Description

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa takes guests back to the days of Florida’s golden era when grand hotels and opulent lifestyles were prevalent. The resort features Victorian-style structures with gabled roofs, snow-white buildings capped with red roofs and turrets, carved moldings and luxurious furnishings. The elegance follows through in a 40,000-square-foot convention center. The luxurious Grand Floridian Spa & Health Club offers a broad, balanced program of beautifying services, such as facials, manicures and pedicures. Wellness services, such as massage therapy body treatments, are also featured, along with a fully equipped fitness center.
