My family and I are premium pass holders and we visit Disneyland A LOT. We've stayed in most of the better hotels in Anaheim including the Disneyland Hotel. This hotel is by far our favorite. Rooms are spacious and clean. Grounds are immaculate and the hotel staff is the friendliest i've encountered anywhere. I would highly recommend this hotel

We stayed here for six nights during our Disneyland trip. We stayed in Building 4 on the second floor in a double-double. The natural light was fantastic! I really loved the small buildings accessibility to the resort and Disneyland. It was about a 10-12 minute walk with the kids to the parks from our hotel. Each night we saw the fireworks at Disneyland right outside our building. Be aware that if you are an early light sleeper these are quite loud. Our family enjoyed the fireworks a lot! It would be great if there was a continental breakfast on site, but I think it would be so crowded at the same time each day with park opening that I really am not too sad about it! The staff was amazing and the beds were so soft and comfortable! Would definitely stay here again next time!

Room Tip: Definitely try the second floor of one of the smaller buildings!
