ORLANDO, Fla. – Disney Vacation Club® announced that the new villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa at Walt Disney World Resort will go on sale to members beginning March 3 and to the public on March 31. The expansion of The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa includes 200 proposed resort studios, a Disney Vacation Club room type unique to this property. The Victorian charm and elegance of The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, along with resort access to the monorail, has long made this a favorite home away from home among Disney Vacation Club members.
The proposed new resort studio accommodations, which are expected to open in late June 2022, rise regally in 1890s Victorian splendor on Seven Seas Lagoon, a scenic stroll away from Magic Kingdom Park in the heart of Walt Disney World Resort.
In addition to the new accommodations, The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa also feature elegant and newly enhanced deluxe studios, one- and two-bedroom villas, and spacious three-bedroom grand villas.
From its shoreside location, the resort boasts easy access to the magic of Walt Disney World Resort via monorail, motorcoach and water taxi services. Guests on foot can follow the new walkable promenade leading to and from Magic Kingdom Park.
In this idyllic setting, guests are treated to exceptional dining options as well as numerous entertainment and recreational activities. And to close out another magical day, guests may catch a glimpse of fireworks bursting above Cinderella Castle from the resort property.
“Disney Vacation Club is pleased to offer a diverse inventory of accommodations at The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa – a spectacular location cherished by our members and their families,” said Bill Diercksen, senior vice president and general manager, Disney Vacation Club and Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Hawaii. “To add to the magic, this enhancement comes at a very special time, during the 50th Anniversary celebration of Walt Disney World Resort.”
