This was our first time dining at the Grand Floridian Cafe. We made a reservation there when all of the Magic Kingdom restaurants were booked up on December 6th at the opening of the New Fantasyland Expansion. Located in the beautiful and elegant resort of the same name it is a short (10 minute?) boat ride from the Magic Kingdom. This casual dining room is Victorian style and lovely.
Our waiter, Ben, was outstanding! He was friendly and welcoming and he spent time describing the meals and made recommendations. We took his recommendations and had the most delicious meal of our trip. My husband had the fish of the day and was extremely pleased. I chose the New York Strip Steak with garlic mashed potatoes and vegetables. I couldn't have been happier. For dessert we had the 'Dessert Sampler for Two" which allowed us to sample very generous portions of every sweet on the menu. It doesn't get any better than that!
Having had such a great experience here I believe that we will have to return on every trip! The best part is that this restaurant is very reasonably priced compared to other Disney dining venues (not to mention a fraction of the price of two of the other signature restaurants on this property.) When you add stellar service and delicious food in a beautiful atmosphere you have an instant favorite!
