- 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.
This short couple-day stop at Disneyland brought back wonderful memories of spending my honeymoon there in 1964. Of course it has expanded more than 1000%! We had a fun time enjoying the rides plus Downtown Disney.
Our family of four, with a teenage son and daughter, stayed at this property for a few nights in July on mini-vacation. We are DVC members and relatively local, so we usually come here twice a year. This is a nice, pretty basic resort hotel but of course location is everything and its’ location adjacent to Downtown Disney and within a monorail ride or a walk to the parks is what sets it apart. The monorail is pretty reliable and reasonably uncrowded in the outbound direction, but the return trip is often overcrowded and the service closes on and off during certain events such as fireworks.The walk through Downtown Disney to Disneyland takes about ten minutes. We typically do walk, sometimes stopping to shop or snack. It is a pleasant stroll. We self-park the day we show up and typically don’t see our car until we return to go home. Self-parking is really easy at this property.We check in early on our first morning and leave our bags with the bellman. The hotel will text you when your room is ready and your key cards will automatically be activated, so no need to return to the desk.We typically book a basic room with a premium view ( 8th floor or above ) of either Downtown Disney or the pool area. With two queens and a fold-out sofa, this comfortably sleeps our family. The rooms are nice, clean and quiet but nothing special. Perfectly fine for our family. Sometimes these rooms have an easy-chair with an ottoman that I like to pull in front of the floor to ceiling window. But sometimes they don’t and I end up with the office desk chair, which isn’t quite as nice. Dear Disney, for your future consideration, this would seem a relatively simple amenity to provide.The pool area is very nice and features a water slide that is really fast and a lot of fun. Two more swimming pools provide plenty of swimming space even during peak hours. Like any resort in Summer, the poolside seating is at a premium, but we always seemed to find a place to perch. Poolside service is extensive and friendly. Kids will need a special signature if they want to use their room keys to charge to poolside service.A tiki-themed bar and grill is adjacent to the pool. You can order from a decent selection of the usual burger, sandwich fare and relax on the shaded terrace that wraps around the place.There is a character dining venue on the property. We ate there when the kids were younger and the food is pretty good, though predictably overpriced. There is a steakhouse on the property as well but we have not yet eaten there. There are a bazillion places in Downtown Disney to eat, all within walking distance. We like Brenan’s Jazz Kitchen, Catal and Tortilla Joe’s.Like all Disney resorts, booking the property grants you access to “magic hours”, a one hour early open that alternates every day between Disneyland and California Adventure Park. In the busy Summer season, this is a good way to get a jump on the A-list rides.We had a great stay here in July. We will be back many times in continuing our tradition.
We used to come here and enjoy it. This time was different. We heard the rooms were renovated. They seem actually smaller to me, and dated. I see no evidence of an upgrade. Our room service was late and then my daughter had an allergic reaction to it and broke into hives. The woman at the front desk smiled and said sorry, and offered to call the resort nurse. Not helpful. Let me say that the service staff - those cleaning the rooms - were very kind, as were the clerks at the Disney store in the hotel lobby. They all showed concern and compassion for my daughter and told me to report the food allergy incident to the kitchen. Thanks to them! Disneyland - you make enough money to care more about your guests. If someone left my home broken out in allergic hives, I would do everything I could to find out what caused it. Yet, they just told me there were no nuts in the food we ordered and got off the phone as soon as possible - as if it was my own fault.
We throughly enjoyed our stay here! The rooms were clean and well maintained and the hotel offered all the ammenities you would expect. It was really helpful to be so close to the parks too.The kids loved the swimming pool and water slides. The staff were friendly and helpful. We did the character dining experience at Goofy's kitchen and it was a great way for the kids to meet the original Disney characters.Overall, a great place to stay!
This hotel looks way more magical on the website photos and YouTube videos than it really is. I convinced my husband to stay here rather than Grand Californian because of it! I know it's the classic original Disney hotel, so that is cool, but the lobby and grounds are unimpressive at best. We had a park view room in Adventure tower, but it was at a far distance and beyond a parking lot and entrance to Downtown Disney. We could see the fireworks, though. My kids liked the firework lights over the bed (a fun touch!) but overall the place was average and the bathrooms and fixtures need updating. The location was very convenient to Downtown Disney and also the monorail. Can't beat it! I was also impressed by the amount of life guards at the pool, all rotating stations every 10 minutes or so. Have never seen that at a hotel!
