4. The Grand Floridian
The Grand Floridian is arguably the most lavish Disney resort on property. Themed after the grand hotels at the turn of the century, it has a Victorian feel with a lot of Disney charm. If you are looking to stay at the primo Disney resort, look no further. It is one monorail stop or short boat ride away from the Magic Kingdom, and you can be in the middle of the Magic on Main Street within just a few minutes. With its white turrets and red roof, it's easily recognizable from the monorail line. It's the only resort with nightly turn-down service, and don't even get us started on the food options! You can have afternoon tea - adults and little princesses alike - in the Garden View Lounge, or dress up for a night out at Victoria & Albert's. 1900 Park Fare hosts a character dinner with Cinderella and her friends. There's plenty of casual, quick-service options here, too. You'll also find a full-service spa, tennis courts and full marina here. There's even a salon/barber shop! The pools are incredible and offer plenty of space for adults or kids to relax and play. In the afternoons you might find a string quartet playing or Cinderella and Prince Charming dancing in the lobby, which boasts beautiful marble floors featuring favorite Disney characters. In the evening, you can catch the Electrical Water Pageant (which makes the rounds to all the Magic Kingdom resorts on the Seven Seas Lagoon) down by the marina, or catch prime viewing of the fireworks over Magic Kingdom at park close. If you want the ultimate Disney experience, the Grand Floridian is definitely the way to go.
