Us TsumTsum’s had the pleasure of visiting and staying at The Grand Legacy at the Park on December 1, 2015 for a “Press Event” where they revealed some very exciting news to us, which we’re so excited to share with all of you at the very bottom of this post!
As we pulled up in front of the hotel, we were guided towards a side entrance where a very friendly hotel valet host was smiling and waiting for us. He recognized our cuteness and realized immediately that we were checking in, so he guided us in the direction of the temporary check-in office.
After our “human” parked the car, we grabbed our tiny luggage and walked into the office. We were greeted by a lovely employee who was smiling ear to ear. She asked us how we got so cute so we told her we originated in Japan, which is the country known for cute things and the famous Japanese words:“Cho Kawaii!” meaning “So Cute!” We were handed our tiny room keys and were told when the check out time was, which we requested a late check out and were granted, free wi-fi and complimentary breakfast. Our room was ready early so we took our tiny suitcases and headed for the 2nd floor.
We were so lucky to have been put in a corner king room as it seemed to be GIGANTIC in comparison to us tiny TsumTsum! The room was large, clean, comfortable and perfect for all of us Tsum’s and our “human.” The bed was beyond comfortable and we had a HUGE television and even a microwave and miniature refrigerator. The seating area was also comfortable and the perfect size for all of us. The little shampoos, conditioners and soaps in the bathroom were perfectly set up on the counter with an adorably folded towel creature. Our room couldn’t have been more perfect but we sure can’t wait until we get to visit the NEW, luxurious rooms that will be available early 2016 in the new building!
The hotel is currently under construction as it changes its front building area, which will include a new lobby, new luxurious family suites and guest rooms, a new breakfast area, a roof top bar and lounge and other exciting stuff to come early 2016. We were there to see these areas before they are completed and open up to the public.
After we got settled in our room, we took our camera’s and wandered down to the pool area to check in for the Press Event. We were greeted with warm smiles and yummy snacks. We were separated into two groups and were given a guide who gave all of the guests hard hats as we proceeded to check out the new building that was under construction.
When we returned to the hotel room, there was a message on our phone, so we all gathered around to take a listen: “Hi there little tsum tsum’s! This is the front desk and we just wanted to make sure your stay was going well. If there is anything else we could do for you, please let us know. Thank you again for choosing to stay at The Grand Legacy at the Park.” The message brought large smiles to all of our faces, especially to TsumTsumCheshire:
All of the hotel employees we crossed paths with during our stay were all so friendly and made efforts to smile and say hi to us. What wonderful hospitality and customer service!
After we slept like royalty, we woke up in time for the complimentary breakfast that was available at the pool area building. Some of us literally stuffed our faces in the powered sugar donuts and the rest of us nibbled on fruit and other delicious breakfast items that were available to us all complimentary of the hotel.
After we were all fueled up from breakfast, our human picked us up and walked us a total of seven minutes from the hotel lobby to the front gate of Disneyland where we got to spend a few hours of fun before heading back to the hotel to pack up. We requested a late check out, and because our human has a (DisneylandAnnualPass), our request had been granted. We packed up our tiny items, checked out and left the hotel with smiles knowing we would be back again in 2016.
