Senses – A Disney Spa at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort Opening December 17

A soothing escape into a world of pampering and relaxation is just steps away from Disney theme park fun at the newly re-imagined Senses – A Disney Spa at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort.

The fully remodeled spa, now owned and operated by Disney, is set to open December 17.

I recently had a chance to duck in for a sneak peek and our Imagineers did a splendid job of blending Grand Floridian turn-of-the-century elegance with modern touches – plus a dash of Disney whimsy. Here are some of the highlights:

Spa-goers first walk through the new Victorian style entryway and indulge in a relax, renew, or imagine journey that’s determined by your treatment choice.

The centerpiece of the spa’s lobby is an original mural reflecting old Florida landscape and nature. Glass mosaic tiles in the Jacuzzi rooms further enhance the elegance and sophistication of the spa. All the senses are engaged in an ultimate relaxation experience – flavorful and soothing elixirs, color variations in lighting and orchestral music harmonize with the treatment selected.

Some 15 treatment rooms offer full-service pampering services such as watertherapy, sugar exfoliation body treatment, rejuvenating citrus facial, a restorative hand and foot ritual with Chinese Jasmine oils, plus a Magical Manicure or Princess Pedicure for youngsters. Lounges, whirlpools, and treatment rooms all provide rejuvenation through the healing nature of Florida citrus and botanicals.

The new menu of services also includes a signature 80-minute Grand Floridian treatment featuring a special aromatherapy massage.

Guests can book spa appointments at the new Senses – A Disney Spa at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort beginning November 15, by calling 407-WDW-SPAS (407-939-7727) or learn more by visiting www.disneyworld.com/spas.

Incidentally, all of our spas, salons and fitness centers will be owned and operated by Disney beginning January 16. On that same day, the spa at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort will temporarily close for renovation and reopen in the summer as Senses – A Disney Spa at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort. More to come on that soon.

Beautiful! I can’t wait, last time I had a spa treatment at Grand Floridian was back in 2004 for my honeymoon. It’s about time we go back for another!!

Now, how do I get them to decorate my home?? ;)

Hi,

I was trying to find information on post race massages in any of the Spas in Disney. Can you anyone tell me if there is such a thing and where can I book one? We are doing the Goofy challenge and would love one after the half on Saturday. Thank yoU!

Looks lovely! I like the idea of Disney owning their spas. Will this be the case for Mandara at the Grand Californian as well in the future?

Going in March, wanted to book a massage, where can I find the services the spa offers as well as prices?

I am trying to find prices. Coming from overseas, a phone number is not really useful as it costs to much to call and be on hold, or trying to figure out the time difference.

@Andrea You can schedule one at Saratoga Springs or one of the health clubs now to ensure you get a spot.

My wife just made her appt for her Valentine’s Day Gift. She can’t wait to see and experience the new Spa. She was wondering are you going to let us know when they have the service and pricing available online. Thanks and I know she can’t wait to get pampered.
