To be honest I just love balconies because I go out there at night with my cocoa and write down my memories from the day while DH watches ESPN and the kiddos fall asleep. Fireworks are a bonus but not necessary to my peace. I mean heck, I'm at Disney. And this time DISNEYLAND. I'm so stinking excited I finally convinced the rest of my clan to try out the west coast park. I can't wait to walk where Walt walked.
The courtyard view rooms you highlighted also overlook the monorail tracks that run through the resort. We stayed in one a few years ago, my kids loved watching the monorail zoom by....

Good to know. That might actually get my DS excited. He's pre-teen and very little get's him excited.

Just got back from our first stay at GCH last week. We're sold! DLH is great but GCH will be our hotel from now on

We stayed in 5246 with a park view...right next to Goofy's Flight School:

Taking our first trip to DLR and staying at GCV. Are there wheelchairs that hotel guests can borrow for their stay like at WDW resorts or should we bring one from home? Thanks.

Not only can you borrow a wheelchair ( I would ask the CM's at the ressie center to put in a request before you ge to GCV. ) you can ask for a "golf cart escort" from anywhere at any of the Disney Hotel properties. We requested that for my FIL going from Steakhouse 55 (the chocolate cake IS TO DIE FOR!!! ) back to GCV, it was awesome.

Here is the "The Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Owners & Lovers Group - 2.0" thread on the Dis CLICKY

Good luck and have a great time here in California!

Thanks so much for the info! I am going to call now to request a wheelchair. It will be much easier to travel without it but she really needs it if she has to walk for more than 10 minutes. This our first trip to DLR and we are very excited!

Hi everyone,

I'm going to be a first time GVC visitor from the UK. I'm a DVC member and managed to get a two bedroom at 7 months out for first week in October. Does anyone know if the 2 bedrooms have a theme park view?

They CAN, but you'd need to request it. And remember - a request is simply a request. I think Nonsuch has a list of rooms that have a theme park view for DVC. He may be along here, or you can ask over on the DVC forums. If you want to see the theme park, you will want a higher floor. We simply asked for a "high floor, Paradise Pier view" and got that. Make sure if you do want a theme park view you are specific; my in-laws' room looked at the challenge trail which WAS a theme park view, but not of Paradise Pier if that matters to you. Their view was peaceful and beautiful too. Have a wonderful time!!

Many 2-bedroom villas have great park views, some of the best park views at DLR
Links to floorplans are in my signature.

Have your booked a lock-off or dedicated 2-bedroom villa?

Please visit The Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Owners & Lovers Group - 2.0 for more information

We are headed to The Grand in Oct staying in The Villa's. We are BEYOND excited.

I've managed to get through about the 1st 100 pages of this thread, but figured I'd go ahead and subscribe so I don't miss any new updates. Especially since I'm still back in 2010!

It's a dedicated 2 bedroom. I'll have a look at the thread, thanks!

I think the answer to my question is no, but I figure I should ask to be clear. The bunk rooms are only offered with one queen correct? There are no 2 queen/bunk rooms?

Also, I meant to add....do all of the double queens have sofa beds? I read this on page one of this thread, but I am not sure.
