    Polynesian or grand Floridian for a honeymoon?

    Congratulations Nicole!

    I love LOVE, and I especially love that you are celebrating your Happily Ever After at the Most Magical Place on EARth! You are going to adore staying on property, and there are so many fantastic benefits associated with being a Walt Disney World Resort Guest. From EARly FastPass+ booking (60 days!) to complimentary transportation to and from the airport, to Extra Magic Hours, you will adore the perks!

    Now, whether you choose Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa or Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort all depends on the “feel” of your honeymoon. Are you lovers of a bygone era, where chandeliers and top hats abound (Downtown Abbey, anyone?), or are you more laid-back? Think relaxing hammocks and a tropical drink on the beach. Each of the Resorts is magical, and both have fantastic dining options and amenities. They are also both on the Monorail, so you have excellent access to Magic Kingdom Park as well as the Ticket and Transportation Center, where you can whisk over to Epcot. So, since you’ve already said YES to the BIG question, the mini question is, are you Cinderella or Moana?! (And FYI - I’m more Tiana, and adore BOTH of the Resorts - you cannot go wrong with either!)

    Nicole, you are going to be in great company on your honeymoon! My husband and I spent part of our post-wedding celebrations at the ‘World, and loved every minute of it! Regardless of where you stay, make sure to pick up Celebration/Happily Ever After Buttons, so that everyone knows you are celebrating your marriage. I love seeing couples in matching Minnie and Mickey EARs, so you might want to pick up a set of those too!

    If you have any other questions (or want to tell us which Resort you picked!), please don’t hesitate to come back. chEARs to the start of your great, big, beautiful tomorrow. I wish you much pixie dust with your marriage!
