How to Get There
We stayed again at the Grand Floridian and this time thought that the upgrade to the Club Level would be worth it for the additional benefit of the complimentary food and beverage....and it was!
We are annual passholders so we visit WDW at least a few times a year. During this visit there was a great 40% off discount at GF on the Club Level for passholders so when we figured what we would save on dining it actually was well worth the upgrade. As we visit the parks often we don't stay in the parks all day and night; in fact we typically hit the parks for our FastPasses and a few other areas and spend a lot of time at the resort that we are staying at. For this reason again the Club Level makes a lot of sense as we have a lot of opportunity to enjoy the complimentary dining in the Club Level. There is food and beverage out almost the entire day from 7am to about 10pm other than a few short windows of time when the food stations are being changed out. The food is very good; in fact there are times when they have chef attended stations. Made to order crepes for breakfast were excellent.
In the late afternoon and early evening there was beer and wine out and in the evening a cordials station. You can always ask for something and the Club Level cast members are always willing to help. Disney service is always good but the Club Level is even that much better believe it or not.
During this visit we had an issue with our in-room wi-fi and in true Disney fashion they were very gracious in addressing the issue and making it right. In fact, Zachary, one of the managers at the resort, reached out to me and asked to personally meet with me to apologize for the inconvenience.
During this visit we stayed in the main building and during a previous visit we stayed in the Sugar Loaf building. The Sugar Loaf building is all Club Level while just certain floors of the main building are Club Level. For our family we prefer the Sugar Loaf building as its quieter. We were upgraded from Sugar Loaf to main building during this visit and while the main building is more expensive we would have preferred Sugar Loaf. The main building is convenient as you are just an elevator ride from the shops, dining and the monorail. Our room was adjacent to the vast entry way with the beautiful high ceilings and live entertainment in the evenings but that entertainment proved to be quite noisy in our room until about 10pm and while adults will enjoy this setting it wasn't helpful in getting our 3 and 6 years to bed. There are rooms in the main building that are not directly adjacent to the main lobby area and I am sure GF will accommodate requests based on availability. We were only there for 3 nights so we didn't ask to move as we were all unpacked. This was not a big deal, but it was enough of a concern that it could be one for families with little ones so I wanted to point it out.
We’d heard a lot of positive things about this resort and so decided to spend the extra money on it for our first family trip to Disney World. We weren’t disappointed!
Great location (especially for The Magic Kingdom) and super transport links to all other parks. Fantastic service from all staff for the entire duration of our 10 night stay. Great choice of food, lovely room, extraordinary cleanliness, superb place to watch the nightly Happily Ever After firework display.
Wouldn’t hesitate to select this place again for a future visit (even though it does appear to be the most expensive!)
Stayed here 7th-21st June 2019
We had a room upgrade from garden view to lagoon view with views of the magic kingdom room 8113 & 8115 in Boca Chica it was beautiful we could watch the fire works from our room each night along with the nightly pageant.
The rooms were very clean & changed daily.
We were on the Disney dining plan which was very good.
We used the courtyard swimming pool each day with zero entry very clean with pool towels we always got a lounger never a problem.
Boca Chica buildings were very clean I would say cleaner than some NHS hospitals.
We used gasparilla grill most mornings for breakfast plenty of choice & also some lunchtimes, always plenty of fruit available as well.
We are now spoiled will always want to stay here now.
Staff were always very friendly especially to our very young grandchildren 2 & 4 always been called princess they loved it.
We had the MOST amazing stay at the Grand Floridian for our pre and post wedding stay!!! The Grand has always been on my Bucket list of places to stay, so of course while planning our Disney Fairytale Wedding we had to book a stay there! I love this resort because it’s simply elegant, has fabulous dining options and is family friendly and romantic at the same time. Also, with the proximity to our events, it only made sense to stay here... Our Ceremony took place at the Wedding Pavillion, reception at the GF convention ballrooms, and Firework Dessert Party at the GF marina. We had been over at the Polynesian a few days before and had a horrible experience, so when I left my (now) husband the night before the wedding to stay at the GF it was like a breathe of fresh air. During check in at the GF Villas, the staff and managers heard about my troubles over at the Poly and took it upon themselves to try and make my stay better. The gentleman (so sorry I cannot recall his name) and Robin over at the Villas were so very helpful and gracious! I received notification that we were upgraded to a suite for 2 nights over in the main building. We ended up in Big Pine Key 9515 and when I walked in my heart skipped a beat, literally! There were 2 full bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 3 entrances, 2 beautiful balconies, and complimentary robes and slippers. I honestly don’t know what I did to deserve such a beautiful accommodation LOL! Everyone here from the front desk, to bell service, to housekeeping, and even Peggy down in lost and found treated us like Royalty! This room was absolutely amazing... the beds were the most comfortable beds I’ve ever slept in, the room was sparkling clean, and there was ample space for my bridal party and glam squad to get us ready the following morning. My makeup artist raved about what a beautiful room we had! I still tear up a little thinking about our experience at the Grand! It’s now my all time favorite Disney resort. If you ever get the chance to stay here, DO IT!! You will not be disappointed. To everyone at the Grand who helped make our Wedding stay so magical: THANK YOU! We are forever grateful xoxo xoxo <3 Love, The Galry’s
The Grand Floridian is an all-around terrific experience - the ambiance is amazing. We stayed in an outer building garden view room - our room overlooked the pool, and the view was beautiful. Our room was gorgeous and clean, the staff was on top of everything, and you can't beat the quick boat ride to MK and the walk to Poly. The Grand Floridian Café, 1900 Park Faire, and the quick service location were all great places to eat. We were lucky to get a terrific deal on a typically expensive resort and so glad we got to try it!
