    Hello we will be staying at the Grand Californian Villas how do we get to Disneyland. I am not sure where the walking paths are.

    Hi Kristen,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. How wonderful to be taking a trip and staying a The Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. My family took a trip to the West Coast a couple of years ago and stayed there. It is truly an amazing resort! The feel of the resort is cozy and warm, and the ability to walk to both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park is wonderful.

    From the lobby of Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, you will need to head toward the convention room wing to get to Disneyland. You will head outside and go through a breezeway that will put you onto the Downtown Disney District Promenade. From there you make a right-hand turn, and then you can walk right up to Disneyland! This was a quick walk, and if I remember correctly, the way is well-marked. You can always ask a cast member if you lose your way. Also, from Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa there is an entrance directly into Disney's California Adventure Park, located past the Napa Rose restaurant, so do be sure to take advantage of that entrance as well.

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Kristen! Have a wonderful time planning your magical vacation, and please do let us know if you have any further questions.
