Overview

Discover the crown jewel of Walt Disney World Resort at this Victorian-inspired Resort reminiscent of Florida's golden era. Here, the entire family can enjoy Disney at its grandest, with lavish décor, spectacular views and impeccable service. Cool off in the huge Beach Pool and breeze down the 181-foot-long waterslide or perhaps pamper yourself at the world-class spa, offering all kinds of divine treatments. Make sure the kids take an afternoon siesta as every night the Electrical Water Pageant, a floating, lighted procession of 'sea creatures' takes place on Bay Lake followed by the evening fireworks light up the sky over Cinderella Castle. Amid elegant Victorian surroundings, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa offers distinctive dining selections for breakfast, lunch and dinner to please almost any palate and getting to the Disney Parks is easy with a Monorail service direct to Magic Kingdom Park.

Why we love it

This Disney Deluxe Resort is nothing short of outstanding in every single way. From the moment you arrive in the lobby it will take your breath away and you will be waited on hand and foot as the Disney’s Grand Floridian staff are so accommodating and insist that nothing is ever too much. It’s no surprise that this is Disney’s flagship hotel!

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is undergoing refurbishment until the end of October 2025. Guests may be able to see and hear construction around the resort – including the lobby – during daytime hours, but should not hear any noise from guest rooms between dusk and 9.00am. Most hotel amenities will remain available.
