“Right In The Middle Of The Magic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

The location is fantastic being right next to Downtown Disney and about 15 or so minutes walk to Disneyland and the California adventure.
The pool area is nice with loads of room when we stayed. Never had any trouble getting sunbeds with shades. Pool service quite good. Lots of lifeguards on duty.
The hotel itself is good but dont expect it to be like a 5 star. Although its very expensive your paying for the location and the Disney experience/ambiance.
The room was very good with the themed headboard being the main feature.
We stayed in the Adventure Tower with a view over the pool and the pleasant gardens.
Have lost count of how many times we have been to Disneyland but this was our first stay in a Disney Hotel. Overall we enjoyed the stay and would go back again without hessitation. Staying at a Disney hotel certainly enhances the whole Disney magic. The staff couldnt have been more helpful.

We enjoyed five memorable nights at the Disneyland Hotel. Our apartment on the 12th floor was amazing. We had wonderful views over Disneyland and could see the nightly fireworks from our picture windows or large balconies. We had two rooms and were able to leave our doors open and close the double doors at the end of the passage making one large extremely spacious apartment. Decor was lovely and everything spotless. There were coffee dripolator machines in the rooms, though they only supplied sachets for one cup each adult per day, and that was forgotten a couple of times. Room service meals were well presented and delicious. The swimming pools were fun with water slides, fountains and climbing things. We had breakfast in Goofy's kitchen one day where the blurb said we would meet most of the Disney characters. The food was great, with plenty of choices for everyone. The characters were a little disappointing - we had a compulsory photo taken with Goofy, and then only saw Cinderella and Pluto and two lesser known characters. People that has said they were celebrating something had the few characters that were there gathered round round their tables at times to sing and chant. One great advantage of staying in the hotel was being able to enter Disneyland and California Adventure Park one hour before the general public were admitted. With good planning we were able to get onto rides in this hour without the extremely long queuing time during the day. The mono rail was five minutes from the hotel, but we found that with having to take kids out of strollers, and fold them and get everything up the stairs to the train it was much easier to just walk through Downtown Disney. It took us about fifteen minutes - always much longer on the way back as we browsed the many interesting shops or stopped to eat at one of the many restaurants.

Room Tip: Above the ninth floor with a view over the theme parks

We stayed on the Top floor of the Adventure tower, the resort view is amazing! Can't beat it! You never feel like you are leaving the parks! The location is great, it takes like a minute to walk to the monorail station that takes you right into Disneyland. We went through the gate at the grand Californian to get the the California Adventure Park. The new pool is very nice and relaxing. Best place to watch the fireworks out of the park is in the concierge lounge here.

Room Tip: The Adventure tower is closest to the parks, and has the best views!

We stayed during the first week of July and were surprised (and relieved) that it was not as crowded as expected, minus 4th of July of course. Downtown Disney was shoulder to shoulder but that did not matter. We lounged at Trader Sam's enjoying the Hawaiian guitar music while my kids made friends with other kids on the patio. In the evening, shared a priceless moment watching the fireworks from our hotel room with the music piped in from the t.v. not worrying about sitting for hours for a prime seat and dealing with crowds. The rooms were clean, comfortable, well insulated, spacious...up to Disneyland standards. Convenience of vicinity is well worth it especially having small children we went back to the room frequently and the resort itself provided plenty of entertainment that I would not expect at other hotel chains. Highly recommend!

It was expensive but worth the price to be near the parks and get enjoy the park one hour before the general public. However, the customer service was a complete disappointment. After traveling all day, we were ready to settle into our room, only to discover that we were given the wrong room keys to another room with someone already in it at the Frontier tower. Once we got the correct keys, we had asked for a king bed with a view, but instead got two standards with a view of a parking lot. Not happy. We called the manager and she made it right but it already left a sour taste in our mouth. We placed the express room service breakfast door hang outside our door and they never showed up to take it so we didn't have breakfast the second morning. Overall nice hotel, but staff and processes could use some improvement.

Let me start out saying that I had wanted to stay at this hotel since I was a little girl. That is the reason that I picked it. The check in was good but after that it was just another hotel. I wish that they would have told us that the gym was being remodeled as one person in the party wanted to use it and when he went there, no work out equipment was there. Plus they also advertise about the characters being in the lobby and I didn't see one there ever. The air in the room was working properly and I stopped someone in housekeeping and asked about it and she told me to call housekeeping. Hmmm I thought I was talking to someone in housekeeping. I have been waiting for a survey from them but no survey. The only good thing about staying here is getting into the parks early. I really expected better customer service from Disney.

We stayed at the Disneyland Hotel and it was magical. A childhood dream coming true. Service, staff, hotel, everything was just like I had imagined it would be. We loved it so much we are going back in December to stay from Christmas Eve to New Years Eve. Excited so much. Beds in the rooms are so comfy and there was coffee making facilites in the room. We could see the Disneyland Park from our room and on the nights we were not in the park could still see the fireworks display. Bathroom was clean and good size. Housekeeping staff were very good and room was always ready when we returned from our days out. Lots of things to do and see just at the hotel but with downtown disney right at your door step so many things to do.
