Booked a two-night stay due to its proximity to Disneyland. And proximity is probably the only justification for the high rates. Check-in was good - staff went the extra mile to get us a room with two twins and a daybed before stipulated check in time. She was also very friendly and knowledgeable. After a long walk from the lift... More

We had the pleasure of staying at both the Grand Californian Disney Vacation Club Villas and the Grand California Hotel rooms last week. Particularly the DVC rooms are spacious and comfortable. We had a view of California Adventure, but with the doors closed you could hardly notice the noise. It was also fun watching the goings on after hours as... More

This is a beautiful hotel and it was so fun to stay on Disney Resort property. We were able to walk right into California Adventure right around the corner from my favorite ride, California Soarin'. It is nice to have the "Disney" experience at a hotel beside inside the parks. Also, it was great when I got tired during the... More

We go to Disneyland a number of times of year, we decided to stay at the California Grand. Its nice nothing bad but its very overated. It gives you the lodge feel, but not alot more. The service is not overwhelming compared to the Disneylandland Hotel. From start to end it seemed to be nothing exciting, most the staff did... More

I stayed here with friends for the Avengers Half Marathon. The convenience of this hotel can not be overstated. Private entrance into Downtown Disney, a short walk from the security leading into the plaza separating Disneyland and California Adventure, Private entrance into California Adventure, and a short walk to the other Disneyland hotels (great for getting to the Expo at...

Another stay at the Grand and another great experience. Staying club level is the best with children. No need to worry about breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks--there is always something there for the little ones to eat. Complimentary cookie decorating kits were a hit. The fireworks from the balcony were great especially with the desserts and hot chocolate to keep us... More

I'll be honest here. I'm an HHonors member, so staying 'off-site' was a challenge when planning our Disney vacation. So why did I? Location, location, location. Okay, there are a few other reasons, but you can't beat the location of the Grand Californian. Plus the Extra Magic Hour (different from pass holder's Early Hour) gives you an essential head start...

Despite calling in twice before we arrived, there were no notes on file about any requests for room type or location. Checkin is interminable. We were told by the checkin clerk that if we applied for an Annual Pass while we were there, we could use it for the discount at checkout, but when we checked out, we were told... More

We stay here a couple times a year and consistently receive great service and leave feeling we got good value. The property is gorgeous and clean, and worth every penny. Very convenient access to california adventure. The hotel is not quite as luxurious as some of the premier hotels around the world, but with the number of kids running around... More

The location was great, the room was amazing, we got connecting rooms and one had the most amazing bunk bed - the kids (ages 6, 5 and 2 1/2) were beyond thrilled. The details in the rooms were beautiful, and the extra magic hour makes staying at a Disney hotel worth it. Loved everything about it, and the Christmas decorations... More
