The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort

Just a monorail ride, boat ride, or walk away from the Magic Kingdom are The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.  As part of Walt Disney World’s Victorian-themed flagship resort, the villas have a subtle Mary Poppins theme and are in close proximity to some of the best restaurants on property as well as the resort’s spa and shops.  The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa opened in 2013, and DVC contracts there end on January 31, 2064.

In 2022, the villas underwent a soft goods refurbishment, which notably included the addition of Murphy beds. As of June 2022, the villas also include 200 Resort Studios in the Big Pine Key building, which was formerly part of the hotel side of the Grand Floridian.  The Resort Studios are a new room category and unique to the Grand Floridian.  Big Pine Key is part of the same condo association as the original villas building, so those who own DVC points at the Grand Floridian have home resort advantage in either building. 

What DVC Fans Have to Say about The Grand Floridian


Dining options, live music in the lobby, Enchanted Rose, walk-monorail-boat to MK [Magic Kingdom], feature pool, views, grounds, shops, cast members go over and above, resort activities, access to monorail resorts, a boat ride to Geyser Point, the decor and elegance. –Christina R.

I absolutely love the Grand Floridian. It is everything I want from a vacation with its casual elegance and upscale amenities. Shopping, fine dining, monorail service… this resort has it all. –Adrianna S.

Gorgeous, luxurious resort. Clean, spacious, beautiful rooms. Excellent dining options. Numerous shopping options (Basin!!) Piano in the lobby. Enchanted Rose lounge is a destination in and of itself. Nice pools. Boat and monorail to MK [Magic Kingdom]. BLT [Bay Lake Tower] is known for its Theme park view and walking path to MK, but I would argue that GF’s [Grand Floridian’s] views and path are a million times better. –Karen M.

Great room size, decor and layout. Grand villa has a 4th bedroom [if counting the media room] -Six restaurants (including Victoria & Albert’s) -Almost no bad views from any room -Walking trail to MK [Magic Kingdom] – Quick monorail access to MK-beautiful grounds -Quick walk to Poly –Scott B.

Pros are definitely views of [Seven Seas Lagoon], being on the monorail loop, top notch dining, walking path to MK [Magic Kingdom], better shopping than most resorts, recently renovated rooms, has a spa, some new studios will have theme park view and of course the holiday decorations. –Josh H.


Last stop on the monorail. Only one stop from the Magic Kingdom but you often have to stand. Last stop on the way back to the resort which means it can take 30 minutes or more at busy times. –Jason R.

Main DVC building is too far from things. Some rooms just might be closer to the new Poly than to the main Grand building. –Juan B.

Point cost -As of now will be harder to book the original DVC building. –Matthew C.

Price and points charts, outside buildings to get to main facilities, lobby can feel like a zoo at Christmas as it is a destination itself. –Alison H.

Not really a luxury resort. I just stayed at the Ritz-Carlton Grand Lakes Orlando and it showed that VGF [the Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian] has a long way to go to be luxury and a flagship resort like it claims to be. –Dennis O.

Room Details

Room categories at the Grand Floridian include Standard View, Lake View, and Theme Park View. The original villas building offers Standard View and Lake View villas whereas Big Pine Key offers all 3 view types.  The Resort Studios are too new to comment on availability trends, but the Standard View villas in the original villas building tend to go more quickly at the 11-month mark due to their low point value. Photos of different balcony views can be found on the DISboards.

Villa types at the Grand Floridian include Resort Studios, Deluxe Studios, One-Bedroom Villas, Two-Bedroom Villas, and Three-Bedroom Grand Villas.  One-Bedroom Villas and larger have full size kitchens stocked with pots, pans, and kitchenware and washers/dryers. Detergent is provided. Deluxe Studios have kitchenettes with a microwave, toaster, coffeemaker, mini-fridge, and sink. They also have paper plates, bowls, towels, and cups as well as plastic cutlery and dishwashing liquid. Resort Studios have a beverage cooler (not to be confused with a mini-fridge) and Keurig coffee maker in lieu of a kitchenette.  They do not have microwaves or toasters.

Resort Studios

Located in the Big Pine Key building, the 440-square-foot Resort Studios accommodate up to 5 guests with 2 queen-size beds and a single daybed.  There are about 200 Resort Studios available.  While it is too early to know the availability trends of the Resort Studios, it is speculated that they will be easier to book than the villas in the original building. 

Deluxe Studios 

At 374 square feet, Deluxe Studios accommodate up to 5 guests with a queen-size bed, queen-size Murphy bed, and a single pull-down bed under the television, and they have 1 bathroom with both a shower/tub combo and a separate shower.  There are 47 Deluxe Studios at the Grand Floridian, and they are typically the first rooms to book up.

One-Bedroom Villas

These 844-square-foot villas can accommodate up to 5 guests. One-Bedroom Villas have a king-size bed, a queen-size Murphy bed, and a single pull-down bed, and there is 1 bathroom. There are 47 One-Bedroom Villas at the Grand Floridian, and they tend to have better availability than Deluxe Studios though this may change with the addition of the Resort Studios.

Two-Bedroom Villas

The Grand Floridian has Dedicated Two-Bedroom Villas as well as Two-Bedroom Lock-Off Villas.  Lock-Off Villas consist of a One-Bedroom Villa and an adjoining Deluxe Studio.

The 1,232-square-foot Dedicated Two-Bedroom Villas can accommodate up to 9 guests with a king-size bed, 2 queen-size beds, a queen-size Murphy bed, and a single pull-down bed, and there are 2 bathrooms. There are about 47 Dedicated Two-Bedroom Villas. The Standard View Two-Bedroom Villas tend to have less availability than the Lake View ones.

The 1,218-square-foot Two-Bedroom Lock-Off Villas can accommodate up to 10 guests with a king-size bed, 2 queen-size Murphy beds, queen-size bed, and 2 single pull-down beds, and there are 2 bathrooms. There are about 47 Two-Bedroom Lock-Off Villas. Since these villas partly consist of Deluxe Studios, the availability patterns for Two-Bedroom Lock-Off Villas follow those of Deluxe Studios.

Three-Bedroom Grand Villas

There are 6 Grand Villas at the Grand Floridian. All of them are Lake View villas.  Each is about 2,800 square feet and can accommodate up to 12 guests with a king-size bed, 4 queen-size beds, and a queen-size sleeper sofa. There are 3 bathrooms. With so few Grand Villas available at the Grand Floridian, availability is often limited at the 7-month mark and under.
