We've stayed at 10 different Disney properties. This one, the Sequoia Lodge at Disney Paris, and 8 properties at Disney World ranging from the value hotels to the Deluxe hotels. The Grand Californian is what you would expect comparing Disney to Disney. Our room was very clean. No mold, no stained carpets, no dirty toilets, or dust on the walls....

This hotel was nice. We got a room with bunk beds which our kids ages 13 and 8 really enjoyed. Bring so close to the parks, especially California Adventure was a huge plus! We did a character breakfast at the hotel which was tasty and fun. Though we were aware of the pool remodel when we booked this hotel, it...

This is a beautiful property right in the heart of Disney. There is immediate access to California Adventure and access to Downtown Disney. The staff was extremely kind and helpful plus hospitality left a ghirardelli chocolate on your pillow each night. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. The only downfall to the room is that the water...

Overall, the best hotel to stay at when visiting the Disney parks. A bit pricey but service is good and staff are friendly and helpful. The room was clean and amenities were the usual. Location is great and allows you to take a break in the middle of the day and get back to the parks very easily. For those...

After being fortunate enough to stay at the Disneyland Hotel, we decided to try the Grand Californian for our next trip. It was great to be right onsite again and just steps away from the California Adventure park. The rooms were great and the restaurants too.

We stayed here for my son's 5th birthday. Two adults and two kids under 10 years old. Check in was easy. Staff was helpful and kind. We went out to Adventureland until our room was ready, then checked in, had lunch, and rested for an hour. Then we spent several more hours at Adventureland and the entire next day at...

Overall the rooms are nice and the staff is friendly but the hotel has a lot of issues right now. 1. The pool is closed for construction. We were not told this until after we booked. 2. The construction (both pool and rooms) is noisy. 3. Because of the construction, we have to go up 3 floors for ice/vending. 4....

Planned our family's dream Disneyland vacay over Thanksgiving. We saved up for a long time to stay at what is supposed to be the BEST hotel and do all the extras (character dining, etc.). We have two small children, 6 months and 2.5 years old at the time. Upon arrival, the lobby is stunning. It was very crowded and I...

We enjoyed our trip to Disneyland and California Adventure tremendously because we stayed on site at Disney's Grand Californian. We were there for a week and had adjoining rooms with our son and his family. Another son shared our spacious room. We were very comfortable in the cozy beds. We especially enjoyed getting into California Adventure earlier than outside visitors...

I did not get to check out the pool due to renovations but the hotel is phenominal and all staff was what you would expect from Disney cast...
