If you're planning a 3 or more day stay at Disneyland and want to take full advantage of the early-morning entry, there is no better place that the Grand Californian, especially with its hotel-guest-only private entrance into California Adventure (right next to the Rapids ride). It's also very close to the Disneyland entrance as well. It has the best pool...

i think this has got to be the worst experience ever. We spent the weekend here to celebrate my daughter and sister's birthdays. This is also my parents and sister first time staying at this hotel after me raving about how nice the hotel is! we didn't get our hotel until 4pm which i thought was a bit later than...

If you are travelers to whom this level of resort is a splurge, a rare treat, and you have determined to set aside the disproportionate amount to stay at DGC,then you will enjoy your stay here. It is a very nice hotel with great amenities (when they are open or available). We stated here as a treat for our daughter's...

This was by far a better experience than I expected based on some of the reviews I found. The property is the closest by far to Disneyland, California Adventure, and Downtown Disney. We stayed from Sunday to Thursday, and didn't need to get the car once. We have stayed at nearby neighbor hotels, and I don't think I could go...

We wanted to stay on a Disney Property on our last visit to Disneyland (especially because we've stayed in several hotels outside the park district and felt so exhausted to make it back at the end of the day). With the three options they had (the Disneyland Hotel, Paradise Pier, and Grand Californian), we really weren't sure which one would...

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.
