As you enter the lobby of the Disneyland Hotel in California, you're greeted by a soaring mural of Sleeping Beauty's castle, with "When You Wish Upon A Star" playing overhead. Outside, three retro-themed pools beckon families for a swim. Later, you can marvel at the spectacular view of Downtown Disney from your guestroom balcony (east side of the Dream Tower).
Disneyland Hotel Room Beds – check out the beautiful headboard!
Since the Disneyland Hotel is on Disneyland property, you can walk to Downtown Disney and both parks by foot. Although it was a bit of a trek to the parks (you walk past the hotel grounds, and then through Downtown Disney to get there), I found it convenient not needing a shuttle/bus/monorail. I would highly recommend a stroller if you have little children, as they will surely tire from the walk.
Our last day we were able to enjoy the pool and had a few drinks from Trader Sam's to relax alittle more before heading out.
Our time at the Disneyland Hotel was short, I do think the Disneyland Hotel is a great value for the price and like all Disney properties, this hotel is a fun, happy place that children and families will enjoy.
