Construction continues on the villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
The villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa have announced an expansion and construction is underway. We stopped to see how things were going.
Construction began March 1, and the new Grand Floridian villas will be available for Disney Vacation Club members to book this summer.
On the right side, you can see construction walls have been erected around one side of Big Pine Key, the location of the new Studio Resort Villas.
You will find the Big Pine Key building near the courtyard pool and main lobby.
Disney began selling the new Villas units at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa in early March 2022.
Scaffolding has been erected in front of the bedroom balconies.
These Resort Studio units are the first rooms of this type at Disney Vacation Club.
The main difference between a deluxe studio and a resort studio is that the latter does not offer a kitchenette. Resort Studios are more like standard luxury hotel rooms.
Resort Studio rooms start at 16 Disney Vacation Club points per night and go up to 55 points per night, depending on view and season. This price aligns with the Deluxe Studio Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.
However, Resort Studios offer rooms with a view of the theme park, which costs more points. Previously, Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa did not offer theme park view rooms.
We were able to see the interior of the new villas last week. Disney also released a short documentary about the expansion last week.
