If you are considering visiting Disneyland during the 2016 year, we highly recommend staying on property at the Disneyland Hotel. We recently stayed at this hotel on our last vacation and we loved the new renovations they did over a year ago. The pool was renovated with a new Monorail theme slide area that kids love! The pool area includes 3 pool areas for families – one being the slide area. The only downside is that you can’t sit in one area and see all three pools to watch your kids while they swim. My preschooler went down the small slide about 100 times!
As always at all Disney pools, they offer complimentary life vests for little ones as well as free pool towels. We enjoyed some delicious lunch pool side from Tangaroa Terrace. It was fantastic!
Between the three Disneyland resort hotels, the Disneyland Hotel is the oldest hotel and has the largest rooms for families because of its age. We have stayed at the Disneyland Hotel many times and we love the new renovations. The lobby was redesigned to be more open concept as well as the surrounding areas. The hotel still has the three main towers of rooms.
We stayed in the Adventure Tower with views of the pool. This tower also has theme park views available. Between the three resort hotels, the Disneyland Hotel offers the most Disney-theme magic! The most magical thing that was added to each room is a beautiful wood-carved headboard that lights up fireworks when you turn it on, and plays “When You Wish Upon A Star”. It was so lovely! The lights were just enough for a soft nightlight when we slept. Our kids loved it!
For our big family, we had plenty of room in the hotel and we loved it there. It was a short walk to the parks and we were so close to Goofy’s Kitchen which is a great character dine!
We know at Disneyland, there are a lot of choices in places to stay with your family. But I think the best part of our trip was staying at the Disneyland Hotel. We were able to come back to our room to rest and we loved relaxing at the pool or hanging in our room.
The room is filled with Mickey magic and kids will love it there!
