Finally, Deluxe Resorts such as Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and Disney’s Riviera Resort, are generally priced well over $500 for each night of a family’s stay.

One popular Moderate Resort, Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort, is home to some of Disney Vacation Club’s most unique villas — the Treehouse Villas. And, now, it seems that these stunning Guest-favorite accommodations are getting an upgrade.

Walt Disney World officials have filed construction permits for several of the DVC Villas — 7022, 7023, 7026, and 7031. All four permits are for “General Construction,” which can mean anything from minor updates to a complete overhaul.

The contractor listed on the new work permits is Faden Builders. The company’s website notes:

Upon graduating from the University of Central Florida with a degree in Finance, Todd [Todd Faden, owner] embarked on his multi-faceted construction industry journey while working for a company that specialized in the extremely demanding genre of Theme Park construction.

Faden Builders, Inc. was established in 2000. Todd’s extensive ” hands on” experience and the ability to adapt Faden Builders’ services to meet the construction industry’s ever changing trend are valuable attributes that have allowed him to nurture and grow Faden Builders, Inc. into the exceptional company it is today.

Given the owner’s background in theme park construction, it is unsurprising to see Faden Builders involved in a Disney project. It is worth noting, however, that Disney World has not confirmed any information about the updates to the Disney Vacation Club Treehouse Villas at this time.

Currently, DVC units at the Grand Floridian are getting an upgrade, however.
