My husband and I are Disney Annual Passholders and have stayed at all level of Disney affiliated accommodations from Pop Century to the Four Seasons. We view location as the number one must followed by a great pool and clean rooms…Grand Floridian had it all. I was terrified after reading some very negative reviews but our visit was wonderful, room #8433 in an outer building lagoon view was perfect. Great location, incredible view, extremely comfortable bedding/pillows…with only a 2 night stay I had 0 expectation of any cleaning but we returned in the evening to find clean towels and a tidy room. I very much enjoyed the running path to Polynesian and the walk back after late night event at the Magic Kingdom was a beautiful end to our day. Although we did not dine at the resort this trip a former dinner at Narcoossee’s sparked our interest at staying here…again top notch. Thank you Grand Floridian for being a bright memory in an anniversary trip. Read less

Staying at the Grand Floridian has been a dream for many years. After staying at some of the other Disney Deluxe resorts on property, I thought I had an idea of what to expect at the Grand. I was extremely disappointed. The room was very worn out -- chipped wood furniture, a large hole in the sofa, worn carpet, etc. The overall feel of the building we were in was dark and drab. The lobby of our building felt stale and very out of date. The walls of our room were also very thin and we could easily hear the people next to us. The main lobby of the main building is very beautiful, but could definitely use an update as well. My biggest complaint, however, is access to food. There is no quick service restaurant open after 5:00 p.m, and the sundries store only has chips, cheese, and candy. If you do not have a reservation, the waits for the restaurants are around an hour. They have room service availability most of the day, but they will not deliver if there is rain in the forecast -- so for most of the summer. There was one day when my family and I had NO on property options for dinner except chips and candy. For $650 per night, it was a huge disappointment. If you're looking for luxury on Disney property, the Beach Club far outshines the Grand Floridian. Read less

We just returned from a 4 night stay at the GF. The hotel,grounds and pool were beautiful. We were located in the Sago Cay building with a view of MK castle and we could watch the fireworks at night from our balcony. We loved the cafe for breakfast and brunch ( a little slow service but friendly and worth the wait). The QS restaurant had yummy choices for lunch,dinner,late snacks and coffee. You cannot beat the views and the convenience. When we first checked in we had trouble with getting keys to the room that worked,some sort of glitch so we ended up waiting over half an hour with no result. The room we were given unfortunately had a musky smell ( otherwise clean) and it’s apparent that it is due to old carpeting that is crying for refurbishment. That same night we changed rooms to a different floor in the same building which was wonderful (room had been remodeled). Being that it caused us to move luggage and our son to a new room past 10 pm ,the girl at the front desk ( Peyton) went above and beyond to apologize and to personally inspect the new room prior to entering. She was friendly and personable,and she offered us a Disney credit for all the inconvenience. This was greatly appreciated and will not be forgotten. We will stay here again. I have to say the quietest hotel stay ever, and the most comfortable beds, made it very hard to get up in the mornings:) Read less

I've stayed here over Fourth of July, and let me tell you, this is one of Disney's Best Resorts Overall. The CMs here were super polite, and the grounds are beautiful. Dining options here are awesome, but think hard before doing Enchanted Rose. I was in a fifth floor room and loved the view of the monorail speeding along. Room Service here was good, but if you're staying <4 nights, you'll need to call them and ask if you want trash or towel service (they're not doing turn down service at this time). While it is super expensive, the once in a lifetime chance to stay at one of Disney's Best Resorts is really worth it! Did it once, and would I do it again if given a chance to do it? YES! PS - thanks to the Cast Members for resolving an issue regarding my MagicBand! Read less

We took our daughter for her 21st bday. The room was clean and nice. The resort staff was very helpful and friendly. The grounds were immaculate. The pool was really nice. We only stayed for three days and two nights. I wish we'd stayed longer.
