The villas are the 12th resort property for the Disney Vacation Club, and the resort is the first DVC property to feature deluxe studios that sleep up to five guests. Other accommodations include one-bedroom villas, two-bedroom villas, and a grand villa that sleeps 12 guests and features multiple bedrooms and bathrooms in addition to a media room and home theater system.
“The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is yet another example of how we are listening and responding to our members,” said Ken Potrock, senior vice president and general manager, Disney Vacation Club. “The resort builds on the continuing momentum to provide our members with ever-greater choices and experiences.”
The design of the villas mirrors that of their sister resort Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa and also includes some whimsical Disney touches such as the Mary Poppins-themed bronze fountain in the lobby.
The one-bedroom and larger villas features custom Disney artwork, bathrooms with mosaic marble tiles, a mirror with a built-in television, a walk-in shower, and a Victorian-style tub with air bubble jets. The living areas feature a pull-down bed with artwork inspired by Dumbo and Mary Poppins.
Guests at the villas can enjoy all the amenities at the Grand Floridian including Senses – A Disney Spa, dining at Citrico’s, Victoria & Albert’s, 1900 Park Fare, Narcoossee’s, Gasparilla Island Grille, and The Grand Floridian Café, in addition to being able to enjoy the pools and other water activities.
Disney Vacation Club debuted in 1991 and offers members a flexible, points-based system. Today the DVC has nearly 200,000 member families.
