Since its opening fourteen months ago, the suburban Chicago Doorway to Dreams sales center has featured full-size model rooms for Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas. Soon visitors will be able to experience the newest Disney Vacation Club resort.
Disney is currently in the process of reconfiguring the model rooms at Doorway to Dreams to mirror the newly-announced Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort. The One Bedroom model has already been shuttered and the conversion is under way.
During this transition period, the Studio villa model remains open. Guests can tour the Studio model and view the Animal Kingdom Villas setup while the One Bedroom undergoes chages.
After work on the One Bedroom villa model has been completed, the Studio villa will close and be converted to the Bay Lake Tower setup.
Work has already begun and Disney hopes to have both units converted to the Bay Lake Tower configuration prior to the Thansgiving holiday.
