Very easy check in- bag storage- early arrival. Valet is available until midnight of your stay. Easy access to CAP. Breakfast with characters was substantial and fun. Great service. My complaint is they offer a great deal to stay another day but you have to go back in person with the paper they left in in your room, wait in... More

Room is of normal size compared to any chain hotel. The sliding glass door helps keep the noise of downtown Disney out of the room. The only real complaint I have is that for the three days I was there with the A/C set on 65 degrees, I slept on top of the covers because it was hot in the... More

I absolutely LOVED our stay this past weekend at the Grand Californian Hotel for the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend. My mom, sister and I arrived on a Friday late morning, had a short wait at registration. The cast member was very courteous at check in. She said they would store our luggage and we would receive a text message when... More

This hotel is fanominal. Service is perfection, as usual on any Disney product. There is no early check in because they are always full. You can, however, leave your luggage with the valet and go into the park for the day. We stayed in the villas and a one bedroom gives you a full kitchen, table for 10, living area... More

The hotel is great but there has been no poolside service in our section. Supposedly someone named Christy is working our section. Christy is nowhere in sight. The two other servers just tell us we are not in their section and Christy will be right out. It's been over an hour!! Completely disappointed. (While I am typing this..A child just... More

What a wonderful experience! We traveled by car to the hotel with our tween and teen boys. We showed up early (about 10am) in hopes of leaving our luggage, parking our car and attending the expo for the race. We were greeted at the gate and they had a parking pass with our name ready to go. We temporarily parked... More

We recently completed a 3 night stay at this beautiful hotel. Everything was fantastic, very clean rooms, attentive staff and great restaurants. The only thing keeping this from getting 5's was the fire alarm test at 8am the last morning of our stay. I realize the hotel only has so mush control over this but really? 8am? Otherwise the hotel... More

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
