Posted in Villas at Grand Floridian
Wondering how the room sizes of the Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa compare to other Disney Vacation Club properties? Check out our handy chart detailing the square footage of every resort.
Disney Vacation Club villa sizes (square footage) by resort and room class:
|Deluxe Studio |||One Bedroom |||Two Bedroom |||Grand Villa|
|Animal Kingdom Villas*||316-366||629-807||1152||2201-2349|
|Bay Lake Tower||339||803||1152||2044|
|Beach Club Villas||365||726||1083||---|
|Hilton Head Island||455||865||1245||2363|
|Old Key West||390||942||1395||2375|
* Villa sizes at Animal Kingdom vary due to unique layouts at Kidani Village vs. Jambo House, and the presence of smaller Value-class rooms.
Disney Vacation Club's three oldest properties--Disney's Old Key West Resort, Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort and Disney's Vero Beach Resort--are still home to the largest villa rooms in most sizes. However, the Grand Floridian rooms compare quite favorably to other, more recent developments.
At 374 sq ft, a Grand Floridian Deluxe Studio is 10% larger than its counterpart at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort.
The 844 sq ft One Bedroom Villa is 18% larger than the likes of Disney's BoardWalk Villas and Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa.
The massive 2800 sq ft Grand Villa--featuring its own media room--is 30% larger than the likes of Vero Beach, BoardWalk and Saratoga Springs, and nearly 40% larger than Bay Lake Tower.
I know villa size is important to a lot of members, but for me its not a big deal (pun intended).
Usually, there is just Denise and me traveling together and we don't need a lot of space to be happy. Maybe its all those cruises we've taken -- in cabins less than 200 sqft -- that made us realize that we can make due with less space.
BLT may have a smallest studio, but it also has the best designed kitchenette area of any resort. There is a lot more kitchenette storage space at BLT then at OKW.
If you like comparisons, here's the room sizes for some of Disney's Deluxe hotels per Touring Plans people's book, The Unofficial Guide to WDW except for Aulani (AH) which I got from the Aulani website. The official website for the Grand California did not provide room size. I don't have the figures for suites which probably would not be a fair comparison to a 1 and 2 BR since DVC villas have kitchens and not all suites have the same facilities.
Regular WDW resort rooms
Value resort rooms - 260 square feet
Moderate resort rooms - 314 sq. ft.

AKL and WL - 344
