Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort is getting new Resort Studios, which will be DVC rooms located in the Big Pine Key building of the hotel. Construction on these studios just began on March 1st, but we already got to tour a model for what these fancy rooms will look like! Come along with us to see the new studios!
We headed to the Grand Floridian for a tour of the new DVC Resort Studios, which are the first of their kind in Disney World. This hotel already has villas (which are being refurbished as well), but these will be the first Resort Studios.
Although the new rooms are coming to the Big Pine Key building, the model room we toured was located in a different building. Let’s head inside and take a look!
The new studios are themed after Mary Poppins Returns, which is the same theme that can be found at the Citricos restaurant located at this hotel. You can see the theme in the artwork and also in some details around the room.
The main room area has two beds, a dresser and TV, and a couch that converts into a daybed. Above the couch were some gorgeous watercolor paintings depicting a scene from the movie!
There are instructions near the sofa that detail how to change it into a bed.
The main beds have soft teal headboards with little reading lights on either side. The jeweled tones here contrast with paler pastels throughout the rest of the room. There’s a nightstand between the two beds with a lamp, a phone, and a couple of drawers.
The large cabinet beside the beds opens for more storage space, and you can find a couple of robes and some extra pillows and blankets inside. Just behind these cabinets is a coffee station with a cabinet that opens up as a small fridge.
Take a look at the beautiful Mary Poppins Returns artwork displayed over that coffee station!
This room has a desk area outside of the bathroom, which has a table and stool, along with a mirror.
The wall in this area has a mural of flowers and birds, which adds to the whimsical theme.
The bathroom has a vanity with two sinks and a separate area for the toilet and shower. The gold tones and pastels continue into this room…
…and you can see more watercolor artwork here as well.
The water closet has a shower/tub combo and more gold-toned fixtures.
Back in the main room, we checked out the view. Keep in mind that this room is located in a different area than where the Resort Studios will actually be. The new rooms will all be located in the Big Pine Key building, whereas this model room was in a different building.
We want to highlight a few details that really brought in the Mary Poppins Returns theme. First of all, did you spot that fancy chandelier in the main room?
The inside ring has lights that look like candles, but the outside has several little glass birds!
The lampshade on the nightstand also brought in the whimsical theme with more flowers and Mary Poppins’ iconic umbrella.
And we were so excited to find a hidden Mickey in the air vent! But this vent went a step further — there were also hidden umbrellas to match the Mary Poppins theme. Can you spot them? Here’s a hint — they’re really close to that hidden Mickey.
The new rooms will open at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort this summer. The pre-sale for DVC members opened on March 3rd, and DVC members can book these rooms beginning March 14th. Guests who are not DVC members can book these rooms beginning March 31st.
The new rooms look beautiful, and we’re excited to see these and other updates coming to the Grand Floridian. Keep following DFB for more of the latest Disney World news!
