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.

Love the Grand Californian

I love staying on-site at the Grand Californian. It adds a special sparkle to my trip to Disneyland. I enjoy being close to the park the direct entrance into DCA the elegance of the lobby the Hearthstone bar and the quietness of my room It isn't always in my budget, but when it is, it is a magical place to stay.

Love Disneyland

The hotel is nice, has an excellent location and has fantastic perks, like the early morning park entry. Service is very good, as expected with disney. I got a mid-week discount to stay at the hotel so price was not bad but I don't think I'd pay the full prices to stay here. Pool area is fabulous but the whirlpool is not hot enough. The wireless internet didn't work in our room which was a hugh inconvinence for us. I complained and received 2 complimentary family fastpasses. Other than that, our stay was very nice and we had a blast at the park.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

If interested in a makeover for your little princess... the Elsa & Anna botique did a fabulous fob. Also, the Storyteller Cafe character dining breakfast was excellent!!!

Best family vacation yet!

The Grand California is the only place to stay! It's beautiful, wonderful location, great service and all the amenities a family could need. The only complaint was the wi-fi. We have horrible Internet connection. We loved this hotel and will go back every time!
