    I can’t book a room at the Grand Californian for 10/6-10/8

    Welcome to planDisney, Melodie.

    Oh, bother! I'm sorry you're having trouble finding room availability for Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. I tried checking availability for Disneyland Hotel and Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel, and they were also both fully booked. The Disney hotels book up pretty far in advance, I'm afraid. Not only do they immerse you in Disney magic from start to finish, but they have some pretty wonderful benefits. For example, Guests staying at a Disneyland Resort hotel can enjoy Early Entry into the theme parks. This gives Guests a 30-minute head start to experience some of their favorite attractions. 

    Melodie, I know this isn't the news you were hoping for. However, let me direct you to some of the Good Neighbor Hotels. My family stayed at one of these hotels on our most recent Disneyland Resort trip and we had a great experience. In fact, our hotel was closer to the theme parks than some of the Disneyland Resort hotels! Our hotel also included free breakfast. So we were able to enjoy a hearty meal every morning before taking a 5-minute short walk to The Happiest Place on Earth.

    I hope that's helpful, Melodie. Please stop by planDisney again if we can help you with anything else.

    See ya real soon!
