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

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.

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.
