At Disney's Grand Californian Hotel, you're paying for location.

You're not simply paying for the hotel's ultra-convenient location within the Disneyland Resort, overlooking Disney California Adventure and the shops of Downtown Disney. You're also paying for the opportunity to experience the location of California, by staying in a truly grand example of Southern California architecture that challenges the Beach-Boys-and-Hollywood stereotype of the state too common among those who've never lived here.

Winner of the 2011 Theme Park Insider Award for the world's best theme park hotel, Disney's Grand Californian Hotel is inspired by the Greene and Greene Arts and Crafts architecture of Pasadena.

This might be the most conveniently located Disney theme park hotel in the United States, too - the only one to offer an entrance from the hotel's grounds directly into a park. (Even at the Magic Kingdom's hotels in Florida, you have to ride the monorail to get the park.) The Grand Californian's location within the Disneyland Resort allow easy breaks within your visit to Disneyland or Disney California Adventure, and the shops and restaurants of Downtown Disney are closer than your car, as well.



Great hotel. It has great theming, a decent pool, and it's proximity to california adventure is a huge plus
