Orlando além da Disney

Hotel inside Disney: Grand Floridian Resort & Spa


A hotel within Disney, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, is a great option to relax outdoors, have a luxurious massage and even watch the fireworks from Cinderella Castle! Just one station from Magic Kingdom Park for the Resort's free transportation service. In addition, the hotel also has a swimming pool with a water slide, which is just a few steps from the white sand beach of Seven Seas Lagoo. Take the opportunity to also read about Disney’s 50th anniversary!

Next to the Magic Kingdom, o Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa It's so delicious and complete that you don't need to leave there for anything! From there you can see and hear the noise of the fireworks from Cinderella Castle and still have the feeling of being in your own princess castle, complete with a carriage at the entrance and everything!

You thought about vacation, you thought about the beach, right? Well, there Grand Floridian It does have a private artificial beach! In addition, it has a great spa, a romantic restaurant (it's the Victoria and Albert) and an unmissable boutique, with charming products that I have to believe! Not to mention the sumptuous lobby!

Another sensational and unmissable hotel option is the brand new Waldorf Astoria, which is very close to Epcot Center. Furthermore, the good news is that you don't even need to leave your luxurious room to see the park's fireworks.

You also don't have to worry about chasing those high-class bathroom products that you love to use even when traveling: the maids, who clean the rooms twice a day, put Salvatore Ferragamo products in the bathroom!

The hotel restaurant is perfect for those who love chic and expensive steakhouses, such as, for example, the legendary Bull & Bear Steakhouse, in NY, which is the only one that has the Angus Beef certificate.

Finally, I couldn't leave out the spa from the renowned Guerlain, certainly another highlight of the hotel.

Furthermore, as no one is made of iron, it's worth taking a look at the Millenia Mall Orlando, even if it's just to visit the boutiques or go to the Italian Brio. There you can eat a wonderful carpaccio, as well as several pasta options. It's worth, of course, saving a little bit of your hunger to taste the delicious cheesecakes from the traditional Cheesecake Factory. This is all in the same mall!

Finally, I couldn't finish this post without mentioning two of my favorite Italian restaurants there and in other famous cities in the United States: Il Mulino New York Trattoria, which is sensational and located in Walt Disney Swan & Dolphin Resort Hotel. Additionally, the illustrious and unmissable Bice, located at the Lowes Portofino Bay Hotel, at 5601 Universal Blvd.
