at Disneyland

The Grand Californian is supposed to be the sister to Disney World's Grand Floridian, and indeed, the rates are really up there. However the California sister is smaller, with a more casual feel. You do get all of the wonderful amenities like bathrobes, turndown service and first class service. But the best advantage is the location, with private entrances to both Downtown Disney and the California Adventure Park. There are several views available: 1) looking over to the Disneyland Hotel / Paradise Pier. 2) Courtyard view. 3) Downtown Disney / Disneyland (many of these reportedly offer fireworks views. - 4) California Adventure views, either overlooking Grizzly Peak or the Paradise Pier area.
