    Is the Riviera Resort pool a salt water pool? My grandson has an allergy to chlorine based pool chemicals.

    Welcome Home, Kim!

    Disney’s Rivera Resort is absolutely gorgeous! The rooms are both sophisticated and elegant yet comfortable. Take some time to check out the whimsical artwork that blends some of your favorite Disney characters with classic European art styles. Fun fact about the art, it isn’t the same in every villa. There are different variations throughout the resort!

    One of my friends and fellow Panelists, Kaylene, was a Guest at Disney’s Riviera Resort this past summer and was able to confirm for me that the Riviera Pool is chlorine-based. This is consistent with the other pools at the Walt Disney World Resort which are typically always a chlorine-based system. I’m sorry this probably wasn’t the answer you or your grandson were hoping for.

    Since you won’t be headed to the pool with your grandson, what about planning something special together one afternoon? Perhaps a visit to the World of Disney Store at Disney Springs to pick out a souvenir with grandma? (Don’t forget to ask for your Disney Vacation Club merchandise discount!) Or what about a round of miniature golf at Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf? (DVC Members currently save 15% here!) Or make plans to grab a treat and enjoy a showing of a Disney favorite at the nightly Movies Under the Stars.

    I hope one of those ideas sounds like fun. Please let me know what additional questions I can help you with Kim, I love helping fellow Disney Vacation Club Members!

    Wishing you Membership Magic!
