Gorgeous Resort & Wonderful Staff
Reviewed 3 days ago

We’ve stayed at multiple Disney properties, but the Grand Floridian is one of the best! The rooms are spacious and well appointed, the food options are all fantastic and the staff is wonderful. Our mouse keeper, Silvia, was absolutely delightful! The grounds are gorgeous and my kids enjoyed the pools and splash area. One afternoon I was walking around the property and Cinderella came out on a balcony and was waving hello to the people walking by below! It was such a fun surprise! The monorail makes it very convenient to get to Magic Kingdom and the boats are a fast way back. What a wonderful trip!!

Excellence at its best

For a special occasion stay at the Grand Floridian. It's convenient to attractions and its on the monorail. If you want to be treated like royalty stay here. Also, your stay here will be the most relaxing vacation that you have had. Too many amenities too mention.

Disney's Flagship Resort

I always love returning to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa - there is something super exciting about simply walking into the lobby. We stayed in room 4301 in the main building (all club level in main bldg.) facing the Magic Kingdom. Views were spectacular, especially at night with the fireworks. Mousekeeping at the GF cannot be equaled at any other Disney Resort - it is impeccable from the daily routine cleaning to the extra "treats" left in the room to the nightly turn down service. The Mousekeepers are friendly and personable and try to meet any reasonable request. Bathroom amenities and coffee service is refreshed twice a day as are towels. Concierge, Bell Services and Valet are also excellent and go above and beyond what you would expect from other Disney properties. Rooms are large enough to accommodate 4-5 people as they allow electric scooters to park and charge outside the door. There is an ample full balcony on most of the GF Main Bldg rooms. The walk to the Monorail is only a few minutes. Overall, I would not hesitate to give this property 5 stars (although you do pay for each and every one of those stars - our 4 night stay was well over $4000 with 3 days theme park admission).
I could only "complain" about three things: 1) the bathroom needs updating (I believe all rooms should at least have grab bars by the toilet and in the bathtub if not walk-in showers); 2) the offerings at the Royal Palm Club Lounge were pretty skimpy and considering the extra $100+/night, I would expect better; and 3) watch your billing if you have any "special needs." My husband is disabled and displays a disabled placard on his car. Under these circumstances, valet parking is free - even though I always verify this with the valet, I have had to call Guest Services to have charges taken off my bill at least once per visit (GS is always very pleasant and accommodating, but the charges should be correct in the first place - it makes me feel like they're trying to get away with the incorrect billing unless challenged).
I would return to the GF and would certainly recommend it for adults or families with older children as the Disney theme is not as prevelent at the GF as it is at some of the other properties such as the Contemporary or many of the moderate and value resorts.

Another Great Disney Stay
Reviewed 4 days ago

Before arriving this was the only hotel on the monorail loop we hadn't stayed at. I honestly was worried I wouldn't love it. I know it's a deluxe monorail resort, however to me it just didn't have the exciting theme like the Polynesian, or the close proximity like the Contemporary, or even the laid back amazing vibe and spaciousness of The Cabins at Fort Wilderness. It was sort of a last minute booking and the deal was really good for a monorail loop hotel which was really important to me this trip because we were there New Years week so I knew the crowds would be big.
All that said, we all LOVED it! actually better than any of the aforementioned hotels. Even The Poly which was always my favorite and we got the treat of staying club level at. Our room was a pool view first floor room in Pine Key and we couldn't have been happier. From the moment we arrived you could tell why Disney considers this their premier hotel. They had the friendliest staff I have ever encountered in our four trips to Disney and we just loved everything about it! The one and only drawback I can think of is we had a room that was adjoining although we didn't use it that way. During one night of our stay a family showed up at the room in the middle of the night (after midnight sometime) They had little kids who were very excited and running around and yelling. I know it's hard to keep young children quiet in a hotel however due to the adjoining room door it was really quite loud in our room, it actually woke me up out of a deep sleep.
