Review of Disney World’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

Grand Floridian ReviewThe 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.
