Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Marcine, my wife of 55 years, my mother in law Lorraine age 96, my daughter Michelle and her husband Sean, and our grand daughter Holly age 5. We spent 5 of the most wonderful days in Disney World at the Grand Floridian. I previously had spent our 25th and 30th wedding anniversaries at Disney World and were surprised to see we had been upgraded to concierge service. What a great surprise. The staff at the hotel were all very supportive. Everyone in Disney World treated us as honored guests. We enjoyed our time in the parks and at the facilities at the hotel. The monorail was the easiest way to get around the park for all age groups. I am retired military and I really appreciate the added benefits that afforded us. I would recommend anyone who enjoys smiles spend some time with their family at the Grand Floridian and Disney World.

Beautiful, clean hotel. Staff are very welcoming. Lots of food options, one including a 24 hour restaurant. Ferry, monorail and bus to the parks. Quick walkover to the Polynesian as well. Gym is small but gets the job done and there is a spa on site as well. Loved it and will stay again.

We have stayed here a number of year ago and this time was even more special. You are surrounded by staff who want to help always ask for something you do not see but want or need. My 96 year old Mother was with us and it was wonderful for her as well. Disney upgraded our rooms there were 6 to club level some know it as Concierge level and we were so surprised. We were in our own building just a short walk from the main hotel in Sugar Loaf. Wow food and drinks were yummy 4 times a day it changes and something fresh all the time and for the kids too. We had our 5 year old Granddaughter with us and there were chairs and tables her size and food choices she loved and a TV showing films for them all the time. I can't say enough about the friendly staff ready to help us at anytime. The Grand Floridian is my favorite place to be with easy access to the monorail and in the park so with small ones you can come back for a rest and then go again. I took a day just to enjoy the pool, and spa and the great kids pool as well. If you are headed to Disney World check it out and if your an active duty or retired Military please don't forget to check on what is possible with military discounts. Our children want to return next year so the planning has begun.

This was our 2nd weekend stay (2 nights is about all I can afford of this level!). Staff were fantastic, polite. Alicia at check in/front desk went above and beyond to make our stay 5 star. Rooms were very clean both stays, beds and pillows super comfortable, refrigerator in room is fairly large for a hotel mini-fridge, WiFi access was good at various locations around the hotel. Free events: princess parade, orchestra, pianist, & more. There are a variety of restaurant price levels, food is generally very good, even the counter service ones. Parking is free and allows you to park at the park free as well (Saves $20). If you like to feel pampered and surround yourself with Southern Charm and luxury, this is the best Disney hotel for it. The downside is if you spend the majority of the day & night at parks, you don't get to appreciate all the Grand Floridian has to offer and it's a steep price to pay to sleep and shower there. The benefit of the resorts that have monorail and boat transportation to Walt Disney World is the ease of getting in and out quickly (compared to taking the boat/monorail and walking to catch a tram to the parking lot, dealing with traffic jams). This is a big reason I'd choose to stay at an onsite resort. Even on a sold out weekend, it wasn't excessively noisy and the children staying here were generally well behaved compared to the wild ones I've experienced at the value hotels onsite. It's a lovely experience overall.

Stayed during Hurricane Irma in September 2017. Staff did a great job keeping everyone safe and secure.

Because we were celebrating our 8yr engagement (done at GF) 6yr marriage (July) and daugeters 2nd bday. They upgraded up to the club level (concierge). From the moment we arrived the place was emaculate, prestine, and well kept. every single employee went out of their way to greet us and say "Hello Princess" to my 2 y.o. daughter from the front desk manager to the guy cleaning the toilets. It made us feel very welcomed and special. The room was incredible his and her sinks and a wrap around balcony. The only issue I had was the mattreszs was a little uneven and gave me back pain in the morning. BUT, besides that this has been the best Disney hotel stay I've had, and i've been visiting Disney for a good 15 years of my life.

Absolutely gorgeous hotel, friendly staff that is very accommodating and just a short monorail ride away from Magic Kingdom

The rooms was great. The view was breath taking and very clean. The only bad thing was the transportation, monerail not running and no buses running.

As always Disney goes beyond with making your stay the best possible. Beautiful view of the castle from our balcony, watched the fireworks from our room each night. Staff is amazing, rooms very clean. Perfect location

We visited around the 4th of July and had the best view of the fireworks show without the crowd at Magic Kingdom... We ate at 1900 Park Fare and it was great!

The hotel is beautiful and rooms comfy. However, club level has gone downhill. Cheap cheddar cheese cubes now rather than Brie or Gouda etc. hot appetizers were barely warm. Flies on food. No turn down service one night. I would stay at the resort again but not club level. Room was not ready at 3pm check in

Staff really downgraded since our last visit. Disney had mostly kids working there. They must be aiming to cut costs and are hiring people either right out of college or high school. Most of them we encountered had a very poor attitude.

The Grand Floridian hotel is fabulous. The architecture of the outside buildings is stunning, the comfort level and the amenities and the decorations in not only the lobby but in the individual bedrooms cannot be surpassed.

We have stayed at this hotel multiple times. This time we decided to book a Theme Park view room. While not normally worth the splurge it was this time as we were upgraded to a larger room. Great staff. Location is ideal. Free parking and easy monorail access.

Stayed Friday through Sunday and it was wonderful. It was worth the price paid for all. The convenience's we had. So happy we could check into our flight right at the resort. Definitely will stay there again.

Love the place.. been there multiple times... only there for a day and the bands for park access didn't work... they made it right for us quickly!...

The Grand always meets our expectations. We have been vacationing here for years. The updated rooms were a nice change!

The hotel, the grounds, service, and location are perfect. What an awesome experience. You can't ask for more. It is all there.. The monorail access is by far the biggest asset. A 2 minute ride to Magic Kingdom. Great for traveling with young children. The pools and waterslides really provide a refreshing experience.. You have to try this place.. AAAAA+++++

Magnificent disney resort! Immaculate, relaxing, wonderful pools. Access to monorail was iffy, but that is on Disney. Room was quiet and view gorgeous.

nice stay. will be back and will recommend. beautiful room. friendly staff. great restaurants. the grand is a favorite of ours.
