Yup, location sums it up. We will never stay anywhere else. Don't try to talk me out of it. Walk out of room, stop for breakfast, walk in to park, walk back in to the hotel, sleep. Repeat. I'm sure we'll change our minds once our child gets older but until then, location, location, location.

OMG, we absolutely love this place! If it wasn't costing me an arm and a leg, we would stay here forever!  I might be an adult, but "I magically turn into a teenager whenever I come here!" There's not much I didn't cover about this magnificent hotel that I haven't covered in my previous review. We're here for the week and we will make daily trips from here.  The lobby is huge and just breathtaking for any first time guests. The check in people greet you as you enter the lobby and guide you through the check-in process.  There is a huge fireplace where stories are told to the younger guests while the grown ups can mingle in the various stores. Your also connected to Downtown Disney with the many stores and restaurants to satisfy any appetites.  And of course your just walking distance to both theme parks. The rooms are gorgeous and everything about your room make you feel right at home.  What I like is that while at the park, you can buy gifts and have them delivered right to your resort!  "How cool is that!"  Another advantage is that this hotel is next to the California Adventure Theme Park and there is a special hotel gate that connects directly into the park.  "Talk about not waiting in long lines!" The restaurants on site are expensive but worth the price in my opinion and offer breakfast character buffets in the morning @ $32.00 per person. In conclusion, this hotel is everything you could imagine in a fine hotel and the staff do go out of there way to accommodate you in everyway possible.

Thinking we may have stayed in a room that has gone through some renovations already. At least from looking at the other guest pictures. Our room consisted of two queens and a daybed. Bedding was not dated in anyway. Fresh, clean, white very comfortable bedding. Double vanity with plenty of space for myself and two teenage daughters to stand and move around in. This area is separate from the toilet/shower area as well as the sleeping area. Shower was a very nice dual head shower with glass doors. No shower curtain. No bathtub. No fan either which was odd. But I had read that in a previous guest's comments. So it didn't surprise me. Nice closet and dresser for clothing storage. Small balcony with two chairs and small table. (We weren't in the room enough to really use it but it was nice to know it was there if we wanted it.) There were more than enough outlets! Small fridge, coffee machine and supplies. No microwave though. That would be my only negative. That and no free breakfast. I had purchased food and beverages on Amazon Pantry and had it delivered directly to the hotel. Highly recommend! We were located in a wing that was separate from the main lobby area. Nice because we were away from any extra noise from guests coming and going but it was a little farther to walk. Renovation was being done on the pool area so we weren't able to really even see the pool. But it was the first week of April so I don't know if it would have been warm enough to swim anyway. I would absolutely stay here again! I LOVED the convenience of the entrance from the hotel into California Adventure and also Downtown Disney. It made it easy to run back to the hotel to change, grab a snack or jacket. And the Downtown Disney access to the hotel was open. Even after 2 am. The staff ("cast members") were always very friendly and very helpful. The check-in process was fast and smooth. I was also able to purchase Disneyland tickets at the registration counter! That was wonderful! No long ticket line to stand in. I chose to stay at this location for this trip because my girls were performing in a Dance the Magic parade in Disneyland so we were offered discounted rates. It was still somewhat more than what I would have paid at a Good Neighbor hotel but the location and convenience were SO worth it. The small attention to little details make it a magical experience.

This Disney trip was multi-generational . . . three generations from 6 months to 60 . . . two young children . . . three adults. Our stay at the Grand Californian made a (very) busy week at the parks totally magical. The location was the key. It offered us easy access to the parks - early or late as needed with the baby. It gave us a quick return to the room, but also a quick return to the Disney fun. We enjoyed the hotel (even as construction continued). I would highly recommend the hotel if you are travelling with an infant or need to save some of your steps for walking around in the parks all day. The reduced stars in my review are due to the aging room interiors . . . but then that's what the remodel is all about!

This is a great hotel, with nice rooms, good service and a quiet and friendly ambiance. However, in those respects, it is just like any other hotel, only are three to four times the cost. As such, the only real reason to stay here is the Grand's dedicated entrance to the California Adventure Park. We arrived at 7:50, and were disappointed to discover that the line was already stretching down one side of the building and around the corner. However, once it started moving, we got in very quickly - less than ten minutes - and grabbed our early rides with no fuss. All of which was much easier than our experience the next morning, when we had to use the main gates. Despite it being 7am, the lines were huge, and it took nearly 20 minutes to get through, by which time the lines for things like Jedi Training and Hyperspace were already huge. Perhaps the main park is just more popular? But I'd like to think the entrance through the GC bought us a few, crucial additional minutes. Re the pool situation. Yes, the Grand's pools are closed. However, the pools at Paradise Pier and Hotel Disney are both available. A little bus runs between them at short intervals, but you can walk in about 3 minutes to Paradise Pier (it is directly across the road - I think it took longer to walk from my door to the door), and about 5 to 10 to Disney (two blocks). There is a bathrobe in your room that you can wear to keep warm on the brief walk. Both pools have slides and are heated. The Disney Resort pools are particularly impressive. Neither area was overly crowded. Really, this is not a big deal. We ate lunch at Storyteller's Café. It was okay, although not cheap. The 'bread' basket features delicious little scone-like things, in addition to the ubiquitous white bread - a nice extra, and yummy. The kids meal was great. Otherwise, having paid so much for the room, we tried to save money on food. We bought our own bread and cereal for breakfast. There is a little fridge in the room, and milk can be purchased from the CVS and Walgreens that are a short walk away. Unfortunately, there was no microwave. The staff were really, really lovely. Garrett at the front desk was particularly friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the conclusion of my trip was somewhat tainted by one staff-member, who accused me of having damaged her car with the door of my own. I had just put my young daughter in the back seat, when she charged around the vehicle, and accused me of opening the door with great force, slamming it into the side of her car. I had absolutely no recollection of either the "very loud bang" or opening the door wide, and was mortified that I could have done such a thing, but as I was struggling with a very upset 5 year old, it was within the realms of possibility that I had accidentally opened the door too wide (or indeed that she had kicked it). I would have absolutely paid for any damage. However, despite this staff member looking very closely at her car door (wiping away some dirt), and me aligning the door of mine to her vehicle to find where any damage could be, she couldn't find any mark at all. I don't mind that she was concerned, or checking - really, I understand. But her manner was very aggressive and intimidating - and I am not easily intimidated. Even when she didn't find damage, she huffily stormed off, insisting that she heard the bang and that I was lucky I hadn't damaged her car! I suppose I was (assuming I had opened the door too far), but all in all, it was disturbing, and soured my trip to Disneyland. But it also made me wonder about what the staff at this place go through during the day. They are clearly instructed to appear happy at all times and be obsequiously nice to guests. Perhaps this lady had just had eight to ten hours of having to be kind, polite and smiley to everyone, and when confronted by possible damage to her car, she just didn't have it in her to be nice or polite anymore? Now, that, I can understand.
