The food was less than expected. Especially the room service. A fruit platter was two small pieces of watermelon. The cantaloupe was slimy on another breakfast meal. No heathy options if you are looking to eat clean.

The ease of getting into the parks via the monorail was my biggest reason for booking the Grand Floridian.
