    I* am a DVC club member but staying at Grand California hotel as paying guest; what are the courtesy benefits that is available for me ... I don't see any DVC discounts on dining ?

    Hi there, Cecilia, and a hearty welcome to the Disney Vacation Club corner of planDisney. Thanks so much for your question--I'm ready to go the distance to make your West Coast visit a magical one!

    It looks like you'll be headed to Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa in just a few days--how fabulous!  A very cool feature of this location is that Guests can actually enter Disney California Adventure Park directly from an entrance located in the hotel!  I love that Disney Vacation Club Membership gives our family the flexibility to travel to lots of different destinations--and I really enjoy taking advantage of some of the extra pixie dust that Membership brings, often in the form of special offers or discounts for dining, shopping, events and tours, and even tickets and annual passes. 

    Cecilia, I took a quick look at the Member Benefits section of the DVC website and was able to confirm that there are quite a number of dining discounts available throughout Disneyland Resort.  You can access this site from the DVC homepage by selecting "Offers & Benefits", then "All Member Benefits". Next, filter the list to show results in Disneyland specifically to see the offers currently available.  These include discounts at Storytellers Cafe, GCH Craftsman Grill, and Hearthstone Lounge, all located in the Grand Californian, in addition to many other dining spots in the theme parks and the Downtown Disney District. 

    Before you jet off to The Happiest Place on Earth, make sure you have added your digital Membership Card to your smartphone wallet. I also highly recommend checking out the most recent episode of the planDisney podcast, which featured panelists Al and Tishra sharing all sorts of great recommendations for visiting Disneyland Resort. I'll be taking my first trip to Disneyland later this year and found their tips super helpful!

    I hope you have the most wonderful vacation, Cecilia! If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to visit us again at planDisney.
