    hi i was thinking about staying at the grand floridian for one night. would it be worth it to stay there or at a cheeper resort on property? also can you tell me what there is there,( like shops, restruants ) thanks

    Hi Kimberly,

    Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is stunning and, honestly, expensive.  You don't mention if you are planning on going to a park during the day, so my advice would be the following.

    If you are staying at the resort to celebrate a special occasion and are planning on being there the entire day, I would definitely spend the money on The Grand Floridian.  You can spend the day by the pool and beach and plan a special dinner in one of the spectacular restaurants at the resort.

    If you are planning on spending the day at a park, and just retiring to your room at the end of the evening, I would stay at a more moderately priced resort.  Remember, everyone is always welcome at The Grand Floridian for a visit.  You can come and explore and take advantage of the shops and restaurants without being a Guest of the Resort.  The choice is yours, and rest assured that whichever resort you choose to stay at in Walt Disney World will be wonderful. 

    Please click here for more information on what you can find at The Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.  I hope you have a wonderful time during your stay!

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
