On out first trip last year to the Disneyland Resort, we promised ourselves next visit we would stay here. And boy, are we glad we did. No, it isn't cheap. Is it worth it? So long as you don't have to make too may compromises on the rest of your holiday, absolutely. Right from the moment we pulled up in... More

We stayed a week in October as Disney Vacation Club members. We arrived very early on our check in day and were very tired. The night front desk woman was very rude and made us feel like we were not welcome. We asked if we could just hang out in the lobby for awhile and they said "no". The security... More

We stayed at the Grand Californian for 6 nights last week. We were a party of 9-7 adults and two children. As the reviews state, you are paying for location and more importantly convenience. You are paying 5 star prices for an above average hotel but you cannot beat the location! The hotel staff was great and very accommodating and... More

We stayed at the Disney Grand Californian October 15-19, 2014 and while the location and early access to the park was wonderful the hotel itself needs an overhaul. When entering the hotel, the lobby is wonderful and of a grand scale. Given the price my expectation was that the rooms would be wonderful as well. Walking into the room was... More

We stayed at the Grand Californian recently and really enjoyed it as we were travelling with a toddler and the easy access to both Downtown Disney and California Adventure made paying the extra to stay here so worth it! It's true when you read that the rooms and bathrooms could use an update but they are far from shabby.We had... More

Our family of four includes two toddlers. We stayed in a bunkbed room our first night then switched to a double queen the next because we spent the first night arguing about who should sleep up top. The hotel is beautiful in a Vegas casino sense. All wall surfaces, posts, and beams are made of fiberglass and plaster. But if... More

I know you pay for it but you get Nordstom service without the pretentiousness. From the big "Welcome!" As you drive in to the Valets and Check In, this resort caters to all. Most everyone seems genuine and actually likes their jobs. The Hotel's design kept my eyes busy with admiration and the room (we had a standard 2 queens)... More

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Grand Californian. Have been to Disneyland many times and have also stayed at the Disneyland Hotel. Have to say that the Grand Californian is our favourite. Yes, expensive but for us well worth the extra. We were there the second week of September and found an amazing price which made it even better.... More

Let me start by saying I LOVE Disneyland. I grew up in SoCal but now live out of state. I have stayed at other Disney hotels but the Grand Californian is the way to do it. Especially with young kiddos. We were lucky enough to get a discounted rate which made this hotel affordable for us. Most people, myself included,... More
