“The updates are very nice, but it was an older hotel.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

We stayed 4 nights on the concierge level of the Disneyland Hotel in a room with 2 queen beds overlooking Downtown Disney. The room itself is very clean and comfortable. We had no issues with the cleanliness of the room, but the bathroom needed some work. The sink was fine, but the shower had no water pressure although being hot and the shower head itself looked like it had a few years of mineral deposits on it. The bottom of the tub also had some dirt, but it looked like you would need some heavy duty scrubbing to get that off. The other issue we had was that the room AC unit was not working for either heating or cooling.

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and there was one of the pluses of the hotel. Being so close to the parks was also a big plus along with the Extra Magic Hours. Without this, it would also be impossible to get a ride on Radiator Racers without a 90 minute wait for the ride or Fast Passes.

The club room was a nice place to stop by for a small bite or drink, but I honestly did not feel that there was enough value in this and would not get it again. The breakfast is mostly just a continental breakfast and I would rather have my eggs, bacon and toast.

Room Tip: Ask for a Downtown Disney View!

An average score for what could have been an amazing stay. Its lacking that attention to detail which you come to expect from Disney, that special je ne sais quoi .... On the plus side, it is safe and comfortable for a short stay and although not incredible value for the cost, it is Disney and our family all enjoyed the vacation.

My family stayed at the Disneyland Hotel 4 days and 3 nights during mid-December and it was truly magical. The rooms and hotel itself have been refurbished within the last year or two and they did a great job of embracing the past of the resort while adding modern touches. The headboard is charming and a hit with kids and adults alike. There's a switch on the bedside lamp that when turned on plays a Disney tune and lights up fireworks that appear over the carved castle...Disney magic. One of the best parts about staying at the Disneyland hotel is being able to take advantage of the early entry into the parks and the use of the monorail right into Tomorrowland in Disneyland. Do I wish the hotel were more reasonably priced?? Absolutely! However, it is special to be able to stay so close to the parks, and with young children who need an afternoon nap, so convenient. I love the magic and location of the hotel, I do wish it offered a better value for my dollar. I'll be back, but only when I can afford it.

Price was high for a normal hotel with normal operating costs. Small room. Convenient to park. Always put on hold with hotel operator for things like dining reservations and valet. Next time will stay off-sight. Enjoyed Goofy's Kitchen, but photography service was very expensive and we opted out.

Had a great Christmas stay at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim. We have been there many times and the staff are always friendly and helpful. The hotel, as any Disney property, is clean and nicely appointed. The towels are plush and bathroom amenities good. Great view of Downtown Disney and the parks from the Adventure Tower. Nice restaurants and early morning fare in multiple locations. Easy, easy access to parks with early admission a perk of staying at Disney property.

Room Tip: If you want to see the parks and the evening fireworks from your room, ask for the Adventure Tower p...

This was my family vacation to Disneyland for the first time. Due to Hurricane Sandy, we ended up staying 5 days longer. This hotel was amazing!!! Friendly staff, characters in the lobby, and a few skips to the parks. I am sure there are other hotels that are just as nice, but no matter what, I will be staying at this hotel for EVERY visit. I went for the Halloween Party and had the time of my life! I was more excited than my 4yr old... The pool area was open and beautiful, the shops in the hotel were staffed with great help, and Downtown Disney was literally across the street from the hotel, just walk out the back entrance and you were there. Hands down, the BEST time of my life!!

We had so much fun here that my daughter keeps asking when we can go back. The hotel is a little old but for me it just added to the character. The staff were so friendly and helpful that it was a delight. They tried to sell us the Disney membership which, for someone who doesn't live in the US, is an absolute rip off. Nevertheless they made up for wasting our time with some passes so it was all good.

Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Try and get a pool view as one side backs onto a car park which can be busy on bank holidays. You ca...
