Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa

1600 S. Disneyland Dr., Anaheim, California, 92802, USA

The most opulent of Disneyland's three hotels, the Craftsman-style Grand Californian offers views of Disney California Adventure and Downtown Disney. 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. Restaurants include the Napa Rose dining room and Storytellers Cafe, where Disney characters entertain children at breakfast. There are three pools including one just for kids, plus there's a child activity center so parents can have time to themselves. Room-and-ticket packages are available, and guests can enter a park an hour earlier than everyone else (schedule varies between the two parks). The Mandara spa has a couple's suite with Balinese-inspired art and textiles.
