Perfect for a family trip to Disney

Everything was outstanding - staff, amenities, convenience. Keep in mind, you are paying for this luxury, but the whole family felt good about it and when we return to Disney, can't imagine staying anywhere else. However, DO NOT purchase airport transportation from Mears as they do not pick up from Disney resorts.

Relaxing stay, 4 star restaurants

Quiet hotel with friendly service, employees are knowledgable and want to help you. Citrico and Narcosee are 4 star restaurants with a great staff, conveniently located on the grounds. Lobby has live music, great character breakfast at 1900 Park Fare. 2 pools, 1 has a water slide our kid loved.

Fantastic

The Grand Floridian is a fantastic place to stay - but you pay a pretty penny for it! I absolutely loved everything about this hotel. The staff was very helpful, the maids cleaned our rooms very well, and the location was fantastic. It was fun (and convenient!) to use the monorail to get to Epcot and Magic Kingdom. The hotel is expensive, but it's a great experience for your Disney trip!

Wonderful place

Fantastic place!! Worth every penny!! Perfect location!! Food was amazing, kids pool with waterfall and slide, second pool huge, planned activities for kids, pool side movies every night, 24 hour grill, watched fireworks from resort. We have always stayed off Disney for our past trips to save money and this trip was the best yet- worth the extra money. Very relaxing-- no car rental-- no car seats-- my husband and I actually were able to relax. We took the Disney Expess to and from the airport- no stress. We will never stay anywhere else again. We ate

Beautiful hotel

It is just difficult to transfer from one monorail to another to get to Ebcot when one of the parties has bad back. This may be for all Disney hotels, The hotel is lovely and the staff was very helpful. This was my second stay at this hotel.

Excellent place to stay at Disney

This is a wonderful hotel, very conveniently located - be prepared to pay for that experience though! Your first stop on the monorail is the Magic Kingdom which is great if you want to get in th park early Great hotel over all

Great stay at the Grand Floridian

We stayed for three nights at the Grand Floridian. The price is high, but the quality certainly makes it worth while. The location is great as the tram goes right from the second floor. The room was beautiful and the grounds are wonderful. Food is exceptional in the restaurant and the 24 hour grill has very good food, snacks and drinks. Would definitely stay again. More adult oriented than other resorts.

Beautiful, Elegant Ambience

What a wonderful, charming, lovely, ornate Victorian splendor! It is tuly breathtaking upon entering this grandeous hotel. The staff is ultra helpful with anything one would want. A person is truly transported to a most luxurious, effulgence, and illustrious elegance. It is a glorious Victorian structure but is up-to-date with modern conveniences as well. We were overjoyed!! Several of the restaurants we tried were simply FABULOUS! Our room (garden room) was lovely, large, and was well kept up daily-we also enjoyed the chocolates left on our pillows at night! We are hoping since this is our 2nd time we will be upgraded to club-as our dear friends were a few years ago. The convenience of the monorail picking us up on the second level to Magic Kindgom was also very appreciated! All in all everyone (if they can) SHOULD EXPERIENCE this incredible hotel resort at least once or better yet twice or three times or more-smile! Have a super day!!
