Have you ever considered staying on-property at a Disney resort hotel on the West Coast, but were kind of apprehensive on the prices? Well let me tell you, these properties have some perks that really speak to their value! Let’s get into The Disneyland Hotel!
1. Proximity to the parks
The Disneyland Hotel is right next to the entrance of Downtown Disney which provides easy access to amazing food, shopping and entertainment, but most importantly, a quick walk through Downtown Disney will lead you to the entrances of both Disneyland Park and Disney’s California Adventure! If you are familiar with Walt Disney World resorts, think of the walk between Contemporary and Magic Kingdom, but with dining, shopping and fun along the way!
2. On-Site Dining
The Disneyland Hotel is home to Goofy’s Kitchen as well as Tangaroa Terrace! Two dining options with totally different vibes and delicious options! Tangaroa Terrace is your quick service option and it has a tropical twist on some classics for breakfast, lunch and dinner! There is also a spacious outdoor seating area! Goofy, Minnie, Chip and Dale are whipping up some fun at Goofy’s Kitchen! Again, if you are a WDW pro, think Chef Mickey, but (sorry Mick) better! My family all agreed that the food here, while still a buffet, was some of the best character meal dining we have experienced! The characters were also amazing and came around to dance about every 10 minutes and had great (yet safe) interactions with all of us!
3. The Monorail Pool
The slide is a monorail, need I say more!?!? This pool is adorable and bigger than the pictures show!
4. Trader Sam’s
On the West Coast, Trader Sam’s is outdoors on the patio area near Tangaroa Terrace, perfect for the California nights! You can get all the staples here including, my favorite, Dole Whip with Rum! If you’re staying here, you can also bring it to your room to enjoy!
5. The Nostalgia
Nothing says Disney history like the Disneyland Hotel! There are so many nods to history and the Disney story here that you feel closer to the making of the magic than ever before.
