Grand Legacy at the Park hotel review in Anaheim, California.
This review was originally published in 2016 when I stayed at Grand Legacy both during their remodel and after. My most recent stay was September 2018.
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.
Grand Legacy At The Park kills it with location. I’ve stayed at other hotels that are “within walking distance” of Disneyland. That’s code for, “It’s totally walkable but pretty long with a crew of kids after a long day at Disneyland.” Grand Legacy at the Park is minutes from Disneyland property. I walked back and forth several times for naps and breaks without a problem.
Grand Legacy Luxury Suites & Rooms
Grand Legacy’s newest 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? There are a variety of rooms and prices at the hotel. I’ve personally stayed in 4 different room types here.
The interior is tastefully decorated with updated furnishings, window coverings and a complete remodel of the bathroom and vanity area. I’ve been to a lot of hotels where they just re-caulk or put new tile on top of old tile—this is not the case here.
I have an eye for detail when it comes to cleanliness. I cringe when I see a stray hair on the vanity (or anywhere else!) or dust and gunk around the base of the toilet. My hotel room was spotless, and the bathroom was so clean (including the grout and base of the toilet) I even took a hot bath to relax. I was pleasantly surprised to find the tub a lot larger than most hotel bathtubs.
Price is spot on with those looking for moderately priced hotels near Disneyland. Grand Legacy At The Park makes a great Disneyland stay on a budget without sacrificing comfort, cleanliness or location. And for those larger groups, you truly can’t beat their prices on their 2 and 3 room suites. More on that below.

Free Snack Bag for you walk to Disneyland
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.

“We stayed at the Grand Legacy at the Park. This hotel was very clean and comfortable. We stayed in a premium room with 2 queens in the back building. The location is wonderful. Literally a 5 min walk and you are at the park. We went back for afternoon rests and it was great. The pool was great, especially for kids.” -Liane
Rooftop Bar & Lounge overlooking Disneyland
The FIFTH is definitely one of my favorite aspects to the new tower at Grand Legacy At The Park.
With live music and a view to match the vibe, The FIFTH is one spot you don’t want to miss.
On the street level of Grand Legacy’s new tower guests have quick access to food, Disneyland tickets and other must-have items at Alpha Gift Mart, and various quick eats.
Extras at Grand Legacy At The Park
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.
