    Are there any rooms that connect and have bunk beds in at least one of them?

    I have always had a connecting door to the adjacent room, including rooms with a bunk bed. I did visit an HA room which did not have a connecting door, due to the modified floorplan.

    So while connecting rooms which include a bunk bed do exist, the Grand will not guarantee the bed type or that the rooms will connect :worried:

    I'm pretty sure we had a bunk bed room that connected to our friends' room (that one had 2 queens). Was about 5 years ago though, so it's a little hard to remember for certain, but I'm 99% sure.

    I just booked my GC room today. Deluxe View. I asked for connecting rooms, one with bunk beds, and one with two queens. They said that should not be a problem. We are arriving early, though, so we have a better chance of getting it.

    The monorail passes through 2 wings of the hotel and the Brisa Courtyard. Most of the rooms classified as courtyard/garden will have a view of the monorail. The standard view rooms at the front of the hotel in the x1xx wing will have a view of the monorail as it moves away from the hotel. These rooms are close to the elevators off the Grand Hall.

    The x1xx rooms are in the background of this picture on the left:

    Hi everyone,
    My family and I are heading out to CA (from CT) in June. I think our first day at DLR will be June 26th. We are very fortunate, because our dream Disneyland vacation included a stay at the GCH. Well, as it turns out, my husband is doing some work for my brother, and my mom said she wants him to have a vacation while he's out there, and is planning to book us at the GCH while we are there! :cool1: I have the best mom ever! :thumbsup2 Anyway, I have no control over what she books, but I'm expecting her to book standard rooms (not complaining, I'm thrilled with whatever she decides) but I'm wondering if there are any standard rooms that have partial views of the theme parks? Or are there any good views of anything from these rooms? Should I ask for a room that's on a higher floor? Thanks for any help. I grew up in CA, and went to Disneyland all the time when I was there, but have never stayed in the hotels.

    Looking at booking the GC for our next trip, but struggling with the views. We are looking at either a Premium DTD View or a Deluxe Partial View (which the description says overlooks DTD). I was just wondering if anyone had more information about the Deluxe Partial View. Does anyone know what corresponding room numbers go with this type of room and what floors of the hotel this is for?

    Also, any chance anyone has some pics of what the view is like from outside of the Deluxe Partial View into DTD?

    We've done the Premium DTD view before, but with the price difference now I'd like to do the Deluxe Partial View instead, as along as we're not looking at just a wall of tree branches.

    Thanks!

    Everytime we've booked the partial DTD View, we end up in the 400 wing overlooking where the trams drop off and pick up .. facing DL. You can see the fireworks from the rooms.

    We just booked premium view rooms at the GC. Which wing should we request? I really enjoy the GRR and the big Mickey Wheel. Any suggestions?

    When we went to WDW last summer, they were in the process of changing all the toiletries in the hotels. Does anyone know what they are using now at the GCH? Is it the "old" green H20 spa line like before, or something new and different?

    More of less the same, except the Grand Californian logos have been replaced by generic Disney Resorts logos.

    Hotel Amenities from September 2012.

    I don't recall seeing the Foot Rub recently.

    Thanks for the info -- it looks like it's the same old stuff (no complaints there) in the newly designed bottles. Good to know!:)

    I did not see foot cream, tooth brush, mouth wash or a sewing kit in the villas at any time when recently visiting the last 2 months. I will be in there March 30 - April 2 & see if those items will be included. OR is it just for hotel /suite guests?

    The picture I linked was from a hotel room in September 2012. It was a concierge room, but the amenities are likely the same for all rooms. That was the only time foot cream was provided, never before or since.

    Villas have slightly different amenities.

    Toothbrushes seem to be randomly provided, for both hotel rooms and villas.
