My family recently was able to experience the magic of staying at the Disneyland Hotel.  The Disneyland Hotel consists of 3 towers: Adventure Tower, Frontier Tower, and Fantasy Tower.


When you first arrive you will go into the Fantasy Tower to check in.  The Fantasy Tower is named after Fantasy Land and you will see decor that commemorates the attractions within that land: Dumbo, Mad Disneyland Hotel Review- Magic Disneyland HotelHatters Tea Cups, and the Storybook Land. Minnie Mouse and Pluto greeted us while we were in the lobby checking into our room. It was so fun to watch my kids interact with the characters and we didn’t even have to wait in a line!  Also within the Fantasy Tower, you will find a couple gift shops (Fantasia Shop and Small World gift and sundries) and an entrance to the resorts convention center.  The Adventure Tower’s lobby features décor from the Jungle Book and Pirates of the Caribbean, while the Frontier Tower is decorated after Frontier Land. {Heads Up!: The Adventure Tower is located closest to Downtown Disney & the monorail.} Disneyland Hotel Review - Magic Disneyland Hotel

When we walked into our rooms, it was so exciting!  I loved seeing all the Disney touches from Mickey’s gloves as lamps, a picture of Walt walking amongst the Sleeping Beauty’s castle, and the incredible headboard! It featured a large castle with fiber optic fireworks {it even played a song}!

Disneyland Hotel Review - Magic Disneyland HotelDisneyland Hotel has 3 pools the E-Ticket pool, the D-ticket pool, and the Monorail pool in addition to the Mickey and Minnie whirlpools.  My kids favored the Monorail pool as it has 2 water slides for children (and
adults) of all ages to enjoy.  We spent hours at the pools! I loved the comfortable chaise lounges and the quick poolside service for food and drinks! There are private cabanas for rent at each of the pools. They include a fridge stocked with water, 32” flat screen, telephone, safe, couch, extra towels, and 2 chaise lounges. {P.S. If you’re interesting in renting a cabana be sure to mention it to your Me and the Mouse agent!}


Lastly, I loved how the Disneyland Hotel was close to everything: Magic Disneyland Hotel

-Downtown Disney: 2-4 minute walk

-Monorail: 3-8 Minutes

-Grand Californian: 5-10 Minutes

-Front Gates of California Adventure or Magic Kingdom: 10-15 Minutes


I strongly recommend staying at the Disneyland Hotel for your next Disneyland visit!  I can’t wait to take my family again!
