    Have the pool showers been reopened at the Grand Floridian? Looking to plan for our departure day on our trip in a few weeks. Thanks!!

    Well hello there Karen, and welcome to planDisney!

    As a Disney Vacation Club member, there's just something so nice to be able to call Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa home. I'm sure my planDisney pal and Festie Bestie Aena can also attest to how refreshing and convenient it is to take some time out of your stay at relax by the pool, and I think it's definitely an excellent way to spend your departure day if you have a later flight out of Orlando!

    You'll be happy to hear that though they were temporarily closed for a time, the showers located by the Pools at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa have been open as of our most recent stay this year! Bear in mind that the availability of these amenities is always subject to change and may always close for maintenance without prior notice, so it's worth popping by earlier during your stay and asking the Cast Members on the Recreation team if they foresee any random closures on your departure day. My husband and I personally love using the Beach Pool during the morning and early afternoon when most of our fellow guests are out and about at the Theme Parks, and opting for the Courtyard Pool in the evening for a chance to glimpse Happily Ever After fireworks above the rooftops and reflecting on the water.

    Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa has been undergoing a bit of a lengthy transformation, and you'll be fortunate this summer that you'll likely avoid many of the construction walls around the pools that we had experienced on our stay. You may however, notice extensive work being done in the central lobby, with large sections being blocked off as of our last visit this month. While it hopefully doesn't detract too much from your experience this summer, we took the opportunity to chat with the Imagineers hard at work with their distinctively shiny head protection about the things that they'll be working on to reimagine our historic home.

    Personally, we think they knocked it out of the park with Narcoosee's which feels so much more open and airy while still retaining that classic waterside vibe we know and love. Be sure to check out the Disney Parks Blog for the latest and greatest updates this summer and you're always welcome back at planDisney again for more bits of Disney knowledge ahead of your next adventure!

    Wishing you all the best on your quest for the showers you seek after your stay!
