If you’re a fan of the Niki Bryan, you may want to book sooner than later. A job posting at Disney Casting for a Director of Spa Services in Lake Buena Vista has rumors flying that perhaps Disney will be taking over it’s Resort Spas in the future rather than outsourcing them to a 3rd party. In Spring 2011 a Niki Bryan manager had told me that they would not be returning to the Grand Floridian Spa when it re-opened. Disney recently opened it’s first fully immersive Spa at Aulani in Hawaii. It will be interesting to see what Disney has in store for the future of it’s Resort Spa program at Walt Disney World as well.
