PHOTOS, VIDEO: Tour a Theme Park View Room at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
Have you ever wanted to stay in a theme park view room at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa? Perhaps you overlooked booking a room there because of the higher rates. We’re providing this report to help you make an educated decision. We booked a theme park view room at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa so that you could tour it with us.
The room is ready. Let’s get going!
As with many resort rooms, you’ll usually find the bathroom first.
Theme Park View Room – The Bathroom
Located right inside the front door, this room delivers all the amenities that you need to feel refreshed. We first noticed the huge vanity with plenty of space. The large counterspace and the storage area beneath the vanity provides lots of room for use.
The towel hamper seems to be a nice touch, as we don’t find them often at resort hotels. It offers a place to hide the mess of wet towels and washcloths. Besides the space and the hampers, we found ample number of outlets and a nice makeup mirror.
The bathtub appears to be a little small, though elegant.
The shower fixtures are nice enough. All the usual amenities have been laid out for us.
Though intellectual property doesn’t appear anywhere else in the bathroom, we noticed the Mary Poppins songbook cover behind the door. It’s nice to have something to look at while you’re using this room, so the songbook supplied a nice touch.
Look closely at the roll of toilet paper. The detailed Grand Floridian stamp indicates that you’re staying at a deluxe resort.
A nice touch.
The tissues on the vanity also present the logo!
Theme Park View Room – The Bedroom
The expansive size of the bedroom is just down the hall. The large size furnishes ample room to move around without feeling like you’re going to stub your toe on the furniture.
The room features two soft beds with plenty of pillows.
A chandelier hangs over the room, giving it a regal atmosphere.
As with most rooms, a charming nightstand snuggles in between the two beds.
The nightstand drawers can hold quite a lot. They serve more like dresser drawers due to their large size.
We felt that they were the largest nightstand drawers that we’ve seen at Walt Disney World.
The top space on this nightstand appears pretty spacious, too. It also features a power outlet and a USB charging port.
At the desk, we found a Keurig with K-cups along with an ice bucket and cups wrapped in plastic.
Those who count on their caffeine in the morning will definitely appreciate the Keurig. You may not need an entire pot of coffee, but a single cup to greet you in the morning can really rev up your day.
The cups may not have been as elegant as the rest of the room, but we appreciated that they follow proper hygiene. Disney constantly keeps the pandemic in mind when considering our safety.
The lovely hidden Mickey appears in the sophisticated design on the back of the desk chair.
We only found two USB charging ports on the desk. This doesn’t really provide enough charging options for most visitors. The average guest at Walt Disney World usually needs to charge multiple devices.
This rolling table provides extra work space, especially since the coffee and ice bucket stations take up most of the desktop. Many rooms feature a separate beverage station, but this one didn’t have the space for another piece of furniture.
Moving to the dresser with the television mounted just above it, we noticed four drawers on each side and a large cabinet in the center.
A small refrigerator hides within the cabinet. Though not surprised, we were relieved that we found a place to chill our drinks and snacks.
On the dresser’s top, we found a placard informing us about enhanced cleaning procedures. Of course, this may ease guests’ misgivings about the sanitization of the room. A clean television remote is sealed in plastic to assure you that other guests and staff have not handled it after its cleaning.
We found a pleasant sofa in the corner with a mirror above it.
The mirror holds two lamps. The design ties in perfectly with the room décor. Still, we wondered about the sofa. Is there something more to it?
Many sofas can convert into a queen size bed. Disney has made many changes to rooms all across all their resorts to provide additional bedding options so that larger parties can find rooms.
We investigated (the rather beat up sofa bed) to see if this was such a device.
The top flipped down to reveal a bed for one. It wasn’t a queen, but an additional guest could sleep there. Of course, that guest couldn’t be too tall.
Theme Park View Room – The Balcony
Now we strolled to the balcony to take a look at the reason we booked this room.
The small balcony overlooks Seven Seas Lagoon. Two chairs and an end table appeared ready for us to sit down and relax.
Nothing else had been placed out here besides the furniture, but what else would you need to enjoy the view?
We could already hear the ferry boat horns and the chirping of birds.
Let’s face it. This is the reason that Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is one of our favorites. The stunning view of Magic Kingdom and Seven Seas Lagoon makes it worth the money.
From here, you can easily see Space Mountain and Cinderella Castle.
You can also see Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
As the sun sets behind Magic Kingdom, the oranges and yellows create a gorgeous picture. The way the sunset colors reflect off of the lake captures the imagination. It’s by far the best view from a resort around Seven Seas Lagoon.
