Staying at the Disneyland Hotel

Effortlessly blending nostalgic charm and modern sensibilities with a sprinkling of pixie dust, the Disneyland Hotel is ideal for kids and adults alike. While each of the hotel’s towers is named for Disneyland’s opening-day lands, Disneyland Hotel rooms boast sleek lines and contemporary comforts.

Depending on what kind of vibe you want and how many you’re traveling with, guests can choose from either standard rooms and suites, club-level rooms or Disney-themed Signature Suites. 

Disneyland Hotel Rooms

You know that feeling you get during a Disneyland fireworks finale after a long day in the parks? Or when the tune to “When You Wish Upon a Star” plays and Cinderella Castle fills the screen before a Disney movie? That’s how the rooms feel at the Disneyland Hotel, down to the light-up(!) headboard art adorned with Sleeping Beauty castle and fireworks bursting overhead. 

Warm and welcoming with contemporary lines and whimsical yet subtle Disney-themed details – like pillows emblazoned with song lyrics, carpet dotted with Hidden Mickeys and bed runners inspired by a glittering fireworks display – Disneyland Hotel guestrooms are comfortable with the perfect dose of pixie dust. Even the Disney movie intro’s signature blue can be seen throughout.  

In general, all standard rooms at the Disneyland Hotel come with the following amenities: mini-fridge, coffeemaker, iron & ironing board, satellite TV, hairdryer, in-room safe, alarm clock, phone with voicemail and high-speed Wi-Fi. A crib is also available upon request.

Disneyland Hotel Prices

Disneyland Hotel pool slide

As the original Disneyland Resort hotel, opening its doors mere months after the park did, the Disneyland Hotel is filled with history – and that history comes at a price. While not the priciest hotel at Disneyland (that title goes to Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa), a night here will still cost you a pretty penny, clocking in at $300 to $410 per night. 

Plus, remember that if you decide to drive to Disneyland, you’ll also have to pay for parking every night. (Unless you’re a Disney Vacation Club member, that is. Then complimentary parking is provided for up to two vehicles). 

Self-parking costs $35 per night for each vehicle or $40 per night if you’re parking an oversized vehicle. Alternatively, for those looking to really take a break during their vacation, valet parking is also available for $50 a night.  

Disneyland Hotel Amenities

Walt Disney designed Disneyland with guests, specifically families, in mind. So, it’s no surprise that the Disneyland Hotel is filled with many thoughtful amenities, from restaurants dishing up delicious food and Disney magic to delightfully retro pools styled after the Disneyland of yesteryear. 

Disneyland Hotel Restaurants

From Disney characters to the ultimate Disneyland bar, you’ll find some tempting dining options at the Disneyland Hotel. 

Goofy’s Kitchen

Starring Chef Goofy and his famous friends, Goofy’s Kitchen serves up bottomless American-style favorites for breakfast and dinner with a side of Disney character dining fun. Open for Disney character breakfast or dinner

Tangaroa Terrace Tropical Bar & Grill

Overlooking the hotel pools, this tropical pool bar – complete with tiki torches – offers guests a tranquil respite from the sun and swimming-pool crowds and Polynesian-inspired eats all day long. Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drink service

The Coffee House

The Disneyland Hotel’s resident coffeehouse, The Coffee House is a convenient stop on the way to the theme parks for flaky pastries and morning caffeine fix. Open for snacks and AM drink service

Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar

One of Disneyland’s best bars, Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar is overflowing with boozy concoctions, global flavors and “Enchanted” surprises – a must-go for Disney fans and tiki bar connoisseurs alike. Open for lunch, dinner and drink service

Disneyland Hotel Pools & Other Recreation

As hot and sticky as things can get in Central Florida, Southern California’s sunny weather can also make you want to jump in a pool all year round. Luckily, the Disneyland Hotel offers two refreshing hotels dripping with Disney-themed, vintage-inspired charm: the feature E-Ticket Pool or the decidedly more serene D-Ticket Pool. 

The E-Ticket Pool is named for Disneyland’s E-Ticket rides, the park’s most popular attractions. Fittingly, of the hotel’s two splash pads, this playful pool draws the biggest crowds. Taking its inspiration from Disneyland’s early days, the pool is decked out with signs reminiscent of old theme park tickets, an old-school Disneyland sign and, best of all, two thrilling waterslides made to look like classic red and yellow Monorails.

The nearby D-Ticket Pool, meanwhile, is more subdued. While the pool itself is great for swimming laps, guests can also unwind in the toasty Mickey or Minnie whirlpool spas or even lounge the day away in a swanky, private poolside cabana (available for an additional cost). 

If you’d rather get in a workout in the gym rather than swim laps, head over to the Fitness Center (temporarily located in the Mark Twain Room at the Frontier Tower). The Fitness Center is stocked with all the basics for keeping fit at Disneyland, such as cardio and weight machines. 

Disneyland Hotel Merchandise Locations

On the hunt for a special souvenir? Located in the hotel lobby, Disney’s Fantasia Shop is your source for collectibles, toys, autograph books and more. 

In search of snacks for your room or a replacement for something left at home? Swing by small world Gifts & Sundries neighboring the pool for food, drinks, sundries and apparel. Of course, if you still can’t find what you want, the Downtown Disney District is just around the corner.  

Disneyland Hotel FAQs

Want to know more about the Disneyland Hotel? Read on for answers to some commonly asked questions. 

Is the Disneyland Hotel refurbished? 

The Disneyland Hotel may be the California resort’s oldest hotel, but you wouldn’t be able to tell, thanks to its recent renovation. After receiving a well-deserved facelift – complete with updated fabrics throughout the hotel, fresh flooring and upgraded platform beds – the Disneyland Hotel reopened its doors to guests on July 2, 2021.  

Can you see fireworks from the Disneyland Hotel?

Yes, but you’ll need to pay for it. If you can snag a room in Adventure Tower, you can catch some of the Disneyland fireworks from Premium Downtown Disney View Rooms. Alternatively, you can also splurge on a Disneyland Club-Level room and gain access to the E-Ticket Club. This concierge lounge touts a view of the show and even plays the soundtrack. 

Well, that’s all there is for our Disneyland Hotel guide. With oodles of pixie-dust-powered charm and a convenient location just a short walk from Disneyland and California Adventure, as well as Downtown Disney, the Disneyland Hotel is a great stay for both the young and young-at-heart.
