What’s New at Disney World’s Monorail Resorts: New Walkway is Open, Holiday Treats, and MORE!

Disney World’s resorts have been prepped and are ready for the holidays!

Grand Floridian Lobby

We hopped on Disney World’s monorail (and even took a walk) to check out what’s new at the Contemporary Resort, the Polynesian Village Resort, and the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa!

What’s New at Disney’s Contemporary Resort

Contemporary Resort Merchandise Updates

We found some new hand sanitizers at both Buena Vista Gifts and Fantasia Market for $9.99 each. These designs feature Minnie Mouse, It’s a Small World, and the Little Mermaid!

There’s even a design that looks pretty similar to a Mickey Balloon!

This bright teal color is really eye-catching!

These are some fun, new designs if you need to spruce up your boring hand sanitizer bottle!

Fantasia Market was also offering some cool pins! This pin featuring Dante from Coco was spotted on display.

They’re also offering the Contemporary’s 2020 Limited Edition Monorail Resort Pin!

The pin opens up to a scene with some characters from Cinderella with the Contemporary’s iconic gingerbread castle in the background! While the castle may not be out this year, we can reminisce with this pin.

This Cinderella Pin comes in its own charming packaging! It says “Birds help me get dressed in the morning.”

We wish birds helped us get dressed in the morning, too! This pin is $15.99.

Grand Floridian Resort Food Updates

It’s not news that Disney has been giving us plenty of options for holiday treats, and that includes the resorts! Gasparilla Island Grill is serving up some really cute and tasty snacks that are perfect for the holidays!

We tried these adorable and yummy Mickey Gingerbread Cookies!

Not only does this cookie look good, but it tastes good, too! And of course, how could we say no to anything Mickey-shaped?

We also spotted some hours posted outside one of the resort’s shopping locations, Curiouser Clothiers.

Grand Floridian Resort Construction Updates

The new walkway connecting the Grand Floridian to the Magic Kingdom is finally open!

Grand Floridian Walkway

After months of construction, we’re so excited to finally be able to use this convenient path! This walk is about fifteen to twenty minutes long.

This walkway gives guests an additional option to get to the Magic Kingdom besides the monorail.

Grand Floridian Resort Holiday Updates

The Grand Floridian has gotten its holiday makeover and this gigantic tree in the lobby adds to its charm and beauty!

We just needed to take a minute to appreciate it.

What’s New at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

Polynesian Village Resort Holiday Updates

We may not be able to celebrate a white Christmas at the Polynesian Resort, but a tropical Christmas is just as fun! This resort has gotten its holiday makeover with trees, wreaths, and garland!

Polynesian Christmas decorations

The Christmas tree is filled with tropical touches, like these bright flowers and a PINEAPPLE!

These ornaments really tie in with the theme of the resort.
