200 More Disney Vacation Club Villas Coming to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Entire Building Being Converted
According to DVCNews.com, approximately 200 rooms at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa are slated to become Disney Vacation Club Villas. The new Villas are scheduled to open in Summer 2022. Booking and sales information will be announced at a later date. Point prices are unknown at this time.
“This is great news for Disney Vacation Club and our Members,” said Terri Schultz, senior vice president, Disney Vacation Club. “It will provide us with new and diverse inventory at a resort that is cherished by our Members and their families.”
The Big Pine Key building will become host to the Disney Vacation Club, turning its rooms into resort studios that sleep up to five guests. Big Pine Key is on the east side of the main building at the resort and faces Seven Seas Lagoon.
The Courtyard Pool is right next door, as well as the pool’s bar. It’s also closer than the other Vacation Club rooms to many amenities, including the lobby, restaurants, boat dock, and path to the Magic Kingdom.
The new Studios will likely be larger than the Grand Floridian’s other Studios because the existing rooms are 447 sq ft instead of the 374 sq ft of the current Studios.

Disney Vacation Club members have been able to call Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa home since 2013. The resort currently has 100 Disney Vacation Club homes, from Studios to Grand Villas.
All Disney Vacation Club owners at the Grand Floridian will pay the same annual dues. The new Studios will belong to the existing condominium association and share an expiry date of January 31st, 2064.
