The Top 5 Reasons to Stay at Disneyland Hotel

One of the more challenging parts of planning a trip to Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California is choosing where to stay.  Walt Disney’s first theme park sits among some of the most recognizable names in hotel chains, most within walking distance.  However, no other resort or hotel can compare to the location, history, amenities, and magical details of Disneyland Hotel.

The original Disney resort has remained modern and up to date while still inviting.  This very family-friendly hotel even has a monorail themed waterslide.  Let’s take a closer look at 5 reasons to stay at The Disneyland Hotel when you visit the Disneyland theme parks

Immersive Disney Magic

The Disneyland Hotel isn’t just a place to sleep; it’s an extension of the magic. From the moment you step into the lobby, you’ll be immersed in the enchanting world of Disney.

The hotel’s decor, furnishings, and even the music transport you into a realm where Disney dreams come true.  The subtle and classic nods to beloved Disney theming are enchanting.  For example, the royal blue and gold carpeting that lines the guest room hallways is adorned with a design nod to the “It’s a Small World” attraction. 

Magical Rooms and Suites

The magic continues into the guest rooms as well.  Disneyland Hotel has accommodations from standard queen bedrooms to 1-2-and 3-bedroom family suites.  Club level rooms are an option with exclusive club level lounge access for complimentary food and beverages throughout the day. 

No matter the type of space you stay in, these rooms offer a good dose of magic in them.  The headboards light up with fireworks to the music of “Wish Upon a Star”. The rich color palette and subtle but whimsical Disney details make the rooms feel luxurious and special. 

Proximity to the Magic

Location, they say, is everything, and the Disneyland Hotel offers unparalleled proximity to the Disneyland theme parks. It’s just a short stroll away through Downtown Disney to both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park.
