And, of course, there’s Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, located in Disneyland Resort. This hotel may not be as popular a choice as the Disneyland Hotel for folks planning trips, but its proximity to Downtown Disney and Disney California Adventure make it a sleeper hit — so we’re taking you on a full room tour!
Disneyland Resort has three hotels that offer incredible amenities and locations to the parks — but when we say they come at a COST, we mean it.
Both Disney World and Disneyland hotels are typically a little more (okay, some are a LOT more) expensive than your average hotel, but you’re paying to stay close to Disney Parks and for other amenities and perks like Early Theme Park Entry. If you prefer to stay close to the parks, Disney is now offering a hotel deal for Disneyland hotel guests — but not everyone qualifies!
If you’ve been thinking about a Disneyland trip in the near future, now might be the moment to put your thoughts into action.
Whether this is a trip you’ve been planning for a while or a surprise gift for this holiday season, we think we just found the perfect excuse to start planning. You can often find savings for your stay at Disneyland Resort hotels, and we just saw three NEW ones that are available for trips in early 2022! [Read more…]
For some time now, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa has been without the spa part.
The Mandara Spa inside the Grand Californian closed in July of 2019, and since then Disney announced their plans to replace it with the Tenaya Stone Spa. The opening of Tenaya was delayed but it’s now scheduled to open on September 16th. Today we were invited to attend an event to get a first look at this new spa space, and you can come along to check it out!
Thinking of visiting Disneyland soon? There’s a lot to see while you’re there.
You might be able to spot some NEW Marvel characters at Avengers Campus, pick up an adorable new Mummy Mickey Mouse Halloween Popcorn bucket, or check out some of the amazing Halloween treats that are available. A trip to Disneyland can get pretty pricey though. Two special deals that could help you save BIG on your trip are ending soon, so you’ll want to take advantage of them before they’re gone!
Greetings from the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa!
Nearly every month Craftsman Grill releases a new hot dog, like the Wild Dog, which we’ve delighted to see has stuck around into 202o. We’re also happy to note that it can be found at Craftsman Bar, too. Now, we’re back to try the January hot dog of the month. And veggie lovers get ready, this one’s for you!

White Water Snacks in Disneyland’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa
was recently renovated (see our tour of the refreshed space here!), and we’ve already found some great treats in the quick service spot’s pastry case — including a sweet little Mickey Ears Cupcake for Get Your Ears On! And right now there’s a St. Patrick’s Day Cupcake that’s definitely got the luck of the Irish!
So many things going on here, and they’re all festive and fun! [Read more…]
We’re back with another bite of the Get Your Ears On celebration at Disneyland Resort! And this sweet treat comes from the newly reopened Whitewater Snacks in Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa!
Our Disneyland correspondent Heather (hiya, @DiningInDisney!!) visited this great quick service spot yesterday, where she spotted this fun treat! Don’t worry — we’ll have a full look at the newly opened Whitewater Snacks for you soon! But the Mickey Ears Cupcake is so festive and colorful — we had to review this one for ya first!
Just a few weeks ago, we shared that Tangaroa Terrace at the Disneyland Hotel would be closing for refurbishment.
And now, Disney is revealing what’s to come as a result of the work! Look for the Terrace to reopen in early 2019 as the Tangaroa Terrace Bar & Grill!
A new outdoor bar and an updated patio will provide spots for guests to enjoy island cocktails and Asian-inspired cuisine. Inside there will be new details including light fixtures made of colorful fishing floats and netting, a tropical mural, and bamboo accents. But, don’t worry, the Tiki-inspired design will still be present in the renovated space.
And a new bar and patio aren’t all the changes! Guests will be able to enjoy Dole Whip throughout the day and coffee drinks in the morning from a dedicated service window. This will be great in the morning for the energy to tackle the parks, and of course to enjoy a Dole Whip while we’re at the pool! [Read more…]
