Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is a wonderfully grand hotel themed after the Florida beach resorts of the 19th century.
Nestled in between the Polynesian Village Resort and the Magic Kingdom, the Grand Floridian welcomed its first guests in 1988.
This 867-room resort is often referred to as “the jewel in the crown” of the Disney resorts because of its grand architecture and beautiful sights. From rich gardens to the monorail service, the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is a must-stay for any Disney lover.
The resort is filled with amenities such as restaurants, lounges, an arcade, shops, swimming pools, playgrounds, a marina, a salon, and a 10,000 square foot spa and health club.
The accommodations at the Grand Floridian take luxury to a new level. The club-level and suite rooms utilize a private elevator to access the 225,000 square foot Sugar Loaf Key building. Most rooms house two queen beds and a day bed while suites include a living room and anywhere from 1-3 bedrooms.
The decor of the guestrooms at the Grand Floridian is themed to include spring colors, printed wallpaper, armoires, marble-top sinks, and gorgeous Victorian woodwork.
The Grand Floridian’s claim-to-fame is the gigantic, life-size, gingerbread house that lives in the lobby during the holiday season. The gingerbread house is a staple to the resort and a culinary masterpiece!
While staying at the Grand Floridian, guests can shop for miscellaneous food and drink items, medicine, and other general toiletry items at Sandy Cove Gifts & Sundries.
Vacationers can also take a peek at designer clothing, accessories, jewelry, watches, swimwear, casual shoes, perfumes, and makeup at Summer Lace.
Looking for toys and other Disney souvenirs? Check out M. Mouse Mercantile near the monorail. This store sells items like children’s apparel, princess dresses, toys, and Disney pins.
Commander Porter’s is a great place to shop for the man in your life. Here, Disney golf shirts, cigars, watches, shoes, and more can be found.
Lastly, Basin White in the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa offers all-natural bath, body, and hair care products.
