If casual luxury is what you look for in a resort, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is the place for you. This stunning Craftsman-style hotel is the home of the Disneyland Resort’s premier accommodations. Wonderful service, beautiful rooms, gorgeous public spaces and convenient access to the Disney parks all make Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa special.
The lobby of the hotel will take your breath away…
You will feel as though you have been transported to a stunning respite in Northern California and at certain times during the day, Guests are treated to live music in the lobby.
The seating near the huge fireplace is a wonderful spot to relax before or after a day of touring the Disneyland parks.
The newly refurbished pools are extremely inviting. Comfortable, cushioned lounge chairs entice you to linger by the pool.
There is even a fun water slide that impresses kids and adults.
The newly redecorated cabanas are a wonderful spot to rest in your own private paradise. Cozy furniture, tv, fridge, and ceiling fan make then the perfect place to spend the day. The shade is often very welcome on a sunny Southern California day as well.
Think about renting a cabana on your arrival day – you then have space to relax and enjoy the pool area even if you are too early to check into your room.
Disney has done a beautiful job refurbishing Guest Rooms at Disney’s Grand Californian Resort & Spa. They have a fresh look – with a lot more light and wonderful amenities.
You will no longer have to fight with your family for who gets the electric plug for your devices… Disney has thought of everything and has increased electric and usb plugs.
The room is so pretty and comfortable. I want to get right into that bed!
There are even some surprises if you look closely around the room. Hi Chip!
The beds are on higher risers and you can place your suitcases underneath the beds, very similar to what Disney offers on their cruise ships. This is a great space-saver.
The couch is a nice spot to hang out with the family during the day, but it has a secret…
It easily folds down into a super-cute single bed. I love the garden theme.
A small but functional desk space with more plugs!
This counter holds a Keurig coffee maker and the mini fridge is below.
The bathroom is spacious with a modern double sink located outside of the toilet/shower area. This is a great design that allows several people to get ready for the day (or bed) at once.
The new trend is to refurbish the hotel bathrooms to have only large showers and no tubs. The space is beautiful and has modern shower heads and rain showers. If you would like a tub, please make a request because the majority of the resort rooms with have these showers. House Keeping will be able to bring a tub insert that would work for bathing small children if you get a shower-only room and it isn’t working for you.
This gorgeous hotel is the perfect place to stay while visiting the Disneyland Resort. In addition to the beautiful look and feel of the resort, there are benefits to staying here.
If you are looking for fine dining, the amazing Napa Rose is located right in the hotel (if you don’t have a reservation for the dining room, you can get the same delicious menu in the lounge). Character dining is found at Storytellers Cafe and casual Quick Service dining is available at Whitewater Snacks.
There is a full-service Mandara Spa inside the hotel which is a great place to unwind.
Last, but not least, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is the only resort located *inside* a Disney Park – Disney’s California Adventure park. Obviously, it is very convenient to walk to the parks and there is even a special entrance for Guests from the Grand Californian to Disney’s California Adventure park.
Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is a very special property and any stay here is bound to be a great one. What is your favorite Disney resort?
