    We are considering staying Club Level at the Grand Californian. We have friends that will also be guests at the hotel but not club level. Can we bring these friends into the club level veranda with us? Thanks

    Welcome to planDisney, Kristine! Thanks so much for sending us a question. I'm happy to hear you are planning a vacation to The Happiest Place on Earth!

    Just thinking about Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa makes me smile! This is my favorite hotel at Disneyland Resort for so many reasons! The rooms are so nice and staying in one that offers club-level service is extra magical! Having experienced club-level at a Disney Resort Hotel, I highly recommend it. The amenities for club-level, as well as access to The Veranda, are reserved for guests listed on your hotel reservation. Unfortunately, guests that are not staying in a club-level room would be unable to join you. I wouldn't let this change your mind about staying in a club-level room though. I would suggest making an advanced dining reservation so that you can still enjoy some time and a great meal with your friends. 

    For dining options at your hotel, I love dining poolside at GCH Craftsman Bar. They have an excellent cocktail selection and the nachos are amazing! If you prefer a more formal option, Napa Rose is just minutes away from your hotel room. 

    If your schedule allows for it, I highly recommend planning a pool day during your hotel stay. I really enjoyed our stay last summer and this was a highlight for me between our family's days in the theme parks. The Fountain Pool was my favorite spot to lounge and relax!

    As you are planning, please feel free to send us any additional questions you have. We're happy to help at planDisney!
