We had room 5447 in the Grand Californian - which was what they called Downtown Disney view - but they should have called it Disneyland View. We could not see anything of the park but trees and the top of the Matterhorn but it was amazing to watch the fireworks from the balcony.
The only 'bad' experience we had was one day when 'security' was doing something to the door card readers and then we were locked out of our room. We went to the front desk and got brand news cards but they still did not work and we were still locked out. Someone from the front desk came up and gave us each one fast pass for any ride except Star Tours. They made us feel like they cared whether we were satisfied with what they tried to do to make us happy.
If you are going to try to eat at the Storytellers Cafe in the hotel, make sure you have a reservation otherwise it could be an hour long wait for a table and their beepers only reach the first floor. The variety and choices at the buffet offered at dinner time does not measure up to cruise ship or all-inclusive buffets I have been to but I did not leave hungry either.
