Expert Review

A beautiful confection of a resort, the Grand Floridian is hands-down the most luxurious property on the Walt Disney World estate. The 867 rooms and suites interweave Disney magic with old-world, Victorian elegance. When booking, ask for a “theme park view” to take advantage of the awesome Magic Kingdom vistas (otherwise you’ll be looking out over the Seven Seas Lagoon or the Wedding Pavilion – while both views are attractive, they’re not why you come to Disney World in the first place). Direct monorail access makes this hotel a quick ride to the Magic Kingdom and Epcot, and amenities such as afternoon tea service and cooking classes for children set it apart from other 5-star resorts.
