Almost a Five

The location is PERFECT, if you are planning on going to the Magic Kingdom. The grounds are GORGEOUS. The rooms are nice, but a little on the cramped side for a family. The lobby is absolutely beautiful. My only complaint is the value. At $520/ night for the most basic room, I feel there could have been some little extras. We were looking at the Wilderness Lodge and the GF and there was a $220 difference a night!! That is significant. I do believe the GF is nicer than the wilderness, but I am not sure $220/night worth. Overall, though we had a fabulous time and enjoyed our stay.

Make sure you cancel any restaurant reservations at least the day before or you will get charged a $10/person fee. That is a Disney policy.

Awesome even with toddlers

This place in in the middle of the action. Presumably, if you stay here it is because that's where you want to be. Monorail to Disney or Epcot. Buses to the waterparks are reasonable. We initially booked the Polynesian but switched when we found out they have construction going on. You can see it from the GF, but it was nice to not be in the midst of the cranes. And, we walked to the Polynesian for the Luau dinner, so got to see it anyway. What we loved was that GF is not as over-gimmicky with all the Disney themes. They're there, but very elegant. Our primary concern was that the GF was not as kid-friendly as the other resorts. That turned out completely unfounded. Kids are everywhere and perfectly happy. Great pool(s). Outdoor kids movies at night. Character breakfast onsite. Kids even fit in well at Narccoosee's, which was awesome fine dining (and we've eaten at Alinea, Trotter's, French Laundry, etc.). Get a room facing the lagoon, and you can see/hear the water parade at night, the horns from the boat ferries, the fireworks, any music from MK. It's a delightful place, but certainly expensive. We figure that in 5 years our finances won't be affected by the extra $400-600 that this cost over 4 days. Highly recommended. Also, we bad reviews of the Magical Express transportation from the airport, also unfounded. Seamless in both directions, especially with toddlers.

Family vacation

It was great place to stay, room is about average, on our last day it was horrible, the cleaning personal knock on the door every 30 mins starting 8:30 am, between 8:30 am to 11am when we check out, the cleaning personal knock on the door 5 times, plus 2 phone calls to remine us to check out early, as if they are so afraid that I won't leave that room, unbelievable..., doubt if we will book the same hotel next time

Dated and Worn Out

I expected so much from the most expensive property at the Walt Disney World Resort. I was disappointed to find dated décor, faded artwork, heavily scratched furniture, and sparse holiday decorations in my building. At these prices, I expected a premium experience. I wish I had stayed at another hotel. Save your money.

A special stay in Disney

Everything about this hotel is spectacular. The lobby is the most magnificent of any on property. We visited during the holidays, so a towering Christmas tree and larger-than-life gingerbread house were main attractions. The pools are beautiful. There are three separate pools catering to different needs. One is nice and relaxing, one is a kids dream, and another can be fun for both kids and adults! The room was amazing as well. You just can't get any better than a room at the Grand Floridian!

If you're in a rush in the morning, go to the Gasparilla Grill and order the bounty platter for breakfast. A great way to start the day!

Not worth the money...

I have stayed in all levels of hotel, and for the price, this is not a great value. It is beautiful, for sure, and clean. The pools are just ok, not great, and certainly not for what is supposed to be the highest end resort at Disney. The room was comfortable but the carpets stayed moist (!?!). We had several issues during our four day stay. They "upgraded" our room from garden to pool view, then after we had spent the day there, we got locked out of our room. Had to argue for 20 minutes with the front desk staff about which room was ours--they had us in the wrong room in the computer and insisted WE had made the mistake. Finally, we we're let into our room where our belongings were. We had trouble making dining reservations. We tried online, and the website said to call the number. The phone tree wouldn't get us through to a person. Went downstairs to the restaurant, where they sent us to the concierge. The concierge told us we had to go to the restaurant. Basically ended up not being able to go anywhere except one walk in restaurant in the hotel, because nobody would help us. Finally, the monorail broke down while we were there and they didn't have enough alternate transport. You pay a premium for monorail access (that's why you stay here!?!), and there were ridiculous lines for ferries and buses instead. We finally just went to the manager with these problems, and she had us dropped at the park and gave us some credit for dining. While we appreciated that, it doesn't make up for all of the deficiencies at this "Grand" hotel. I would choose a different hotel next time.

Nice Hotel

Since it is a nice Disney resort, it is extremely expensive. Without the Disney name, this hotel would probably be half the price. The rooms were ok and the pool was nothing special. But you can't beat the location!
