I have stayed at both the Disneyland Hotel and Grand Californian at the concierge level at least 15 times over the last 20 years. I will no longer pay the premium to stay on the concierge level. It is still very convenient to just pop into the lounge and get a snack or drink but the quality of the wine... More

This hotel has a lot going for it. It's arts and crafts theme is beautiful. It's location to DCA and DL cannot be beat. The direct access to DCA allowed for easy access, especially coming back to the hotel. The villas are lovely (my woodworker spouse particularly appreciated the solid oak furniture with dovetail joints). The guest relations desk has... More

On our first trip to Disneyland, we had the luxury of staying at the Grand Californian hotel. This is a beautiful hotel and the location is amazing. We had our own private entrance into California Adventure theme park and were a slight walk away from Disneyland's front gate. It was a nice pleasure to be able to walk through Downtown... More

We loved our stay at the Grand Californian! The hotel is very close to the parks, even having its own entrance into California Adventure! We were fortunate enough to stay on club level. Kim met us at the front for express check-in. She showed us to our rooms and checked us in and filled us in on everything, answers all... More

Chose this hotel after much research. Elected to stay here because it's part of Disney and easy access and if that's your priority then spend a little extra and stay here. We had Club floor which was a good option as you have breakfast and snacks available all day. Check in unfortunately was a real hassle and I felt they... More

for the past 3 years, I've been taking my little ones to Disneyland each year, each time we stayed at Grand California for 5 days and I've always done concierge. When i first started planning my trip, I picked the Grand California for it's location, I love that it's inside CA and I can easily take my kids back for... More

We used DVC points to stay in a two-bedroom villa and it was appointed as other similar accommodations in Disney properties--a large open kitchen, eating, living area flanked by two bedrooms, each with their own bath. We arrived at 3 pm, as noted on our reservation, but our room was not ready until 5. With the lobby totally packed and... More

As others have mentioned- the location is great. Mainly because you can come and go to Disneyland throughout the day- & because you get an hour of access to the park before it opens to the public. These are two huge benefits, as it avoids lengthy wait times that can be up to an hour for the popular rides and... More

My husband and I stayed two nights in a standard room overlooking the Downtown Disney area. We checked in around 10:30 am and the front desk helped us get a room quickly, along with providing our park tickets from a vacation package he won from our local radio station in Seattle. This hotel is HUGE and kind of confusing to... More

Yes, it was pricey. But you can't beat the location. We didn't have to worry about parking at the parks every day - we walked everywhere the entire trip. We even came back to the hotel for a nap during the afternoon every day. I wish there were more dining options right IN the hotel, but Downtown Disney offers enough... More
