Disney will be opening its new Gran Destino Tower at it’s Coronado Springs Resort in Walt Disney World, on July 9th. The new tower contains 545 guest room, a grand two-story lobby, new meeting venues, and a rooftop restaurant and lounge with spectacular views.
Each tower guest room also offers a new interactive television system that provides a more customized and Disney differentiated in-room experience. This new television system will enhance the guest experience with Disney-quality services, content and personalization. For example, guests can view their Disney PhotoPass images on the large screen and stream their entertainment services from their personal devices to the in-room television.
One of the key features of this new interactive television system is that it offers a number of classic Disney and Pixar movies on demand, in addition to traditional TV stations like ABC and ESPN. Steven Fisher, who is the Event Services Director at the resort has said that these new interactive TV’s will include access to Disney+ when it launches later this year.
Currently these new interactive TV’s can only be found in the new rooms at the Gran Destino Tower, but they will be rolling out throughout the Coronado Springs Resort by the end of the year. Disney will then begin rolling out the new interactive TV’s across the resorts at Walt Disney World over the next few years.
Having Disney+ available at the resorts at Walt Disney World will be a huge marketing opportunity to get guests to try the service out while on vacation, which will lead to many subscribing when they get home. It also gives guests extra value and convenient access to content to make the holiday more enjoyable.
