    Disneyland Hotel Pools & Amenities

    Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim offers entertainment for everyone in your family. You’ll splash around in some of the coolest pools in Anaheim.

    The Disneyland Hotel has one of our favorite pool areas! When you stay at the Disneyland Hotel, you'll have access to several unique pool areas. The first includes two water slides that are themed after the Monorail itself and reside under a vintage Disneyland sign.

    The nostalgia continues in the E-Ticket Pool where you'll find signs of theme park tickets from years past. Plus, D-Ticket Pool is perfect for anyone looking to swim laps.

    You can also soak up some inspiration along with some sun at the new Palette Pool—a mid-century modern hangout for the entire family. This area will open along with the Villas at Disneyland Hotel later in 2023.

    You can just imagine all the fun your family would have at any of these pool areas!

    Disneyland Hotel Dining

    Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim is home to Goofy's Kitchen. This Premium Character Dining location will let you dance around with Chef Goofy and his pals while enjoying wacky foods like peanut butter and jelly pizza.

    Thinking of something more casual? The Tangaroa Terrace and Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar both offer Polynesian twists on American fare and drinks. There's nothing quite like enjoying a meal under tiki torches after all. And you're only a short walk from all the dining in Downtown Disney if none of those options pique your interest.

    We Recommend… Our most popular package for Disneyland Resort vacations comes with your hotel stay and 3 day park hopper tickets. That way you can explore both theme parks and have extra time to see and do all those extra favorites like shows, entertainment and popular rides.

    So, why should you stay at the Disneyland Hotel? Because everything we've highlighted above and more. The Disneyland Hotel is truly a magical experience that will make your Disneyland vacation unforgettable.
