DLR Hotels

This year, the holidays at the Disneyland Resort are even merrier during the Diamond Celebration. This is a great time to visit the parks as well as stay at one of the three resort hotels. Here are some of the highlights of staying at the Disneyland Resort hotels during the holidays:

DLR Hotels

Christmas Tree at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel: The Christmas tree in Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel lobby is inspired by the sea. It is adorned with blue, green and silver ornaments, and also features shells, starfish and even a few surfboards!

Carolers: Every evening until December 25th, guests can enjoy the joyful sound of carolers at each resort hotel. Nothing better than carols to put you in the holiday spirit!

Holiday Shopping: The Fantasia Shop at the Disneyland Hotel and Acorns Gifts & Goods at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa have a fantastic selection of Disneyland Resort souvenirs and holiday-themed merchandise! Pick up a gift for that special someone, or even yourself!

Letters to Santa: For guests staying at the hotels, you can head over to Pinocchio’s Workshop to write letters to Santa. Located at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, cast members have all the supplies you need to write—they’ll even mail your letters to the North Pole! It’s open from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. every day through December 24.

Lobby at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa: Like some of the hotels at Walt Disney World, the Grand Californian’s lobby features a “Grand” New Gingerbread House during the holidays. If the smell of the gingerbread house gets you hungry, you can get your own gingerbread cookie and hot chocolate from the refreshment stand located in the southeast corner of the lobby. The hotel’s Craftsman-inspired decor extends to the holiday decorations-especially the soaring Christmas tree lit with “arts and crafts” motif lanterns.

Steps Away from the Parks: Staying at one of the Disneyland Resort hotels provides guests with easy, convenient access to both parks. You won’t want to miss “A Christmas Fantasy” parade at Disneyland park and “World of Color – Winter Dreams” at Disney California Adventure park.
