We arrived on a Thursday afternoon. We flew into John Wayne Orange County airport. The airport was not far from the hotel. It took about 20 minutes on the Disneyland Express bus. The bus was convenient since we didn't bring a car seat for our 2 year old. The first stop for the bus is the Disneyland Hotel. Though the bus stop is a short walk to the entrance of the hotel. The path there wasn't so easy with roll luggage due to the many curbs and elevated walk path.
Check in was okay, I tried requesting for a room in the Adventure tower, due to recommendations from other tripadvisor reviews. But the only room they had available was in the Frontier tower (furtherest tower to downtown disney. Though the closest tower to the entrance to the water slide part of the pools. Also she said it was a larger double bed room with the daybed (sofa that converts to a daybed). The daybed worked wonderfully for our 2 year old! The room was very spacious, probably large enough to fit a family of 4-5 comfortably, the only issue would be the bathroom space. One complaint would be the very uncomfortable mattresses on the queen beds! One of the beds we had, you could hear and feel the springs. The beds are definitely not very comfortable and not good for your back, especially if you already have back issues.
The hotel is convenient to the monorail to Tomorrowland in Disneyland. It is a short walk through downtown Disney to the entrance of Disneyland Grand Californian hotel to enter California Adventure. I thought the convenience of staying at a Disney resort was worth it to have the additional options to enter the parks and also to be able to just take a short stroll and your back to your room to rest your feet and have some fun in the pool before heading back to the park.
Overall, my family had a wonderful stay at the Disney resort. Next time we'll try to save up to try out the Grand Californian hotel, maybe they have better mattresses.
The one downside of staying at the resort with out a car, is that you are stuck eating the resort food the entire stay, which isn't the greatest in taste and price.
