We have stayed at the Grand Californian at least half a dozen times now. It is really starting to show its age. We just stayed at the Legoland hotel and that hotel was truly amazing and what an experience for the kids. The rooms at the Grand Californian are just looking tired and dingy, especially the bathroom (yuck). They really... More

First up, let me say that this review is for the DVC villas at the Grand Californian, not the hotel side. We are DVC members (Disney's timeshare) who live on the east coast so we usually go to the FL WDW resorts a couple of times a year. This was our first stay at the VGC and we thought the... More

After trying "off-campus" hotel for our last visit, we were happy to be coming back to the Grand Californian. Just the piece of mind that our family of 5 (younger kids) could go and regroup in our room and yet still be so close to the park, is worth the price. The hotel is probably ready for a makeover but... More

Stayed for the weekend with 3 young (6 & under) grand children in a premium concierge room. Upon arrival, we were escorted to our room - no need for check-in as it was done directly in our room by our friendly hotel concierge. Received exactly what I requested, including bunk beds and a view. Nice little extras for all 3... More

We originally rented a local, walkable condo near Disneyland and immediately decided we couldn't stay there. While the condo we rented was completely renovated inside, the complex was rundown and dark, we just didn't feel safe. So we called the Disney Grand and were able to save our vacation and move there immediately. The rooms are clean and nothing particularly... More

Disney is a great experience for all ages but the adults need the chance to unwind too. THis hotel is full service, and we made use of most of them. We used in room dining to catch the Magic mornings, and this put us all in better moods to explore on full stomachs! The pool is inviting and easy access... More

We visited Disneyland in January 2014. This hotel lived up to it's reputation and price. Worth EVERY penny. The location is fabulous...so easy to get to both parks and Downtown Disney. The staff was impressive and so very pleasant. Our room was ready when we arrived. Clean and cool. The bell staff brought up our luggage promptly and gave us... More

Wow, the atrium/lobby of this hotel has to be seen to be believed. It is simply the most gorgeous and astounding I have seen. It is pricey but almost worth it and if you stay out of season or are a Annual Passholder you can get some nice discounts. It is nice as it's by far the closest hotel to... More

Read a lot of the reviews prior to booking this hotel. Yes, it is a bit pricey but "you get what you pay for". Found our 2 room suite very roomy with lots of storage. Bedding and decor were upscale. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Received timely text message that our room was ready. Had an electric stroller for rent... More
