We had 2 suites for a 3 generation group in Sept. 2014. One 1 bdrm suite, one 2 bdrm suite (12 ppl + 1 baby). Terribly $$$, but worth it for location, extra a.m. hrs., Disney "magic" & amenities. Very clean & well kept; so nice to have full kitchen (you can go broke by eating out around here!). Kids... More

If you are undecided this may help Stayed at the Grand Californian for 3 nights during the Tinkerbell Marathon and Mother’s day. Most reviews will tell you how beautiful the hotel is and I will not go into the details of the beauty as that is something anyone wandering around the resort can come and see at no charge. As...

Check in super fast and super friendly. I had a club room which was very big and nicely decorated in what I guess is old California style. My only problem with it was that it wasn't well lit. The Craftsman's Club was accessible to club room guests and provided pretty much everything you might want. Dinner in the hotel's Napa... More

This was our second time staying at the Grand Californian Hotel with our three-generation group. We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. Especially enjoy having a little balcony off the room. Location is perfect. Housekeeping is great. Staff is helpful and considerate. Rooms are pricey, but that is to be expected.

We loved the convenience of staying at the Grand Californian, however there were just one or two things that just weren't up to our expectations. First off our upgraded room was right next to a loud air conditioning unit for a shop in downtown Disney so we couldn't even keep our patio door open it enjoy being on our patio... More

The Grand Californian lobby is beautiful and reminiscent of an old lodge you might find in Yosemite. Our room worked well for us with a comfortable queen bed and a bunk bed. The bunk bed is great as it gave each of our children their own sleeping space. The bunk bed also frees up valuable floor space, making the room... More

We stayed at the Grand Californian for 4 nights to celebrate our daughter's college graduation and partake in the kick off of the 60th anniversary. We have stayed here many times in the past. From the time we checked in until we left it was absolutely wonderful. We ordered special cake pops for a surprise and they were very delicious... More

It was great to be adjacent to the park and get in one hour early. It would have been helpful to have a sheet of tips about the park, fast passes, etc at the concierge desk. I also think that the on site activities were not up to par with what I would have expected at a Disney resort. The... More

I stayed here for the MD&M medical show. It was a nice room. I had a veiw overlooking Downtown Disney, it did get a little bit noisy at night. The location is great for close acess to the Disney resort. The staff on the other hand seemed overstressed and under-paid. Just not what i know the Disney magic to be.... More

Disneyland and CA Adventure are crowded these days - we went Sunday through Thursday at the beginning of May and had a 15 minute wait to talk to someone about checking in. Our room wasn't ready, and so we had another 15-20 minute wait to leave our bags with bellman. Our room was fine - nothing spectacular for the price,... More
