Dining Overview

The Grand Floridian Cafe is a lovely gem located inside of Disney’s Grand Floridian, which is on the resort monorail loop next to Magic Kingdom. The ambiance of the restaurant is a well balanced mix of both upscale and casual dining. You’ll see people slightly more dressed up and in casual clothes if they are in between resort activities or taking a break from being in the Disney parks. Also, there are plenty of families that dine here so there is no concern that your little ones will ruin the ambiance. The theming of this dining location is also consistent with the Victorian Era feel that the Grand Floridian is known for.

One of the hallmarks of a great restaurant is the service, and we’ll be bold and say that the Grand Floridian Cafe has some of the best service we have ever received on Disney property. The wait staff is very attentive, make suggestions when needed, and the food and drinks come out promptly. In addition, we were dining with food allergies and they took great care to make sure everything was done properly and safely. Which of course makes this dining location a superb choice for those with dietary restrictions.

Now let’s move on to the true star of the Grand Floridian Cafe, the food. We enjoyed a brunch meal here. Steak and Eggs, Grand Breakfast, Banana Foster Oatmeal, and a “Minnie” Pancake Kids Breakfast were all on the menu for us.

Allergy Friendly Grand Breakfast
Allergy-Friendly Grand Breakfast

The bacon was crisp and the eggs were cooked perfectly in the Grand Breakfast, however the true star of this dish has to be the cheesy breakfast potatoes that are served with it.

The steak and eggs were also cooked perfectly, and the breakfast potatoes stood out again as a favorite. The steak was also extremely tender and of high quality.

Allergy Friendly Banana Foster Oatmeal
Allergy-Friendly Banana Foster Oatmeal comes with a delicious chocolate muffin instead of the usual banana bread muffin

The Banana Foster-Style Oatmeal while good flavor wise, it was not our favorite dish due to the fact that the oatmeal was very watery. We are unsure if the oatmeal just did not have a chance to cook long enough or if that is the normal consistency. The allergy friendly chocolate muffin however was fantastic.

Mickey Pancake Kid's Meal Grand Floridian Cafe
A Mickey Pancake Kid’s Meal is always such a fun choice!

The “Minnie” Pancake is definitely not mini sized! The pancake is actually a Mickey shape (no bow) but is definitely full sized. The pancake was gluten free and absolutely delicious. The bacon was crisp as well and out little one was very happy about his meal.

Another highlight of the Grand Floridian Cafe is the cocktails. There is a large variety of drinks available, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, and we have yet to have a bad drink here.

The Grand Colada at Grand Floridian Cafe

The Grand Colada probably has to be a top contender for best drink on Disney property. It is like a piña colada, mixed with a blue raspberry slushy, with a hint of milk shake. Just divine, and worth the meal simply to be able to enjoy this drink.

The Grand Floridian Cafe has to be one of our favorite dining locations on Disney property. It is a must if staying at Disney’s Grand Floridian, and an easy monorail ride over from Magic Kingdom or another monorail resort. Definitely take the time to stop by here the next chance you get for an amazing meal.
