There are so many great hotel choices for a Disneyland vacation. We absolutely love staying at any of the three Disneyland Resort Hotel properties, though. There's just nothing that beats staying in the middle of the magic! The Paradise Pier Hotel at Disneyland is one of the three on-property hotels and a family-favorite. For this week’s hotel spotlight, we’ll be turning all eyes on the Paradise Pier Hotel to see what makes it such a fantastic hotel option.
First, let’s look at the amenities you’ll receive just from staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel:
Location: Remember when we mentioned staying in the magic? When you stay at a Disneyland Resort Hotel, you’re only minutes away from the fun of the parks. Plus, early mornings and late nights are much easier when you’re just a few steps from your room – meaning you’ll be able to take advantage of any and all park hours. You’ll also be only a few short steps from Downtown Disney during your stay. Shopping? Check. Entertainment? Check. Dining? More options than you could try in an entire stay, so definitely check. It’s easy to see why just a stay at a Disneyland Resort Hotel is a vacation in itself.
Extra Magic Hour: All guests of the Disneyland Resort Hotels can take advantage of Extra Magic Hour each morning of their stay. With this added bonus, you’ll be able to enter the park an hour earlier than the general public. Valid theme park admission is required and the schedule changes daily, so make sure to check before you head to the parks. Staying at the Paradise Pier Hotel at Disneyland, or either of the other Disneyland Resort Hotels, is the ONLY way to get into Disney California Adventure Park early. The extra hour of fun is especially helpful during busier times like the Holidays or when new attractions open (we’re looking at your Pixar Pier).
Special Perks: On top of the location and Extra Magic Hour, there are special perks for staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel. They include packages purchased in the park being sent directly to your room, preferred access to select reservations and even scheduling a wake-up call from Mickey himself. The benefit of resort-wide amenities is also a plus, since you’ll be able to take advantage of features found at each of the Disneyland Resort Hotels. That means if you stay at the Paradise Pier Hotel at Disneyland, you’ll still be able to use the Mandara Spa at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa or rent a poolside cabana at the Disneyland Hotel. Talk about a relaxing vacation!
Now, let’s look at the additional amenities you can expect when you stay at the Paradise Pier Hotel at Disneyland:
Beach Theme: You’ll feel like you are steps away from the boardwalk at the Paradise Pier Hotel. All the decor, furniture and artwork has been themed to match beachfront hotels of the 1920s. While you’ll feel like you’re stepping back in time, modern amenities are there to ensure families of this day and age have a relaxing stay.
Large Rooms: The seaside-inspired rooms found at the Paradise Pier Hotel at Disneyland are some of the largest among the Disneyland Resort Hotels. In fact, most of the rooms have two queens and a small sofa-bed. Not all rooms offer this, so you’ll want to make sure you request this layout at time of booking. Keep in mind that families of five will have higher priority for these larger rooms. The hotel also offers Premium View Rooms that offer views of Disney California Adventure Park.
Rooftop Pool: Imagine relaxing in cool pool waters as fireworks erupt above you and the sounds of the show filter in all around you. That dream can be a reality when you stay at the Paradise Pier Hotel at Disneyland. The Paradise Pool is held on the roof of the third-floor terrace and has something for everyone. You can whoosh down the California Streamin’ Slide, splash in the Children’s Pool, relax in the Paradise Spa whirlpool or take a break and eat at The Sand Bar. It’s the perfect place for day and night, especially on the select nights that the Disneyland fireworks show runs. You’ll be able to watch from the pool as the sky comes alive and the music from the spectacular is piped onto the deck. It will be a night to remember!
Dining: The Paradise Pier Hotel at Disneyland offers unique dining opportunities for guests. You can enjoy drinks and sandwiches at The Sand Bar near the pool or hang ten with some yummy food at the Surfside Lounge in the lobby. Our favorite has to be Disney’s PCH Grill, though. The grill offers a Surf’s Up! Breakfast with Mickey and Friends each morning and is one of the only Character Dining locations to include Mickey. The PCH Grill also offers a Beachside Bonfire Dinner Buffet each night, with themed meals for the holidays available (reservations required). No matter which you choose, we know your taste buds will be in for a treat.
Entertainment: Lastly, the Paradise Pier Hotel offers fantastic entertainment for guests. Kids can play all day in the arcade or watch classic Disney movies at the Paradise Theater. Fitness enthusiasts will enjoy the high-tech fitness center and daily Get Up & Go Power Walk that runs through Disney California Adventure Park. Movies are shown under the stars on select nights and Disneyland Park trivia challenges are held daily. No matter the age or size of your family, there’s something fun for you at the Paradise Pier Hotel.
