I absolutely love the original Disneyland Hotel because it is full of history and quintessential Disney magic and classic throw backs. I am sharing everything you need to know about the original Disneyland Hotel, along with details you don’t want to miss. Plus, how you can book a stay in one of the Villas at Disneyland Hotel, now open.


Disneyland Hotel

The Disneyland Hotel Quick Details

The Disneyland Hotel is made up of four towers overlooking Disneyland Resort—Adventure, Fantasy and Frontier, named after the three original lands in Disneyland Park. In addition, Villas at Disneyland Hotel is the forth tower, Discovery, with areas for all Disneyland Hotel guests to enjoy.


Disneyland Hotel grounds


As the original on property hotel, Disneyland Hotel is an iconic family vacation resort. Featuring 973 rooms with classic Disney elements at every turn including artfully crafted light up headboards showcasing Sleeping Beauty Castle complete with fiber optic fireworks to help you fall asleep each night.

A unique collection of themed suites are also available including Mickey Mouse Penthouse, Pirates of the Caribbean Suite, Adventureland Suite, Big Thunder Suite and Fairy Tale Suite. I have had a chance to spend time in a couple of those suites which I share more about below.

What time is Disneyland Hotel check in?

You may check in anytime, but rooms are available after 3:00 pm. Be sure to arrive early if you plan to go into the parks on the day of your arrival and utilize Early Entry. I prefer to check in at the front desk rather than on the Disneyland app, I’ve most recently found (when doing a comparison) that checking in at the front desk may allow you to secure a room earlier.

The front desk will issue you room keys to access the pool and Early Entry (valid theme park admission required). If you need to hold your luggage at the hotel, Bell Services can take care of that for you as well.

What is the Disneyland Hotel address? 

The Disneyland Hotel is located at 1150 Magic Way, Anaheim, CA 92802. It’s on the west side of the Disneyland Resort and super close to Downtown Disney and Monorail boarding. 

What is the Disneyland Hotel phone number? 

To contact the Disneyland Hotel directly, call 714-778-6600.

Want a late check out?

Normal hotel check out time is 11:00 am, but late check outs are permitted by request and may require an additional fee. Simply call the front desk for more information. If you just need a place to store your luggage after check out, bell services can handle that for you at no additional cost. 

Disneyland Hotel Lobby & Towers

Anyone with affection for Disney history will enjoy staying in this hotel and wandering through the public areas with many points of interest. Inside you can explore art displays and seasonal exhibits. I want to start first with the newest tower, because it is absolutely stunning. 


Disneyland Villa Hotel Tower


The fourth tower is Discovery, Villas at Disneyland Hotel and is a Disney Vacation Club property. I was skeptical of this addition but now that it is complete it truly feels like it makes Disneyland Hotel whole.

Outdoors, there are tons of gardens and walking paths to wander.

For Disneyland Hotel guests you’ll check in at the Fantasy tower, giant tea cups await in the lobby, along with a TV and seating area for kids. A gift shop and more welcome you to this land of Fantasy.


Disneyland Hotel teacups


We loved taking family photos around the property early in the morning and had lots of time to explore without a rush.


Disneyalnd Hotel rose garden


We had a lot of fun in the Rose Garden, where they host weddings, vow renewals and private events. Here we are practicing for our vow renewal someday ;).

Want more information on Disneyland weddings? All the details for planning a fairy tale Disneyland wedding here. We stayed in the Adventure Tower which is closest to Downtown Disney. You can request specific towers at check-in, but all are lovely and have the same in-room decor. 


Disneyland Hotel Adventure Tower


My next best tower to request is the Fantasy Tower, simply because of proximity to the parks. The Frontier Tower is the farthest away, but has great access to the famous Disneyland Hotel swimming pool. 


Disneyland Hotel Frontier Tower


When I checked in early, there were some Frontier Tower rooms available, but I opted to wait for a room in the Adventure Tower instead. You really can’t go wrong with any of the towers onsite and I plan to stay in all of them! 

And back to the Villas at Disneyland Hotel real quick. This fourth tower is on the most west side of the Disneyland Resort property. Just look at the colorful, mid-century modern, Mary Blair inspired lobby. 


Disney Villa Disneyland Lobby


The 12-story tower has a wide range of themed accommodations designed to sleep anywhere from two to 12 guests, perfectly blending the magic of Walt Disney Animation Studio classics with many of the essential comforts of home. It is beautiful!

Disneyland Hotel Parking

If you’re staying at the Disneyland Hotel, expect to pay the $40 nightly fee for self-parking, with valet service at $70 per night, per vehicle. The parking lot has a secure entrance and is easily accessible throughout your stay. We pulled up to the front lobby to unload our luggage before parking at self-parking. 


Disneyland Hotel Parking


Disneyland Hotel parking deal: use self-parking and save $30 each night over valet. Make it even more convenient by dropping off your party and luggage at the main entrance while you drive to self-parking. The other adult can get a spot in line to check in, saving you a bit more time as well.

Remember, if you’re dining at select hotel table-service restaurants, and not staying at the hotel, you will receive 3 hours free parking from Goofy’s Kitchen, including character dining, with validation or 5 hours free parking with validation.


Disneyland Hotel grounds


If you are visiting the theme parks only, do not park in Disneyland Hotel parking. Read more details on parking at Disneyland Resort here.

Disneyland Hotel Exclusive Access

One of my favorite perks of staying onsite is Early Entry. Guests who are staying at the Disneyland Hotel get access to Disneyland Park and California Adventure Park an entire hour earlier than the general public. 


Disneyland Pool umbrellas


How do I get into the theme parks during Early Entry? Use your hotel room key to scan at the park entry point in the morning. You may also be asked to show your reservation on the Disneyland app. Your entire hotel party may enter the park with you (with one hotel room key), provided your room key dates are valid and everyone has theme park admission.

Can guests of the Disneyland Hotel use the Grand Californian entrance to California Adventure? No, this entrance is only available for Grand Californian Hotel guests with valid theme park admission in the morning. Later in the afternoon, Disney cast members may allow anyone with valid theme park admission to use the entrance as well.


Disneyland castle summer


Disneyland Hotel exclusive park hours deal: Guest staying at the Disneyland Hotel get access to Early Entry, like I mentioned above. Early Entry is a huge perk of staying on-site at Disneyland Resort. Early Entry is offered each day of your visit, with valid theme park admission. Read all about Early Entry here. While this deal isn’t exactly a discount, it does get you more time in the parks and maximizes your cost-per-hour ratio. 

Disneyland Hotel bonus access! Don’t forget, guests staying at Disney properties can sign up for an early morning power walk through the park before it even opens!

The Disneyland Hotel Rooms

The rooms at Disneyland Hotel are exactly what I wanted to see and feel, being completely soaked up in the magic and wrapped in the Disney bubble during my family vacation.  The various rooms we’ve stayed at are always fresh, clean, comfortable and convenient.

Want to know what’s even more magical about staying at a true original? The headboards! Flip the switch and it lights up with fireworks and the tune of “a dream is a wish your heart makes.” I may have also used that soft sounding music to wake my kids up each morning :). It’s magical beyond belief. Bonus Tip: Print your Disneyland vacation itinerary with step by step ride guides here.

All photos of the Mickey Mouse Penthouse Suite are my own. The others are courtesy of Disneyland Resort.

Disneyland Hotel Mickey Mouse Penthouse Suite

I’ve only been inside the Mickey Mouse Penthouse Suite, not stayed there. It was incredible to visit for a bit and snap some photos. 


mickey penthouse kid room


This kids room was so magical. A comfy round bed above, a TV and entertainment area and an adorable Mickey Sorcerer loung area.

And look at this kids bathroom! It’s one of 3 in this 2 bedroom suite.


mickey mouse bathroom disneyland suite


The main bedroom is stunning and tastefully decorated with a bit of Mickey vibes to it.

Disneyland Hotel Pirates of the Caribbean Suite

I have now been inside both the Mickey Mouse Penthouse Suite and the Pirates of the Caribbean Suite. My friends at Get Away Today allowed me to share this look inside with you! It was incredible to visit for a bit and snap some photos. 


Pirates Suite Disneyland Hotel living room


Every corner of this suite is decorated right on point with a Pirates of the Caribbean theme. You’ll even hear the chime of the doorbell tuned to “A Pirate’s Life for Me!.” 


Pirates Suite Disneyland Hotel Primary Room


The primary suite has an incredible canopy bed, situated high above the sea (step stool included in your stay). Along with a lounge area and en-suite bathroom. 


Pirates Suite primary room mirror


The entire Pirates suite overlooks the main pool area of the Disneyland Hotel high above it all on the 11th floor. 


Pirates Suite Primary bathroom


When you’re looking for an incredible getaway, don’t forget to bring those little pirates along. They can make this extra bedroom home on the high seas.

Captain Jack Sparrow made sure there were plenty of amenities here including three total bathrooms and a wet bar for serving up rum or whatever you fancy!

There’s only ONE Pirates of the Caribbean Suite on property at the Disneyland Hotel.

Villas at Disneyland Hotel Rooms

The whole family will enjoy the comforts of home in the one- and two-bedroom villas at The Villas at Disneyland Hotel, which sleep up to five and nine guests, respectively. With the magical touch of either “Fantasia” or “The Princess and the Frog” themes.

Tiana Room Disneyland villa


Each villa will make you feel at home with a washer and dryer, spacious living areas, and a full-size kitchen.


Princess and the Frog Room Disneyland Villas


The Studios are also well appointed with gorgeous decor, stunning colors and lighting and all that Disney magic. 


Sleeping Beauty Studio Disneyland Hotel


Guests can spend time at the colorful and modern new pool at The Villas at Disneyland Hotel and the area features a breezy bar and grill, Palm Breeze situated between the Villas pool and the Monorail slide area.

I was there on day one of Palm Breeze opening and we grabbed a couple of snacks including beignets and the adorable Mickey-shaped dipping sauces that accompany them.


Palm Breeze dipping sauce


Palm Breeze is open to anyone visiting Disneyland Resort for drinks and bites to eat, but remember you’ll need to be a guest of the hotel to use the pool deck.

Disneyland Hotel Pool

Now that you have your feet wet in the Villas pool area (open to all Disneyland Hotel guests) let’s dive into a bit more luxury at the classic Disneyland pool area.


Disneyland Hotel monorail slide


Guests often rate the Disneyland Hotel pool as their favorite of all the pools at the Disneyland Resort. It pays tribute to the old ticket books from Disneyland’s earlier era. Please note you may be asked to show your room key and/or reservation to access the pool where you’ll receive a wristband for each guest. 


Disneyland hotel pool


There are three pool and water areas within the center of the Disneyland Hotel: E-ticket, D-ticket and Monorail slides with splash area. There are also hot tubs, free life jackets and poolside cabanas. 


Disneyland d ticket pool


There’s tons of lounge chairs and umbrellas throughout the pool area, but you’ll want to arrive early if you plan on spending the entire day at the pool. I also noticed the pool was much less crowded during the evening hours. 


Disneyland Hotel cabana pod

Disneyland Hotel Pool Cabanas

We went all in and booked a full day cabana at the Disneyland Hotel, which you can schedule 60 days in advance. The cabana was perfect for our family and we stayed there until the very last minute. Note the cabanas are getting refresh in late 2023, early 2024 and I can’t wait to try them once they reopen.


Disneyland pool rental


It was also the 4th of July, and I knew poolside spots would be scarce. If you’re planning an entire day by the pool (and you totally should!), I suggest getting a cabana on the day you check in or out, to maximize the fun and magic. 


Disneyland pool cabana


Your Disneyland Hotel pool cabana comes stocked with:

  • Plenty of seating with a couch, loveseat and two loungers.
  • Fresh towels, sunglasses cleaner and a small bottle of sunscreen.
  • Shade and sun under your private cabana and a large umbrella out front.
  • Complimentary fruit tray and bottles of water upon arrival. 
  • Dedicated cast members for towel refreshing or food and drink orders.
  • Mini fridge, TV, safe and ceiling fan. 


Disneyland cabana

How much does a Disneyland cabana cost?

Poolside cabanas at the Disneyland Hotel are around $575 for a full day (9:30am-6:00pm) and $425 for a half day (9:30am-1:30pm or 2:00pm-6:00pm).  You can book at 60 days out by calling 714-778-6600. 


Disneyland hotel poolside


My kids even took naps inside the cabana! We ordered lunch, played in the water, rode the Monorail slides and had an amazing time. Now that I’ve had a taste of cabana life, I probably won’t do it any other way. 


Disneyland e ticket pool


Bonus Tip: Guests staying at the Disneyland Hotel can also use the pool at Paradise Pier Hotel and reserve cabanas at Grand Californian. You cannot access the Grand’s pool, however, unless you have a cabana reservation. 

Disneyland Hotel Dining

There is no shortage of places to eat at the Disneyland Hotel! You’ll find a huge variety of entrees for all meals of the day, including date night options and family friendly fare. 


Goofy's Kitchen entrance


  • Tangaroa Terrace is open for quick bites and Dole Whips!

  • Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar is a favorite for adults on a casual night out. 
  • Palm Breeze as mentioned above near the Villas Discovery Tower.

  • Room service is also available for late meals or snacks.

There are so many reasons to choose the original Disney hotel in Anaheim for your next vacation, I think we’ve only scratched the surface.


Disneyland Hotel grass area


Even though it’s priced higher than most area hotels, the comfort, service and exclusive Disney perks are just some of the reasons why everyone should stay here at least once. Tell us, have you stayed at The Disneyland Hotel?
