DTD view will have have a short walk going toward Disneyland. There are stairs at the end of each wing of the hotel that exit into DTD (this is exit only). The rooms over the World of Disney store have the shortest walk in, but the longest walk returning from Disneyland (although the overall distance in not much different than returning to the VGC).

We will be staying at the Grand for the first time June 22-25. I wanted to know if anyone can help me as far as who to contact for a birthday basket for my son. His birthday is June 24th and I would like to plan ahead and have a Disney birthday basket delivered to the room. I thought I read that they have a list of items and you can call and buy them and arrange it to be delivered but I can't find the thread now. Has anyone done this before? Thanks for any input.

Vacation Planning can help you. This post is from page 114 of this thread.

I might try this is July. What are the details?
  • Phone number?
  • How early can you call (is it days before?)
  • Is there a separate place to pick up your keys if using this?
  • What can't you do over the phone that you can do checking in at the desk?
Or is this what you are asking, too?

I have a question about room type.
We stayed at GCH for the first time in Feb- just DH, DS(3) and I. Our room was a 2Q.

We plan on staying again first weekend of May but this time our 2 older sons, ages 16 & 18will join us. What type of room can we expect for a family of 5? 2Q & daybed like DLH?

That would be the best you can get without going to a suite or going over to the Villas. We tried that for 1 night and it was too crowded for us.

That is a rare room type at the Grand, all are located near the front entrance of the hotel. It might be better to stay at Paradise Pier or Disneyland Hotel, where 2Q & daybed are more common

This is what I am asking. It was posted back in Dec that one could check in that way but nothing since.

So where will 1 of my kids sleep? On the floor?

We're not staying @ DLH- too much construction. PP is too far for us to walk and we have no desire to stay there.

No way man. Not paying $300+/night for one of my kids to sleep on the floor!

I just got of the phone w/ WDTC and she said I could put a request in for a daybed room but there are no guarantees. She also said the daybed rooms are throughout the hotel.
Ugh.

A post earlier in this thread says there are 39 daybed rooms.

Another family was able to get a daybed room by checking in early


Search this thread for "daybed" for more information.
