What are Disneyland hotels?
Disneyland hotels are the Disneyland owned and operated hotels located on Disneyland property. They include:
Why stay at one of them?
Basically, you're getting the full Disneyland experience by staying at one of the "on-property" hotels by Disneyland. For information about off-property hotels, see Other Hotels.
3 reasons to stay On Property:
For the most amazing Disney experience, book Disney's Grand Californian.
"The Grand" is the most upscale of all the hotels by Disneyland. It has a rich, swanky feel, a 5-star restaurant, a private entrance to California Adventure and Downtown Disney, gorgeous pools, a full-service spa, Disney bedtime stories, Mickey wake up calls, and more. It's expensive but you'll feel like royalty.
Recently remodeled, the Disneyland Hotel is more traditional Disney-themed than the Grand.
If you're not planning to use the Grand's upscale dining or spa features and enjoy more kid-oriented features like the pool, and want to spend (a little) less money, stay here. It's very close to Disneyland and you'll still get Disney-themed everything. It has a great pool with a pirate ship, slide, and hot tub that kids would prefer over the Grand's any day. Dine at Goofy's Kitchen for a great buffet and personal meet-n-greets with Disney characters at your table.
To spend the least amount and still be on-property, choose Paradise Pier.
It's the least expensive on-property hotel and closer than any off-property hotel. It has a pool with a waterslide and of course you'll get that Disneyland charm, with a big Goofy statue in the lobby and such. The rooms are clean and comfortable and many have a view of the California Adventure Park, which is especially pretty at night.
