Disney’s Grand Californian Upgrading Guest Rooms

We learned last month that Disney’s Grand Californian was getting it’s first major overhaul in years. The plan is to up the luxury level by adding some new amenities and in room features that are expected in modern hotels. Plus, this being Disney, there’s a flair of magic too.

Disney has wrapped up phase one of the transformation and some upgrade hotel rooms are already welcoming guests to enjoy the new magical details.

Details include quarter-sawn oak headboards with a Craftsman design. Overhead is a blossoming orange tree mural, you might spy Chip n’ Dale playing in the branches. Select guest rooms have a sleeper bed that will feature artwork of Bambi along with other woodland creatures to big them goodnight.

There are other touches of California around the room. Some will feature original Orange Crate label designs paying homage to the Orange Tree groves that made way for Disneyland and the Anaheim Resort district. A sharp-eyed Disney fan will also note that Silver Lake was the Los Angeles Neighborhood where Walt Disney put his Hyperion Street Animation Studio.

The entire room features arts and craft design. From the countertops to the coffee station you’ll notice green glass from wine bottles. Textured copper adds a craftsman aesthetic to the room.

Other amenities added include charging ports for your mobile tech, a 55-inch smart TV, Keurig coffee makers, and more.

The hotel-wide renovation does not yet have a projected completion date. But if you’re interested in booking a trip, we hope you’ll use our in house travel agent.
