From the moment we arrived at security to departing on our last morning the hotel was great. We booked a lagoon view room and were put in Big Pine Key building with a view towards the Polynesian Resort. The room was similar to our room last year but a bit brighter - from memory last years room had wall paper while this one was painted and this helped.
Everywhere in the resort was very clean - our patio could of been cleaner but was fine for us. We ate a lot in the Grand Floridian Cafe. The food and staff were excellent.
We got a deal through a travel website which was a very good rate. I don't think I could justify the full rate that the Grand Floridian has on the Disney website. But for the price we paid it was good.
One small point I would raise would be the construction taking place between our building and the wedding pavilion - I guess this could be a new spa building? They were piling the ground and reclaiming some of the land from the lagoon which involved dumping large rocks and moving them with diggers. This work started sometimes before 8am so if you are a light sleeper this may effect you. It did not bother us too much so did not raise an issue but it would of been nice to be aware of this before we arrived and we may of asked not to be put in this building.
