6 Reasons The Grand Floridian Resort & Spa May Be Right For You

6 Reasons The Grand Floridian Resort & Spa May Be Right For You!I had the pleasure of staying at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa with my sweet mom for a mother/daughter retreat. It was a very special time for mom and I, not only because it was the only trip we have taken just the two of us to Disney together, but because we stayed at the Grand Floridian! The Grand Floridian was absolutely fabulous! We were very happy and we will definitely be back!

I am always turning someone else’s bed down so, it was a nice retreat for my mom and I to share together. Since we had such a fabulous time, I have compiled six reasons the Grand Floridian may be the resort for you and your family while visiting Walt Disney World! Since we had such a fabulous time, I have compiled six reasons the Grand Floridian may be the resort for you and your family while visiting Walt Disney World!

Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa: A Disney World Resort1) Spacious Rooms

First up, the room! The room was very spacious and a lot bigger than most rooms at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa: A Disney World Resortother resorts. At a whopping 440 square feet, this is massive compared to other Deluxe resorts. So if a spacious room is what you are looking for, then this is the place for you. The room was beautiful and the porch overlooking the water boasted the perfect serene scenery. It was the perfect place to drink coffee in the mornings or to rest your feet after a long day at the parks. If you need more convincing how lovely these rooms are, just look at these pictures!

2) Convenience

Location, Location, Location! The location, of course, is very convenient to the Magic Kingdom. We could actually hear the Magic Kingdom’s train everyday while we took a nap. (Yes, we took a nap! It was so nice.) You can easily take the monorail or taxi-boat to the Magic Kingdom, it was a very short ride with either form of transportation.

Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa: A Disney World Resort4) Awesome Restaurants (Quick Service and Table Service)

The Grand Floridian is full of fabulous eateries! Of course, everyone knows about the famous sit down restaurants, but the quick service restaurants are great too! Mom and I were super excited that they had a lot of organic and gluten-free selections. Everything was super easy to scoop up and run to the parks with or to sit and eat.

The pools and play areas were absolutely awesome! Whether you have little bits or older kids the pools are excellent for all. The splash pad area is adorable. We also love that you can see the fireworks from the main pool.

6) The Fireworks

6 Reasons The Grand Floridian Resort & Spa May Be Right For You!The fireworks were absolutely amazing from the boat dock of the Grand Floridian. Mom and I were not expecting that at all! Disney pumped the music in from the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular, so we felt like we were right there (but, without the crowds!). Do not miss an opportunity to catch the fireworks from various locations at this resort.

There is a price for every good thing. You do pay for luxury at the Grand Floridian! The Grand Floridian is considered a deluxe resort at Walt Disney World. Therefore, be ready for a heftier price tag. However, with the bigger price tag comes service that is hard to beat and plenty of amenities and luxuries. This resort definitely made our mother/daughter retreat super special. We enjoyed every bit of it! Whether you want a long couples’ weekend, a mother/daughter retreat, or fun with the kids, this resort delivers!
