    My wedding was canceled due to COVID so we are having a small in-room elopement at the GF, I booked a 1BRV & the rest of our "party" are staying at various Disney properties. Can they visit our villa at the same (15 guests) for a quick toast?

    Hello Karina! Congratulations on your upcoming marriage! I am so glad you've decided to do something so special and memorable! You've selected my favorite Walt Disney World Resort - Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa - to begin your Happily Ever After!

    At the current time, the only Guests permitted to enter a Disney Resort Hotel are those who are either staying at that particular resort or those with an Advanced Dining Reservation for a restaurant located within that resort. One recommendation for you to consider would be to have the rest of your party make a dining reservation at one of the Grand Floridian's many dining locations to celebrate your magical moment! A dining reservation would permit your party access to the resort. If you decide to go this route, then I recommend either Citricos or Narcoosee's. Both are exceptionally nice settings with amazing drinks and food offerings. Another option that would cost slightly less, but would still be very nice is the Grand Floridian Cafe. This is a family favorite for a less casual dining experience at the Grand Floridian.

    Karina, if you decide to go in this direction, you should remind your party that Advanced Dining Reservations can be made 60-days in advance of your planned arrival date. I also recommend that you consider calling Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa at (407) 824-3000 to share your plans. They might be able to provide some additional information or share some extra pixie dust to help you celebrate! Best wishes for a fairy tale come true!
