The Grand Floridian offers many dining options in a range of budgets, from a tasty quick service to a very exquisite, expensive AAA Five Diamond Award recipient dining location. This guide to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort Dining will share descriptions and reviews of all the dining choices.
Grand Floridian Dining Options
All major dining locations are in the main building except Narcoossee’s.
Grand Floridian Character Dining
The Grand Floridian has three character dining experiences.
- Disney Girl’s Perfectly Princess Tea Party. This experience is located at the Garden View Tea Room. Little princesses will get the royal treatment with tea for two, deliciously decorative princess cakes, plus a personal meet-and-greet with Princess Aurora. The enchanting tea party is hosted by Miss Rose Petal, a magical rose from Aurora’s garden that has come to life to lead storytelling, sing-alongs and a princess parade. Guests age 3-11 also receive a My Disney Girl doll dressed in a matching Princess Aurora gown, plus accessories. Special princesses also take home their very own ribbon tiara, silver princess link bracelet, fresh rose, special scrapbook set, and a Best Friend certificate.
- Supercalifragilistic Breakfast. At 1900 Park Fare you can enjoy a buffet breakfast with Mary Poppins, Alice, The Mad Hatter, and Tigger. Characters subject to change.
- Cinderella’s Happily Ever After Dinner. For dinner at 1900 Park Fare, you can dine with Cinderella, her prince, and the Tremaine Sisters. This is one of my favorite meals. The interactions with the sisters are some of the best on Disney property.
Grand Floridian Table Service Dining
- Grand Floridian Cafe. This is the most budget-friendly table service restaurant at the Grand Floridian. It is Victorian style and has really great dishes, the best being their egg benedicts.
- Citricos. Citricos means citrus in Spanish. The restaurant features American cuisine infused with Mediterranean flavors, plus an award-winning, international wine list.
- Narcoossee’s. What does Narcoossee’s mean? It is actually a community in Osceola County here near Disney. The heart of the town rests at the blinking light which is the intersection of Jones Road and Highway 15, also known as Narcoossee Road. As for the restaurant, it is a seafood and steak house located on the Seven Seas Lagoon. It is a great place to watch the Happily Ever Fireworks.
