4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at the Grand Californian for three nights in July as part of a family trip to Disneyland. Honestly, the main reason to stay at the Grand Californian is being close to Disneyland. We were traveling with a 5 year old nephew who burned out after a few hours. Quick access to the park made it easy to wander... More

Clean, thoughtful and full of Disney spirit. Enjoyed all of my experiences at Disney's Grand California Hotel and Spa. The lounge was a nice relaxing place to visit with their delicious food and friendly staff. Front desk was helpful and the bell staff generously shared their time. The spa was a nice treat though expensive.

We love Disney, but this was our first stay at the Disney Grand. It did not disappoint! The only thing I would warn travelers about is that checkin is between 3-4, so do not expect to get in a room any earlier on checkin day. The good news is you can go to the pool or Downtown Disney, so there... More

Family Disneyland vacation, mixed with a business conference. Benefits: 1.) Location. You cannot beat the fact that the hotel has its own entry into California Adventure. No other hotel offers such a benefit. 2.) Wifi. Free and speedy, I will take it. 3.) Pool. 3 pools and each pool had at least 3 lifeguards. There is even a small kiddie... More

As others have said, the location of this property is it's biggest asset. You can't beat the location for access to the parks. The close proximity makes it easy to return to the room to freshen up or rest before heading back out for more rides or World of Color/Paint the Night. The room itself is rather basic, and not...

It was a great holiday, for 6 adults and 5 children. First of all I had to say that this hotel has an unique look, with the "black palace" look lobby, the huge columns and the lighting. The rooms were big and comfortable, very clean and good smelling. All our requests were fulfilled, including baby and two small children needs.... More

This is our second stay at the grand Californian with our two young girls. What made it worth it for us was early entry every day and being as close as possible. We almost stayed this time at the new courtyard but decided the early entry was worth the extra money. We only go every year and half and it... More

Stayed for three nights while visiting Disney land. Family with three children. Stayed in a family room with bunks. The best thing about this hotel is it's location. It is the closest hotel to the parks which makes it easy to pop back to the hotel during the day if you need to. However, it is VERY expensive and the... More

At first I was hesitant to stay here due to the price and other hotels close by. However, I would not hesitate to return. The location is the best! It was perfect to go for an afternoon break from the parks at the pool or in the room. The room was spacious and comfortable. Overall, one of the best experiences... More

We booked the hotel due to closeness to Disneyland - and it paid off. We were able to break our day up by going back fro a swim in the middle of the day with ease. First up - the hotel needs an upgrade. The rooms are small and outdated so you are paying for convenience. Check in was lovely... More
