    Our family has stayed on the concierge level at the Grand Ca a few times now and REALLY enjoy the Veranda lounge....especially the food, wine, champagne, etc. How does the food, beverages and service compare to the Beachcomber Lounge at Paradise Pier?

    Hello, Marie, 

    No matter which of the Disneyland Resort Hotels you visit, a club-level stay will give you a wonderful VIP experience. This includes nightly turndown service in your room, exceptional views or convenient locations, and, of course, access to the hotel’s concierge lounge. Though each hotel has its own take on styles and tastes of food offerings, whether at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa or Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, you will find exceptional service and quality. Each morning, a delicious continental breakfast buffet is available at both locations. In the late morning through afternoon, snacks and beverages are available. In the evening, relax with appetizers and drinks, including a selection of beers and wines. In the late evening, both lounges offer Sweet Endings, with divine desserts and after-dinner beverages.

    To celebrate our wedding anniversary, my wife and I enjoyed a Club-Level stay at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel. The Beach Comber Club offered a quiet space to recharge and plan for our day visiting the theme parks. And we absolutely loved our room with a stunning view of Disney California Adventure Park. There were so many magical touches. That vacation experience was one of our most memorable ever.

    On a recent stay at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, I enjoyed access to The Veranda, the hotel’s recently-remodeled concierge lounge. It was simply gorgeous. I couldn’t get enough of the space. I returned over and over to experience the various offerings throughout the day. And the concierge staff was always so happy and helpful.

    To be honest, if I had to choose between the Beach Comber Club and The Veranda, I’d have to give the nod to The Veranda. The convenient location, close to the theme parks and to the Club-Level rooms, makes it so easy to go back and forth. And the serene setting, overlooking the hotel courtyard, is one of my favorite places to just sit and soak up the vacation experience. The exclusive fireworks view from The Veranda is also a great perk.

    Good luck in making your choice, Marie. No matter which you choose, I”m sure your visit to the Disneyland Resort will be filled with magic.
