I had stayed at the Grand Floridian before, as at the Polynesian and Contemporary. This time I went with my family, including two children, for New Year´s Eve; As everyone knows, the place is very handsome, but surprise! as soon as we got there we were warned that we could not get a meal inside the hotel unless previously reserved....

We stayed at the Grand Floridian for our wedding in October 2008 and had an amazing experience. Due to the fact that it was for our wedding, we were upgraded for free from our standard room to the club level in the main building. The food was always really great on the club level and it was nice to have... More

It was perfect for my eight year old. He is not a strong swimmer and he was very comfortabale in the pool. The service was excellent. The room was... More

We stayed at this hotel from Dec. 17 - Dec. 21 and the place was decorated to the nines with beautiful Christmas decorations. We spent the majority of our time in the parks so we have nothing to review except how the hotel looked.

We had always wanted to stay at the Grand Floridian but did not for budgetary reasons. We received a coupon for 40% off off peak stays so we decided to give it a try. We loved the convenience to the parks, the staff was really nice and attentive to us. We did not have any of the other negative experiences... More

All my years, I had always stayed at Contemporary or the Polynesian and never at the Grand Floridian (mostly for budget reasons). Well, finally- the grand splurge!!
