Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa in Anaheim is a luxury resort displaying marvelous American Craftsman architecture. This style of design flourished during the late 1800s and early 1900s, and it's both elegant and rustic. There are more than 1,000 rooms at this tranquil hotel, which offers pool, courtyard and theme park views. The Grand Californian offers a water-lover's paradise, with a large swimming pool, a water slide that looks like a redwood tree, two smaller pools, and a pool just for kids. Several ballrooms and meeting spaces, an elaborate spa and fitness facility, and a gift shop round out the full hotel experience. Guests won't be short on dining options, with two lounges, a snack bar, the family-oriented Storyteller's Cafe, and the first-class restaurant Napa Rose all on-site.

Neighborhood
The Grand Californian looks out on Disneyland and is right next to Disney California Adventure. Disneyland, which opened in 1955, is packed with both cutting-edge and traditional rides and shows, and Disney California Adventure recreates scenes of California's yesteryears. For instance, a section of the park purposely resembles 1920s Los Angeles. Between these two parks is Downtown Disney, a lavish shopping and dining district with a huge range of activities on offer.
Hints and tips
Guests of the hotel have their own access for entering and exiting Disney California Adventure, making it easy to slip away from the park for a swim or a nap.
During check-in, ask the desk clerk if you can get a complimentary room upgrade - there are occasional openings and it's worth inquiring about.

Good family trip

Pool area was closed for renovation and character breakfast was relocated. Hope to be back soon with everything back to normal.

Great Family Trip!

Great Hotel! Being so close to the park was amazing especially at night when we were done in the park and tired. Beds were very comfortable. All the staff at the Hotel was friendly and helpful.

Fun Family Vacation

Our Disney vacation was very fun and staying at this first class hotel made was worth the extra money. We had early access to the park and conveniently located next to Downtown Disney and both parks. Would definitely recommend to a friend! Fridge in the room and view of fireworks and World of Color show from hotel.

What lovely hotel, and a great view of the park. We love everything about this hotel, it is so close to everything we need to do. The only thing is that the parking is off site, across the street.

Best Disney Hotel ever

We have been staying on the Disney property for the past 25 years with this being the first time that we have used the Grand California Hotel. Our stay was wonderful. The hotel was clean and comfortable. We had a park view and I was concerned about park noise in the room. It was completely silent. We had 2 teenagers with us and required more towel. Within minutes of the request at 9:00 pm, the towels arrived at our room. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. So impressed with our experience. :-)

Great for grown ups and kids

Hotel staff was exceptional. That made all the difference. There will always be imperfections in your travel but the Disney staff were masters of going above and beyond at making things right. I am already planning my return trip.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

Make sure to take advantage of the magic hour access to the theme parks. That is one of the best perks of staying at the Disney hotels.
