We definitely took advantage of the the 'magic gateway" between the Grand Californian and California Adventure Park right next door.. it is just great being so handy. I was a little disappointed that there wasn't a room available with a king bed on the Concierge floor, but we were at the parks for so many hours, it didn't matter in... More

This was the fourth different Disney hotel we have stayed at and it certainly meets the normal high standard. Impressive architecture was matched by excellent service and an ideal location right next to the theme parks and Disney Village.

Just back from California and Disneyland. We stayed at the Grand Californian and it was just as expected. The hotel and grounds were amazing. Very similar in colors and style as Disneys wilderness lodge in Florida. The location is amazing and service was top notch. If we make it back to SoCal we will be staying here again.

Everyone was pretty friendly & helpful. Front desk girl definitely following the script (training?). Proximity to DD,DL & DCA was the best. Saw World of Color from 6 floor balcony. Remembered my daughter's birthday upon arrival :)!!! Turn down service with chocolate ( thumbs up)! Room a little small for price. Pool should have been a touch warmer. Toilet too... More

I've traveled to 49 of the 50 states as well as two parts of south America and Europe. I have not experienced this high quality and superior class of amenity. In my five decades of travel I have never come across the level of service and sheer grandeur of a hotel than could hold a candle to the Grand. Plus... More

When you stay at Disney, stay at the Grand Californian! Complete acces to the park, clean quiet and very comfortable. Wetook advantage of the consierge level, and completely avoided the extra cost of food at the park. Magic mornings allowed early entrance into the park, and we could go back to our room and relax without taking a huge amount... More

We stayed here for 4 days and had a great time. Service was excellent. We initially were in a room with 2 queen beds but since we had 3 adults and 2 kids, we requested one with a daybed and they moved us to one within minutes. The staff was very helpful. We had 2 small kids with us during... More

We stayed here for a long weekend in July of 2014. The hotel is beautiful and well maintained. Our check-in went quickly and we were guided to our room. We were on the second floor with a pool view room. The room is well appointed with a refrigerator, 42" flat screen television and DVD player. The bed was very firm... More
