During Princess Half weekend (all recaps are here: Princess Frozen 5k, Glass Slipper Challenge (10k +Half)
!) I was able to stay with my cousin at Grand Floridian Villas. We stayed in a studio and there were 4 adults total.
Overall, it is gorgeous! There are Mary Poppins touches all over the hotel and everything was beautiful. One HUGE thing (which I think will be standard in DVC rooms coming forward) is the two showers. So you have the regular bathroom and toilet and also a separate shower by the sink. It made for getting ready in the morning fast!
I slept on the pull out bed under the television since I had to get up 3 early mornings in a row. I love that bed, it was comfortable and also so easy to clean up in the morning.
One down side: NO STORAGE! Seriously, the room sleeps 5 and all they had was a closet, 5 shelves in the closet, the same drawers on the night stand and one big pull out drawer under the bed and half of another one (if you pulled it out too far, then it hit the nightstand). They did have places under the bed to hide luggage though. I hope this is something they somehow fix. Most of us were living out of suitcases for the week we were there.
overall, I would stay there again. We could see part of the MK fireworks from our balcony and the hotel is just lovely. The monorail is easy (as long as the express doesn't break down which is what happened to me one night and it took 45 min to get back to GF).
Has anyone else stayed at the Grand Floridian Villas? What did you think of it?
