Grand Californian Renovated Room Photos

The 8-year old Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is in the late stages of a soft goods refurbishment of all guest rooms.  Let's take a look at the major changes to the Disney Vacation Club villa interiors.

New hallway carpet has a bit more character

The reminder of the room design has remained largely unchanged.  Walls were repainted but with similar colors.  Woodwork throughout the villa has been refinished as necessary.  The in-room artwork is all the same as before the refurbishment.  

The latest timeline from Disney suggests that the guest room refurbishment will not be complete until the fall of 2017.  The Disney Parks Blog recently posted a feature on the Hotel's newly renovated pool area.  Additional guest room photos can be found in our Grand Californian Maps & Photos gallery.  

Our thanks to Chris for generously helping with the photos!

It all looks nice. I hope that a bed scarf will still be added to the master bed. It needs some color IMO.

Looking forward to enjoying a newly remodeled Villa soon, and the pool area as well.
I just wish it wasn't so hard to get one at 7 months.
I might have to step up to a one-bedroom, as they seem a little bit easier to get than the studios.

I read somewhere recently that the bed scarves are probably history because people were stealing them. The bed looks so plain and white, but I suppose I can understand the need to do away with the bed scarves if the theft really was that bad...sad.

I can confirm that the bes scarves are gone. The new samsung tvs are huge and dvd players are gone. You can still get one by calling housekeeping and they will send someone from maintenance with one to set it up for you.
Also there used to be a small shelf on the mantle of the murphy bed under the tv in the living room. Since the tv is so large they had to remove that little shelf that housed the dvd player if i remember. There is still the long mantle for the murphy bed to still put items on.

Last note is they have bolted the island to the floor. I remember before the updating it would be moveable.
