PassPorter's Walt Disney World News Bulletin

Grand Floridian Spa to Open December 17

Published 11/16/2012 by PassPorter News
Filed in Walt Disney World
Senses - A Disney Spa, located at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, will reopen after a lengthy closure. The spa will now be owned and operated by Disney, and will feature new decor and new treatment options. The Spa at Saratoga Springs will be closing in mid-January 2013 and will reopen in Summer 2013 as a second Senses - A Disney Spa location. Also in January, all the other spa and fitness facilities at Walt Disney World will be directly owned and operated by Disney. If the "Senses" name seems familiar, the spas on the Disney Dream and Disney Fanasy cruise ships debuted Disney's use of the name.

This news bulletin updates page 215 of PassPorter's Walt Disney World 2012.

'I admit I wasn't all that sure I would really 'needed' the PassHolder Pouch. Even my husband was hesitant to use it, but after the first day on our trip, we couldn't imagine our entire vacation without them! Our Key Cards, receipts, and money were kept save and with us at all time. Even with the rain, it kept everything dry. A must!' -- SandiF from San Jose, CA
