The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa will reflect the elegant features and ambiance of its sister resort hotel. The story behind Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa begins in the late 1890s, when Florida was established as a vacation destination for well-heeled visitors who turned the beaches along both shores of the Sunshine State into their personal winter playgrounds.
The spirit of the celebrated hotels that dotted the shoreline, and the essence of their classic Victorian styling and exquisite details, have been vividly captured in Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Since its debut in 1988, it has evoked the fabled "golden age of travel"—an era when families embarked on epic tours, staying at grand hotels around the world—while inviting modern-day vacationers to enjoy the classic summer beach getaway.
Scheduled to open in October 2013, The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa combines the elegance of the Victorian era with the convenience of modern amenities. Guests can stay in spacious accommodations featuring crown molding, granite countertops, and a mirror TV in each bathroom in addition to these comforts of home that come standard in a Disney Vacation Club Villa.
The following fine dining options will be available to Members just a short stroll away at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa:
Swimming at the Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa offers two options. If you prefer a quieter setting, then the Courtyard Pool, nestled in the midst of this beautiful resort, is perfect. A hot tub is also available to relax in. If you prefer a more lively time, the grotto themed Beach Pool with its slides and waterfalls will more than meet your expectations. You're welcome to head to the private sandy beach where you'll find canopied lounge chairs, but please note that swimming in the Seven Seas Lagoon is prohibited.
A kiddie pool is available for the littlest guests, as well as an Alice in Wonderland-themed water play area. An upside-down Mad Hatter's hat fills with water, then dumps onto guests when it is full. A large teapot pours its contents into a series of teacups that will rain down on the guests below. Two mini waterslides, sprinklers and water spouts complete this play area.
Other water-related recreational activities include rentals at the marina of water mice, sail boats, pontoon boats, pedal boats or water skiing.
