If you can afford it, do it. It is so worth it! Our room was great, newly remodeled, clean, comfortable and beautiful. The whole place is just awesome. Very well kept and absolutely gorgeous. You can't beat the location. I will have a hard time staying anywhere else while at Disneyland now. I've been spoiled. :)

The hotel was great, access to both parks was awesome, rides were inconveniently taken off line too often, you'd think they would do more maintenance work when park is closed🤔hotel staff was average, room service was efficient. Not wowed and would not stay again.

Our family travelled from Sydney to Disneyland Anaheim and stayed for five nights at the Grand Californian hotel. Our son is 5 and our daughter is 7. We were worried when we were notified that the hotel was under going renovations and while we were there the pool area was closed and boarded up. Other than that we were not...

Stayed here with the family over Easter weekend. Beautiful facility but not told that the pool was closed for renovations when booking the reservation. Staff was cordial but not bubbly like at Disney world. Rooms were average but not for the price. Very convenient to enter parks and downtown Disney. Overall good start but not up to Disney standards in...

I reserved the 3 bedroom Grand Villa for just one night, for my birthday. The staff knew, and greeted me everywhere I went, and a bellhop even came to the suite to deliver a plate of freshly baked Mickey Mouse-shaped chocolate-covered cookies. Every single member of the Disney staff spoke to me with courtesy and so much deference --- a...

I love this hotel and the majestic lobby, surroundings and the fact that it's located inside California Adventure Park. I knew it was under refurbishment, and the pools were closed. The room we were assigned was one of the tired, worn out rooms. That being said, there was no discount, accommodation for the inconvenience etc. I was a little disappointed...

Loved our stay in this beautiful hotel, only gripe was that we weren't told about the renovations on pool area, but the convenient shuttle to the Disney Hotel pool made it pretty easy for us to still enjoy some pool time.

Yup, location sums it up. We will never stay anywhere else. Don't try to talk me out of it. Walk out of room, stop for breakfast, walk in to park, walk back in to the hotel, sleep. Repeat. I'm sure we'll change our minds once our child gets older but until then, location, location, location.

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...
