4. Grand Floridian
Thirty-five years after its opening, the Grand Floridian has established itself as a flagship resort of Disney World. Its fantastic architecture can be seen on any monorail visit, and the interior is a classy affair. Granted, it can feel a bit stale, and it sometimes seems off seeing guests walking from the pool area through this fancy lobby. Yet the lobby itself is marvelous, especially during the holidays, with huge trees and gingerbread houses.
There’s also the fine dining options, the beach and lake recreation, and the little ones love being pampered at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. It’s a prime spot for weddings with its own pavilion and honeymooners as well. While it’s one of the most expensive resorts in all of WDW, the Grand Floridian is worth every penny in terms of what it offers Disney guests.
