At Thursday's Condominium Association Meeting, Disney Vacation Club executives shared their plans for updating villa interiors over the next 2 years.
Today, Disney released new room concept art and floor plans of Disney’s newest Resort, Disney’s Riviera Resort. Reservations are now available for December 15th for cash rooms and Disney Vacation Club members will be able to book using points later this spring. Rates starting at $486.0 per night. The document, filed with the City of Anaheim Planning and Building Department document, is the 'final site plan' and 'tentative parcel map' and a conditional use permit. The plans will be voted on.
New sofabeds are part of Saratoga Springs refurbishment
Three DVC resorts will receive a smaller scaled 'refresh' in 2021. Among them are Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas, Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows. Also referred to as a 'soft goods' refurbishment, the process typically includes updates to wall coverings, floor coverings, linens and some decor.
This modest update occurs about 7 years into the life of a resort and then again at roughly 21 years. The more extensive full refurbishment is typically slated for the 14 year mark. No resorts will receive a full refurb in 2021.
However, the following year both Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge and Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort will receive a full refurbishment. Also in 2022, Disney's Beach Club Villas will be refreshed.
This is a bit of a change from the dates which were announced a year ago. Both the Boulder Ridge and Aulani updates were planned for 2020, but undoubtedly derailed by COVID-19. Meanwhile the Polynesian refresh was moved up a year from its original 2022 target, perhaps due to other work currently occurring throughout the resort.
No concept art was shared for any of the resorts scheduled for udpates in 2021 and 2022.
Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa is currently in the midst of a full refurbishment. That project is expected to be completed in summer 2021. During the 2020 condo meeting, Disney reported that guest satisfaction scores have increased 20% among those staying in refurbished rooms at Saratoga Springs.
