    If you are staying in sugar loaf, do you have access to the main building lounge at grand Floridian

    Hi Amy!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You made an excellent choice with your Resort! I stayed at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa last Christmas, and it was magical! Staying Club Level is like the icing on top of an already fantastic cake!

    One of the fantastic things about the Resort is that there are two Club Level lounges for you to enjoy! I just chatted with a Cast Member, and they said that as a Club Level Guest, you have access to both lounges. When you call Disney’s Signature Services at (407) 939-7777 to help plan your FastPasses and advanced dining reservations (because, if you can have Fairy Godmothers and Godfathers do the planning for you, why wouldn’t you??), verify this, as sometimes rules change!

    The Sugar Loaf Building is located in one of the Outer Lodges of the Resort. You enter via MagicBand only, and will immediately be greeted by the Lounge and fantastic Concierge Staff. I’ve heard this Lounge described as the more “casual” of the Clubs. Think more families, a bit more grab and go, rather than couples sipping cordials. The location is super convenient; it’s next to the Marina, Gasparilla Island Grill, and the boat launch to Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Polynesian Resort!

    On the other hand, the Royal Palm Club is on the third through fifth floors of the Main Building, and it is magnificent! If you’ve ever dreamed of being Cinderella, this is where dreams come true! From the Lounge, you can overlook the Grand Lobby and listen to the Grand Orchestra play a live set in the evening. Dedicated Cast Members are abundant, and the food is on the fourth floor, allowing the Club Level Guests to pick a favorite corner in the spacious accommodations.

    Amy, I KNOW you will have a marvelous time! I hope your visit is practically perfect in every way.
