New DVC resort studios open at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

Officials at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., last week celebrated the opening of the new resort studios at The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. The recent expansion added more than 200 resort studios providing the opportunity for more Disney Vacation Club members to call this beloved resort “home.”  

In a setting inspired by a garden tea party, Bill Diercksen, senior vice president and general manager, Disney Vacation Club shared the dedication remarks.

“Celebrated for its Victorian architecture and elegance, The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is one of our grandest Disney Vacation Club resorts,” said Diercksen. “Disney Vacation Club is the key to magical vacations year after year, and this expansion is a reflection of our continued commitment to provide members and guests even more opportunities to make lasting vacation memories.”

In addition to the expansion, Diercksen also shared that new enhancements have been made to existing villas, including the elegant deluxe studios, one- and two-bedroom villas, and spacious three-bedroom grand villas that accommodate up to 12 guests.

Just in time to conclude this special “tea party,” Alice, Mad Hatter and the White Rabbit joined the celebration and led the way to the magical key that revealed the first look at the new resort studios.
