|This Disney Resort Hotel is a Military Disney Tips Tested Resort!|
We had the opportunity to stay at the Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa in the summer of 2018 during the Toy Story Land opening event for Travel Agents and Press. The room was wonderful, we could watch the monorail going by. The single stop while riding the monorail to the Magic Kingdom was awesome!
This Resort is Disney World’s priciest!
It should be noted that in recent years the monorail has become less than reliable due to maintenance and staffing issues, and you are paying a big premium to stay on the monorail loop! See our recent experience in the Our Thoughts section of the Polynesian Village Resort Page.
Note: we were kindly offered 1 complementary night and then 2 more at a highly discounted rate by Disney for the event.Related Posts:
