PHOTOS: New Look Remodeled Rooms at Disney’s Grand Californian Resort and Spa

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Today, Walt Disney Imagineering is sharing more details on changes to Disney’s Grand Californian Resort and Spa to bring guests a more ‘premium’ look and feel. In the renovations, all guest rooms, pool areas, the concierge-level Craftsman Club, and the furniture for the lobby, will be remodeled and replaced.

Guest rooms will be completely redesigned to create a fresh sense of luxury. Every single element will be new—from the floors and walls to the furnishings, beddings, and linens as well as upgraded bathrooms. Upon entry, you’ll notice hardwood flooring transition into soft, bright-toned carpeting. The room decor is a contemporary take on the Arts & Crafts style featuring all-new furniture made of natural oak, specially designed for each room, as well as California-inspired artwork created by artists and Imagineers, including beautiful headboard walls with wood inlay designs featuring orange trees and Chip ‘n Dale!

Guests with a sharp eye will catch other uniquely Disney details throughout these newly refreshed rooms. Refurbishments are well underway at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and guests will begin enjoying the first phase of refreshed guest rooms soon.

The multi-phase roll-out is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.

  • This was needed badly. We stayed their in June of 2015 and everything was old and dirty, nice to see the update done.
    Well done Disney.

  • Looks like any other hotel room now. Not in keeping with the outside of the resort. Doesn’t look premium to me. Bathroom looks well, but apart from that, there is no theatre in the design. Disappointed…….

  • I refuse to stay here until each room has a California king bed with a box of California raisins on the nightstand.

  • Everyone knows that the Grand Californian will never truly be grand until it’s a Trump hotel. In fact I should sue them for trying to infringe on the Trump name by insinuating that they are as grand as a Trump hotel. If they were smart they would let the Trump organization take over and it can be called the Trump Disney’s Grand Californian. Actually that sounds too much like the failing Ruth Chris Steakhouse, can you believe what people are saying about them being accused of serving horse? It’s disgusting, they can’t even compare to the deliciousness of Trump Steaks, believe me!

  • A very nice hotel, so close to each park at Disneyland. They did a nice job, from the pictures shown above.
