That’s right, the Grand Floridian Spa at the deluxe Disney Resort, Disney’s Grand Floridian, will be reopening its doors so we can all treat ourselves to relaxation on our next Disney vacation. You know you deserve a chance to invigorate the mind and body after the couple of years we’ve all had.

When COVID-19 struck, Senses Spa along with several other experiences closed in March 2020 and did not reopen when phased reopening began in summer 2020. Now, almost a full two years later, spa treatments will once again be offered on Walt Disney World property.

Disney goes on to make the announcement with, “The Grand Floridian Spa has been refreshed with the iconic Victorian-style theming of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort. Once inside the spa, you’ll be transported to a tranquil Floridian garden where you’ll experience serenity with calming lighting and comforting music.

Guests of The Grand Floridian Spa can choose from an array of treatments and massages. Experience The Grand Massage or Massage for Two, which incorporates botanical lotions and other elements to release tension and fatigue and replenish the mind, body and spirit. Or destress with Nature’s Renewal Hydrating Treatment, which combines a full-body exfoliation with a hydrating botanical massage.

A full range of salon services are also available including haircuts, styling and The Grand Manicure and Pedicure Treatments. The Grand Floridian Spa’s nail treatments provide the ultimate pampering experience with exfoliation, mask, massage and choice of nail lacquer.

“Spa Guests are also invited to visit a relaxation lounge before or after their treatments.

Now, we are keeping our fingers crossed more Disney World Resort experiences will make a return. Does this mean Saratoga Springs Resort Senses Spa could return soon in a similar way to this Grand Floridian Spa? Or what could this mean for the hopeful return of Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Magic Kingdom and Disney Springs in the future?

We’re also ready to see Disney Resort Hotel dining favorites like 1900 Park Fare at Disney’s Grand Floridian, Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue return at Disney’s Fort Wilderness, and Spirit of Aloha at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort make a comeback!
