Penguin Fountain Grand Floridian
Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa is one of the most iconic resorts on Disney property.  There are SO many great reasons to stay at this resort, in fact – I did a blog on the Top 5 Reasons to stay here. Aside from the regular resort rooms though, in a separate building is the Disney Vacation Club rooms, the Villas as they’re called.  What is a Deluxe Villa Studio?  I’ve got all the answers below on what I love about these rooms!

5 Reasons I Love The Deluxe Studio Villa At Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort

1 They have a little kitchenette

You can’t cook in it – and that’s fine by me.  I don’t like to cook at home, so I wouldn’t do it on vacation.  What I do like is the coffee maker, toaster and sink… feels like a spot to have our snacks or a cup of tea.  While all rooms now have the mini fridge – this kitchenette has a microwave.  Perfect for heating up some leftovers I brought home from dinner for a late night snack!

2 They have a Dumbo bed

Seriously – a Dumbo bed!!  Now this is meant for kids, but this fold down bed (trundle bed) is incredible.  Look inside!  Who doesn’t want to sleep in a bed that has Dumbo inside??

3 They have 2 showers

When you travel with a family, getting ready can be a bit tricky!  Sometimes I travel with 3 or 4 women in a room, all trying to get ready at the same time!  It’s a scheduling nightmare in some rooms, but in the Deluxe Studios at Disney’s Grand Floridian – you get 2 showers!  There is a gorgeous stand up shower as well as a bathtub/shower combo!  2 people can get ready at the same time – cutting the time in the morning to get out the door in half!

4 It’s at the Grand Floridian!

Ok, maybe that’s a bit of a cheat but c’mon!  The Grand Floridian is one of the most gorgeous resorts on property.  It’s on the Monorail line, has some great food options AND it has some terrific theming!  In the specific building that the villas are in there is incredible references to Mary Poppins from the Penguin Fountain when you enter to the finishing touches on the elevator.

5 There is “relaxing space”

I love the fact that there is a couch with coffee tables and another round table in these rooms.  We spend time in the room when I’m working and I need to upload content, download pics etc – so it makes a big difference to us that there’s a place for me to work and a place for my travel party to sit!  No sitting on the bed, there is an actual comfy couch!  There is also a balcony – this makes for a great place to unwind after a day in the parks!
