PHOTO TOUR OF THE MASTER BEDROOM AND MASTER BATH IN THE VILLAS AT THE GRAND FLORIDIAN

The master bedroom has two entrances–one from the living room, and one from the divided master bath. See the floor plan below.

The result is that

  • Those sleeping in the living area can use the master bath without entering the master bedroom (unlike in other recent DVC designs, there’s no third bath aimed at those in the living room), and
  • Those in the master bedroom can exit the master space without interrupting sleeping people in the living area.

The master bedroom is large, but other than having tons of storage space, is not otherwise exceptional.

The art above was the only reference to Mary Poppins in our room. I’ve seen photos of other rooms on the web with a few more Mary Poppins references–but even those added posters and such are too subtle to really call these rooms “Mary Poppins-themed.”

Dresser Master Bedroom in One and Two Bedroom Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa from yourfirstvisit.netThe dresser is quite large, with an astonishing 9 drawers.

Sink Master Bath in One and Two Bedroom Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa from yourfirstvisit.netAccessed through sliding doors is the first part of the divided bath, with a sink on one side…

Spa Tub Master Bath in One and Two Bedroom Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa from yourfirstvisit.net…and a charming spa tub on the other. The air jets of the tub are subtle–they aren’t large nozzles on the sides, but rather small holes in the bottom.

I found this odd at first–a tad too bidet-like–but got over my philistinism and ended up quite enjoying it!  But the air jets then fired off and on randomly–with no water in the tub, nor any new buttons pushed–for an hour after my trial.

So maybe the tub found me odd in turn…

Other Sink Master Bath in One and Two Bedroom Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa from yourfirstvisit.netThe other half of the divided bath has another sink…

Tooilet and Shower Master Bath in One and Two Bedroom Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa from yourfirstvisit.net…and a toilet and shower.

Shower Master Bath in One and Two Bedroom Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa from yourfirstvisit.netAt almost 30 square feet, the shower is enormous. You could clean every single moderate Democrat and moderate Republican in the Senate simultaneously in here–and maybe you should.

Common Hall to Master Bath in One and Two Bedroom Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa from yourfirstvisit.netAs noted, there’s a second door to this part of the divided bath that leads to a hall and eventually the rest of the spaces.

The jets firing off in the tub are a sanitation thing. Unlike a jetted tub (whirlpool) where you aren’t supposed to use soaps or bubble bath, you can in one of these. To prevent mold/mildew from forming in the “pipes” it blasts air through them for awhile after you drain it to dry them out.

Thanks Bob! It’s good to know the tub doesn’t hate me!
