    I have a dinning reservation at the grand Floridian at 10am, is it possible for an Uber to drop off at 7am to explore the grounds prior to our reservation?

    Hi Laura! You are just days away from visiting Mickey and Minnie! I’m excited that you have Disney Dining reservations at one of my favorite locations – Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa! You’ve selected a beautiful resort to tour during your vacation!

    Yes! You are welcome to visit the resort prior to (or after) your dining reservation! My wife and I really enjoy visiting other resorts while on vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort. We try to visit at least one new Walt Disney World Resort hotel while on vacation! Touring other hotels gives us a good idea of future vacation destinations! 

    Laura, you might want to consider saving your tour for after your dining reservation. While the grounds of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa are picture perfect in the morning, (I love sitting outside Gasparilla Island Grill in the morning), you will find that many of the shopping locations located inside the resort are not open yet. The unique stores are quite nice to visit! I also recommend peeking at the Enchanted Rose lounge! This lounge is themed to Beauty and Beast! The menu of specialty drinks and bites is delicious! I just wish they offered the "grey stuff" as a dessert bite! It is a great dining location in a beautiful resort! Have a great tour!

    Happy Planning!
