The Grand Californian Hotel at the Disneyland Resort is getting a makeover.
Disney today revealed that they are “reimagining” all of the rooms at the Grand Californian, along with the pool areas, Craftsman Club, and lobby furniture.
They will maintain the Arts & Crafts design style, but fill the hotel with new furnishings, beddings, linens, and bathroom fixtures.
A first look at the newly redesigned rooms was released today:

“Our renovation adds more luxury to this iconic Southern California hotel, while staying committed to its signature Arts & Crafts design,” said Dan Coleman, General Manager of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. “We want our guests to feel they are staying in a Disney hotel that’s distinctly situated in beautiful California. The revitalized design helps convey this feeling and allows us to continue exceeding guest expectations.”
The redesigned pools and surrounding areas will feature new hardscapes from a variety of natural stones intended to create a warm and welcoming environment.
The new design for The Craftsman Club, the hotel’s concierge-level lounge, will draw inspiration from the architectural and furniture designs of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, a visionary of the Glasgow Style of the Arts and Crafts movement. New hardwood flooring, custom-designed rugs, finely-crafted artisanal furniture and specially-commissioned art will add to the upscale tone of the Club.
The first phase of this ongoing renovation will be completed “soon” to be completed by the end of this year.
