Walt Disney World® Resort offers so many excellent suites, and not to be left out is The Grand Suite at its flagship property, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Tour the Grand Floridian Resort on Glass Slipper Concierge’s YouTube channel.
From its fifth-floor perch, the Grand Suite offers 2,220 square feet of luxury featuring five dormer-style balconies with sweeping views of the Seven Seas Lagoon, Cinderella Castle, Space Mountain, Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, even Spaceship Earth in the distance.
A long entry hall with a marble half bath leads to the sunny, turreted living room with dark hardwood flooring and crystal chandelier lighting. Furnishings are in shimmery cream/gold tones with splashes of color in the persimmon-hued throw pillows on the two chenille sofas. Centering the room is a large area rug and oversized black marble and gold coffee table. Off to either side of the sofas are two taupe easy chairs and a comfy chaise lounge.
The room’s dining table seats four, and nearby is a small desk in an alcove. And there’s always a lovely floral arrangement to enjoy in all the Signature Suites. A marble wet bar features an under-counter refrigerator, coffeemaker, and microwave. Where’s the TV you ask? An oversized TV screen is hidden cleverly behind a framed wall painting that rolls up with a bit of Disney magic.
Off one side of the large foyer is the master bedroom. A king bed with bronze leather headboard is angled to face the bureau above which sits an oversized TV. Also to be found is a mirrored vanity desk, easy chair, and balcony views of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, the wedding chapel, and the resort’s Beach Pool. The solid cream-colored marble master bathroom has double sinks, soft golden wallpaper, two closets, a large alcove whirlpool tub, huge shower, and a separate toilet and bidet.
On the other side of the entry foyer is a second bedroom with two twin beds, chaise, bureau and oversized TV, a single-sink bath, and a balcony with the suite’s best view of Cinderella Castle. Both bedrooms have bronzed ceilings and shimmery neutral tones, and throughout the suite are lovely crystal chandeliers and fixtures.
As with other suites at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, the Grand Suite has access to the Main Building’s Royal Palm Club and all it’s amenities. It’s the perfect choice for a Grand and magical vacation.
