This hotel is purely amazing. I was speechless with the whole thing.
I advise this for any disney dining plan with table service. It was my favorite character breakfast, had an amazing time, and was my favorite day.
Get your reservation @ 8:00. I have a tough crew to bring, so be prepared. NO EPCOT FIREWORKS THE NIGHT BEFORE! my mistake!
We took a cab for around $16.00 (including tip) from Port Orleans Riverside to the Grand Floridian. We walked through the front doors, and automatically found it. The decoration is beautiful. We checked in, and saw the pictures they were taking, so we got in line.
Around 7:55, this woman came to us (a cast member) and asked my sister (8 yrs old) if she knew the magic words. She said yes and told the lady the long word i will not spell. She said, "when you say those words, mary pippins will come out, and WILL BRING YOU AND YOUR FAMILY TO THEIR TABLE!" i was shocked! she opened the restaurant with mary pippins! she got a rose and a placemat from the hotel. It was gorgeous. The pictures turned out beautiful! be mindful they cost $35.00 and are not mandatory to purchase.
Going here then taking the monorail to Magic Kingdom is the best laid plans. I recommend this!
The food is so high class! buffet!
Mary poppins, alice, tigger, poh, and the mad hatter came out, they migrated table to table, and was amazing!
I had no complaints of this hotel, it was amazing! the dining area was fantastic! one day i would like to do the cinderella dinner, but i love this!
Im not saying your child willl open the restaurant, but if she did not it would still be magical.
I suggest leaving any hotel approx. 45 minutes if taking a taxi and 1 hr and 1/2 for a bus to magic kingdom then monorail to the hotel. This runs 8 - 11 but going there earlier and being one of the first seated is great. Book it right at 8 for there are very few spots!
We went in november, earlier while epcot food and wine was still going on! it was busy with nj teacher convention, but other than that it was amazing! (i have to stop saying that!)
