Last month I wrote a basic guide to staying on property at Walt Disney World, but as promised, it’s time to delve deeper into all that Disney’s flagship resort, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, has to offer.
I have to admit that I was somewhat concerned about staying at the Grand Floridian with small children. I know from experience that nearly everything about Walt Disney World is kid and vacation-attire friendly, but I had my doubts:
Would we feel awkward around couples looking for a more refined Disney experience?
Would the kids enjoy their stay at a hotel whose theme they would not “get”?
Would we find anything on site that the kids would actually eat?
Would I under-tip the room attendants and doom my children to a vacation free of towel animals?!?
Throwing caution to the wind, I decided that the opportunity to stay at a monorail resort while my children were still in strollers was a blessing that far outweighed any of my concerns. As it turned out, my fears were unfounded!
While a note from Mickey on our travel magnadoodle was surely a highlight, our entire stay at the Grand Floridian was magical. Here is just a taste of what you can expect from your vacation at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa…
