Disney to Build Luxury “Health Focused” Suites at the Contemporary Resort.
If you’ve ever wanted to combine the luxury of a spa retreat with your Disney World vacation, look no further: Disney is converting the entire 14th Floor of the Contemporary Resort into a spa retreat, complete with a private yoga studio, concierge service, and special health-conscious menus. In addition, guests can book one of 23 rooms on that floor, which will be furnished with exercise equipment, low-allergen pillows and mattresses, massage tables, and bamboo floors.
The refurbishment at the Contemporary is part of a pilot project, so if this is a success, expect more changes at your favorite deluxe resorts. Guests should be able to experience these rooms by November of this year. In addition to the Contemporary, Disney is refurbishing dozens of rooms at the moderate resorts into “princess” themed rooms in order to keep guests from moving from the moderates to the Animation Suites when they open.
Lots of big resort changes coming in the next year! We’ll keep you posted.
