- 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.
Our stay began with a 20 minute wait at check-in, at which we were assigned an occupied room. We waited in line for 20 minutes a second time to get this corrected, as cast members appeared from behind the check-in desk...only to scurry back into hiding. Once checked in, the stay went better. However, even though the monorail was closed, the hotel offered no transportation to the park. As two members of our party are partially disabled, the 1.1 mile walk to the parks was inconvenient, and had we stayed at one of the "neighborhood hotels" we would have saved about $300/night and had a shorter hike to the parks. Guests should check the monorail status at the time of booking. While most of the service was up to Disney standards, there were occasional glitches with housekeeping (forgetting to change out dirty glasses and empty the ice bucket), but the staff was friendly and always willing to fix anything wrong. In short, this wasn't a bad stay, but given we paid about 3x the rate one would pay for the Embassy Suites, we're fairly certain that this was only a "good" value for the money.
We normally stay at the Paradise Pier Hotel and enjoy our time there very much. However, this year with the new security areas in place, staying at the Paradise Pier Hotel would have cost about 15 more minutes of walking to get to the parks. You can no longer walk through The Grand Californian from there, so we opted to stay at The Disneyland Hotel for a little more money. My husband is a big fan of Disney history, so he was excited to stay in the hotel that was original to the park. Since we need a room with a Daybed, we chose the Disneyland Hotel over the Grand Californian. We heard it is sometimes not possible to get that extra bed there, and we have 5 people so we definitely need it. In the Fantasy Tower of the Disneyland Hotel, there are many pictures and shadow boxes pertaining to the long history of Disneyland and the Disneyland Hotel. There are also two gift shops there. One shop has "It's a Small World" themed items that can only be found at the ride or at World of Disney. The lobby is decorated with a Small World inspired carpet and tea cup chairs. Overall, the hotel is clean and cute. The staff was very competent with holding baggage and accepting deliveries. The grounds are decorated with a Polynesian type theme:lots of lush vegetation and the outdoor restaurants have this island vibe. We stayed in the Adventure Tower, which seemed to be mainly inspired by The Jungle Cruise. Our room had old black and white photos of Walt, and of course,the headboard that plays music and lights up. The pool area is large and was never extremely crowded in early June. The slide is amazing fun, but for older kids for sure. We have a child with foot issues, so for us the extra money spent was worth not having a longer walk to the Paradise Pier. We enjoyed having a quick breakfast place at the hotel ( The Tangaroa Terrace) that isn't available at Paradise Pier, too. However, our actual room was not any nicer than ours at The Paradise Pier, and the PPH has cute touches that rival the lighted musical headboard, too. The Disneyland Hotel has an outdoor fire place, which is a cozy place to rest in the evenings when it gets chilly, but that area was always pretty crowded with adults. One thing at the DLH that is better than the PPH is the elevators. They are quick and we almost never had to wait for crowds to get on or off even though the hotel was completely booked the week we were there. Final verdict- the absolute closest hotel to the park is the Grand Californian. If you can afford it, that's the place to stay. I feel that the Paradise Pier Hotel is slightly worse than the Disneyland Hotel, but only because the pool is small and the wait is longer for elevators. If they ever change the security and you can walk from the PPH through The Grand Californian, we would probably save the money and stay at PPH. I don't have anything bad to say about the Disbeyland Hotel, only that it is not necessarily worth being more expensive than the Paradise Pier.
Our family of 4, including 16yo daughter and 15yo son, stayed at the DisneyLand Hotel for 3 nights. We found the room to be spacious and modern with plenty of room for the four of us. We stayed in the Frontier Tower and had two double beds and one fold-out couch that was quite comfortable so our son and daughter did not have to share a bed. The design of the fold-out bed left plenty of room to move around. Room included a small fridge, separate desk and closet area so our daughter/son could dress with some privacy, and a great view of the pool. Bathroom is a good size but would be a little more manageable for a family of four if it had dual sinks. But there is a storage shelf under the sink with plenty of space and a large vanity for everyone's toiletries.The hotel is just steps from the entrance to Downtown Disney and a 10 minute walk through that complex to both the Magic Kingdom and California Adventure. Convenience to the parks and spaciousness of the rooms are the driving factors that will bring us back on our next visit.
The room was large and the beds comfortable. The backboard was fun as it lit up The bathroom was large & beautiful. Housekeeping was great. The Hotel is beautiful and the restaurant was very good. Had a memorable time!!!
My boyfriend an I stayed at the adventure tower Disneyland hotel last week and it was great! We were on the 9th floor with such a nice view overlooking the pools An such. The room was spacious with a big king bed an it was so comfy. There's a lil fridge An big tv.. on the beds headboard there are fireworks and you press the button on the lamp an it lights them up and plays music! We were late checking out but we called them an they were very nice about it and said 20 mins was not a problem at all.. they are very nice staff! And the walk to downtown Disney is not bad at all it's maybe 5-8 minute walk, an then Disney parks are prob like a 15-20 min walk if the monorail isnt working..Overall was a great stay deff want to go back!
