Quite a few changes have been made at several of Disney World’s hotels recently.
Guest rooms at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort have received a Moana-inspired makeover. The rooms at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge have received an update, and some rooms at Disney’s Contemporary Resort have been re-themed to the Incredibles. Now, we’ve got a FIRST LOOK at some new rooms that will be coming to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa!
Earlier this year, Disney announced that BIG room changes would be coming to the Grand Floridian. Specifically, Disney shared that they would be converting one building of hotel rooms into Disney Vacation Club Villas. Starting in spring 2022, Big Pine Key is set to be transformed into 200 Resort Studios, which will open in summer 2022.
Disney has also announced that certain renovations and enhancements will be taking place at the Disney Vacation Club villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. These renovations are set to start in November at the Grand Floridian.
Today, Disney shared a first look at the brand NEW Disney Vacation Club Resort Studios and a sneak peek at the renovated villas that will be coming to the resort.
We’ll start with the studios. According to Disney, the resort studios will feature all kinds of special features like “quartz countertops, ornate crown molding, and luxury patterned tile.” There will also be “a flat-screen TV, a beverage center with a beverage cooler and coffee maker, and a gleaming bathroom with marble tile floors and a combo bath/shower.” These rooms will have 2 queen-size beds and a day bed.
When it comes to the deluxe studios, these will accommodate up to 5 individuals and feature a new pull-down queen-size bed that tucks away into the wall, a queen-size bed, and a pull-down bunk-size bed.
The deluxe studios will also have a full split bathroom, a kitchenette, a small refrigerator, a microwave, a coffeemaker, and a flat-panel TV.
One and two-bedroom villas will be getting a new look and some enhancements as well.
One and two-bedroom villas feature “full kitchens and large living areas…stainless steel appliances, a farmhouse sink, granite countertops, seeded glass door cabinets, a washer and dryer, and more.”
Here’s a peek at the kitchen area for a 1-bedroom villa.
A 1-bedroom villa sleeps up to 5 (king-size bed, pull-down queen-size bed, and a pull-down bunk-size bed).
A 2-bedroom villa sleeps up to 9 and feature “a king-size bed, two queen-size beds, a pull-down queen-size bed, and a pull-down bunk-size bed.”
Looking to go even bigger? The 3-bedroom grand villas sleep up to 12 guests and feature all of the same amenities as the 2-bedroom villas.
Here’s a peek at the living room area for the 3-bedroom grand villas.
According to Disney, “Three-bedroom grand villas feature a spacious dining area, and a lavish living room with a large, flat-panel TV, home theater system, and an additional queen-size sleeper sofa.”
Throughout the rooms you’ll find accents including Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse as Victorian-themed silhouettes. There will also be artwork from Mary Poppins and Dumbo.
According to the Disney Vacation Club, throughout 2022 all room types across Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa are set to receive a refurbished update for guests to enjoy.
We’ll keep an eye out for more details about these refurbishments and we’ll let you know what we find.
