Next up in our planDisney Pocket Guide series is a resort that truly has it all. Amazing restaurants, a short walk to Magic Kingdom Park, spectacular views, and fun recreation offerings. It’s the resort where Victorian elegance meets modern sophistication. We could only be talking about one Disney Resorts Collection hotel … Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

Guests staying at this breathtaking resort will be able to choose from several different room types, including club level rooms, suites and deluxe villas. And did we mention the views? Garden, pool and even Magic Kingdom Park views are available at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

We said there were amazing dining options, and we were not joking. Cítricos, Narcoossee’s, and Grand Floridian Café are all must-dos when it comes to dining at this resort when you are looking for a table service meal. On the go and looking for a quick service meal? Look no further than the Gasparilla Island Grill that offers everything from grab-and-go snacks to Mickey-shaped Waffles and Plant-Based Burgers.

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is also the perfect resort to take a break from the theme parks and have a resort day! Pool parties are a highlight at this resort, as well as daily planned activities. Little ones will love splashing around in the Alice in Wonderland aquatic play area. Watch out for the tip of the Mad Hatter’s hat! And there is no need to head in for a snack as food offerings are available at the Courtyard Pool and the Beach Pool Bar & Grill.

Lastly, what the planDisney panelists love most about this resort is location, location, and location! Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is a short walk or a relaxing boat ride to Magic Kingdom Park. It is also on the monorail line, which can conveniently take you to Disney’s Contemporary Resort and the Transportation & Ticket Center (with connecting service to EPCOT), at this time.

planDisney Tip: Make sure you do not miss the Electrical Water Pageant that can be seen from the resort’s beach each night.
