    Hi, can you update us on the renovations affecting the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa please? For instance - are they completed yet? If not are they intrusive? Is the Gym open for use? Etc etc Many Thanks

    Hello Colin and welcome to planDisney!

    As a Disney Vacation Club owner of the Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, the seemingly constant state of renovation that has encompassed the entirety of the resort over the past few years has been something whose progress I've closely tracked and observed - and it's great to see that this is hopefully nearing its end this year. I passed by this past week to have a look and from what I could see along with some insights from the Cast Members here's the current status on the renovations and refurbishments:

    • The most recent work being completed appears to have taken place up on the roof of the main lobby building at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, as well as the front entrance and area adjacent to the far end of 1900 Park Fare which recently reopened to guests this year following an extended closure. During my most recent visit the most noticeable parts are just alongside the entrance to the lobby from the porte-cochère with construction walls blocking off the remaining work to be done; the Bell Services Cast Members anticipate that this should hopefully be finished by the summertime.
    Though there currently aren't any scheduled completion dates or details available to be shared to guests, it's good to know that much of the work has been completed - especially as far as the rooms across each of the resort buildings. Be sure to stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for any new updates if they get announced and don't hesitate to come back to planDisney again if any updates pop up that you'd like us to look into!

    Here's to having a restful and hopefully renovation-free stay on your upcoming summer holiday!
