Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

Staying Deluxe at Disney

I’ve visited the Grand Floridian more times than I can count, ate at multiple restaurants, multiple times but I’ve yet to stay!? I’m excited to finally be staying over the 4th of July weekend!? It’s a surprise for my husband and kids!? We LOVE the festivities during the holidays and the fireworks are the best you’ll ever see!? So a day at the pool during the hottest season in Florida sounds like the perfect all American 4th of July weekend!

This monorail resort has the elegance and styling of a Victorian-themed resort of? Palm Beach’s golden era.? The resort is situated next to the Magic Kingdom on Seven Seas Lagoon and has views of Cinderella’s Castle and “The Happily Ever After” nightly fireworks show.Main building Grand Floridian Resort

Although the Magic Kingdom is next to the Grand Floridian Resort, it is not easily accessible by foot.? It is best to take the monorail from the second floor of the main building, one stop and you will be at the Main Gate.? If you are looking for a resort with walking access to the Magic Kingdom, check out Disney’s Contemporary Resort.?Monorail Exit

You can easily walk between Disney’s Polynesian Resort and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort.? As you pass between the two, you’ll walk by Disney’s Wedding Pavilion where brides can have a fairytale wedding complete with views of Cinderella’s Castle during the ceremony!?Wedding Pavilion Gates

Hi, I'm Jamie, traveling mama, entrepreneur, and travel advisor. I'm addicted to Disney, traveling and exploring the world with my family, and have a passion for helping families experience the magic of travel. My home is filled with love and chaos, 2 crazy girls, 2 large dogs, and the most spectacular architect and Disney Cast Member I call my husband. We live in Florida and spend our weekends playing at Orlando's many theme parks and visiting the beach. In 2015, after helping numerous families plan their vacations to various Disney Destinations, I started a blog to answer all of the many travel questions I received daily. In 2016, the blog grew into a travel agency, and Love of the Magic Vacations was born. With a team of nearly 20, we spend our days creating family vacations around the world. What started as a blog is now a full service, worldwide vacation destination planning service. I create custom itineraries for each of my clients that not only meets but exceeds expectations. There is no greater gift than making memories while sharing the world and its cultures with your kids.
