Disney has confirmed that the Grand Floridian Resort lobby will be undergoing a refurbishment in the coming year.

Details of the project are so far vague, and there is no concept art yet available.

In a post on the official Disney parks Blog, writer Brie Decore said, "2023 will also be a momentous year for Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa as it celebrates its 30th anniversary on July 1! The resort has been receiving some grand touches that weave familiar storybook charm into the Victorian elegance of this flagship resort. Guest rooms are currently being updated as we speak with more to come as the beloved Grand Floridian ushers in its third decade of magic. The ongoing renovation will also include an upcoming refurbishment of the lobby, which will maintain the classic theming you know and love with some fresh new enhancements."

Disney has been updating many of its hotel lobby areas recently, with Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Saratoga Springs, and Disney's Yacht & Beach Club already complete. Work is about to begin on the lobby at Disney's BoardWalk Inn.

Do we have any idea when the lobby will get its refurb? I imagine after Easter at this point?

Assuming this photo was taken today, it looks like Basin at Disney Springs is still closed.

It did reopen at the Grand. IDK the status of the DS store

Basin White reopened today? Can anyone confirm the status of the Disney Springs store?

DisoneJan 20, 2024

It reopened today. Same store. No change in layout.

You're reading too much into that sign, it is staying. Accurate observation. This.

DisoneJan 09, 2024

Refurb. It's not leaving

Hoping Basin stays—I’ve always loved that store
