Riviera is awful? Gran Destino?
I’m not saying any of them are the Ritz...they aren’t, but awful? The EPCOT resorts are too convenient to be awful, although they all need refurbs.
I haven't really seen much of Gran Destino, but yes, the Riviera is pretty awful.
It looks like any number of random generic mid to high level (not luxury) hotels; there are very similar looking hotels scattered around Atlanta. I'm not looking for a generic box tower when I'm at Disney.
The EPCOT resorts are not awful. They do need some work, but they're much much better than the Riviera. The Riviera is the last place I'd want to stay on Disney property outside of the value resorts.
