Minor updates to floor coverings, wall coverings and furnishings are typical in this "soft goods" refurbishment which comes as the DVC resort approaches its 8th anniversary in October. 

Construction permits have already been filed for work at the Grand Floridan. No specific timelines have yet been revealed. The new resort studios are scheduled to open in summer 2022.
