Stayed four nights at a park view room. The room is very outdated. Not dirty but outdated. The rooms are comparable to a 150 night hotel anywhere else. So you pay for the location. It's super convenient to have access to California adventure park. TiP: for Early hours at the park it's way better to go to main entrance. The... More

We were in room 3343 facing California Adventure, and could see the fireworks really well off of our balcony. We heard that there are very few rooms that offer a view of the fireworks so they don't advertise this. This is a fabulous location within literally minutes of the Magic Kingdom entrances and steps of California Adventure. By staying on... More

We came with our 22mo old. It was the perfect location to return to for nap time and to touch base when needed. We didn't have enough time to take advantage of the pool or character dining but will come back to do so! The staff was very friendly and even upgraded our room at check-in! We will definitely be...

You are definitely paying for location at this hotel. And you certainly can't beat being at the heart of Downtown Disney. However for close to $400 a night I would have expected a king sized bed, not two double beds with motel 6 style quilts on them and a plain basic cheap motel feel to the room. We were put... More

When I saw a 2 bedroom villa availability at The Villas @ Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa during the Father's day weekend, I instantly made the reservation since we've been wanting to stay at that hotel. As DVC members, we used our points so it was ok but if I have to pay 1200$-1500$ per night, I would have... More

Upon entering the hotel late in the evening, it felt very Beauty and The Beast like. It was a great way to start a trip to Disney. Overall the staff was extremely friendly. When I asked about postage stamps at the concierge, they offered me free postcards and delivery of my postcards. All the staffs are really well informed about... More

Five-star location, three-star service and price. This is our 2nd visit to Disney's Grand Californian Hotel. Making reservations was simple, check-in seamless. The valet/bellmen, greeter are very personable, front desk clerk and maids are less personable. The location of this hotel is the most convenient of all hotels when visiting Disneyland/California Adventure. It has an entrance directly from the hotel... More

We visited this hotel for four days during early June. Our room overlooked Downtown Disney. We found the room to be lovely and the beds very comfortable. Some of the reviews had said the hotel was rundown, but I have no idea of where those people had stayed. It definitely was not at the Grand Californian!The staff was friendly and... More

We LOVED our stay at this hotel! The room was beautiful! We forgot our daughter's favourite blankie and they have shipped it back to us at no charge! We are so grateful!!!! It was so convenient to be so close to the parks. It was also great to have the magic hour each morning!

When I was going to book last year, there were plenty of negative reviews that were making me question whether to book or not. I asked a few friends who had stayed there and all encouraged me to book and listen to them rather than the reviewers. Thank goodness we did. It was for my birthday celebration. Typically, we will...
