Grand Floridian Resort & Spa Facts and Fun

The Electrical Water Pageant, a floating, lighted procession of "sea creatures," takes place each night on Bay Lake at 9:15 p.m. (weather permitting).

Ready to enjoy the grand life? Charter the Grand 1, Disney's Grand Floridian's 48-foot Sea Ray Yacht, for a pampered cruise on the Seven Seas Lagoon. Rental fees are $350 per hour, which includes charter fee, Boat Captain and deck hand. Food packages and service butler are optional.

The restaurant 1900 Park Fare is the home to Big Bertha, an organ built nearly a century ago in Paris by Gavoli & Co. and used from 1909 to 1955 in an amusement park in Grand Rapids, MI. The instruments include pipes, drums, bells, cymbals, castanets and a xylophone played by a piano-roll score.

Watch the Grand Floridian ladies twirl their way to work at the Courtyard Parasol Parade on select mornings at 8:00 a.m.

The two large chandeliers in the lobby are 16 feet tall and 14 feet wide at the base. Each weighs approximately one ton and has 44 candelabras.

The gallery located near the entrance to Victoria & Albert's features 11 original maps of Florida dated from 1775 up to the period of railroad tycoon Henry M. Flagler's railway lines.

Disney's Grand Floridian Resort opened on July 1, 1988.

In the lobby, look for the large birdcage, then look down to the baseboard and you'll see a mousehole!

Mizner's Lounge is named for Addison Mizner, an architect who specialized in "Gatsbyesque" mansions in Palm Beach and Boca Raton.
