    Best located disney hotel

    Out of all the Disney resorts, it’s definitely the nicest. It would be the equivalent of a 3 star resort anywhere else in the world. Rooms are spacious and newly refurbished, still pretty basic but very comfy and everything you need. Proximity to magic kingdom is what you are really paying for here. Guest services all really helpful (except if you ask them to book a non-Disney restaurant!) We enjoyed out stay but just don’t expect it to be like the four seasons despite the price being similar.

    This resort is absolutely beautiful and so clean! They have the hardest working staff that I have ever seen. They were dusting the wrought iron fencing. The staff is extemely friendly and accommodating! This was literally the best experience I’ve ever had. It smells so good that I had to ask what scent that was lol then I bought candles and other items in the Basin on the 2nd floor. Make sure and wear comfortable shoes, it’s a huge resort.

    Great grounds, average room

    Although the grounds are beautiful I was dissapointed with my room here. We arrived very late on a Saturday night due to our flight being delayed several times. Upon opening our room door I didnt get the wow I was expecting from the reviews and price of this resort. My main complaint is the carpet. Our carpet was very stained and even had a wet spot on the floor which according to the smell on my sock I think it was coffee. I found a spider on my pillow one night. The toliet area was shared by the shower/tub combo and didnt allow much space. I noticed the carpet throughout the villa building had several stains as well. The resort is beautiful overall. I really enjoyed the cabanas at the slide pool, watching my girls at the adorable splash pad, and the conveince of the monorail and getting to Magic Kingdom. I really just wanted more at this price level and reputation. I wouldnt stay again due to the room size, condition, and not feeling comfortable enough in the room which is absolutely what you need after long days at the parks.

    The best resort at Walt Disney World

    My experience at the Grand Floridian was truly unforgettable. It is a magical hotel that transports you to another world. If you are looking for a place to stay in Walt Disney World that offers you luxury, elegance and first-class service, the Grand Floridian is the best option.
