- What's Included
The first Disneyland hotel, this original dates back to when Disneyland first opened over 50 years ago. Located right next to Downtown and all the action. The Never Land theme pool is great for kids. This hotel is undergoing renovations which will go on until 2012, so might be a good idea to check before hand and make sure they will not interfere with any facilities you may want to use.
We stay at The Disneyland Hotel every year. We have seen it go through major renovations over the years. Some are great improvements and some we were very sad to see go. We LOVED the koi fish ponds and the beach with volleyball nets that used to be on the property. Our kids also have great memories of the old arcade that used to be there too. We also loved the balconies that the rooms used to have, they removed the balconies after the last major reno. Anyway, enough about what we miss. We still LOVE staying here and still choose to stay here over any other hotel in Anaheim. We have also stayed at the Hilton and the Marriott by the convention centre and many other Hotels in that area so we know the options :). This year our colleagues all stayed at the Disney Grand Californian and we still chose the Disneyland hotel. We love that the Disneyland Hotel is away from the craziness of the crowds at the convention centre hotels. We LOVE LOVE LOVE the first class friendly service and staff at the Disneyland hotel. The new rooms are beautifully renovated and our teens love the fireworks display lighting above the custom engraved wooden beds. With the little tune that plays when the fireworks light up. The beds and pillows are amazingly comfortable. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and comfortable. This year we were put into one of the smaller rooms. Double Queen beds with a small desk. Last year we had a large room with double Queen beds, a full couch and a larger bathroom that had a separate powder room with the sink and mirror and a very large counter. We always use the laundromat on the property, it is right next door to the gym. This year the laundry room had a machine that takes your credit card to start the machines. No more quarters! Yeah!! The pools here are beautiful. The larger pool has lots of beds and private cabanas (cabanas have to be rented). The other pool is further away from the main pool and is poplar with the kids as it has water slides. The pools are warm like a bath - gorgeous! We didn't eat at any hotel restaurants this year. We ate in Downtown Disneyland and in Anaheim. Note: rooms have a fridge in them so we find it's a great idea to stop and buy cereal, granola and yogurt and hard boiled eggs (or your fave breakfast items) for breakfasts. I also pack a kettle for tea and paper bowls and plastic cutlery while staying here. It's very convenient to be able to eat breakfast in our room before heading out for a long day at the Trade-show or at Disneyland :) And the kettle allows us to make tea and instant oatmeal etc. whenever we want. We LOVE that the Disneyland hotel is right next to the Disneyland monorail station that takes guests right into Disneyland - stops at the Tomorrowland station. So, now that our kids are older teens we can leave them at the hotel while we go to the trade-show at the convention centre. The whole area is totally safe and they can go to Disneyland by themselves. This year Disney has moved the security check stands right to the edge of downtown Disney. So as soon as you leave the hotel property to cross the street into Downtown disney the security checks are there. They are no longer at the main gate entrances to Disneyland and California Park. The whole of Downtown Disney is now included in the secure area. We actually enjoyed the secure area being closer to the hotel. Note: DO NOT bring your selfie stick into the secure area. It will be confiscated. We knew that, but we saw a lot of people choose to lose theirs (they had the option of walking them back to their hotel too). We'll be back next year Disneyland Hotel :)
We stayed at the Disneyland Hotel for three nights and it was magical.Check in, there were a ton of people there that were getting everyone in quickly. We checked in and then had someone come out to greet us and explain our room. We were staying on the concierge level and had access to the e-ticket club. The greeter was very nice and showed us the pool and our tower, the adventure tower. The concierge level allowed us to go up to a little area that had windows facing downtown disney and the parks. We were able to watch the Disneyland fireworks from there as we had snacks, desserts, and wine. They had the music piped in so it was like you were there. We actually didn't get to watch the fireworks up there because our room faced downtown disney and who doesn't want to watch the fireworks from their hotel room? There were also cast members there to assist us with booking anything we wanted and were able to answer all of our questions. The headboards are amazing and so beautiful. I want one for my house!The air-conditioning system was noise than most, but it worked well and we didn't have a problem with it. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. We had a turn down service where staff would leave little chocolates on our bed. The pools were great. The weather, not so much. But we still swam in the pool since we heard it was heated to 82 degrees. The slides are really awesome and had it not been so windy and so chilly we would have experienced the pool area more. But there looked to be a lot of sitting areas and food and drink options. The lobby has little themed furniture which was so cute. I liked the teacup chairs. This was our first time at Disneyland and the accessibility to the parks and the different activities and food options were perfect. It was such a magical first visit and one I will never forget! Thank you all for making it amazing!
We had stayed at the GC last year which was in dire need of major renovations so we settled on the Disneyland hotel this year... Like any other Disney property, it is totally overpriced and you have to set your expectations right... You are basically paying for the premium location and the magic hour early access to parks... the room is OK and clean but pretty much a standard hotel room with few Disney details here and there (the klds loved the bed headboard with the castle and the music or the bathroom lamps that are held by big Mickey's hands)...but staying here gives you the peace of mind which is key to a great time at Disneyland: your room key is all you need to pay for anything inside and outside the parks (which can be dangerous ;-)), you get extra hour access which is phenomenal (we did the cars ride 3 times in a row before the park opened to everyone and then jump on soaring as the massive crowd was rushing in... later in the day, each of those rides can be 60 to 120mn wait)... and of course, you walk to the park every day instead of the driving/parking/shuttle marathon...is the hotel worth it on its own? Absolutely not ! Is it worth it as part of the overall experience? totally!
Let me start by saying that we are definitely a "Disney" family. We love just about everything Disney but the Disneyland Hotel fell FAR short of the Disney experience. We found only three staff members that were friendly and we spoke or interacted with dozens. Most acted as if they did not care to be there. The hotel room was average but you are definitely paying a premium to have a headboard that lights-up and plays a short song and a few Disney decorations. As expected, everything was priced high from the food to the shopping, but again, this part was expected before we booked the room. (Although their coffee shop was very reasonable and was one of the few pleasant people that we interacted with). The room was old but clean. (Outside of the windows definitely needed attention though). I considered many things when deciding to rate this experience a 2 and paying for the Disney experience was part of my consideration. Unfortunately, as mentioned above, this experience fell short of the expectation. I will definitely visit Disneyland again in the future, but will not be staying at this hotel.
You can find good OC hotels for like $300/night cheaper, but it's not the "official Disney experience." We wanted to give it a try and forked over more cash, but my family thought it was worth it. Being able to crawl out of bed and walk to the parks was really convenient, and you were able to enter the parks 1 hour earlier if you wanted. Check in was a bit slow, but there is a TV area with DIsney cartoons for the kids, and also visits from characters. We had a regular room with 1 King bed in the Adventure Tower. There was a mini fridge in the room, which was a lifesaver for our toddler's food. A microwave would have been nice too, but the room had limited space. The bed was very comfy but rocked a bit when one of us moved. The bathroom was spacious and modern. As others have said, my family loved the illuminated head board. We had a room next to the elevator, so we were worried about noise, but it was fine. Our room faced the pool too, which had nice views but we didn't hear anything except for the park fireworks. The main tower elevators were super slow at busy hours, but there are other elevators at the far end of the hall which were fine. The pool was very clean and nice, with plenty of open seating in sun or shade (but we stayed in March which is not the high season I assume). They had free kids life vests you could borrow too. The dining options at the hotel are limited (counter service fast food, Goofy's Kitchen, and a very pricey steakhouse), but Downtown Disney is walkable with about 5 restaurants (very crowded for dinner though). Also it's easy to return into the parks for dinner and eat there. At the time, my wife had mobility problems, so she tried to walk but found it was hard. It was very easy to call to get a rental wheelchair (and motor scooters are available too). The staff were super courteous and helpful with us, probably the most disabled-friendly vacation place I've ever seen. We were so appreciative. Kudos to Disney Parks and Resorts - you could tell that the high standards they have for hiring, training, quality, logistics, cleanliness, and MAGIC pay off. We wish we could go there every vacation, if not for the high prices.
