Stairwell Reconstruction Underway For The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

As sections of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa are currently undergoing reconstruction and renovation for the upcoming Disney Vacation Club Resort Studios at the resort, we spotted a set of stairs undergoing full reconstruction at The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. We’ve kept our eyes on this project lately, with our most recent sighting focusing on roof construction.

The actual stairs are back, but new paneling has yet to be installed around the staircase.

Crew members in cherry pickers were working on the staircase tower.

As we reported last time, construction on the roof seems to be wrapping up.

We could also see some faded shingles and exposed sheathing on this roof.

The new Resort Studio rooms start at 16 Disney Vacation Club points per night and go all the way up to 55 points per night, depending on view and season. This pricing aligns with Deluxe Studios at the Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.

However, the Resort Studios offer Theme Park View rooms, costing more points. Previously The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa did not offer Theme Park View rooms.

We previously got a look at the interior of the new villas and Disney released a short documentary on the expansion.

  1. There’s so much old-world charm in the architecture and exterior of GF. Looking at these renovations, it appears that much of those details have been retained. I was worried that the simple, white-box building of the main villas from 2011 would be transferred to these “resort villas”.
