The Grand 1 YachtThe Grand 1 Yacht

The Grand 1 is spectacular 52-foot Sea Ray Sedan Bridge Yacht that's available to rent for luxurious cruises on the Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake. This richly appointed pleasure craft can accommodate up to 18 people (17 if you have butler service) for unforgettable magical events. Your rental includes a seasoned Captain, and Deckhand, you can also include a Butler that will help will make your cruise an unforgettable experience. Cost for rental is around $520 plus tax, and as always prices are subject to change.

A cruise on the Grand 1 is the ideal romantic place to watch fireworks too. Imagine you and your loved one having a front-row seat for the Magic Kingdom "Wishes Nighttime Spectacular" with the music piped in. Arrange for a premium bottle of champagne to be aboard and choose to toast in that enchanted hour.

For guests seeking that special dining experience, a private meal on board can be arranged to savor on board the vessel. Carefully selected menus can be served in the privacy of the Grand 1. Dining aboard does come at an additional cost and can be arranged through private dining at the Grand Floridian Resort. If you want to create even more of a dream, the Memory Makers at Disney Floral & Gifts can help you make your date night perfect. They can even help you turn the evening into a magical proposal with all the bells and whistles you can dream up.

I think that the Grand 1 Yacht may be the pinnacle of extravagant 'grown up' pleasure for couples enjoying a romantic Walt Disney World vacation. Have you voyaged on the Grand 1? Please leave a note below and share your romantic Disney boating adventure.

The Grand Floridian has always been one of Disney's best resorts and it just keeps getting better as time goes on. The Yacht is a great way to spend the day if you don't want to visit the parks.


The Grand Floridian Yacht takes people out on the water for the day and they pay attention to the guests at Disney who can rent it out as often as they like.

We recently enjoyed a "Wishes" cruise with friends on the Grand 1. The price quoted is for an hour; if shudder to think what the cost would be for a full day's rental! We brought our own sodas and water but it would be lovely to have a catered meal onboard. It's a beautiful boat, but the lagoon can get pretty buggy in the summer so keep the sliding door closed! It was an amazing spot to view the fireworks; I plan to add a blog post very soon.

We were able to reserve The Grand 1 for our daughter's birthday.

Absolutely one of our best experiences ever! The crew was outstanding. The fireworks outstanding. The tour was also outstanding. We feel lucky to have been able to be on The Grand 1!
