With monorail service and a brand new walking path to the Magic Kingdom, you’re closer to the magic than ever before at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.

The crown jewel of Disney Resorts, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa is an elegant retreat located across the Seven Seas Lagoon from the Magic Kingdom. The moment you arrive, a breathtaking, 5-story atrium with magnificent chandeliers and stained-glass domes welcomes you to this Victorian-inspired resort.


Here, you can relax on lavish sofas and listen to live music playing on a grand piano. An open-cage elevator and a marble staircase lead guests upstairs to shops, dining and the monorail station on the second floor.

Inspired by historic seaside resorts such as the beautiful Hotel Del Coronado in California, Disney’s Grand Floridan Resort and Spa pays homage to the turn of the century Victorian homes. The white-washed building’s verandas, dormers and cupolas, red-gabled roofs and gingerbread trim evoke a timeless elegance. This distinct look even extends to the monorail stop that is designed to resemble a Victorian train station. Manicured grounds with breezy palm trees add to the clean and upscale ambiance. Housekeeping staff dressed in white pinafores carry frilly parasols and look as if they stepped out of a scene in Mary Poppins. White sandy beaches lined with beach chairs beckon for you to watch the Florida sun set over the gleaming Seven Seas Lagoon.

Can you imagine a more magical place to start your happy ever after? In the Main Building, there are a variety of Club Level rooms and suites including 6 honeymoon rooms. The Whirlpool honeymoon rooms feature a jetted tub and a balcony, and the Octagon honeymoon rooms have a spectacular view from multiple windows. There are also one-, two- and three-bedroom suites available. Suites have two queen sized beds, or one king sized bed, and a separate parlor area with a wet bar. Some suites can accommodate up 10 adults.

The majority of the 900 guest rooms are located in the outer buildings surrounding the Main Building, aptly named after coastal Florida islands: Sago Cay, Sugar Loaf, Conch Key, Boca Chica and Big Pine Key. The rooms feature glass-paned doors that open to patios or balconies, many with picturesque views of landscaping, the pool, Seven Seas Lagoon or the Grand Floridian Marina. Standard guest rooms are approximately 440 square feet and have two queen sized beds and a day bed, or one king sized bed and a queen sleeper sofa. Most Standard rooms accommodate 5, plus an infant age 3 or under in a crib. Accessed through interior hallways, the rooms offer soft colors and intimate lighting for a cozy place to rest your head at the end of a busy day.

The Grand Floridian Resort is the only Walt Disney World property that offers two club level lounges. The Royal Palm Club in the Main Building serves as the concierge lounge exclusively for guests staying in the suites and specialty rooms in that building. The Sugar Loaf Club is located in an outer building, and serves as the lounge for all other concierge level guests. Club level rooms entitle guests to concierge guest assistance, small bites and beverages (including limited alcohol), free DVD rentals from the resort and — upon request — complimentary bathrobes and turn-down service. (Please note – Club Level rooms are not currently available for reservations.)

If you are looking for a home-away-from-home, you might consider The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. While most of the amenities are shared between the Villas and resort hotel, the Villas offer larger accommodations for guests desiring more space for extended family. Beautifully appointed Deluxe Studios and one-, two- and three- bedroom villas offer living space, dining areas, full kitchens, and washer and dryers – all the comforts of home.

Specialty Fireworks Cruises in the Grand One provide a memorable evening with fantastic views of the fireworks from the comfort of a chartered boat. Nosh on delectable desserts while you cozy up for a night under the stars — and get dropped off just steps from your room.

If you’re more of a land lubber than a sea farer, there are plenty of options to fill your day while keeping dry! Indulge in a luxurious massage at Senses, a Disney Spa and Salon. Burn off some energy at the fitness center, the basketball court or on the jogging trails. Or head up to the second floor of the Main Building for some upscale shopping.
