Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Stayed at the Grand Floridian resort for 4 day. It way great. Room was imaculant and well maintain. Staff was superb. Ground and pool were wonderful. I give this resort my highest recommendation. I thought it was a bit pricey when I booked the vacation, but after staying there agree it was well worth every cent.
This hotel is very nice! I wouldnâ€™t call it a luxury hotel but it is certainly a step up from most other Disney properties. We had a room with club access. The room was large, clean and comfortable. I was surprised by how busy the lounge was - it was nearly impossible to get a table at breakfast! The only real disappointment was the monorail. We had two kids in strollers and chose this hotel for the monorail - but the monorail was constantly broken. The boat to the magic kingdom is also very nice and close to the room but since the kids had to be taken out of strollers and the strollers had to be taken apart it wasnâ€™t the best fit for our family.
Spent 3 nites with my daughter, niece and 2 year old grand niece. We had connecting rooms on the 4 floor Concierge floor which really made the trip wonderful. Rooms are nice. Overpriced but it is Disney - rooms need some refreshing - grout in bathroom nasty. BUT - one stop on the monorail from Disney - no need to touch the car and lovely treats for both adults and two year olds. If going to Disney the Grand Floridian the only way to go.
We had a great time staying at the Grand Floridian with our one year old son. Being on monorail made getting around incredibly easy. We were there for a conference and my wife and son would go visit the park while I was in class. She could get around with a stroller easily and the security prior to getting on monorail made magic kingdom entry so easy. It is a bit on the pricey side, but for the convenience, it is worth saving up to visit.
We have stayed here twice for business conferences. The grounds and staff are first rate. The proximity to the Magic Kingdom is unparalleled. Sitting in the lobby to enjoy the band and just people watch is a great way to pass the time. Conference facilities are very nice as well. Take time to just stay at the resort and explore during your stay. There are some very peaceful spots to get away from the "busyness of Disney Parks". Try to get a lagoon view if possible. We could see Cinderella's castle from our balcony which was beautiful at night. For us, watching the fireworks at Magic Kingdom from the resort is much less stressful than being with tens of thousands of people in the park.My only complaint is the food. If this is Disney's flagship hotel, then why doesn't the food reflect this? It is mediocre at best. We have been blessed to stay in many fine hotels around the world. When you pay a premium price for a room, you expect that all the amenities are premium as well. We ate in several of the different restaurants on site and were disappointed in all of them. Again, I understand the food in the parks not being as good, but I expect the restaurants on the resorts to be a step above. We are not Disney addicts like so many people are. We come with an open mind and expect the service and food to be reflective of the resort you choose to stay in. Disney has placed itself at the top of hospitality from a marketing perspective. I am not sure why the food quality falls so far below a modest expectation. Again, we were not mad, just disappointed. We understand everyone has a bad night now and then. We stayed 5 nights and this was our take home message. We did have a GREAT experience at Todd English's restaurant Bluezoo in the Swan/Dolphin. This is the level of restaurant and dining experience that I expected at the Grand Floridian. This restaurant did not disappoint. We cancelled our reservation at the GF and went to Bluezoo a second night. (Tip- please note that this restaurant does NOT participate in the magic band program. You need to bring a credit card. This created an awkward moment for us when we did not have our card with us). Again- I still think that the GF is a premium hotel and a great place to stay. I would just choose to eat elsewhere. For the prices that are charged, the dining experience does not equate to "real world" dining.
