Senses Spa at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort: A Cheapskate Princess Extravagance!

Senses Spa wet room

I think that old saying about needing “a vacation from your vacation” probably originated from a trip to a theme park at peak capacity. Sometimes, a Disney Princess just wants to get away from it all and spend some quality time being pampered. What better place to spend a few hours of  princess-pampering time than the newly “re-imagined” Senses Spa at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. If you’ve looked into accommodation pricing there lately, you know this place is like on the top-tier of Disney Resort room pricing. So can you afford a trip to the Senses Spa?

Senses is a full-service spa and health club in a Victorian-themed setting, complimentary to the Grand Floridian Resort, offering massages, body treatments and more. This is both a mind and body retreat, reminiscent of Florida garden at the turn of the 20th century.

You enter the spa through a Victorian-style entryway, featuring a lavish mural of old Florida. Prepare yourself to relax and be pampered with rejuvenating elixirs, calming lighting and comforting music

Utilizing therapeutic and revitalizing techniques, Senses – A Disney Spa boasts a soothing confection of unique therapies—facials, massages, body wraps and aromatherapy—designed to elevate the mind and have you looking and feeling your best.

Spa amenities are complimentary for those receiving spa treatments. To keep fit while on vacation, free weights and machines for both strength training and cardio are available. And you can unwind in the steam room or whirlpool spa.
