Hello, DFB friends! We visited some Disney World Resort Hotels this week and we have a lot of updates!
Grand Floridian Resort & Spa Miscellaneous Updates
Gasparilla Island Grill
We found an incredible chocolate cauldron sculpture at Gasparilla Island Grill in Disney’s Grand Floridian! It was hand-decorated by Cast Members at the bakery and it features multiple villains, including the Evil Queen.
This is for display only so we can’t eat it, but it’s so beautiful that we wouldn’t eat it anyway!
Also, we found that last year’s Halloween refillable mugs have returned for $19.99 each. We saw this design in 2019 too.
These mugs are refillable at drink stations in quick service locations in Disney World hotels.
In Basin White, you can now purchase new Halloween-themed bath bombs and soaps, like these Cauldron Bath Bombs for $9.99 each.
We also saw a creepy cute Mickey soap shaped like a pumpkin with Mickey eyes for $5.99!
And there were also Halloween gift bags available.
So stop in Basin White for some fun Halloween and Disney soaps!
Disney’s Contemporary Resort Construction Updates
At the Contemporary Resort, construction continues to progress. We noticed new light fixtures on the first floor near the elevators.
Still, lots of construction remains at the Contemporary.
There were also three large greenery Mickey plants outside at the back of the resort.
And the play area by the pool is still blocked off and continues to be worked on.
The Contemporary is under construction while it’s re-themed with a The Incredibles look.
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort Construction Updates
Inside BouTiki, the Hide and Seek Tiki window statue is back for guests!
And the front entrance of the Polynesian is now open!
Guests can now see the fresh makeover front entrance, including a new stone walkway and lots of beautiful landscaping and greenery.
Coronado Springs Miscellaneous Updates
At the Coronado Springs shop, we spotted a new Coronado Springs Tervis tumbler for $26.99.
Rix Sports Bar & Grill
At Rix inside Coronado Springs, there are new injectable donut holes for $11! We tried the Milk Chocolate and Mixed Berry fillings, but you could also choose Bavarian Cream.
One order comes with 10 donut holes and we LOVED the Mixed Berry filling. The donuts were also delicious!
At a visit to All-Star Movies, we noticed a new sign outside the food court displaying some food options as well as a QR code for Mobile Order.
And Disney’s All-Star Music hotel officially reopened this week! We were able to visit and take a look at all the new updates, including the check-in area.
We also reserved a room to review, so keep an eye out for more information about All-Star Music!
