Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

4401 Floridian Way
Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830
1-407-824-3000

This Victorian, old-world elegance resort sits on the white, sandy beach of Seven Seas Lagoon, right in front of the Magic Kingdom. High-class dining, accommodations and service await you here. The resort is on the Resort Monorail loop, connecting it to the Magic Kingdom, the TTC, The Contemporary Resort and The Polynesian Resort. Despite it's close proximity to the Magic Kingdom, you are not able to walk to the theme park. Feel like spending the afternoon on the water? Head over to the marina for a boat rental and get a unique view of the area by jetting around the lagoon.

You can also find select liquor, beer and wine at the main gift shop. You are paying for convenience here, so don't expect reasonable prices.

Food
They give out a small bowl of assorted nuts to your party for free after they take your drink order.
'Lounge Fare' available from 5:30pm - 10pm
Includes: Hummus and Flatbread, Goat Cheese, Charcuterie and Shrimp Cocktail. Assorted desserts also available.

Cigars
To Walt's dismay, this is probably the only place on property you can buy a cigar and a cocktail at the same place. (Remember when Disneyland had a cigar shop on Main Street?)
Cohiba Toro - $24
Hemingway Short Story - $10
Monte Cristo Platinum Rothchild - $14
Romeo y Julieta Habana Short Churchill - $11

Atmosphere
Small and a little bland with classy cocktails and prices that deserve top hats. After a few short steps down, you'll notice a large half-moon bar with about 10 barstools. Scattered throughout the rest of the space is an assortment of coffee tables and chairs, some set up for larger parties, others for 2. I didn't feel that the grandour of the resort flowed into this lounge as well as it could have. After the amazing grand room the boring styling feels almost like you stepped into a Radisson by mistake - still nice, just not "Grand" anymore. The back wall is made up of several large windows so it does provide a good view of the resort grounds and the Magic
Kingdom (kind of . . . if you crane your neck . . . and look way over there . . . no, that way). Thankfully there is a flat screen tv to enjoy since there isn't much else to look at.
 

Raspberry Rain & SidecarReview
You'll find the missing "elegance" of this place in the drink menu - $255 for 2oz of Remy. We tried the Raspberry Rain and Sidecar on our first visit. We did enjoy the free nuts, but as you see in the photo that by the time we finally received our drinks we were nearly finished. Very slow service considering it wasn't that busy.
The Raspberry Rain was excellent. Hibiscus vodka, chambord and lemon juice gave it a pleasantly sweet yet tart flavor. Very refreshing and light and goes down just too easy! The fresh raspberries were a nice touch. Small drink for the price, but it does include high-end liqueur, so it's a worthy splurge.
The Sidecar was another excellent decision. Strong, citrusy with a hint of tart - just like an old-fashioned drink should be. Same small size as the other, but considering the expensive ingredients here (Courvoisier & Cointreau) it's a decent deal.

If after ordering your drinks they don't give you the assorted nuts, ask for them. They are there, but we think if the servers are too busy they skip it.
