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... More

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... More

Hands down the best location for the parks. Get drenched on Grizzly Mountain and pop back to the room for a quick change or just for a break. The building and public spaces are really beautiful. The standard and premium view rooms are small but nicely appointed. This is NOT a value hotel but if location is your #1 priority... More

I've been a Disneyland premium pass holder for several years and I decided to finally take the plunge and stay at the Grand Californian before moving out of state. While the hotel is gorgeous and the beds are quite possibly the most comfortable I have ever slept in, the front desk check in left much to be desired. On top... More

My family and I are from Tucson, so we've got about a 7-8 hour drive to make it to Anaheim. We left Tucson around 7:30pm, stopped for dinner, getting us into Anaheim around 2:00a local time, 3:00am Tucson time. We've stayed at Grand as well as Paradise Pier many times. We come to Disney every year for our anniversary and... More

I totally surprised my husband with this stay. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and wanted an experience our family wouldn't forget. A week before arriving, they called to confirm reservations and explained our arrival. We got a 2 bedroom (reg room attached to 1 bedroom suite) suite located on the 5th floor above the Disney Store looking out to... More

It is close to California Adventure and Disneyland. It is clean, the beds are very comfortable, it has room service, restaurants and bar on premises, a spa, and pool. We went for Thanksgiving and the hotel and Disneyland is decked out for Christmas.

The Grand California is a beautiful hotel located adjacent to California Adventure and almost as close to Disneyland. In terms of Disneyland hotels, it is the nicest (Paradise Pier, Disneyland Hotel). But, it also runs about $600/night, which is at least double, and usually more, of all other non-Disney hotels in Anaheim. So you ask yourself, why? Well, the reason... More

Stayed for a few days over Thanksgiving...paid more than I have ever paid for a personal hotel stay...and got about a motel 6 experience. We had a room on the club level(level 6).

We booked a single room with bunk beds for the kids for 4 nights. There was really nothing special about the room. It was fairly small and drab but still comfortable. We were staying in the last room on the end of an unusually long musty corridor. This meant that while the hotel was technically close to the park gates,... More
