    My husband and I just got back yesterday from our 6 night stay at this gorgeous resort and I can honestly say this was one of the nicest places I have traveled to... many times when I have visited Disney and would see the Grand Floridian in passing I would say to myself someday I will stay there. And my dream came true this visit! We stayed in a lagoon facing room and though I couldn’t see the castle I did have a lovely view of the water and could watch the monorail on its journeys. My room was spacious and the beds so comfortable. Mousekeeping did a fantastic job keeping us stocked with toiletries and fresh towels. I enjoyed sitting on my balcony with a cup of coffee in the morning. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. We enjoyed the pool area and there was plenty of seating and towels even in the afternoon. The lobby is so nicely decorated and of course that grand staircase is amazing! Music throughout the grounds.. the piano playing and band are a joy to watch. We enjoyed having breakfast and snacks in Gasparilla cafe and we were able to view the fireworks from the marina area.. perfect!!! And the best part was being able to see the castle all the time!!! Of course having the monorail right by the hotel is a treat and you do get spoiled not having to take the bus as often. It’s so convenient and makes you feel special when they stop at the Grand Floridian spot and you are exiting for your temporary “home”! The staff was always helpful and friendly too. I truly enjoyed my time here at this beautiful resort. Of course we enjoyed the parks too and some great dining but I will say I was also happy in the afternoon to return to our resort and enjoy the pool and grounds. There is some great shopping too in the numerous shops on premises and we did have a lovely meal at Citricos restaurant out first evening. Thank you Grand Floridian for a fabulous stay!!!!

    Lives up to the hype!

    We have stayed at the many times at the Contemporary, Polynesian, Beach Club, Boardwalk Inn, and even one of the moderate resorts. Each resort has pros and cons and we love some much better than others. I’ve always wondered if the Grand Floridian was worth the extra expense and now I know that it’s worth that and then some. We loved everything about it. The location is amazing—we even walked to the TTC a couple of times and it was a lovely stroll through the Polynesian. The layout of the resort and the outbuildings are very easy to navigate. The buildings have large, quick elevators and the hallways aren’t as long and winding as other resorts. There is a 24 hour quick service restaurant (that serves hot food for all 24 hours! This is huge!), and the staff was incredibly warm. Mousekeeping was the best we’ve had at any of the resorts. If I was forced to find a flaw, I would say that the edges of the wallpaper were peeling in the otherwise immaculate room, and there was not a sharps container in the lobby women’s restroom (I did have security help me locate one in the companion restroom right next to the women’s room, however, and I had a small one in the room). In no way did these two minor flaws detract from how amazing the stay was. It was an amazing stay and we can’t wait to return.

    We stayed here for two nights this past weekend and it was absolutely lovely. The club level service is exceptional. They are very nice to everyone and make you feel at home. We had an emergency and we had to leave early but they helped us get a taxi and check out quickly. The food was very good every day, but it may not fill someone who is used to eating more food at meals. Our rooms were cleaned daily and turned down every night. Overall the service at the sugar loaf club level is great!

    Beautiful place!

    Loved every aspect of our two day stay. Exceeded our expectations. We had a lovely room on the fifth floor outer building over looking the pool. The high ceilings in our room were really cool and the decor in the room was very pretty and not over the top as still was very comfortable and honey.the beds and pillows were very comfortable! Temperature in the room was 68 but could use a fan for noise at night. No ceiling fan. I could not figure out how to change the temp in the room. Room was very large and spacious. I appreciated the Keurig coffee maker and coffee for the morning and mini fridge in our room. The decor and ambiance of this resort is stunning. Very clean and fresh feel to it. Smells amazing too even in the public bathroom s. Luckily my daughter got a great cast discount to stay here otherwise it's very pricey per night but I'm so glad we were able to stay here and experience the beauty and comfort and convenience of a Disney luxury resort!

    Perfect Spot!

    Our second trip to Disney with our 4 year old. Last year I looked across the water and couldn’t wait to stay at Grand Floridian this year! Massive property with gorgeous grounds feels like it’s own little world. All staff we encountered were so welcoming and nice. I wish I could remember the name but the young man who helped me get bags out of car he was so helpful and welcoming. Perfect Spot right on monorail! So easy to get to the parks. Only reason I gave 4??instead of 5 is I didn’t go a day out of our 6 nights without killing at least 1 bug of some kind. Nothing major just gnats or ant type bugs that maybe were even carried in from outside. Just seemed odd to be every single day. With that said I’m already planning next years stay at Grand Floridian!
