    I've never had to deal with this before but my db smokes and he will be staying with us at the GCH so I thought I would ask about this so I can let him know what to expect ahead of time.

    Here's a link:

    https://disneyland.disney.go.com/guest-services/smoking/


    In DTD, I believe the only prohibition is inside buildings and eating areas (including dining patios).


    I know that there is construction and refurbs going on, so I'd have DB ask at the Grand's reception desk to verify the smoking area is where the map says it is. Same thing for DTD and in the parks.

    Thank you for the link! It was particularly helpful as it noted that MHP is completely non-smoking--no designated areas in DL at all during the party.

    The location shown on the Disneyland site might be the "official" smoking area for GCH (orange circle), but guests usually smoke at the outside fireplace (red circle). The Napa Rose Lounge has an outside patio for smoking (blue circle, access only from inside the lounge). The lounge patio is intended for cigars, but cigarettes are smoked there. The VGC barbecue area (yellow circle) is often used for smoking (BBQ is seldom used).

    Guests often smoke on balconies, although against the rules.

    I can confirm the orange circle was active October 2017. Our two rooms on the 4th floor were right above there and the smoke smell was awful!

    Did you change rooms? I love the balconies at the GCH and it would put a damper on my trip if I couldn’t utilize them due to smoke!

    MHP is indeed completely non-smoking -- this is printed on the tickets and is stated on the DLR website on the MHP page. There is a designated smoking area for the parties in the esplanade. I've never seen it, but have heard from other guests who've used it, so ask CMs about the specific location. I have seen guests who light up in DL during MHP be approached by CMs who ask them to put out the cigarette and go to the esplanade to continue smoking.

    It was during GayDays and two adjoining rooms were not available for us to switch to.

    While the smoke smell wasn't inviting. We had a FANTASTIC time!
    And loved the GCH, as we always do.

    The last couple times we stayed at the GCH they were no longer allowing smoking at the outside fireplace. I'll have to ask him exactly where he could go, but it might have changed.
