“Happiest birthday celebration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

We stayed for 1 night for my daughter's birthday. It was trully a magical stay. My daughter (and our family) was so happy with the accomodations, guest services, amenities, etc. We got a complimentsry upgrade with a room facing the pool area. The room was very spacious and had a couch that transformed into a single bed. This sofa bed was the most comfy sofa bes there is! We will look forward to staying here again!

I went to Disneyland's Magic Kingdom with my 18 month old son for the first time with him. I was nervous about bringing him to a big place when he's still fairly young, but as soon as I entered the park, his eyes lit up from the rides, there are changing tables at all restrooms, and I can let him run around Toontown without worrying. We left tired but happy

Stayed 4 nights and really splurged with a 2 room suite. Since my bedroom had 2 queen beds I took turns with each of the kids.The parents had their own bedroom and there was a pull out couch in the living room The kids (5&7) loved the musical lights they could turn on in each bedroom. There is a refrigerator and we did bring bowls and spoons so we could have cereal and oatmeal 3 of the mornings. (It would have been nice to have a microwave too) The coffee machine in the room was one of the worst i've ever seen and we never got a really good cup of coffee. If you are there in the off-season or leave the hotel early there is no line at the Monorail so that is a good way to get to Disneyland. Didn't find a short-cut to Adventureland however. There are 3 outdoor pools and one with a waterslide that the kids loved. If we did go back I would consider staying again, but would also look into some other property that would be much cheaper.

We spent four nights at the Disneyland Hotel at the end of October. We met our son and his family and stayed as part of his military rate. The hotel staff was wonderful, and gave us two rooms connected by a foyer — closing the outside door, and keeping the two inside doors open we had a suite and our two and four year old granddaughters were able to wander back and forth. It is expensive to stay on-site at Disney, but the visit is so much nicer and more fun when you do.

Room Tip: We were in the Fantasy Tower, and we had no complaints!

We spent 4 nights at the Disneyland Hotel in September and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had a room on the top floor of Fantasy Tower which overlooked the carparks, but as we were so high up our view was predominantly of the hills beyond that. There was also a partial view of Disneyland, and although we weren't in the room for the fireworks, I'm pretty sure you would be able to see them from there room. The room was adequate, not large but comfortable. Our girls, aged 6 and 2, were thrilled with the room, particularly the bedhead once they discovered the switch to turn on the lights and music. They turned it on every night before they went to bed. There are Disney motifs everywhere, from the Mickey Mouse hands wrapped around the lamps in the bathroom, to the carpet design reminiscent of Mickey's ears. In the public areas of the hotel, there is piped Disney music. If Disney reminders everywhere are not your thing, then this hotel is not for you!

Staff were mostly friendly, and check-in was efficient. I received a badge when I mentioned we were here to celebrate the 6yo's birthday, which saved a queue in Disneyland for one. Housekeeping and other management staff gave the girls stickers and chocolates when we saw them in the corridors.

The hotel facilities are excellent. The girls loved the swimming pool, and insisted we leave the park for a few hours in the afternoon so they could jump in for a swim. There are laundry facilities on-site which is very handy, although the laundry room in a separate building to the hotel rooms, which makes it a little inconvenient. The cost is reasonable, $1 for laundry powder, and $2 each for the washing machine and dryer. It gets busy in the evening, best to wash on a free morning. I had a problem with the washing machine, after I put in the coins the machine wouldn't start. I rang the front desk for assistance who promised to send someone out immediately, but 30 minutes later no help had arrived. I had to ring again and all up it took 45 minutes for someone to come. Not how I wanted to spend my time, and no apology was tendered. The only dampener on our stay and one of the reasons I've rated not rated this hotel higher. We had both breakfast and dinner at Goofy's Kitchen. Dinner wasn't planned, but we ended up there without a booking but there wasn't a queue. A few days later we had breakfast which had been booked before we left home, and it was much busier and not as nice as dinner. I preferred the food at dinner, and there were more characters at that time too. Handy to have a character dining experience on-site.

We liked the location of the hotel. There are no roads to cross to get to Disneyland, and the walk is not long, no more than 10 minutes at a leisurely pace. The walk back to the hotel is through Downtown Disney with more Disney music all the way! There are buskers and other musical entertainment in the evenings which makes the walk back to the hotel very pleasant.

The hotel is not cheap but it was a great introduction to Disneyland. We are thinking of returning to Disneyland when the children are older and staying for longer. If the price is right, we would consider staying here again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor (11th floor) have higher windows and are bright. Naturally, they also have a...

This was our first time staying in a resort hotel. We booked through Costco and got lots of freebies with our room (free ride pic, $20 gift card & free Character Dining for everyone in our party). THAT alone was $200 worth of stuff. We picked DH because our kids are young (8 & 4) and we were celebrating the youngest turning four. We figured it would be the most "magical" for them.
We stayed four days & had a great time. We arrived EARLY (8:30 am). We were so excited when we pulled into parking, that parking attendant gave us a Most Excited Car (or something) certificate that gave us free valet parking the whole trip! Awesome! Check in was easy, our room was ready & they gave my son an autographed pic of Mickey for his birthday.
Our room: got a pool facing upgrade because of the birthday (yay!) but I don't think it had been used for months. It was very dusty and had no refrigerator. We had to call twice to ask for one, which was frustrating because we'd brought perishable items with us to store. I think the room could have been better cared for. They told us they would move us, but who wants to schlep four people's worth of unpacked stuff to another room/floor/building? Overall it was fine and the kids loved the magical headboard!
Loved the pools - kids had a blast. It was so hot we wanted to jump in at first sight!
We took advantage of the guests only stuff, like early appointments at the car building store and Disney 365 (highly recommend for girls too old for Bibbity), the early entrance, and the Ride Scavenger Hunts. Be sure to ask for those when you check in - they are very fun and you will learn a lot!
Our only complaint was the room (at first) and the actual distance to the park entrances. It's a lot longer walk than you think it will be & they don't let you take the park strollers back to the hotels, so get your shoulders ready for tired kids.
Overall a great stay & already looking to stay again next year!

The recent renovations make a huge difference! Room was clean and modern. In fact, because most of the hotels in Anaheim look quite dated, this hotel seems to be one of the most modern ones. Recommend!
