Disney World Resort Hop #9: Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort

Our final stop before leaving Orlando was Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.

The beach path from the Polynesian brought us to the Grand Floridian pool area .

There goes the Monorail!

Again, we were too early to see it in action but the Alice in Wonderland themed water play area was so cute!

The huge lobby was our next stop – beautiful, ornate, and golden.

Adorable!

The outside was just as luxurious.

Absolutely gorgeous. I can’t imagine staying here with little kids, although I’m sure it’s as family friendly as all places at Disney (they do have those little chairs!). If we did stay here, I think we’d be playing in the water most of the time anyway. So, what the heck, let’s add it to the list of future places to stay!

It was starting to get hot, so instead of walking back to our car, we decided to hop on the monorail. The kids were delighted!

We swung by the Magic Kingdom and said “hi!”

Then we hopped off the monorail and our trip was done.

Even though we didn’t go to any of the Disney Parks, we had a pretty great Disney vacation!
