PHOTOS: Inside Model Rooms of “The Villas at the Grand Floridian”

Earlier today, I was lucky enough to get a tour of the model villas for “The Villas at the Grand Floridian” which will be opening in October. Here are photos I took of the deluxe studio and one-bedroom villa model rooms:

First we will look at the studio

I’m not surprised to see Mary Poppins in the room, but The Happiest Millionaire? A really cool obscure reference!

Hard to see, but the shower is huge! You could fit a lot of people in there…

While I felt like the studio was nothing special, I felt the one-bedroom villa was just about the nicest Disney hotel room I have ever seen. While we have to wait a few more months to see the building completed, The room models have certainly wet my appetite for this new Disney Vacation Club Resort.

What do you think of these model rooms?

  1. Look really great, the bathrooms and that shower are particuarly impressive. Where havre they built the model rooms? Are they in a section of the new building or elsewhere?

  2. I would love to stay in the one bedroom villa! The TV in the bathroom mirror is the coolest thing I have ever saw in a Walt Disney World resort hotel.

  3. The villa does look beautiful! Happiest Millionaire was one of my favorite movies as a kid – very cool to see it's stamp in the rooms.

  4. Confused. The studio has a pull out bed from that piece of furniture (with Dumbo). Does the couch pull out? Does a studio sleep 5? Same with the one bedroom. King bed, pull out couch (?) and pull out bed (with two kids in picture on bed)? Also sleep 5? Not that I would want to sleep 5 in a studio, just asking.

  5. Looks nice. I wish I had enough points for a sizable 1br stay. By the way, it's "WHET my appetite".
