Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is considered one of the most luxurious hotels on Disney property by many guests, and it just got a whole lot fancier!
The Big Pine Key building at this resort recently underwent a total renovation and now includes updated Disney Vacation Club Villas. We had seen some sneak peeks of the new rooms, but now we’re taking you on a full room tour!
It’s hard to miss Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, with its iconic red roofs and expansive property. This Victorian-style hotel brings unexpected elegance to Disney World, not to mention that it’s one of the Magic Kingdom resorts – putting you almost in the middle of the action!
The main lobby of the Grand Floridian is just that – grand. High ceilings and chandeliers really give off that high-end vibe. The Grand Flo is also home to several restaurantsincluding Grand Floridian Cafe, Gasparilla Island Grilland Victoria & Albert’s.
But, the new DVC Villas are over in the Big Pine Key buildingso that’s where we’ll start the tour!
When you enter the building, you’re immediately met with a completely refreshed lobby seating area. Although there aren’t any check-in desks like your typical lobby, there are plenty of places to have a seat.
As you make your way through the building and over to the guest rooms, you’ll notice gorgeous floral accents along the walls…
… And plenty of chairs in case you need to sit down!
We’re taking you on a tour of a 2-bedroom Lake View Villa, but there are also studios, deluxe studios, and 1-bedroom villas as well! This room starts at 54 DVC points per night.
When you walk in, you’re met with a view of the full kitchen…
… And there’s also a breakfast nook and eating area as well.
On the other side of the kitchen is the main living areawhich includes a sofa that pulls out into a queen bed…
… A pull-out twin bedand a television.
Oh, and can we talk about these views?!
Since we’re in a 2-bedroom villa, let’s take a look at the primary bedroom first! There’s a king bed with a nightstand on either side, plus a chair…
Opposite and opposite the bed you’ll find a dresser, televisionand desk with another chair.
Each bedroom has an attached bathroom, and this one is HUGE! There’s a vanity with large mirror and sinkalong with H2O bath products…
… And a free-standing bath tub as well.
In between the two bedrooms is a hallway that has another desk and chairwhich leads you to the…
…second bathroom! This one also has a large vanity with mirror, plus a waterfall shower.
There’s also another bath tuband of course, the toilet.
The second bathroom leads you right into the second bedroom – how about that ?! In this room you’ll find two queen beds…
… Plus a dresser, televisionand table with two chairs.
And we had to take a picture of these adorable Mickey & Minnie silhouettes on the wall, too!
