    This is the grown ups hotel that the kids will still love. When you are SICK of Disney and crashing, you walk into a huge craftsman style lodge with a giant fireplace, big cozy sofas, and a tiny seeming TV in a corner with 24/7 retro mickey cartoons for the kids. *sigh* You can walk to either the monorail or to the main entrance of Disneyland, and have a direct entrance (early on some days!) to California Adventure. Eat at the White Water Snacks (mickey waffles at a fraction of the Storytellers Cafe) Also probably the most romantic of the Hotels. Stay here if you have the cash.

    Rate: $290 CAD per night – I got a room only special (See my Tip)

    When: August 23 – 26th 2010, for my honeymoon.

    Room: Basic – the view was the courtyard, yet you could see into downtown disney. The monorail passed below us, and wasn’t very noisy. It was a king bed, with a pull out sofa couch. The bathroom was standard, I liked the little disney details of Bambi on the shower curtin. I also enjoyed the spa soaps.The also do a nightly turn-down, with little disney chocolates that are nice.

    The hotel itself is large and kind of a maze. Make sure you check out the pool, it is a nice break from a Disney Day.

    I loved this hotel. I have always wanted to stay ever since my first adult trip back in ’05. I finally saved up and convienced my new husband and it was totally worth it.

    Yes, there are cheaper hotels around and yes, there are some on the far side that include breakfast, but there is a flip side.

    At the Grand, you are in the magic. It is beautiful and staff is friendly and being able to come back in the afternoon to swim and go out in the evening to world of colour is wonderful. If you are going to do it once it is worth it.

    StoryTellers Cafe is a fun experience, and if you have children is probably something to do… Napa Rose my husband enjoyed, but I didn’t. To me it was way to ‘posh’ and had some out there flavors. I would recommend Napa over StoryTellers Cafe.

    Tip: I strongly suggest calling Disney for a room rate, and then comparing with your travel company. I did and we saved extra as the Flight Center not only beat Disney’s room rate, they did pay 10%.

    BOTTOMLINE: I totally would do this again, properly on my next trip, when my daughter is older.

    Type of Resort: Deluxe (booked through Expedia at $189/night for standard view, upgraded to Theme Park view for $40.00 extra at check-in)

    Rate Paid During Your Stay: $400 – we got a 10% discount from our AAA membership

    Room Sleeps: 4 plus a small child under 3.

    Don’t miss: The bathroom products are all sample sizes that they use in their spa.

    Room Location Suggestion: We stayed in 3317 and 3319 – technically it’s a “city view” but we got a lovely view of the hotel landscaping, and you can see the monorail pass, but it’s not noisy at all.

    The Mouse For Less Tip: They have a AAA discount and an AARP discount – other than that – this place is too expensive.

    Comments: Can’t stress the convenience – I left Mickey’s Toontown at 11:50 and was in my room at 12:10. There is a private entrance into CA which can shave down walking time significantly. We didn’t go back to the room from CA this time around, but last time we did, we got off of a ride (Grizzly River Run) and walked to our room in ONE MINUTE FLAT. No exaggeration.
