    Is the Wi-Fi good at the California Grande Hotel? I have a very important work meeting and must take it during our vacation. I’m concerned about poor Wi-Fi connection at the hotel.

    Hello there, Shannon!

    Welcome Home and welcome to planDisney.  Shannon, in every job that must be done, there is an element of fun.  You find the fun, and snap! The job's a game.  I am sorry to hear you have to take time out of your vacation for a work call, but certainly having to do it while being immersed in the magic is way more fun than sitting in the office, don't you think, Shannon? Plus, as you know, a spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down, and the best kind of sugar is the kind in the Jack-Jack Cookie Num Nums.  I recommend rewarding yourself with one and a ride on the Incredicoaster once you are done! 

    Shannon, I checked with our Disneyland planDisney Panelists who spend quite a bit of time "working" when visiting Disneyland - you know, for research.  They report - and it has been my experience - that complimentary WI-FI at all of the Disneyland Resort Hotels is pretty strong.  To access it, simply select "Disneyland Resort Hotels Wi-Fi" from your phone, tablet, or computer. If you have any problems trying to connect, call the Front Desk for assistance. I would recommend trying it out before your important call so you can resolve any connection issues in advance. 

    Now, of course, there is always the possibility of a glitch anytime the internet is involved or should weather move into the area.   But one of our Panelists, Danielle C.,  is also an online school instructor and in fact was able to teach one of her courses when visiting in January.  My husband often has to take work meetings while we are at Disney, and typically the internet is quite strong and not a problem. 

    I hope your upcoming Disneyland vacation and stay at Disney's Grand Californian Resort is practically perfect in every way. If you have any further questions, stop back and see me, and I'll be so happy to help you!

    Have a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious time,
