As a Disneyland Resort hotel guest, you’ll enjoy special activities, offers and convenience! Whether you’re vacationing in the Craftsman grandeur of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, the mid-century modern classic of the Disneyland Hotel or the seaside whimsy of Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, the benefits are unmatched and truly magical. Conveniently just steps away, you’ll enjoy early admission to one park every day of your hotel stay with Extra Magic Hour and other enchanted experiences such as character greetings in the lobby and Disney-themed elements in the guest rooms.*
Stay, Play and Save
Save up to 15 percent on select rooms at the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort on most Sunday through Thursday nights from July 23 – September 26, 2019. Book now through September 25, 2019! Save up to 10 percent on standard room types and 15 percent on premium room types at the Disneyland Hotel and Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.**
This offer is ideal for an end-of-summer getaway, or to add an overnight stay during the first few weeks of the Halloween season, which begins September 6 at the Disneyland Resort.
Cool Pools to Cool Down
As a hotel guest, soak up some thrills and splash down on the water slides or go for a relaxing dip in the hotel pools before or after your day in the parks and the Downtown Disney District.
Overlooking the Disneyland Hotel pools, Tangaroa Terrace Tropical Bar & Grill is an escape to a tropical South Seas hideaway featuring lit torches, music and an express menu with a Polynesian flair! The restaurant also offers a marketplace for grab-and-go pastries and snacks, specialty coffees, pineapple Dole Whip soft serve, Dole Whip floats and Dole Whip floats with a splash of rum, plus a full bar of island cocktails.
Also be sure to try the brand-new poolside lounge, GCH Craftsman Bar at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. Expanding on the same Arts & Crafts-style as the hotel, this setting is lovely and comfortable, with shareable dishes such as the Shawarma Chicken Skewers, Maine Lobster Quesadilla and Waffle Churro Sundae. Over at the bar, California wines, local craft beers and garden-inspired drinks are very refreshing.***
Fantastic Fireworks Viewing
At Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, The Sand Bar is a new rooftop eatery and a great place to watch fireworks of Disneyland park. Open to the hotel guests and the general public, the menu features Artisan Pizzas, Duck Confit Tacos, the much “wowed” about Spaghetti Burger and Confetti Dessert Nachos, along with signature cocktails and mocktails.***
At the Disneyland Hotel, if you upgrade to the concierge level, you can also enjoy fantastic views of the fireworks from the E-Ticket Club located on the eleventh floor of the Adventure Tower. The elegant setting is great to enjoy light snacks and relax during the day. In the evening, the club is perfect for viewing spectacular fireworks with music piped in throughout.
Hotel Guests Have Fun and Save at Pop-Up Disney
It’s your last chance to experience Pop-Up Disney! A Mickey Celebration before it ends on September 2, 2019! At this must-see exhibit, step inside nine different imaginatively themed rooms where multi-dimensional art and vibrant, visual displays salute Disney’s most recognizable icon, Mickey Mouse. Overnight guests of the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort can now save up to 40% on tickets. During your hotel stay, ask the Front Desk for your special coupon code for the Pop-Up Disney! web site and the discount will be applied when purchasing tickets.****
