We used our DVC points to stay one night at the Villas at Grand Floridian. The curbside staff didn't seem as friendly as the staff at the Grand Floridian Resort but the check in staff were great. The layout and decor is really nice. The room was very clean, nice layout, and the split bath is a nice feature.
The only negative that didn't effect us but I could see being a huge issue is the lack of storage. There is one large drawer under the bed and two in the nightstand. Even though the room can sleep 5, there is nowhere near enough storage for that many people to unpack their luggage for a stay longer than a few days.
It is a couple minute walk from the front door to the main Grand Floridian resort building where the shops, restaurants, and monorail station are located. The resort pool with the slide and the mad hatter splash area are both right next to the villas and are very convenient. Just a note for those who have stayed at the resort, there is no valet parking at the villas like there is at the resort.
We had a great stay and would stay here again.
