    I'm thinking of changing our requested building at the Grand Floridian from Big Pine Key to Boca Chica building. I feel Boca would have better views toward the castle? Would garden view have been better than theme park view? HELP! which is best? (3 kids)

    Hi Kathryn!

    You are going to love your stay at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort!  The elegance and charm alone are enough to keep me coming back for more.  I have stayed in a lagoon view room in Boca Chica, a garden view room in Big Pine Key and a theme park view in Conch Key.  All views were completely different, but equally magical.  We could see Cinderella Castle from our lagoon view in Boca Chica if we popped our heads out on the balcony a bit.  Our Big Pine Key garden view room overlooked the Courtyard Pool, but we could also see the fireworks over the top of Big Pine Key.  Our theme park view room in Conch Key had a completely unobstructed view of the castle and the fireworks each evening.  

    Which is best?  That decision is up to you.  If your wish is to watch Wishes Nighttime Spectacular from your room each night, a theme park view is the way to go.  

    Have a magical day!
