Editor’s Review of Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa

One of three official Disneyland resorts in Anaheim, California set inside the park (along with Disneyland Hotel and Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel), the Grand Californian Hotel boasts an exclusive park entrance to Disney's California Adventure, meals with Disney characters and sweeping views of Disneyland. Staying at the Grand Californian is the most luxurious option for families who want to sleep on Disneyland park property. The hotel's stylish, rustic California lodge theme and upscale spa set it apart from the other in-park Disneyland resorts, as does the price -- rates are nearly double those of the other two Disneyland hotels. Room charges do not include access to Disneyland, but hotel and ticket packages are available for all three ... more Disney resorts.
