To start off this trip was planned 8 months ago Disney Resort is absolutely beautiful The staff needs manner classes from staff in Florida Never so rude nor noncaring attitudes !!!!! Never spoke about "Welcome Home" which is a motto used by Disney when you belong to time share . the only people who really took care of you At...

We stayed in a Studio Villa by renting points through a third party (getting a room steeply discounted from rack rates). This was our second stay in four years. The rooms have been refurbished since last time and are much lighter. Definitely seemed less rustic and more homey. The DVC side is removed and a bit quieter than the main...

Classy, expensive!!, and convenient to Disneyland and California Adventure. Great restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner in hotel or in adjacent Downtown Disney. I'd go to eat and spend a night or two doing Downtown Disney, but this time of year and at Spring Break and Christmas, I'd stay way away from the parks. The Disney suits have started overcrowding...

We were fortunate to secure a discounted rate on our one night stay and was given a newly renovated room. The room was well appointed, the bed was SO comfortable and the bathroom was perfect. Service with a warm and genuine smile..,.,

As Disney Vacation Club members, we stayed here on points in a Studio Villa in the Villas section of the resort. Compared to other DVC properties our room was adequate but nothing special, with the usual Studio Villa amenities: microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, kitchenette, supplies, etc. One queen bed and a pull-out sofa, and a small sitting area. No Murphy...

I am in my mid-70's and my husband is in his early 80's. We booked at this hotel while attending a granddaughter's college graduation. We thought it would be a pleasant get away in the midst of Disney chaos. Wrong! Check-in was awful. Hoards of cars. Lines of people. Our daughter and son-in-law drove us there and stayed for a...

Lets start with location, just in-between California Adventure and Downtown Disney and steps away from the monorail for easy access to Disneyland. The location can't be beat. Walking into California Adventure easily, escaping to your room within minutes, its great. The hotel is undergoing refurbishments and I will stay away from that topic as it is temporary. I will say...

Every since my first stay, the Grand Californian has been my favorite hotel at the Disneyland resort. The pools are super fun for the kids and the hotel offers direct access to both Disney's California Adventure park and Downtown Disney. The cast members are always friendly and willing to help. They have fun scavenger hunts on rides throughout Disneyland and...

We stayed here around Christmas. It was great for the kids to see Santa walking around, the HUGE tree, all the decorations, and of course the best part is that you can walk out of the doors and be in the park. This was especially great for the late nights in California Adventure when exhaustion sets in or for visiting...

This is a great hotel. Many will argue that this much money doesn't correspond to the hotel itself. You're buying location and ease of access to the park. I have a 2.5 year old who really needs a nap at least once during the day and an escape from the park. This place is CLOSE and easy to get in...
