Thank you!
I was told $14 for self park and $22 for valet a couple weeks ago. However, I ended up not having to pay for self parking. The attendant took my parking ticket the first day and when I was leaving on last day asked if I was going home. When I said yes, he just waved me through.

It left me thinking the parking attendants don't agree with the GC guests having to pay for parking.

Thanks! What a huge dilemma....

We are taking the Disney Express from LAX on Sunday 5/8 and going back home 5/17. But I got a car 5/11-16, because I have a conference 5/11 and 12, then was going to go to Legoland 5/13, and Universal 5/14. This is because I paid for an additional room for my cousins to join us 5/13-15, and they all have Universal passes and it is too expensive to get them Disney one-day passes so we will just hang out on 5/15.

But then, they are arriving at lunch time on 5/13, so I was going to get the car on 5/9 instead to go to Legoland (they are closed 5/10). But I just figured out that I can't cancel the Disney Express so I guess we will meet up with them later on Friday.

Thank you for your help!

You most likely did pay. You pay with the credit card you have on file. We have never had to pay the parking attendant--he doesn't take the money, it is the front desk who deals with all of that.

Do all GC standard rooms have balconies?
I am trying to figure out whether to book DTD, pool, or park view. It looks like pool & park views are the same cost to upgrade, so I guess I would prefer park view if paying that much.

No, we have stayed there 3 times in a standard room, and have never had a balcony. They always seem to put us in the same view--it is of the front entrance/cars parking lot. No balcony.

We have had both bunkbed rooms and the 2 queen/daybed room configurations. We always request a better view, but have never been granted an upgrade.

While this is true, you only pay if you give them (parking attendant) your room number or room key. Other than that, they have no way of knowing who to charge for parking.

Does anyone know if the lot across from the GCH will be open this year. When we stayed last year the lot was closed all week and we had to park in the structure under the PP hotel.

It was open when we went in March.

Just a post to brag a bit. My daughter has a bookcase she made while working for a craftsman in San Francisco in the Grand lobby. If you are in the lobby and facing the check-in desk, it is the bookcase on the right, behind a pillar. There are bears carved on it. Her initials are carved on the inside. I'm at her house and not using my computer. I'll upload a picture tonight when I get home. We are "visiting" her bookcase on Sunday.

How cool! I'm sure it is fun to see a little piece of her when you visit the Grand.

That is amazing! When did it go in? I took the hotel tour in March and we spent some time talking about the bookcases. Are they the same ones?
