    This hotel is attached to California Adventure, which comes in very handy after a long day at the park. The hotel has a lovely woodlands theme and during my stay it was transformed overnight with Christmas decorations and a gingerbread house display. It was wonderful! I love staying at this hotel. It is a bit expensive but I think the perk of being so close to the theme parks and Downtown Disney make it worth the extra money.

    Excellent service!

    This is our 3rd time staying here since August. Service is impeccable from character dining in the hotel, bar & room service- everything on point. This time we stayed in the concierge level and it was worth event penny. We will return next month!

    The first thing that you experience is the beautiful lobby - craftsman style decor with a fireplace. In typical Disney style the check in was smooth - a greeter comes up to you as you walk up so you feel engaged. The room was spacious with a balcony. Easy access to the Disneyland Hotel where my conference was thru Downtown Disney - you just need to go thru rigorous security every time which was ok. Tip - don’t bring bags with a lot of pockets and a lot of stuff! It was the holidays so there was a huge Christmas tree in the lobby and a ginger bread house. Definitely recommended.

    Wonderful Hotel

    This is my first stay at this particular Disney Hotel and the second for my family. The hotel is conveniently located closer to Disneyland Magic Kingdom entry than the other onsite hotels, and also has direct entry access to California Adventure Park. Our holiday started with a bit of a challenge when the hotel staff were unable to find our pre-ordered park tickets. This delayed our first day entry for over an hour. Once sorted, we had a great time exploring the hotel, the halloween specific decorations, pool area and restaurants. Our room was modern, clean and very well-kept by hotel staff. Overall, absolutely wonderful holiday experience.

    Recently stayed here for a 4-night Disney vacation. The Grand Californian has a separate side entrance for California Adventure Park. This is a huge advantage especially on the days when the extra magic hour (7-8 AM) is at California Adventure. We were able to ride the majority of the premium rides in California Adventure Park each day during the extra magic hour. The separate side entrance allows you to avoid the crowds at the main gate which can otherwise eat into your magic hour time. The hotel itself is fantastic. The beds in the rooms are amazingly comfortable. Rooms are super clean. Nice to be able to easily walk back to your hotel after a long day at the parks.
