We loved our stay at the Grand Floridian! We have stayed at many of the deluxe resorts, including the Contemporary, Yacht Club, Beach Club, and Boardwalk. This resort is one of our favorites, for its beauty, architecture, and location. We had great service from Peyton at check in. Our room was in the Boca Chica building with a nice pool view.

We enjoyed the tea service at the afternoon tea, and an amazing dinner at Narcoossee’s. We loved the piano and orchestra in the lobby, as well. The pool water temperature was a bit chilly for us, but still lovely. It’s a classy place! Read less

We so enjoyed seeing this Victorian grand dame dressed for Xmas last year; we had to accentuate our holiday spirit with several visits again this season. We may be starting a tradition. After a late brunch at the Grand Floridian Cafe; a stroll around the grounds proceeded an afternoon/early evening of enjoying piano and jazz ensemble music. (All the musicians are exemplary; but the stylings of the substitute pianist on Fri.12-6 was quite engaging.) All the music was a wonderful accompaniment to viewing the decorations, architecture and people. (It was fun watching the children dancing in front of the band during several sets). Of course, the tree was once again magnificent to behold; and the gingerbread house continues to amaze. One of the afternoons brought the unexpected pleasure of watching a wedding carriage, with six white horses, line up and wait for its time to join the ceremony. Disney Springs, Wilderness Lodge, Port of Orleans, etc. all can raise the Xmas spirit; but the holiday mother lode is a visit (or several) to the Grand Floridian. Read less

I have always wanted to stay at this beautiful resort. My family and I usually stay club level at Disney's Boardwalk Inn. This trip was with my Forever Friend for my 50th birthday celebration. We split the time equally between Disney's Boardwalk Inn, so that we would be near Epcot and Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Grand Floridian. We chose to use the Minnie Van Service, a splurge for my birthday, but extremely easy and convenient, from MCO directly to Disney's Grand Floridian. From the moment of arrival, the cast members were friendly and extremely attentive. We stayed on the second floor in Conch Key in a corner room (Room 7212, if I remember correctly). It was lovely, clean, and QUIET. We had a beautiful view of the gardens and a glimpse of Seven Seas Lagoon. We were a very short walk from the ferry dock, which made it extremely convenient to catch the boat to Magic Kingdom. It was a short walk to Gasparilla Island Grill, GF's counter service restaurant. It was a little longer walk to the Main Building entrance and the monorail. But, the entire resort is so breathtaking that we didn't consider it an inconvenience since we enjoyed looking around, shopping, etc. We enjoyed 1900 Park Fare for the Supercalifragilistic Breakfast. This was our favorite character meal of this trip. We also had a wonderful breakfast at Grand Floridian Cafe and a lovely afternoon tea at The Garden View Tea Room. I can't wait to stay here, again! Our 30th wedding anniversary, 2021! Yes!!! :D Read less

Booked the Grand Floridian based on friends recommendations that it was the nicest hotel in Disney World to go on a trip as a couple during the Christmas season. I was very underwhelmed at the hotel interior and decor. As someone who has been to Disney world many times growing up and been to other Disney resorts like the Polynesian, Wilderness Lodge, Contemporary, I can honestly say that I see no addition value added for the price by staying at the Grand Floridian. Our room was not given to us as promised with a king size bed, so we squished into a queen every night. Also, on our day of arrival our room wasn’t ready and the resort said they’d call us when it was. I received two phone calls both after checkin time saying the room was not ready, but I never got a call when it actually was. This interfered with the way we planned our booked rides on the Disney app and dinner, so we didn’t end up having time to go back to the room and shower and get ready for a nice dinner. Also, one of the days our room wasn’t cleaned. The hotel offered to switch our room for us at 2 pm on the third day which is quite inconvenient since it’s Disney world and we were in the middle of a park at that point with a full day booked. Overall, I’m unimpressed by the hotel and wouldn’t stay there again. The restaurant Victoria and Albert was also a PAIN to cancel. The website said we had a 3 day window to cancel and then I was told by phone I only had 24 hours. It took a half hour on the phone that ended in me hanging up plus an email to get the reservation cancelled with no charge within the 3 day window they advertised. Best part was the monorail being accessible from the upstairs. Read less

Only complaint is that it is the last monorail spot before magic kingdom and can get quite backed up at park open. Walkway that is under construction is long overdue as a release valve when monorail gets too busy. Read less
