This is my second stay at the Grand Californian Hotel at Disney's California Adventure Theme Park. I always check into the hotel early in the morning prior to the park being open. The valet takes our luggage on a cart and they store it until the room is ready. This allows us to take advantage of the early entry into... More

Note: my review is specifically for the Disney Vacation Club (time share) component of the resort: The Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa We checked in at the end of July for a short, two-night stay, in a Deluxe Studio. The check in process was a bit awkward for DVC; I'd blame that on that the facility is... More

My wife and I thought we would do a special family vacation and take our six year old to Disney land for the weekend. This will be a fairly short review as I am sure there are many more reviews out there that have a lot more information on the park and staying at Disney properties. This is my review... More

I had a great time at the hotel. I spent it with my brother and his family. My niece jumped up and down saying Mickey water, Mickey water when we saw the light show from our balcony. We are looking forward to going back next year with my parents and my husband.

Stayed here for 10 days in August and was really impressed. Fully part of the Disney experience. It's an old fashioned hotel around had an hour to central L.A. There are lots of bus tours to LA Universal and Sea World who do hotel pick ups from here or you can rent a car if you want to travel away... More

Long time user of trip advisor, travel enthusiast and former airline employee. But after my recent stay at the Grand Californian, I felt compelled to sign-up and write my first ever review. Before I start on why my stay here was so poor, I will say that I really appreciated the fact that you can drive up to the front... More

This place exemplifies what Mr. Disney must have imagined when he 1st broke ground on his fun park way back when, as this place truly is magical. From the period piece clothing the Valet drivers wear, (I loved their 20's era golf-looking attire,) to the Arts & Crafts style furnished lodge lobby, complete with generous wood work, beamed lofts, and...

This hotel is literally 30 seconds away from Downtown Disney which was the best part! I thought the lobby was amazing but the rooms were basic. We stayed two nights and had no issues at all, everyone was nice, and we had an amazing time! I do wish I would have tried the food there but the food at Downtown... More

My family are big Disney-philes. We have been to Walt Disney World over 10 times. We have been to Disneyland twice. The best hotel we have stayed at in Orlando or Anaheim is by far the Grand Californian. The rooms are designed perfectly for families. We are a family of five. However the Grand Californian had a perfect room for... More

My partner and I returned yesterday evening from four nights at GCH and it was the worst hotel stay we've ever had in our lives. It was a three-day complimentary stay gifted to us totally by surprise (we never ever asked for it and didn't see it coming) by Disneyland Resort VIP services to make up for our annual passes...
