If you want to live the grand life at the Disneyland Resort, then you need to stay club level at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. My family did just that for six nights during spring break in 2022. We stayed in Room 6010, which is a premium view club level room.
Looking to elevate your Disneyland Resort experience? Then, consider upgrading to a club level room at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. Club level rooms have exclusive access to the Veranda, a lounge and terrace on the top floor of the hotel. Food and beverages (including alcohol!) are offered all day long in this bright and airy space. The terrace is also the perfect place to watch Disneyland Park’s nightly fireworks, which we did one night of our stay during spring break 2022.
