If you are park hopping from Disney to California Adventure this is the place to stay. Even if you are just going to one of the parks, this is the place to stay. Beautiful rooms, great service from the entrance to registration. Great pool if you need a break. Close to all the shops in Downtown Disney (literally outside the... More

Spent three nights at Disney's Grand California Hotel with the family and definitely recommend on your trip to Disneyland and California Adventure. Not the least expensive but the Grand Ness of the Hotel is worth it. Makes your entire stay memorable and of course you have admittance into the parks an hour earlier - especially great for the little ones.... More

The reviews about the view don't make sense to me. You are paying to be close to the parks, who cares what you can see off your balcony. The greatest thing about this hotel is the separate entrance to the DCA. They will check your room key, so we passed unhappy people going the opposite way who were trying to... More

Wow! Just, wow! I booked 2 rooms in this gorgeous hotel to celebrate my husbands return from Afghanistan and our 16th wedding anniversary. The staff went far beyond our expectations and really made it special for us. We have a wheelchair bound son that needs some special consideration, and it seemed that they thought of what he would need even... More

We stayed from July 10-15 2016. Check in staff were amazing (cast members helping my daughter find hidden Mickeys while we checked in was really sweet!). We booked a room with a "courtyard" view and ended up with a fantastic view of Grizzly River Run and Tower of Terror. The rooms were a good size for a family of 4... More

Check in was a challenge and a half. When booking the call center convinced me that going with two separate rooms was the best versus the 2 bedroom suite. They assured me that we would see fireworks from our room. When we mentioned this on check in, the front desk person next to our check in person jumped over to... More

My family and I booked a standard view, concierge level room. I called to make requests for our room placement early (quiet room near a family with whom we were traveling). I also called to make arrangements for a surprise for my son and our family friends. The staff was fabulous, they added a bit to the surprise I planned... More

We just returned from a family vacation and enjoyed our 5 nights at the Grand California resort. The location is wonderful. Having smaller kids it is so convenient to be able to go back and forth to take breaks from the heat. The finishes in our room were very nice, and slightly better than what we were used to in...

My family and just returned from our trip to Disneyland last week where we stayed at this hotel. This is our first time staying here and if I was to return, I would absolutely stay here again.

We always stay on property when visiting Disney World & decided to do the same in Disneyland. Our choice was the Grand California. It is a beautiful hotel, the mission style is authentic. You know Disney always does it better than the real thing. We stayed in a 3 bedroom grand villa, very spacious & clean. The second level had... More
