The View from Here

I never imagined that I would ever be fortunate enough to stay at the Grand Floridian so when I found out Disney Social Media Moms Conference was being held here I was beyond excited. We were up before 4am yesterday morning for our flight and arrived in Orlando 3 hours later. The Magical Express brought us here to the Grand Floridian and because we were so early our room wasn’t ready yet. With the promise of a text announcing our room number as soon as it was ready, we left our bags with the bell service and went over to the Magic Kingdom. By 1:30 we still hadn’t received a text so we went back to the hotel and I double-checked with the front desk to see if maybe it was ready. The kind gentleman at the front desk said that it wasn’t ready yet, but he promised it would be worth the wait.  

He was correct. It’s a lovely room on the 4th floor with a stunning view of the Magic Kingdom. We have a sliding glass door out onto a small deck with 2 chairs and a little table. Last night we were able to watch the Electric Water Pagent and the fireworks. I feel like I’m in a Disney fairy tale.  




  I paid a fee to attend the Disney Social Media Moms Conference, but as an attendee my husband and I received complimentary items, special discounts, and other exciting benefits such as food and entertainment, so we could experience the magic of Walt Disney World.
