The hotel feels like home with a touch of Disney. The cast members were extremely helpful and friendly for our first visit to Disneyland. The location is perfect and the walk to downtown Disney and to the 2 theme parks was easy to get to (under 5 minutes) There is an entrance to Disney's California by the pool but make... More

We traveled to Disneyland in April with a group of 6 people. Since my inlaws are DVC members, we stayed in the Vacation Club's villas. It was AMAZING! We are from New England and usually visit Disney in Florida and stay at the timeshares there. This was so much bigger than the units at the Boardwalk and Wilderness Lodge in... More

Great location and overall hard to argue that staying here is ultra convenient. The hotel is nice, but in no way Grand or 4 star. The rooms were poor and very tired, bathroom was pretty awful but functional. We both looked forward to a decent shower in the next place ! Disney do need to look in the mirror and... More

Exceptionally appointed the grand Californian stands up to its name. Spacious rooms with separate sink to bathroom, the hotel is excellently positioned to both Disneyland and Californian Disney (with direct access to the park). The pool is beautiful including a great slide for the kids. Room for improvement ? The storytellers buffet is certainly not worth the price tag !... More

Disney's 60th anniversary celebration is a must see and experience. We booked our reservations over a year ago in order to lock in the best rate through the Disney Travel Company. What I love about booking through the Travel Company is you can make your deposit and pay on it monthly until all is paid in full before arrival. So... More

In numerous trips before to the parks I'd daydreamed about staying here. This trip I decided the price was going to be worth the access to the hotel in late-July to beat the heat and rest mid-day. I went all out and stayed at the club level on the 6th floor. The 3 day, 3 night stay was with my... More

This was a bucket list stay for me. I have looked at this hotel for years and longed to stay here. We booked 4 nights over the 60th Anniversary weekend and I was not disappointed! The hotel was beautiful, staff - oops - cast members were very nice and helpful, rooms were very clean, and the view of the park... More

We have stayed at several Disney properties at the "Deluxe Level" and this hotel simply shows the more you pay the better your stay. This hotel has it all, quick front desk, speedy bell services, great restaurants, good pools and clean and quite rooms. If you want the full California Disney experience this hotel is your best option. Disneyland Hotel... More

We have been to Disneyland at least a dozen times and have stayed at the Grand Californian the past 2 visits. The location of this hotel makes a world of difference in how you spend your day! I know it's expensive...and we are not rich....but if you want a great experience, save up your money and do it. You don't... More

Outstanding location. First classic every way. You spend a little money but you get your money's worth. Fun for grandkids. We had 9 ages 2-11 and the different swimming pools were a big favorite after early morning trips to the theme parks.
