurants at Walt Disney World. Sebastian's Bistro is located at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort and is only a five-minute walk from the Riviera. The House-made Coconut-Pineapple Bread Pudding is worth the trip alone!

    Candace, I hope you have a wonderful holiday celebrating at Walt Disney World! Make sure to try some of the tasty sweet treats that can be found around the parks and resorts during this season.

    See ya real soon!
