Disney’s Grand Californian Resort Dining Guide

Grand Californian

Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is a luxury, rustic wonder. While the resort is beautiful, the real highlight of staying here may be the theme park views and proximity to the parks. Disney’s Grand Californian makes fabulous first impressions with its wondrous lobby. Guests of this resort are further enchanted with their own personal theme park entrance to Disney California Adventure. Let’s take a look at the Grand Californian dining options. 

Grand Californian Grab and Go, Quick Service and Mobile Order

GCH Craftsman Grill is the quick service at Grand Californian and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is indoor and outdoor seating and mobile order is available here. Breakfast has many hot menu items but also a selection of pastries and grab and go options that are available all day. The lunch and dinner menu overlap with the pool bar under the same name to offer American quick service with California flair.
