2. Stay in a Disneyland resort Hotel
What better way to take in a fully immersive Disney experience than to stay onsite at a Disney Resort Hotel? You’ll find three great options to choose from conveniently located right on Disneyland property—Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, and the original Disneyland Hotel. Done up in the full elegance and charm of early 20th century craftsmanship, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa opened to the public in 2001. Discover a whole host of resort-wide amenities, including themed pools, luxurious spa services, and decadent onsite dining. Disney’s Grand Californian even boasts its own private theme park entrance into Disney’s California Adventure and is also in convenient range from the Downtown Disney District. Disney’s Paradise Pier is another great suggestion. This resort opened back in 2000 with a theme reminiscent of jovial beachfront boardwalk delights from the 1920s. Here guests can enjoy a wide range of resort delights, from delicious dining to awesome activities and recreations, including the rooftop pool terrace and waterslide. In such close range to California
Adventure’s Paradise Pier, this is also the perfect place to enjoy stellar views of the fireworks displays. Then there’s the Disneyland Hotel—the first ever Disneyland lodging available to park visitors, having opened back in 1955. Guests today can discover all the original magic as this famed classic continues to draw in crowds. The theme reflects the diverse original lands of Disneyland Park, bringing forth the same timeless elegance and grace of the park’s many enjoyments both past and present. Discover lavish dining, riveting resort amenities (including themed pools with monorail waterslides) and all the Disney Magic you know and love so well.
Staying on location at a Disneyland Resort Hotel offers many perks you won’t find at other neighboring hotels in Anaheim. For one, resort guests can use their room key to make charges and even package deliveries while out and about in the parks. Hotel guests are also given the benefit of Extra Magic Hours, meaning that they can enjoy one-hour early access to either Disneyland Park or California Adventure Park (depending on the day). Plus the resort-wide features and other impeccable amenities only Disney can do with such perfection make staying at a resort property lodging a must-do experience to add on your bucket list.
