The Grand Floridian Resort is perhaps the most sophisticated of the Disney World Resorts. It is classified as a Deluxe Resort and the price reflects this – you’ll pay upwards of $500 per night. But it’s worth every penny!
Here are some highlights of the resort’s best features:
- Lovely Victorian inspired theming
- Covers 40 acres around the Seven Seas Lagoon
- On-site white sand beach and marina
- Many rooms have balconies
- Outstanding service because of the low guest-to-staff ratio
- Several full-service restaurants to choose from
- Spacious rooms are more than 400 sq. ft.
- Senses, the newly remodeled luxury spa
- Monorail, boat, and bus transportation to the parks offered
- Alice in Wonderland themed kids pool
- Spectacular pool area, complete with a 181-foot-long waterslide.
- Close proximity to golf courses
- Wedding pavilion
There’s some drawbacks to this resort as well, although not very many! Most of these are probably not deal-breakers:
- Most expensive of the Walt Disney World resorts
- Weddings can cause a lot of crowds
- Only one restaurant suitable for kids
- Shares bus transportation to Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, Downtown Disney, and Waterparks with other monorail-access resorts. Lines can get long.
