Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
The Grand Floridian is a fine display of the splendor of the old grand Victorian hotels. From its spacious verandas, wicker rockers and ceiling fans, to the red shingled, gabled roofs and intricate latticework, this stately resort offers elegance and charm to all who come here.
Victorian architecture is in abundance with the towers, dormers, cupolas, exposed gable trusses and band-sawed gingerbread. This impressive style extends to the monorail stop, which is designed to resemble a Victorian train station. The breathtaking lobby ascends 5 stories in height and is capped with lavish stained glass domes. Glistening chandeliers, an aviary, potted palm trees and a grand piano providing live music, add to the lavish ambiance here. An open-cage elevator operates to transport guests to the second floor shops and restaurants. Romance abounds at the Grand Floridian and on a private island off the resort, you?ll find the Fairy Tale Wedding Pavilion. With a picturesque view of the Cinderella Castle, what more charming location could a couple want to exchange marital vows. Wedding packages can include visits from characters as well. For more information, call Disney?s Fairy Tale Weddings and Honeymoons at (407)363-6333.
The Grand Floridian Convention Center features 40,000 square feet of flexible function space with a state-of-the-art sound and lighting system. With 16 breakout rooms, a business center, satellite up/down link capabilities, vast exhibit capabilities and comprehensive meeting support, the Grand Floridian Convention Center is a very attractive location for business conferences or meetings. Custom-made merchandise can be ordered for conferences or meetings held in WDW resorts. For more information, call the Specialty Merchandising Department at (407)363-6433.
Also, nightly, weather permitting, the Seven Seas Lagoon is the backdrop for the Electrical Water Pageant. Dancing lights on a 1000-foot string of floating barges shimmer over the lagoon and Bay Lake. This 7-minute show can be viewed from Narcoossee?s or the boat dock of the Grand Floridian between 9:00 and 9:20 p.m.
Any child who has ever dreamed of being part of a pirate adventure will enjoy this recent venture by the Grand Floridian Recreation team. Children ages 4-10 will be outfitted with a pirate bandanna and board their pirate ship (pontoon boat) at the Grand Floridian that is equipped with telescopes and a map to aid them in their quest to find the hidden treasure.
They will sail to exotic ports-of-call masquerading as other resort marinas, and find and follow clues that take them throughout the Seven Seas Lagoon. Lunch is served to give these little adventurers the sustenance they need to complete their mission. At the last port-of-call, the adventurers split up to hunt for the treasure. When the children return to the boat, they discover that the treasure has been found! A treasure chest full of goodies like jeweled rings, pirate "gold", Mardi Gras beads, noisemakers and rubber snakes awaits them.
