What we love

  • Exclusive theme park benefits, including Extra Magic Hour early entry into one park each day of your stay with valid park admission
  • Special hotel entrance directly into Disney California Adventure® Park for all Disney Resort Hotel guests
  • Resort hotel guests get priority reservations for select restaurants and experiences, including Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, Anna & Elsa's Boutique, Blue Bayou and Carthay Circle Restaurant (no more than 60 days and no fewer than 2 days in advance of your arrival)
  • Craftsman-style hotel reflects the grandeur of Northern California's early 20th Century Arts and Crafts era
  • 190-foot Redwood Pool slide is designed around the stump of a fallen redwood
  • Tadpoles can go on a scavenger hunt inside the hotel
  • On-site Mandara Spa offers separate male and female sauna and steam rooms
  • Breakfast with some lesser-known, classic Disney characters at Storytellers Cafe Award-winning Napa Rose restaurant makes a romantic date-night destination
  • Some standard rooms sleep up to 5 adults
  • Abutting the Downtown Disney District that offers shopping and dining
  • Kids activity center at Pinnocchio's Workshop

Keep in Mind

  • With only three Disney Parks Hotels, availability is limited and prices reflect that
  • As the grande dame of the Disneyland hotels, it is one of the priciest hotels—if not the priciest hotel—in Anaheim
  • Bed configurations include bunk beds and trundle beds; if you have a preference, make a request
  • The hotel charges $25 per night for self-parking
  • The hotel charges $35 per night for valet parking

Notable Facts

  • The reception area is based on the interior of the Swedenborgian Church in San Francisco
  • The hotel was designed by Peter Dominick, who also designed Disney's Wilderness Lodge and Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge
  • It was inspired by the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite National Park and The Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone National Park"

Frog Family Tips

  • Use the dedicated hotel entrance to Disney California Adventure® Park to get over to Radiator Springs Racers—the most popular ride in the park!
  • Take a tour of the Arts and Crafts artifacts in the lobby and dining areas during an hour-long tour
  • Budget at least an hour to an hour and a half if you take Disneyland transportation from LAX
  • Request a higher floor for less potential noise from foot traffic

Best For

  • Families who want the ultimate Disneyland experience, who have young children and/or plan to come back to the hotel for breaks from the parks, and who want to be as close to California Adventure as possible
