We always stayed at the Grand Floridian when visiting WDW/Orlando area. The Grand Floridian has not renovated the bathrooms since they have opened their doors for business & we finally got sick and tired of paying the exorbitant prices for the Grand Floridian. We looked for a luxury hotel to stay in and we found out that a Waldorf Astoria had built a new hotel within the WDW complex. JACKPOT! Let me just say,WOW! We got a steal at $199 for deluxe rm with Disney view and upon arrival upgraded to a suite with a balcony and a view of Epcot. The rooms are luxurious,beautifully done with high end furnishings. The bathroom is huge but has only single vanity. Has a soaking tub and stand shower with glass doors, Our suite has a bar/dining area and a large living rm & bedroom was separate. We never received the turn down service but the daily housekeeping was excellent.
I used the pool,gym and ate at both restaurants,every aspect was top notch and satisfying. Bull & Bear was fancy schmancy but you do not have to be dressed tho the nine when dining here. Food was very good,not excellent but good. If you must have breakfast,get the buffet. Fresh squeeze juices,pear/strawberry/orange/grapefruit/carrot/pomegranate..etc. Italian spread of prosciutto/salami/fine cheeses/nuts/olives...etc. French pastries...the best banana pancakes! There's a lot more well worth the $28 pp
I don't like ordering in but you must try their room service!
I thought I was going to miss being on the monorail but the hotel has a shuttle (tour bus) that makes stops at all the WDW parks. Very professional and comfortable.
They are connected with the Hilton and you can easily walk to Hilton to try their restaurants.
Try La Luce! We went their twice and both times, the food was outstanding!
