Overview

Ideal location next to Disneyland for vacationing families
Rooms are pricey

As expected, kids are spellbound by the Disney brand enchantments, but adults are also delighted to stay in Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa because of its convenience. The resort's design draws on California's natural scenery – the redwood forests, the mountains, the rugged coast – but forgets none of the high-end musts of modern hotels. The rooms (that come in many configurations) can easily fit families, and the hotel provides additional sleeping bags for kids. The themed pools are a great way to enjoy the warm California weather as a clan, while weary parents can kick back in the Mandara Spa or enjoy a glass of wine at Napa Rose after a long day of fun. Families also enjoy the private entrance to certain areas of Disneyland, like Disney's California Adventure park and Downtown Disney District. The room rates, on the other hand, can take their toll on your vacation fun, though members of the Disney Vacation Club can receive discounts on both park admission and hotel rates.

Disneyland's choicest digs, done in traditional Craftsman style. In addition to kid- and adult-friendly fare, California Adventure Park is just a turnstile away. Everybody wins.

They don't push the Disney brand too heavily; some artwork and a plush Mickey Mouse toy are some of the subtle branding you'll find in the Arts-and-Crafts-style wood-panel rooms.

The hotel also provides sleeping bags (rather than rollaways) for kids, so that a standard-size room will sleep the whole brood.
