We were there over Memorial Day weekend. In the afternoon, the pool was packed. The sun was shining but the wind was a little brisk in the shade. We've noticed that the pool is not busy early morning and starts to fill up later in the day. Depends on what you are use to weather wise, last Sunday was partly overcast but there were people in the pool. When are you going?

I am starting a collection of room views on the thread. If you have a room view you would like to share, please post up a pic along with the room number, the date, and the type of view under which the room is classified. My goal is to have a collection of room views so people can see if they like the view in that part of the hotel. This is difficult to do with just satellite and areal photographs. I will be re-posting this post later on so people who skipped over it will have a chance to see it.


THESE are what we have so far

THIS IS A REPOST FROM POST #1766

Here are three from Room 6504, DVC Studio. I know you have some already, but I thought I'd post them anyway.

I was under the assumption that the DVC villas weren't all scattered around the hotel and I just trying to ballpark what section I'll be in or near.

You are correct, all the villas are all in one wing.
Floor by floor map of the villas
On the North side of the villas (top of map) are the pools.
On the South side is Paradise Pier (and World of Color).
On the East side is the Redwood Trail.

Thank you very much for your efforts and I appreciate it. I'm hoping to get near the pools, but if I don't, it wont affect my vacation. A beautiful hotel and my whole family is excited.

we are checking in on Sunday, and I will post a downtown disney view. Most of the pictures here are from people who are taking from a DVC view, which I think doesn't really help the majority of people who are thinking of staying at the Grand Californian. I am just a regular person, who is paying for a downtown disney view in a regular GC hotel room, so for anyone who is looking for that, stay tuned!

Lisa, did you see the DTD view I posted way back when. It was excellent.

Jack, I think I did. Was it over the World of Disney? I asked for a room over the East wing (near the Napa Rose Elevator)--so that we could have a better chance of seeing some fireworks. I haven't had the best luck with requests at the Disneyland Hotel (we usually request Dreams Tower with a Downtown Disney view, but don't usually get it), so I don't know if the same will happen at the Grand Californian this time. At least we are paying for a Downtown Disney view--so I think they at least have to grant us that.

I will update eveyone when we get home.

Good luck with your room request

Checking in early seems to help, and make it clear to the registration cast member that the view is very important to you. They will sometimes try to give you a room this is already available, rather than waiting for a better view that needs to be cleaned.

Remember to use the stairs when going to Disneyland
