Dream Disney Resort

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Black. Enjoy the ride as we share our Dream Disney Resort.

My name is Rosanne and I am a Walt Disney World addict.

I have spent a LOT of time in Florida at the Place Where Magic Lives. We vacationed there every year since I can remember and (between my two internships) I lived minutes from the Walt Disney World Resort for over a year. I am lucky to say that I've experienced most Walt Disney World Resort hotels, whether I've stayed there, dined there or visited.

Because I've spent so much time at the Walt Disney World Resort, my dream is to visit and stay at the Disneyland Resort. My dream resort at Disneyland is Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.

The Grand Californian is a gorgeous hotel, with a dramatic lobby and unique offerings. The hotel features amazing woodwork, American Craftsman-style architecture and décor. One very cool feature for the kids? Guest rooms may have bunk beds. My brother and I would've loved that, rather than sharing a bed as kids!

In terms of dining, you would be hard pressed to find a better option than Napa Rose. In terms of fun, the Grand California features three pools, hot tubs and a water slide.

Hands down the best feature of Disney's Grand Californian is the location. Adjacent to Disney's California Adventure Park, the Grand Californian has a private entrance to the park. On select mornings, guests get a one hour early entry into the park. Looking to ride Radiator Springs Racers without a two hour wait? Then the Grand Californian is the hotel for you. At night, Downtown Disney is also in walking distance of the hotel.

I was 13 the last time I visited Disneyland. I cannot wait for my next trip out west and to one day stay at my dream Disney resort, Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa!

Great dream resort, Rosanne! I never even thought of Disneyland - since I've never been there. :) I hope to make it out to the west coast one of these days. The Grand Californian appeals to me much more than the Grand Floridian.

We stayed at the Grand Californian last week and loved it. You can't beat being able to walk to two parks and Downtown Disney. Plus it's gorgeous!

I would love to stay there! It looks absolutely beautiful, and obviously, the location is ideal! :-)

This sounds fantastic!! Thank you for sharing!

Beth Green said...

I totally agree!! I'd LOVE to head back to Cali and visit this resort and spend at least a week taking in Disneyland and California Adventure.

I am definitely dreaming about Disneyland because of that exact same issue! I haven't been in forever and I want to visit so badly!

Rosanne_Mottola said...

I'm jealous Melissa! I can't wait to hear all about your trip!

If you takeaway anything from this particular loop, it's LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! :) Thanks for stopping by Beth!

A week at DLR is definitely a DREAM of mine! I want to go through the place with a fine tooth comb! Thanks for stopping by!
