Stayed here for the second half of our holidays after moving from the Disney Wilderness Lodge.
Having walked through this hotel on a few occassions in the past, we were very excitted about staying here. We had booked a standard room through Expedia on discount.
On arrival we were treated very well, staff were great and friendly. Even though everyone is dressed the same in shorts and tshirts we still felt like we should have dressed up to stay here. I asked the receptionist for a free room upgrade. She disappeared and she came back after 5 minutes and told us she had upgraded us to conecerge. When we walked into the room we realised we were upgraded to one of the top suites. It was massive. Walk in wardrobe, marble units, it was just wow. Even the bath want the usual Disney mini bath. It was so deep i felt i was in a swimming pool. The tap water even smelt different, clean and fresh.
Conecerge ment we had free snack foods all day, drinks and alcohol. When I say snack foods, I mean you could live of it, breakfasts, scones, pastries, chicken, hams etc.
The Grand Floridian is just amazing. The location is worth paying for. 24 hour fast service food, 2 pools, everywhere is clean.
The only problem I found is that you shared the same bus with the Wilderness Lodge. The bus went to the Wilderness lodge first so the bus was busier and during peak times I could see it being full. Being such an expensive hotel it should have its own dedicated bus.
