Direct sales for the new addition to The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa are now on sale to current member add-on purchases!
Sales resumed today at the new price point of $207 per point (before direct incentives). Current direct incentives take this price as low as $186 per point for a member looking to add around 200 points to their Disney Vacation Club membership.
This new property is paired with some extraordinary savings opportunities for those looking to add on! Standard pricing starts at $207 per point, but members can receive the following limit-time incentives if purchasing before March 30th, 2022:
|When You Purchase…||You’ll Save…|
|125 to 149 Vacation Points||$1,000 to $1,192 ($8 Per Point)|
|150 to 174 Vacation Points||$1,500 to $1,740 ($10 Per Point)|
|175 to 199 Vacation Points||$2,275 to $2,587 ($13 Per Point)|
|200 to 249 Vacation Points||$4,200 to $5,229 ($21 Per Point)|
|250 to 299 Vacation Points||$5,500 to $6,578 ($22 Per Point)|
The first 500 members to add-on at the new Grand Floridian Villas will also receive an exclusive 4-piece luggage set valued at $350. This includes a duffel bag, canvas drawstring bag, canvas pouch, and luggage tag in brown and green with the Grand Floridian logo.
The new resort studios are slightly larger than Grand Floridian’s current studios at 440 square feet and will feature two queen beds as well as a day bed which gives a capacity of up to five guests. Unlike current DVC studios, these will not include a minifridge, microwave, or toaster, and instead will have a “beverage station” (basically a box that keeps drinks cool) and a coffee maker.
This highly anticipated expansion of the Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is slated to be open to members in Summer 2022, with work beginning soon to convert the existing hotel rooms in Big Pine Key to 200 all-new Disney Vacation Club studios.
Standard, Lake, and Theme Park Views will be available with points per night ranging from 24 to 54 vacation points.
As a reminder, DVC has already announced that these new studios will be part of the current condo association for Grand Floridan which means they should be bookable to owners who can currently book Grand Floridian at 11 and 7 month windows and should expire in 2064 with the rest of the resort. This also means that the newly sold points will likely not contain the same resale restrictions that have been a point of contention at Disney’s Riviera Resort. The added studios should help satisfy some of the high demand for this beautiful resort.
Prior to sales being halted following the announcement of these villas, Grand Floridian was selling for a direct sold-out price of $255 per point. Resuming sales at $207 per point places it in the same field as Disney Vacation Club’s other active properties, Aulani & Riviera, which are also currently selling at $207 per point (before incentives). This price is also $48 per point lower (before incentives) than the resort was selling at less than one year ago making it a significant reduction in the value of the Grand Floridian Villas.
