It has been speculated for a couple of years that Disney Vacation Club will next be heading to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort following its most recent new construction just across the lagoon at the Contemporary Resort. Some plans have now surfaced on the internet that seem to further backup the rumors (see below). They show a 3 wing building, located roughly on the site of the grassy area and beach between the Grand Floridian and the Wedding Pavilion, opposite to the existing health club and spa. The Villas have their own entrance, and covered walkway to the main Grand Floridian building, but do not appear to have a dedicated pool. Due to the limited size of the land, this would not be an addition anywhere near the size of the recent Bay Lake Tower at the Contemporary, even with the modification to the shoreline that the plans detail. A new parking lot for the health club and Wedding Pavilion are also shown in the plans.
Of course we don't know if these plans are genuine, and even if they are, whether the plans will actually be put into action - until announced by Disney, this all remains speculation. However, it would certainly seem logical for the Grand Floridian to join the majority of the other Deluxe Resorts in adding DVC Villas, and perhaps the final sellout of the Bay Lake Tower will prompt the new construction to break-ground.
