UPDATE: Disney has updated the reopening list to reflect that Bar Riva WILL be reopening with Disney’s Riviera Resort.
Walt Disney World is preparing to re-open this week while many of the Disney hotels are already open and operational. Some restaurants will modify the dining experience while others are not set to re-open until further notice.
Disney’s Riviera Resort was one of the Disney resorts to re-open first. Here, we got our first taste of what it is like experiencing character dining under the new conditions. As operations continue to update we noticed that one of the resorts onsite bars has been removed from Disney’s list of available dining locations.
Earlier, we reported Bar Riva, the resort’s pool bar, as being listed under the available dining experiences at Disney’s Riviera Resort. In fact, when the resort reopened on June 22nd, we checked out the newly reopened pool bar ourselves!
Some establishments like Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar were closed immediately due to the Florida Alcohol Ban. After some evaluation, Jock Lindsey’s has since re-opened again. There is no indication of reasoning behind Bar Riva’s unavailability as of yet. We will continue to keep you updated as events unfold.
