Grand Floridian and Port Orleans Riverside!


Welcome to those of you joining me from The Disney Chick and those of you just hopping aboard!
I am the 2nd stop on our Magical Blogorail!

This months topic is Favourite WDW Resort!

Having never stayed in any of the WDW resorts ... I did a little research and decided to share with you the ones I would most love to visit!

First up, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa! This resort looks breath-taking! The elegant Victorian feel reminds me of the charm of Main Street ... one of my favourite parts of the Magic Kingdom :) And a white sand beach? Yes please!

Have any of you guys been to the Grand Floridian? What's it like?! :D

Another resort that caught my eye was the Port Orleans Riverside Resort :) Inspired by rural Louisiana, it reminds me of riding round Thunder Mountain on Molly Brown and Mark Twain riverboats in Disneyland Paris! This is one of my favourite things to do to chill out at dlp ... so what better theme for somewhere else where I'd love to relax!

Also the new Royal Guest rooms look so awesome! Check this out from wdw.infocom!



Fireworks are my favourite thing ever! So it's safe to say I'd be mesmerised for hours by that fireworks display above the bed! I wonder if I can get one at home!

Has anyone been to the Port Orleans Riverside Resort? Or even stayed in a Royal Guest room?? Is it as amazing as it looks?

On my last (and first!) visit to WDW last October, I stayed in a villa, which was fantastic! But I hope one day I can go for the whole Disney experience and stay in one of these amazing Disney Resorts!

Both beautiful resorts! Staying at The Grand Floridian is such a wonderful experience. Our favorite building was Sugarloaf. Just gorgeous!

Manda - You are right, the Grand Floridian is certainly breathtaking! :) The rooms at Port Orleans Riverside are gorgeous. They made great use out of space that a lot of guests didn't want to stay in because of it's location.

We will find a resort for you!
