Len Testa starts off this week’s show by sharing his impressions of the latest Disney Vacation Club property to open at Walt Disney World. Then Jim Hill shares the history of the hotel that shares this space with WDW’s Riviera Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

What design elements Disney’s Riviera Resort has in common with that other DVC property which recently got added to WDW’s on-site room inventory, the Gran Destino Tower at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort

Which menu items are worth seeking out at Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riveria

Why – if you suffer from claustrophobia – you should probably avoid booking a Tower Studio unit at Disney’s Riviera Resort

How did 9/11 impact day-to-day operations at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort

What did WDW insiders call that collection of convention-friendly hotels (i.e., the Dolphin & the Swan, Disney’s Boardwalk Inn, the Yacht & Beach Club) that were built next to Epcot in the late 1980s / early 1990s
