The Grand Floridian Resort and Spa will pamper you all with luxurious spa services and exquisite dinning. This hotel is also just a short walk away from Magic Kingdom, so close you don’t even have to travel there to enjoy the nightly fireworks show!

Dinner And Drinks

Every girl’s trip needs to include an amazing dinner and even better drinks. Plan on at least one night where you get dressed up and treat yourselves to an out-of-this-world meal, which isn’t hard to find in Disney. Consider California Grill located in Disney’s Contemporary Resort. You can take in the sights of Magic Kingdom and the Seven Seas Lagoon while enjoying the best Californian cooking. You can’t go wrong either at Flying Fish at Disney’s Boardwalk. You will love the seafood and atmosphere, try the Cocoa Breach for dessert, trust me!
