Cheerio! And warm tidings from Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. We’ve had SO many reader requests for a re-review of this fun offering! Far be it from us to deny that desire!
There are so many foodie things we love about this resort, like the Chicken and Waffles at the Grand Floridian Cafe or the all-new Beauty and the Beast themed lounge, Enchanted Rose (check out our full review HERE!).
But recently we decided it was time for a spot of tea, so we stopped in to the Garden View Tea Room!
We may all love Dumbo, but there’s another elephant in town!
The BoardWalk Inn‘s waterside, Coney Island-style decor takes notes from places like Atlantic City. The atmosphere, the culture, and history are all part of what makes this Disney resort so unique. The BoardWalk even makes a nod to America’s oldest surviving roadside tourist attraction, Lucy the Elephant! Right now you can join in celebrating Lucy’s 138th birthday!
One of the most exciting things about visiting Walt Disney World Resort is that there is always something new to experience — even if you’ve been hundreds of times. Here we’ve gathered 36 Things You Didn’t Know You Could Do at Walt Disney World — so let’s all go try something new!
This moving Magic Kingdom experience requires no Fastpass+ — just a desire to participate in a formal flag lowering ceremony held at the Magic Kingdom flagpole in front of the Walt Disney Railroad Station. The ceremony includes fanfare by trumpets, the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, and the singing of God Bless America and the Star Spangled Banner accompanied by the philharmonic.
After the lowering and folding of the flag, a guest veteran is handed the flag and a short procession up Main Street, U.S.A., is accompanied by a medley of U.S. military songs. This event takes place daily, so check with Guest Services or the Times Guide to find out when to watch!
