The main lobby of Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is still dominated by construction wall and painting equipment.
Refurbishment has moved into the resort's main lobby, with a large section blocked off from view at ground level. However, the expansive multi-story design of the lobby allows guests to look down into the construction zone from multiple floors, including the second story with its monorail platform and retail areas.
During the day, crews are working on painting the upper levels of the lobby. Back in June, work began on the section closest to the main entrance and monorail. Now it has moved toward the center of the lobby.
Scrims help protect upper floors while work is being performed.
At the far end, a series of planters separate the lobby from the Enchanted Rose lounge (above and below.)
No specific timeline has been revealed for completion. However, the prevailing wisdom suggests that Disney plans to have the bulk of the lobby work done before the Christmas season in order to clear the way for the popular gingerbread display.
