We love staying at the Grand Californian every time we go to Disneyland. This trip though had some downfalls. First being that they now added a security/ body scanner inside the hotel/California park entrance. It is a long slow line every morning and you have to get scanned/ and bags checked every time. If you pay extra money to enter...

To put it simply, you're paying extra for a little bit of sanity in an insane place that you're voluntarily going to. I have previously made 4 trips to Disneyland and this was by far the easiest due to the fact that: #1 - I can walk right into the park from my hotel without massive crowds or delays. #2...

We stayed in a $1200 suite, which is basically just 2 rooms with a door in between. The bad: Had to instantly call cleaning services when we entered to vacuum the floor as there was old pasta left on the floor. Carpet is dirty. Rest feels like older best western. Creaky doors, clunky sliding doors to bathroom, TV's that barely...

Looking at the other reviews, yes, I would agree that the rooms are "slightly" dated, but give me a break, my kids had no clue. When you stay at a hotel with a family of 5, and spend what it takes, you want SERVICE. And we got it, Disney style. I booked online and really wanted the room with the...

Vegas has changed from 2003 to now , it's not really geared for families anymore, rather singles and party goers with most hotels losing their themes , shows are still great but overall everything has become very expensive especially food and drink.

We stayed at The Grand Californian for 4 nights, in a two bedroom suite. The hotel was phenomenal. The suite was among the nicest we have experienced. Our grandchildren loved the pool. It was very geared to families. The staff was helpful and personable. We loved the convenience of the hotel's proximity to the park.

Location was perfect easy walk to Disneyland Park and...

As you would expect from Disney this is a great, family-friendly luxury hotel. You can't beat being steps away from your room after a long day in the parks. The rooms are nice, they have everything you need, and you can't beat the view. The pool area is great for kids and there are tons of options for restaurants. Worth...

This is hands down the best location for a hotel at Disneyland. That alone may be worth it depending on your situation. The common areas of the hotel are very pretty and our experiences with the staff were all very good. Don't expect nice rooms for the price though. The rooms are surprisingly dated. No easy places to plug in...

Upon arriving, we told our room wasn't ready, so we provided our cell number and headed to the "downtown" area to grab some lunch and visit the parks. After about 2 hours, we were called and told our room was ready. Told that our room keys were already programmed, we headed up to the room. The keys did not work...
