I love all things Disney, and when it comes to vacation planning, I often chose a Disney related one. I grew up in Southern California and did my fair share of Disneyland visits. These were day trips for the most part as we lived less than 1 hour away. Now that I live out of state, I have to think...

This hotel was beautiful and the location was perfect for visiting Disneyland. Such a short walk to get to the theme park. We stayed only one night because of the price. We were unexpectedly upgraded to the 6th floor which has its own concierges and rooms to watch the fireworks. The room was large and clean with a balcony big...

If you want complete convenience to the amusement parks this is the place to stay. With this hotel and the atmosphere in a good portion of the new California park Disney has taken the feel of the northern part of the state and transplanted it down here to a SoCal version. The in the woods, lodge feel is what they...

If you are looking into one of the three onsite hotels at Disneyland, I take it you have kids and don't expect a relaxing or romantic trip by any means and it is convenience with a tad bit of bonus quiet time that you are seeking. If that's the case, Grand Californian Hotel is the best out of the three...

We stayed at the Grand Californian one time before in 2002 when our first born was only 8 months old. At that time, I remember being absolutely in love, as the location could not be beat. It was so convenient when having an infant, when I frequently needed to go back to let her rest, nurse, etc. I also remember...

The hotel is beautiful the grounds are so well kept, just like the park. We are Vacation Club members so we stayed in the Villas. The amount of room and the accommodations in the villas is very nice. The only issue is the fold out sofa. It is a little hard and my daughter chose just to take the cushions...

We stayed here in early March with our 3 kids and my sister from LA met us with her family and 3 kids. It is worth staying on property because of the proximity to disney/downtown disney and ability to do magic mornings and return to rest in the middle of the day. I was hoping that we would enjoy the...

We loved how close the hotel was to the parks. It's a beautiful hotel and has a great staff. It's a very busy hotel and we thought the pools were a bit disappointing...we expected them to be more "kid-friendly".

When we first walked into the place, we were AMAZED!! The lobby is phenomenal!! the amenities and the staff are absolutely exceptional. We bought an "upgraded" room, but were a bit disappointed. It was small, dingy, and looked like your typical $100 a night hotel room. The breakfast with characters cost just as much for us patrons as it did...

Location is the best part of this hotel. Stayed here March 2nd through the 6th and was overall pleased with our stay. Check-in was busy, our taxi driver commented how busy this hotel was for a Sunday at 3pm. Boy, he was right long line to check in but went fairly quick. My husband was not feeling well and our...
