Annnnnd we’re back! Continuing our exploration of the newest property, Disney’s Riviera Resort today, it’s time to go check out the Voyageurs’ Lounge!
The swanky digs of this stylish new lounge reflect Walt Disney and his wife Lillian’s travels throughout Europe! Being huge Disney buffs, we can’t wait to see the place!
Voyageurs’ Lounge is located on the first floor of Riviera near Le Petit Cafe.
It serves as a sort of gathering place where you can relax, unwind and maybe even share the details of your day’s adventures with fellow travelers!
One wall is lined with a long, cozy banquet with accent pillows and side tables for setting down a good book or resting a tasty espresso drink from Le Petit Cafe! And don’t forget — while Le Petit Cafe is serving up some specialty coffee beverages and pastries by day, in the evening it transforms into a wine and dessert bar! We can’t wait to come back here at night with a nice glass of vino!
The other side of the room showcases a large bookcase holding a library of books similar to the ones Walt collected on his “Grand Tour” through the continent in 1935! There’s also a large community table for playing board games, or perusing a few large coffee table books that have been laid out!
The rest of the books are merely decorative, unfortunately! (Trust us, we tried to pick ’em up, but they’re stuck to the shelves!)
There are also lots of interesting artifacts and pieces of Disneyana — that’s just a fancy word for old-timey Disney stuff! We saw this display case containing some interesting Three Little Pigs items which debuted in 1933.
And there was also this interesting display featuring a vintage Mickey Mouse pop-up book!
Speaking of Mickey Mouse, check out this cool vintage plush doll the Voyageurs’ Lounge has!
Touches of Walt are also sprinkled around the room filling Voyageurs’ Lounge with his presence, from the framed black and white photographs right down to one of Walt’s hats!
Seriously, folks! We could hang out here all day and absorb every tiny bit of minutia in this new space! It’s that comfy AND detailed!
So next time you’re wandering around Disney’s Riviera Resort with a little time on your hands before your Topolino’s dining reservation (read our FULL review of Riviera’s signature dinner service here!), be sure to swing by the Voyageurs’ Lounge for an extra big dose of Disney nostalgia!
