We stayed in the Grand Floridian for 8 nights last October and while we loved it ,we all agreed we would not pay that amount again..it was a fantastic stay but whether you stay at Floridian or Pop you are treated the same..It was a fantastic location and if I were rich it would be our chosen place but no not worth the massive price tag!..Beach Club or Animal Kingdom are great!

We have swapped some of our Boardwalk nights for Grand Floridian for August this year. Used our DVC points for AKL, BLT and Boardwalk before do 1st time for us. Doing it so we can get to MK early for a Keys to the Kingdom tour we are hoping to do. It is definitely a treat as more points per night so hope we like it. 😬

Out of interest, which parks will you be going to when you are staying at GF? If it was Epcot and HS I would wholeheartedly recommend Yacht, Beach or Boardwalk over GF just for location (DVC units available at Beach and Boardwalk, too).

If you got DVC points could you consider 2 nights instead to allow you a chance to enjoy the hotel? Otherwise I'd pick somewhere else.

I stayed there for one night for my birthday. We did club level and our room had a castle view. It was an amazing experience watching the fireworks from our balcony with all the champagne we cared to enjoy. It was definitely a one off treat but I loved it.
