Time to go back to the West Coast in our continuing planDisney Pocket Guide series, and this week we are here to share all you need to know about Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.

If location to Disney California Adventure park is important to you, as well as premium accommodations and phenomenal dining experiences, this is the resort you are looking to book for your next Disneyland Resort vacation.

Since we mentioned it, let’s start with the delectable dining guests can experience at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. For award-winning wines and seasonal creations, be sure to make your reservations at Napa Rose. This signature dining experience offers guests upscale California fare at dinner. Napa Rose is also the home of the Disney Princess Breakfast Adventures where your family will enjoy a three-course breakfast with enchanting encounters with some Disney Princesses. Advanced dining reservations are highly recommended for both of these dining experiences.

Guests can also get a chance to greet some of their favorite Disney Characters while dining at Storytellers Cafe for breakfast. The menu at Storytellers Cafe is American buffet/family style and is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And if outdoor dining is more your speed, you will enjoy dining at the GCH Craftsman Bar & Grill, located near Fountain Pool. Mobile Ordering is also available here at the grill.

Along with incredible dining offerings, this resort also has fantastic room selections. From standard rooms to three-bedroom suites, the rooms here can accommodate a wide variety of party sizes. Plus, look for hints of your favorite Disney characters in the decor.  You just might spot Chip & Dale!

Recreation offerings here include everything from pools (there are three) to invigorating fitness classes! However, if you have relaxation on the mind, don’t miss the opportunity to schedule some time at Tenaya Stone Spa. Guests will feel like they are a world away while enjoying signature services such as massages, herbal body treatments, skin care and so much more!
