Disney’s Grand Floridian Beach Resort Hotel
Disney’s Grand Floridian Beach Resort hotel opened in Walt Disney World, on the west shore of Seven Seas Lagoon on June 28, 1988. It was inspired by the Victorian era beach resorts built along Florida’s east coast during the late 19th century and early 20th century. It’s exterior is modeled after the Mount Washington Resort in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire and Hotel del Coronado in Coronado, California, with red gabled roofs and white walls. Additional design inspiration was taken from the Belleview-Biltmore Hotel in Belleair, Florida. The resort’s outer lodge buildings: Sago Cay, Sugarloaf Key, Conch Key, Boca Chica and Big Pine Key are named for islands in the Florida Keys. The resort’s main building features a five story lobby, a replica cage elevator, stained glass domes, and Italian marble floors with inlays of various Disney characters. During daytime hours, a grand pianist performs in the main lobby while a house orchestra plays on the second floor balcony every evening.
