We started off our vacation at the fabulous Grand Californian Hotel and Spa, it was amazing! Our cute room had bunk beds with a trundle for the boys and a queen bed for us :) We had a view of the pool and we could see Disney's California Adventure Park too! The hotel was amazing and the staff were all wonderful and accommodating during our stay. We loved the cute "i spy" mickey carpet, Bambi shower curtain and the whole Disney rustic logde feel of the hotel. The hotel has it's own entrance into California Adventure so you don't have to fight with the crowd and the best part was being able to walk back to the hotel at any time for a break.
We spent a day at the pool and the boys loved the water slide. The slide attendant called Jackson "King Jackson" because he went up and down for an entire hour straight! My boys are fish and loved the pool being so close! My brother Cory and his family Beth and cute Riley planned a trip the same time and they stayed at the hotel too so we had fun spending time with them at the pool and at the Storytime Cafe for a character breakfast. The boys "loved" meeting Turk, Chip & Dale, Keni and Koda during breakfast but little Riley feel in love with Dale and snuggled with him, it was so cute!
The hotel was wonderful and all the Disney special touches and amenities for us and the boys made it the best part of our trip. It was so nice to be in walking distance to Downtown Disney for shopping and a hop skip and a jump to Disneyland and California Adventures. We can't wait to go back, soon!!
