    Hello-We will be staying in a 2 BR in the Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian resort. Do we need to bring HE detergent for the washing machine and what kind of coffee (k-kups or ground coffee)? Thanks

    Hi Andrea,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question! We on the panel love helping guests to plan magical vacations. The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is such a lovely resort. I love the Victorian elegance at this resort, and the quick access by boat or monorail to Magic Kingdom is wonderfully convenient.

    As you know, there are many amenities in a two-bedroom villa at a deluxe villa resort that make vacationing so convenient. You are thinking about two of my favorites! I love to start my day with a cup of coffee at my villa, preferably on my balcony as I watch the resort wake up. My family uses the washer and dryer in our villa nearly every day on vacation. This allows us to pack less clothing, and thus save on extra baggage fees with the airlines.

    In all of the deluxe resort villas, I have found the following on my trips. The coffee pots in the deluxe villa resorts take regular ground coffee. I bring a vacuum-sealed pack of coffee and basket filters with me on my vacations for use in the coffee pots. As to the washer, it will take regular laundry detergent; you do not need the high efficiency kind. When you arrive at your villa, you should find starter packs of coffee and laundry detergent in your villa.

    Have a wonderful time on your magical vacation, Andrea!
