    Hello! White Water snacks at the Grand Californian used to offer grocery staples like milk, bread, etc. Now that it has been converted to Craftsmen Grill does it still offer those same staple items? Or can they be found elsewhere in the hotel? Thanks!

    Hi there, Brianna, and thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    There have been some recent updates to Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, and we couldn’t be more excited about this one! GCH Craftsman Grill, previously known as White Water Snacks, has undergone a recent name change, along with an updated menu. Head to GCH Craftsman Grill for a selection of breakfast, lunch, and dinner options, in addition to grab ‘n’ go items, such as drinks, salads, snacks, and sweets. I was actually just at Disney’s Grand Californian the other day with fellow panelist Kristen N., and we were able to check this out for you. Currently, the Grill doesn’t have bread, but you can still find items such as wine, beer, soda, half-gallons of milk, bottled water, juice, snack packs with meat, cheese, and crackers, yogurt, and small cereal bowls. 

    We also double-checked over at the gift shop inside the hotel lobby, Acorns Gifts & Goods, and found bottled water, wine, and tons of yummy snacks! In the refrigerated section, you can also find wine, beer, and sodas. Snacks include chips and dips, granola bars, candy, cereal bowls, nuts, pretzels, and crackers. So, between those two locations, you should be able to find just about anything you’ll need! If, however, you still find yourself missing something, you can always have groceries delivered to your hotel room thanks to Amazon Fresh and InstaCart. 

    You may also notice the new pool gate on the pathway to GCH Craftsman Grill. Just keep in mind that GCH Craftsman Bar & Grill are open to the public, however, the hotel’s pool area is available only to resort Guests with a designated wristband. 

    A stay at the Grand Californian is like nothing else I’ve experienced… so have fun, and soak in the summer magic at the Disneyland Resort!

    See ya’ real soon!
