OMG, we absolutely love this place! If it wasn't costing me an arm and a leg, we would stay here forever!  I might be an adult, but "I magically turn into a teenager whenever I come here!" There's not much I didn't cover about this magnificent hotel that I haven't covered in my previous review. We're here for the week...

Thinking we may have stayed in a room that has gone through some renovations already. At least from looking at the other guest pictures. Our room consisted of two queens and a daybed. Bedding was not dated in anyway. Fresh, clean, white very comfortable bedding. Double vanity with plenty of space for myself and two teenage daughters to stand and...

This Disney trip was multi-generational . . . three generations from 6 months to 60 . . . two young children . . . three adults. Our stay at the Grand Californian made a (very) busy week at the parks totally magical. The location was the key. It offered us easy access to the parks - early or late as...

This is a great hotel, with nice rooms, good service and a quiet and friendly ambiance. However, in those respects, it is just like any other hotel, only are three to four times the cost. As such, the only real reason to stay here is the Grand's dedicated entrance to the California Adventure Park. We arrived at 7:50, and were...

As clearly announced on the website, the hotel is undergoing renovations inside and out. It is the first room renovation since the opening 17 years ago. Disney knows it's needed and they are doing it as we speak. The decor will be freshened but more importantly outlets and electronics will be upgraded to life in 2017. The pool renovation has...

We decided to go to Disney a couple of weeks before Spring break since our Navy daughter was in port that weekend. She drove from San Diego and we flew in from NorCal. We arrived early in the morning and took the Disneyland Express Bus from LAX (book online and look for a coupon code!). When we arrived around 1130am...

I booked this hotel in November last year. I am due to arrive tomorrow and just checking the website for travel directions alerted to fact that hotel under refurbishment. Horrified I called the hotel this evening. Unapologetically they told me that if we want to use the swimming pools (the main reason I booked this hotel over others!) they will...

Everything from check in to check out and everything in between has been handled with care and a sense of magic and luxury. Well worth the price for a truly special and luxury experience. The room is beautiful, the extra events going on at the hotels are fun and exciting and the staff is amazing.

Everyone deserves a break. Though a bit pricey, the Grand California's location is the best for those that enjoy the park, but like to take a break and go to the pool. Though the pool is closed for refurbishment, was able to enjoy the Disneyland hotels pools. Very nice, with fun water slides to keep everyone entertained. If you are...

This was not our first time staying here. The resort has aged a bit and is in some ways a little out of date (no docking stations in the rooms for example). The Arts and Crafts themed rooms are very clean and there is an average amount of storage and space. But there are two things you get here so...
