Posted on November 15, 2022

Ideally set next to Disney's California Adventure Park and Downtown Disney, your time at the "Happiest Place on Earth" never needs to end when staying at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.

Craftsmanship and grandeur are hallmarks of this elegant Disney Resort, from the stylish and cozy rooms to the graceful architecture of the common areas.

Swimming pools, dining areas, games, and entertainment surround you as you make the most of your accommodations, which can be a cozy studio or a spacious villa meant for the entire family. Yet signs of the House of Mouse sneak into the entire resort, from Mickey Ears tucked into the carpet patterns to themed murals above the headboards in the bedrooms.

This Disney timeshare resort contains all the amenities you could hope for out of a Disney experience. Its close proximity to Downtown Disney, Disney's California Adventure and legendary Disneyland means you will have exactly the access you want to spend quality family time at the parks. Yet on-site, there is still lots to see and enjoy.

For kids, nothing beats a grand afternoon at the three fun pools called Fountain, Redwood, and Mariposa, which together make up a water-park-like experience with woodsy backdrops, private cabanas, and plenty of fun. Special events are held throughout the year and can be seen at the front desk. These activities are especially popular with families looking to fill some free time on an otherwise busy schedule.

At the Eureka Fitness Center, guests can get in a full workout at one of the state-of-the-art machines, or join in a yoga session, fitness classes, meditation sessions, and aerobics, all of which are great ways to relax and spruce up the muscles before a full day in the park.

If those activities do not relax enough, the Tenaya Stone Spa at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is a full-service Spa designed to rejuvenate resort guests' minds, bodies, and spirits. The experience immerses the visitor in California's natural beauty, and it offers a variety of massage, salons, and other treatments designed to pamper and inspire.

The dining options are also top-notch, as you might expect from a Disney resort. These can be anything from a quick meal at the poolside cafe to a relaxing sit-down experience with fine wines and delightful storytelling. And remember to book your Disney Princess breakfast at the luxurious Napa Rose for a wonderful time with your favorite princesses.
