    Will be staying @ Grand Floridian in 17 days. Would like recs on which area/floor is most optimal to request to stay at. Don’t want to be too far away that it takes forever to get back & forth but also want to be able to have quiet/down time.

    Hi, there!

     Oh my gosh, Kate - your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just around the corner. How very exciting!

     Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa really is grand. Elegantly themed and offering Guests lavish experiences, this unique hotel is the epitome of luxury! I recently stayed at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and had an absolutely lovely visit. I stayed in Big Pine Key, one of the outer buildings, on the 4th floor. I recommend you request this building because it's just a few minutes walk from the Main Building, yet nice and quiet. The Lagoon View rooms in Big Pine Key are particularly peaceful, but are considered an upgrade. You are still welcome to request a Lagoon View without upgrading, but know that there's no guarantee to any room requests made. It certainly never hurts to ask, and I've found that most of the room requests I've made at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel have been granted!

     Did you know you can make up to two room requests when you complete Disney's Online Check-In Service? You can conveniently check-in prior to your arrival on My Disney Experience. 

     Be sure to spend some down-time in the beautiful lobby of Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. In the afternoon and evening, there is wonderful entertainment in the lobby including performances by the Grand Floridian Lobby Pianist and the Grand Floridian Society Orchestra. 

     Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kate!
