If you are planning a visit to Disneyland in 2018 and are debating on where to stay, we here at Chip and Co. think you should definitely consider giving the Disneyland Hotel a try. Not only do you get to take advantage of onsite perks like early park entry and having the theme parks and Downtown Disney right at your doorstep but you also get to enjoy a pretty impressive array of amenities. Here’s just a taste of all there is to see, do and explore at this onsite property.
Dining – For those planning on staying “on-property,” having a variety of different dining options available is pretty important. In this respect the Disneyland Hotel definitely delivers. Here’s a quick rundown of some of the options you’ll find here:
Tangaroa Terrace – This “fast casual” restaurant takes its theming from the original Tahitian Terrace Restaurant in Disneyland with the Polynesian and Tiki decor that was so popular when Disneyland first opened. The restaurant serves up Island-inspired cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. some of our favorite dishes include cinnamon-spiced oatmeal with Island fruit compote and the Kalua Pork Flatbread. Guests will also find a selection of salads, sandwiches and “grab-and-go” items. Seating is available inside or on a large adjacent outside patio.
Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar – Named after Trader Sam the “Head Salesman” from The Jungle Cruise, this bar features interactive special effects blended with classic Disney storytelling to create a watering hole like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. Trader Sam’s serves a mix of signature cocktails with awesome names like the Hippopotamai Tai and the Mosquito Mojito. They also offer light bites perfect for sharing and offer live music in the evenings.
An Immersive Swimming Pool Experience – If you’re looking to spend some time lounging by the pool than I can’t think of a better place than the Disneyland Hotel. A replica of the original Mark 1 Monorail Cars sits at each entrance of the waterslide entrances and “Disneyland” is spelled out in familiar block letters in this water play area. Guests glide through the cars as they twist and turn their ways through the slides. The larger of the two slides sits 26 feet high and stretches 187 feet. The second slide is 13 feet high and 112 feet long. For those travelling with tiny tots, the area also includes a third mini slide that sits just 3 1/2 feet high and is 19 feet long. In addition, the four-foot deep D-Ticket pool offers a shaded area to cool off and sits next to the new monorail water play areas.
The pool area also features Minnie and Mickey Mouse-themed outdoor spas as well as 6 new cabanas for guests to unwind complete with flat screen TV’s, refrigerators, safe, phone and ceiling fans.
Guest Rooms: Each of the guest rooms at the Disneyland Hotel features exquisite touches including beds with light-up headboards that depict a carved representation of Sleeping Beauty Castle. Each of the headboards features fiber optics to create a magical fireworks display and also a touch of music including the song “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” added in.
Themed Suites – For those looking for a VIP experience like no other, the Disneyland Hotel also offers a collection of themed suites including a Mickey Mouse Penthouse, a Pirates of the Caribbean Suite, an Adventureland Suite and The Big Thunder Suite fashioned after the much-loved Frontierland coaster. Each of these options are big on Disney-theming and offer multiple rooms, large square footage and lots of extra special amenities.
