More of the magic is returning! The phased reopening of the Disneyland Resort moves another step forward as the Disneyland Hotel, Disneyland Resort’s original hotel, reopens on July 2, 2021 with limited capacity. You can make room reservations now for your next memorable vacation at this landmark AAA Four Diamond hotel, immersed in the magic of Disney day and night!
Staying in the Fantasy Tower is enchanting, where the nostalgia of Disneyland, touches of pixie dust and “hidden” Mickeys meld with the hotel’s mid-century modern design. Initially, the Fantasy Tower will be the first Disneyland Hotel tower to reopen. In all guest rooms, one of my favorite features is the headboard that lights up with fireworks and plays, “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes.” It’s so special!
During the closure, the upholstery and fabrics throughout the guest rooms, lobbies and meeting rooms were refreshed and updated. The guest rooms now feature a fun new fireworks pattern in the carpet and upgraded platform beds to help maximize storage. The corridor flooring features new patterns inspired by the art of Mary Blair with graphic elements recalling the park lands each of the towers are named for.
During your vacation, stroll the Disneyland Hotel’s gorgeous grounds, take a cool ride down the Monorail waterslides, swim in themed pools, take a dip in either of the Mickey and Minnie spa whirlpools, relax in a cabana* or at the pool bar, or get even more steps in at the fitness center!
If you’re yearning for some yummy nibbles during your hotel stay, make a date at Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar, Tangaroa Terrace Tropical Bar & Grill or the Coffee House. We recommend using the mobile order service on the Disneyland app** for added convenience at Tangaroa Terrace and the Coffee House.
Also, don’t forget, select restaurants in the Downtown Disney District also provide delivery services. For added convenience, guests of all Disneyland Resort hotels can scan QR codes from their in-room TV to access the links to those restaurants’ delivery webpages and order food and beverages that can be delivered to Disneyland Resort hotel lobbies.***
Planning to visit the theme parks during your stay? The Disneyland Hotel is ideally situated just steps from Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure park, as well as the gateway of the Downtown Disney District.
Remember that all guests ages 3 and up need both a valid ticket and theme park reservation for the same day and same park to enter the park they want to visit.**** Theme park reservations need to be made in advance, and they’re limited and subject to availability.
You can also use your hotel confirmation number to view the latest reservation availability for theme parks. Be sure to have a valid ticket to book your theme park reservation. Keep in mind: a hotel reservation does not guarantee theme park access, and you’ll need to link your park tickets to a Disney account to make a separate theme park reservation. If you do not have an applicable theme park reservation confirmation and a valid ticket, you will not be granted access to the theme parks. Remember that appropriate face coverings are required for all guests ages 2 and older throughout the resort.
And as always, visit Disneyland.com for the latest details and everything else you need to know before you go!
We can’t wait to welcome you back to the magic of the Disneyland Hotel!
