    DLH or DGC - which one?

    **i am posting here since this forum gets more views**

    If you could stay at either the Disneyland Hotel or Grand California, which one would you chose and why? Based on a standard room, pls!

    I am trying to decide on which one to stay at for our next trip!

    Both hotels are great, if I had a choice I'd probably go with Grand Californian since it has the convenience to the parks and the better views, but Disneyland Hotel is also a great choice.

    Grand Californian. There is a $200/night price difference though in room rates. To me, worth it because you can get back to the hotel much more conveniently, has private entrance to DCA, better views, better amenities, etc.

    I would say the DLH. If its a standard room it will be the same just a different theme. The DLH has more of that Disney magic to it. You can choose form three different styles like the fantasy hotel ,adventure and frontier . I had never stayed at the other one but I had seen the rooms they are nice but I would say go with DLH. PLUS GOOFY KITCHEN IS THERE TOO

    I've never stayed at DLH, but we stayed at GCH a few times. IME, GCH appears to be close to the parks, but we always end up with a room ridiculously far from the elevators, and no closer than a room on Harbor.

    I'd probably stay at DLH.

    GCH by far. Stayed there twice and will again and again. It's worth the price.

    I think I speak for a lot of members, when I say, we want to convince you to stay at the Paradise Pier.

    Yes, it is for all resort guests, not just GCH

    Got it, one room at the Paradise Pier, your Gray Line bus tickets will be waiting for you at the airport.

    If you can afford either one and want to fork out a little bit more I would go for Grand Californian. I've only walked through the lobby to get into DCA and loved it.
    I am so sick of Frozen I can't even describe the feeling.

    I agree 100% with this. Just make sure to request a room off the lobby so you won't need to deal with some of their mile long corridors.

    I think that children really love DLH! It's got a super "Disney" atmosphere that keeps me coming back...GCH is beautiful, but I don't feel like I'm at a DL resort there. Don't get me wrong, it's great! But I like to feel that special Disney magic...it's very different from DLH.
