    Love the panel! Can't decide if made right resort choice. DS 2,4,8 staying at GF (with discount it was the cheapest dlx) planning on afternoons at resort for rest, nap and pool. but will my boys enjoy, it looks more for adults. Would Poly be better?TY

    Hi there Annie,

    Thanks for writing!  In my opinion, it's truly not possible to make a "wrong" choice among Disney's Deluxe Resorts.  I think you have made a fantastic decision, and I'm guessing your family will have a magical trip.  The Grand Floridian is Disney's flagship resort and is truly beautiful.  My family stayed here last April, and my two boys (ages 5 and 7) loved it.  The grounds, theming and amenities are incredible.  In addition, there is a huge variety of dining options, ranging from quick-service (counter), casual buffets and fine dining.  The resort is located on the monorail, which will make getting to and from the Magic Kingdom and Epcot a pleasure with three young children.  You will also be able to quickly travel to and enjoy the restaurants at the other two monorail resorts (The Contemporary and Polynesian).  All of the Disney resorts are great for kids, and the Grand Floridian is no exception.  The pool is a great place to spend a warm afternoon, and gets thumbs up from my two boys.  My kids also had a great time at the children's activity center while my husband and I enjoyed dinner at Citricos.  We have stayed at the Polynesian as well, and my kids liked both.  They did mention enjoying the theming better at the Volcano pool at the Polynesian, but gave the Grand Floridan a higher "overall" mark.  They thought the arcade at the Grand got top grades, by the way!

    Have a wonderful trip!
