Hotel Amenities

These are the amenities found in a Grand Californian hotel room in September 2012:



The bottles have a flip open top and are labeled "Disney Resorts", previously bottles had a larger screw top and were labeled "Grand Californian" with the hotel logo.

The bottles contain: Sea Marine Revitalizing Shampoo, Sea Salt Hydrating Body Lotion, Refreshing Mouthwash, Sea Marine Collagen Conditioner, Sea Salt Body Wash.

The tube contains Softening Mint Foot Rub, a nice addition

There are also bars of soap for the sink and shower, but I did not note the type.

Another thread has noted that new thermostats are being installed, that automatically shut of the air conditioning.
In some cases while guests are still in the room

I have not encountered one of these thermostats, but a solution was posted:

2 queen is the most common room, available in all view types.

2 queen with daybed is the least common room, standard view only. All 39 daybed rooms are located at the front of the hotel above the main entrance.

Search this thread for the keyword "daybed" for more information.

So if i want to be toward the main entrance of hotel which if I remember correctly is close to the exit to DTD to head to parks I should keep my request for a trundle 2 queen bed? I wonder tho with only being 3 of us if they will end up giving that room to someone with more guests? Thanks

There was at least one post, where a reservation for 5 adults received a daybed room without a specific request.

I received a daybed room without a request, but the hotel was not very busy (and it was ready at 7AM ).

You might want to request a room near the lobby elevators

CL questions

This is our first ever DL visit and we are staying CL premier view.What is the view like? I am curious about sleeping four people. We will need a pull-out or a day bed. Also, has anyone ever had the holiday room decorating done? I was told they will do your room before you even walk in and that it is magical. Is it? Also, is the breakfast just continental? Is there anything hot? We are so excited, but there is so much to plan. Thank you for this help.

World of Color Fastpasses

Do the WoC fastpasses guarantee you a seat? Isn't it a show? Are they still giving out fastpasses to hotel guests? I am obviously confused. Things at DL are very different from WDW.

Hi lucysmom

We have stayed GCH concierge level several times but have only had a pool or monorail garden view, so can't help you there. The only room types at that level we have had were king with a loveseat/sofa bed or 2 queens...as far as WOC FPs, there is no seating like WDW, just designated areas that you have guaranteed access for viewing. We just went early, brought a beach towel and plopped right down for a good viewing spot . I will add that we have only gotten WOC FPs with a dining experience, either Carthay Circle or Wine Country Trattoria.

The breakfast is really just continental, I guess...but really delicious, IMO...there will be something hot as an appetizer from 5-7 PM.

We've never done a holiday in-room celebration, but have done a birthday one. The room was decorated for my family before they arrived and it was very special.

If you NEED a daybed, none exist with premier view
There are daybed rooms close the the concierge lounge, but unfortunately there is no guarantee you will get one.

Hotel guests are not getting any special treatment for WOC, since it is quite easy to get the passes. You should consider eating at Carthay Circle to get a Preferred Dining WOC fastpass

Read this 76 page thread about WOC...
World of Color Superthread
You only need to read the recently updated first post, and the last page or 2

Wow! Things are so different from WDW. There are no seats for W of C? You just sit on the ground? I guess we will have to skip it. My DH cnnot sit on the ground due to leg condition. Is there handicapped seating for guests with disabilities? If so maybe we can do that. I am overwhelmed with how to organize this trip. I can do WDW blindfolded, but DL is all new to me. We are excited about going for the holiday decorations. Thanks for helping me.

You're right, it's very different. We are long time WDW vets as well...it took a visit or 2 to California for me to really appreciate it...and now I prefer it to WDW.

And actually the sitting for WOC is just while you wait...then you get to STAND

We just had lunch @ Carthay Circle today & got the fastpasses for WOC (did not ask for them but came with the meal) but where is the special viewing area? We were not planning on seeing the show tonight but if the view is better than the front by the railing then we shall go back tonight just for the show!
