We’re seeing quite a few changes to Disney World’s hotels!
As hotels like Disney’s Beach Club Resort and Disney’s BoardWalk Inn prepare to reopen, others like Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and Disney’s Contemporary Resort are undergoing refurbishment. And now, over at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, some BIG changes are underway.
The Grand Floridian is a Disney Vacation Club Resort, which means it has a group of villas set aside for its DVC members. And today, Disney announced that they are expanding these offerings! One building of hotel rooms will be converted into Villas for DVC guests.
Starting in spring 2022, Big Pine Key (that’s Building 9!) will be transformed into 200 Resort Studios, which will open in summer 2022. These studios will accommodate up to 5 guests apiece.
Terri Schultz, Senior Vice President of the Disney Vacation Club, shared, “This is great news for Disney Vacation Club and our Members. It will provide us with new and diverse inventory at a resort that is cherished by our Members and their families.”
The Grand Floridian currently has 100 DVC rooms as a part of its Villas, ranging from Deluxe Studios to 3-bedroom Grand Villas. These 200 additional studios will triple the hotel’s options for members. However, they will also reduce the options for normal rooms, potentially making reservations for non-DVC guests harder to snag. You’ll want to keep that in mind if you’re planning a stay here once construction begins next spring.
