Loved the Club Level!

Mehmoui (Roodepoort, South Africa) on Feb 13, 2024

Wow! We are so glad we booked our stay at the Grand Californian. We stayed on the club level with our teens. It was very a convenient location, allowing us to go back and forth between the park and the hotel throughout the day. Since our kids were more independent, they were able to go back to the hotel, get food, and swim as they wanted.

Amplifies the Disney experience – in every way

Tedstravelblogs (Vancouver, Canada) on Jan 25, 2024

This is Disney’s premium lodgings at Disneyland and a measurable improvement over any of the nearby but out-of-park lodgings that I have experienced. Like the Disneyland Parks, parts of it are starting to show their age but it comfortably fulfilled the needs of our expended family of nine including five children. The good: It’s hard not to be wowed by the rustic grandeur of the grand hall – ala Yosemite’s Ahwahnee on steroids. Luggage handling and check-in were efficient and polite. Our adjoining Downtown Disney View rooms – 3161/3163/3165 – were clean, comfortable, reasonably roomy, well appointed and tastefully decorated. The bedding arrangements differed across the rooms as our needs dictated but they worked well for accommodating five, three and one respectively. Everything expected of 5-stars was there and it all worked as expected. The bathrooms were similarly well appointed, were also well lit and supplied with quality toiletries. All rooms opened to a small balcony overlooking Downtown Disney which spectacle – noise included – really comes to life at night. A plus (considerable) cost breakfast buffet is offered at the hotel’s Storytellers Cafe which features a parade of Disney characters (inc. plenty of photo ops) and is a must-do for the kids – unless you plan an early start in the parks. The not so good: Disney evidently aspires to the best here but there are a few flaws, most of which could be very easily remedied. As our family was coming for different corners of the world for this gathering, we planned this trip well ahead, but the hotel rooms were not available for booking until a few months out and even then we booked through an agency because the Disney website still showed no availability. There was a huge array of pillows on the beds in our rooms but almost all of then were of the speed-bump variety: hard and unyielding. It took some time to secure pillows that we could actually sleep on. Whilst the air-conditioning worked well, it was accompanied by a considerable amount of fan noise which, when combined with the evening hubbub from Downtown Disney, necessitated sleeping with earplugs. Finally: the food at the hotel’s Storytellers Café (we had breakfast and dinner) definitely fell short of a five-star standard. Yes, it was plentiful and wholesome, but variety and taste were definitely MIA. Mind you, that observation could be applied across the entirety of the Disney operations at Anaheim: it may be a feast for the other senses but taste is left out in the cold. The upshot: we’d still return and we’d still stay at this hotel because it was a wonderful experience for all of my children and grandchildren.
