New Construction – Grand Legacy At The Park

It’s not often you see brand new hotel construction in the area immediately surrounding Disneyland, but Grand Legacy At The Park pulled it off in a grand way.

Grand Legacy At The Park is just across the street from Disneyland. Moderate to luxury rooms along with new construction.

Earlier in 2016 I took a tour of the hotel’s new tower while it was under construction (check out my review of their renovated rooms here) and jumped at the chance to stay there again once the new tower opened.

What’s New – Grand Legacy At The Park

Grand Legacy’s Welcome

If you’ve stayed at Grand Legacy during their renovations, you’ll immediately notice how much has changed. A covered front driveway for check-in welcomes you as you walk in to a stunning new lobby complete with a custom mural that truly encompasses the feel of Disneyland.

Luxury Suites

Grand Legacy’s brand new tower puts you up front with the Disneyland magic and you can even reserve a park-facing room.

We stayed in a two room suite with 630 square feet of space and let me tell you, we made use of it all! The two room suites welcome you into a parlor area with a table for four, a couch with a pull-out bed, along with a chair and ottoman. We loved having this extra space to watch TV, relax or eat at the table.

We really appreciated how the bedroom area had ample space and storage for our family. The benches at the foot of the beds served as great place to set down backpacks and purses and store shoes underneath (just don’t leave them there when you check out like I did!).

I also loved the desk area and improved access to wireless Internet right in my room. You’ll also find a TV and mini fridge in your sleeping quarters—a huge plus when you’re bringing snacks and drinks into the parks. See what else I pack in my Disneyland bag here.

When you reserve a west-facing suite, you can even watch the Disneyland fireworks from the comfort of your own room. Since we arrived late on the night of check in, we opted to watch fireworks from our room snuggled up in pajamas. As soon as the fireworks were over we tucked our kids into bed and enjoyed a little late night TV.

Notice all the people standing right below our room on the street waiting to catch the fireworks?

Complimentary Snack Bag

Breakfast was once included in your stay, but now you can enjoy a snack bag for each guest and take it with you on your way to the park. While this is quite the change from past breakfasts offered, it definitely makes for a convenient option. Snack Bags include water, fruit, cheese stick and a granola bar—all great items to take with you to Disneyland. Guest rooms still have mini fridges and microwaves available for any breakfast items you need.

Rooftop Bar & Lounge

The FIFTH is definitely one of my favorite aspects to the new tower at Grand Legacy At The Park. The FIFTH deserves an entire write-up on its own and you can find that review here.

Not everything has changed at Grand Legacy. You will still find the amazing staff taking care of quick check-ins and valet parking when needed. The excellent house keeping staff is ready to mail that cherished hand-made quilt from great-grandma back to you when realize it was left behind (yes, that was us!). Add the comforts of home reflected in every room and you’re certain to have a wonderful Disneyland vacation.

Another thing that remains at Grand Legacy is their fabulous pool, named as one of our top water park pools near Disneyland. You can see their awesome pool in action below.
