Stayed as part of a 3 day visit with my family. We arrived at about 12pm, so checked in early to get our park tickets and left the luggage with reception. We had booked a room on the club level. This gave us access to the lounge. On booking we did not realise how often through the day the served... More

The hotel itself was ok, but josh at check in and front desk was amazing! So polite, friendly and helpful, he really made our vacation/stay worth it. I would go to this hotel just for josh, that's how amazing he made our stay there.

I have stayed at almost every Disney resort and this one takes the prize. Nice furniture and gave you a feeling of luxury in the room. We had a nice balcony that overlooked one of the three pools. WiFi reception is poor or non-existent, so bring an alternative. Location cannot be beat. One side door of the hotel goes to... More

Stayed for 4 nights. Reserving through Disneyland is such a pain. The room itself was nice, not outstanding, but the location can't be beat. Disneyland and California Adventure is a few minutes walk by going through Downtown Disney. We parked the car in the lot across the street and didn't use it again until we checked out 4 days later.... More

Is expensive when you consider what you actually get. Essentially you are paying for location which is hard to beat. Great for park access and for coming back for a break and recharge in the afternoon. An important inconvenience was the very poor WiFi. Couldn't actually get connected unless on our balcony (or in the lobby) and then the connection... More

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
