    Hi, we are due to stay at the grand Floridian on 27 march for 8 nights, what extent will we see/hear the planned building works? Will the pool area be unaffected? Thanks

    Greetings Richard!

    Welcome to planDisney! It is lovely to hear that you will soon be on holiday at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. My family and I have been lucky enough to stay there a couple of times. I love the proximity to the parks, the newly renovated rooms and of course, riding the monorail!

    I checked on the refurbishment process when I visited in December and the resort looked great. There are still some construction walls present around the main lobby, but I was told the outer buildings had been completed. The work typically takes place during daytime hours, so it shouldn't be too much of a hassle or distraction during your stay. I checked with a Cast Member and was told they hadn't been notified of any closures to the pool area, so I assume it will remain unaffected. The schedule can change from day to day, so please ensure you check Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa page on the Walt Disney World Resort website, prior to your stay, as they list any refurbishment details there. 

    Speaking of the pool, the Beach Pool at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is one of my children's favorite pools on property. With the slide and the waterfalls, they have so much fun. I highly suggest reserving one of the luxurious poolside cabanas if you plan on spending a day relaxing by the pool. It offers a perfect private place for you and your family to enjoy some quality time in the Florida sunshine.

    Have a wonderful vacation, Richard! If there is anything else we are able to assist you with, please let us know.

    Magical Wishes,
