Let me start by saying that Dan(Raleigh NC) the hotel GM stopped to chat and discovered we were on our honeymoon and promptly brought us two glasses of champagne. What a fantastic start to our stay at the Grand. We were there for Christmas and...More

We chose to stay here because the Disney Resort Hotel was fully booked and the room offered bunk beds for our children.
The children both said the pool wasn’t as good as the Disneyland Resort Hotel, especially the slide.

With your little ones in a stroller I say 10-15 minutes, but the best part is you pass security at the hotel entrance. I suggest during Magic Morning hours leave hotel 30 minutes after they start letting people through where many guest get there early and line up. The monorail while fun for kids to ride will slow you down, but probably better to ride it back tot he hotel where in the evening Main Street and Downtown Disney gets packed.
Staying on property is a huge benefit to enjoy the Disney experience and Best Westerns to me is ratty where homeless people hang out at. If Californian is out of your budget then try the other two, Disneyland or Paradise Pier. Try to get a room with view of fireworks where your kids will surely enjoy it where Disney plays the fireworks music through the TV, and Californian has balconies so can go outside.
