FROG FAMILY REVIEW
Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa*

What we love

  • Beautiful Victorian-style architecture
  • Direct Access to Magic Kingdom® Park by walking path, monorail, or boat taxi
  • Rooms are some of the largest in all of Walt Disney World® Resort; most sleep up to five 
  • The most luxurious standard rooms on property, with hardwoods and marble in the bathrooms, and elegance all round
  • Multiple table-service options, including the AAA Five Diamond-awarded Victoria & Albert's
  • On-site character breakfast and dinner dining at 1900 Park Fare
  • 24-hour dining via room service and the quick-service Gasparilla Grill
  • Live music in the lobby, including an orchestra in the evenings
  • Beach Pool features a gently sloping entry similar to that of a natural beach, a splash area for little ones
  • Quiet pool is the largest on property, and includes a whirpool and kiddie pool
  • A full-service spa and health club in a Victorian-themed setting offering massages and body treatments, plus a full-service salon
  • Few parking lot views; most rooms overlook the beautiful grounds, with some water and Magic Kingdom® Park views
  • Free parking!

Keep in Mind

  • Hotel charges $33 per night (sales tax included) for valet parking
  • Proximity to Magic Kingdom® Park and world-class amenities make Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa the most expensive hotel on property
  • Transportation time to other parks can be longer
  • More traffic from non-hotel guests than any other property
  • Families coming to and from the theme park are as welcomed as those dressed to the nines, which you will see, especially in the evenings
  • On-site convention center brings in some business travelers
  • Shared bus service to Disney's Hollywood Studios® and Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park
  • Concierge-level rooms are in the main building and Sugarloaf; main building rooms are more expensive

Notable Facts

  • Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa was modeled after the Hotel del Coronado in San Diego
  • Many of the resort hotel's buildings are named after islands in the Keys
  • The Beach Boys filmed the video for "Kokomo" at the hotel in 1988, and incidentally were the hotel's first guests
  • Big Bertha, a band organ built in Paris and used in a theme park in Grand Rapids, Mi., plays at 1900 Park Fare

Frog Family Tips

  • Request a standard room in the Big Pine Key building to be closest to the quiet pool; rooms in Conch Key are closest to boat transportation (not all requests are guaranteed)
  • Book reservations for Victoria & Albert's a full 60 days in advance of check-in for the best chance at getting a table, especially if you want a seat at the coveted Chef's Table, which offers only one seating for 10 each evening
  • Take the monorail to Magic Kingdom® Park, but consider the boat ride back as it's the first stop before heading to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort
  • Expand your dining options with a short walk to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort
  • To visit Epcot®, you'll need to take the monorail to Transportation and Ticket Center and then transfer to the Epcot® monorail

Best For

  • Families looking for an elegant but still kid-friendly Disney experience, with an abundance of amenities, upscale and casual dining, and direct monorail access to Magic Kingdom® Park

General Walt Disney World® Resort Benefits

Staying on-site at an Official Walt Disney World® Hotel gives you several great complimentary benefits, including free transportation and more. 

The Frog Family absolutely loves staying on-site not just for the fun themes and Disney atmosphere of the hotels, but also for the convenient amenities. Some of the other complimentary benefits include:

  • Convenient Proximity - You can easily go back to your hotel from the parks if you need a break or want to relax at the pool. It's just as easy to head back to the parks after relaxing at your hotel for a couple of hours.
  • Free Park Transportation - Overnight self-parking at the hotel is free and depending on which Official Walt Disney World® Hotel you stay at, you'll have access to the Disney Skyliner, monorails, water launch and/or bus transportation. Many of the Official Walt Disney World® Hotels are also within walking distance to the parks and other resorts.
  • Early Access to Dining Reservations - Disney Resort guests can make Advance Dining Reservations (ADRs) for their entire vacation 60 days in advance, giving them the earliest access to the most popular restaurants such as Cinderella's Royal Table and Be Our Guest.
  • Free Wi-Fi - When staying on-site, you'll have access to complimentary wi-fi, available in your room and select public areas, such as the pools, arcades, restaurants and more.
  • Recreation and Fitness Activities - Disney Resort hotels offer a variety of wellness activities through Disney Family Wellness. Some favorites include dancing to Disney songs, family fun walks and, yes, even pickleball!
  • Travel Light with MagicBands - Guests of Official Walt Disney World® Hotels can check out MagicBands that let them into the theme parks, unlock their Disney Resort hotel room, link Disney PhotoPass photos, make purchases and more – just with a tap of their band! Disney Resort hotel guests also have the option to purchase a MagicBand+ at a special discount before they arrive for their stay, allowing them to be an interactive part of the magic.
