Hotels for Smiles

Not for those without a sweet wallet or high visa credit card limit! We found it very upscale and trendy. The fancy pools were a charm to play in. Use the sidewalk to walk directly to the Magic Kingdom. Not for the PoBoy (Poor Boy), but worth every dollar charged.

The pictures of the gingerbread house that is in the lobby of the Grand Floridian hotel will get you ready for the trip. We spent mega time in the really large swimming pools. It is Voted Top for Orlando Resorts.

good times come in all forms especially at a really premium hotel. Exceptional is everything about what they offer. We so much enjoy the entire area as this town has a lot going on. I would think a day over at the NASA space ship launch exhibit is a good option if you have small kids. This is a big upgrade from the Ramada Inn hotel we stayed at last year. If you go out to eat one evening try the Black Angus Steak House restaurant for a fancy dinner that's family friendly.

Orlando's Best Theme Park Resort

It is something way cool and above the top. You can sail away, take a Boat Taxi, or just walk to theme park play. A fantastic Orlando Beachfront Hotel Option at Disney Orlando. Go sailing, paddle a kayak, or play beach volleyball in the middle of the Disney Fun.

Resort with a Beach

There was plenty of my-pick-shopping opportunities to pick up anything from batteries and newspapers to a complete wardrobe of higher end clothing. We enjoyed the zero entry pool as our boys are small. The room was spotless and all the decor was in perfect condition. The Monorail outside was so convenient. From the moment we entered the resort the cast members were so friendly and welcoming. Orlando is loaded with good oriental places to eat like imperial dynasty when you go out Exploring the area. There were double sinks in a dressing area across from the closet.

It has a great twenty four hour food service with the game room. Everything at the Grand Floridian is just fabulous! We stayed at the sugar loaf with concierge service. Impressive are the tiny carrot zucchini muffins and apples are left out for you upon arrival. The hallways outside the room were quiet and attractive. A wide array of food choices is nice. We splurged on this trip and had a view of the Theme Park which we all loved. I would definitely come back again and I can't wait to do it. The grounds were well landscaped and it was a pleasure to walk around the resort.

Beach Hotel

We love the play and stay Orlando Hotels that are fun. Get away at the all-ages quiet pool that includes an adjacent kiddie pool, with whirlpool spa. You will like the food at the waterfront narcoossee's cafe or go to eat at Citricos. It is worth doing the fabulously festive all-you-can-chow breakfast buffet! It is just one stop to Magic Kingdom Park on the zippy resort Monorail.

Even if you are ninety, drop down the long waterslide down the mini mountain. We spent a lot of time at the courtyard pool, which is nice like the big one. Grand Floridian we knew it was nice, but the victorian elegance hits a home run. What a day for we saw Aladdin Soars on Main Street and the fireworks. Get a napo litaly Pizza and bring it to the park on arrival date to eat by the pool.
