2 Bedroom Villa at Disney's Grand Californian

DSC00311One of the reasons that I truly love being part of the Disney Vacation Club is because  it gives us the opportunity to stay in a category of room that we may not have in years prior to our membership.  Having the opportunity to spread out a little, yet still keep the family together has a great value to me.  For the first four nights of our vacation, our base camp is a 2 bedroom villa at Disney's Grand Californian Resort and Spa.  The Villas at the Grand Californian opened in the fall of 2009 as the first Disney Vacation Club Villas on the West Coast.  One of the smallest DVC properties, it can sometimes be difficult to reserve a villa any less than 11 months out.  Our family was lucky and we were able to reserve our room at just 4 months out from our vacation dates.

The suite of rooms is decorated in Arts and Crafts Style theme with rich wood, warm colors and patterns reminiscent of William Morris' work.  Stained glass lamps softly illuminate the rooms with a golden light, and pounded iron fixtures add the subtle detailing that finishes off overall design style.

The spacious Livingroom offers the kids and I a place to relax while in hanging out on this trip.  The clever "murphy" bed beneath the TV was quickly claimed by Katie.

At the time we made our reservations we asked for a theme park view, and we also faxed a room request stating the same a few days before our arrival.  40% of the DVC rooms at the Grand Californian have a theme park view and overlook Disney's California Adventure. Check out what we got!


Yep, go ahead... hate me... it's okay... I understand. This is the best room EVER.

We'll be getting good use out of the Full Kitchen on this trip!


The Master Bedroom has a King sized bed, private bathroom, and large desk area.  Being that this is a working vacation for me, the desk area was really important.


Tori and Kirk took the second 2nd Bedroom.  It also had a desk where we plugged in a second computer station for the kids' use.  One computer never cuts it in our family, not even when traveling.


With Three Bathrooms there shouldn't be any struggle at all to get ready in the morning.

I could live here easily... seriously... I so don't want to leave.
