Disneyland Hotel is the original hotel at the Disneyland Resort. It is only one of two hotels in Anaheim with a AAA four-diamond rating. Three towers that are themed to Disneyland’s lands: Adventureland, Fantasyland, and Frontierland stand facing a spectacular pool. They are in the process of building a new Disney Vacation Club tower, too.
Although built in 1955, Disney has done a fabulous job of keeping the hotel feeling upscale and classically modern, with touches of nostalgia throughout. Make sure to explore the resort halls for photos and memorabilia of yesteryear. Also, there is a fun map at the entrance to the resort.
Located at the opposite end of Downtown Disney as the parks, it is the furthest on property hotel from the park entrance, but only steps from the monorail station.
Rooms at Disneyland Hotel
Designers have added the perfect amount of Mickey touches to the rooms. There are many opportunities to find some hidden Mickeys!
The beautiful patterned carpet and textured wallpaper lend luxury to the design, but the focal point is the gorgeous wood carved head board with Sleeping Beauty castle and fireworks. It lights up and plays “A Dream is a Wish your Heart Makes” with the touch of a button. The decorative pillows on the beds mirror the lyrics of your own in room music box. The beds and pillows are especially comfortable.
Most rooms have a single framed black and white photograph of Walt Disney walking through the archway of Sleeping Beauty’s castle. The simple elegance of this photograph is such a fantastic nod to times gone by and the nostalgia seen throughout the hotel.
Room views include Standard, Deluxe, Premium, and Downtown Disney views. There are some rooms that include access to the Club-Level lounge (the E-Ticket Club) and one and two bedroom suites, as well as unique, signature suites.
