Last week I posted the above picture and asked for guesses as to where it is located. As always, there were some great guesses, but two people knew exactly where to find this rug.
Congratulations to Linda and Disney Dennis who both knew that the rug can be found at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Specifically, this is located in the lobby of the resort. With its high ceilings, grand staircase, scenic elevator, and victorian inspired decor, the lobby certainly contributes to the “Grand” in Grand Floridian. I always say I feel a little underdressed when I visit this hotel, because of the luxurious vibes it gives off, but it’s so incredibly beautiful.
Disney is really good with theming and that isn’t just limited to their attractions. You can see the talent for theming in the hotels and the Grand Floridian is no different. From the main building, to the outer buildings, to the DVC building, the beautiful theme is carried throughout. Because of the theming, there are plenty of great photo opportunities around the resort. For instance, outside the lobby guests have some photo opportunities with an antique car and a carriage.
In addition to the decor, there are some great dining options at the Grand Floridian, different recreational activities, two pools, and monorail access right from the hotel. There is also a walking path from the Grand Floridian to the Magic Kingdom. Keep in mind, some of the options are still temporarily unavailable, but hopefully they will return soon.

Even if you’re not staying at this resort it’s definitely worth a visit. This is especially true if you are there during the holiday season, because of the giant gingerbread house that sits in the lobby. It smells delicious in the lobby and there’s a window in the gingerbread house where guests can purchase different items. Plus, it’s a great photo opportunity.
Congratulations to everyone who knew where the rug is located and thanks to everyone who played along! What’s your favorite thing to do when you visit the Grand Floridian?
