Disney's Grand Floridian Resort Family Session

One of the most iconic Disney resorts is the Grand Floridian Resort! It's a gorgeous building inside and out all throughout the year. Recently, I met up with the Toy Family during their Disney vacation for a family session. As certified Disney planners, the Grand Floridian Resort was a perfect choice for their family session!

The Grand Floridian Resort was built in the late 1980s in a Victorian style. The resort has undergone some updates in the past, but it continues to be a classic resort. One of the nicest parts of this resort is the inside lobby. It is gorgeous! It's no wonder why this resort is popular for weddings! On any given weekend, you'll see brides posing for their bridal portraits by the grand staircase or on the 2nd floor by the massive chandeliers. These are stunning views. But due to their popularity, you're almost always guaranteed to be surrounded by people also trying to get those shots as well. For our shoot, we stayed outside to enjoy the weather as long as possible since rain was in the forecast (spoiler alert: it never rained that day!) Our shoot was in late Spring when rain chances in Central Florida are almost always a guarantee. We really lucked out! It was on the warmer side but we scheduled our shoot for earlier in the day to skip the afternoon showers and hoped it wouldn't be as hot as it can get by 2 or 3 in the afternoon. Another added bonus to the Grand Floridian is how easy you can access it from the Magic Kingdom. There are 4 ways to get there from the park or vice versa: Monorail, ferry boat, bus and by foot! It's a perfect resort to walk around and explore or schedule for your vacation photos even if you're not staying at the resort!

As a photographer, one of my favorite parts of this resort is that anywhere you walk makes a perfect backdrop for family photos. There are large walkways, flower paths, patios, columns, beautiful trees and the architecture of the resort. Wherever you end up will be a beautiful space to capture your time with your family! Another benefit of sessions at the Grand Floridian is all you need to bribe your kiddos of all ages are right there at the resort! Let's be honest, sometimes bribing is needed for kids and husbands. Ice cream, extra pool time, Disney souvenirs, delicious adult drinks, literally all you need is right there!
