Today we’re getting a first look at the soft goods refurbishment project that is now underway at The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa!
Huge thank you to Bob Dickens, who recently checked into a newly refurbished one-bedroom villa and shared some photos with us over in the DVC Fan Facebook Group!
The villa’s most noticeable change is the much-anticipated addition of the pull-down Murphy Bed that replaces the previous pull-out couch bed. This has now found its way into Riviera Resort, Saratoga Springs, Polynesian, Grand Floridian and is rumored to be a part of the upcoming refurbishment at Boulder Ridge as well.
New updates and additions to the Grand Floridian Villas include:
- New upholstery on the kitchen chairs and bench
- Queen Size Murphy Bed (queen size)
- New living room area rug
- Updated carpet in main bedroom
- Headboard and new decorative pillow for main bedroom
- New bathroom mirrors
Fans of the resort will also notice that the following items have been removed from the rooms as part of the soft goods refurbishment:
- Rolling benches
- Girl with bike and Duffy picture
- TV’s in the bathroom mirrors
Work appears to have recently been completed on the sixth floor of the resort, with crews moving onto the fifth and fourth floors at this time. The hallways throughout the villas are also receiving a minor refresh with updated carpeting and paint. If you’ve got an upcoming trip planned, it seems requesting an upper floor may be your best option and getting a sparkly new villa!
Disney previously provided us with a look at these refurbished villas when they shared with us more information regarding the highly anticipated expansion of the Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
