Reason # 1,000,001 that I would love to stay at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa at the Walt Disney World Resort:
The Alice in Wonderland-themed Water Play Area!
Okay, yes, it’s for the young ones, but… I wanna play there, too! Or at least just sit and relax and enjoy the Wonderland view.
This beautiful location opened in Fall 2012 and has madly entertained young Resort guests ever since…
As the beautiful Victorian-style Grand Floridian Resort & Spa has always had a particular affinity for Alice and her Wonderland friends (as well as Mary Poppins and her friends!), it seemed a perfect fit when this delightfully-themed play area was introduced!
And of course I wanted to go see it!
While you need to be a guest of the Grand Floridian (and under the height limit) to actually douse yourself here, anyone visiting the Resort can still stop by and soak up all the details.
The area consists of a wading pool/splash zone and water slides with water-spouting tea cups and teapots along with the Mad Hatter’s hat dropping water in a tipping-bucket assembly above – all making for a wonderful way to cool down in the Florida heat.
But the best part is how it incorporates all the charming Wonderland features – from the teapots and tea cups to pictures of characters such as Alice, The Mad Hatter and the White Rabbit – making it an extra-magical Disney place to play!
And of course it’s all found in the midst of the absolutely gorgeous grounds of the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa – which is definitely worth a walk-around unto itself!
Have you stopped by the Grand Floridian and seen this lovely play area? Or even better – did you stay here with your family and get to enjoy it yourself?
