Planning your Disneyland Vacation can be a fun but also a stressful time for a family. Finding the right hotel to stay in while enjoying the sights and sounds of Disneyland can make or break a vacation. Many times when people are planning a trip/vacation they often use the axiom that they are just going to be sleeping in the hotel and why should they worry about the quality of it or how it appears. However, this is quite often a big mistake some people make.
There are many exciting and wonderful hotel options when planning your Disneyland Vacation. Of course, there are the 3 Disney hotels: Paradise Pier, Disneyland Hotel and the Grand Californian. These hotels, while costly, can be a wonderful experience all in their own.
The Paradise Pier hotel is the least costly of the 3 Disney properties. This hotel is decorated in the style from the old beach boardwalk days of California yesteryear. The rooms are accentuated in this same manner with many different colors and a really upbeat and light theme. This hotel is located right near the Downtown Disney area so shopping and other food choices are definitely abundant while you are staying at this hotel. There is a wonderful swimming pool for the family to enjoy and depending on the type of room you pay for you get some nice views of the entire resort from your hotel room window. This makes for some really wonderful pictures of your Disneyland Vacation.
The Disneyland Hotel is actually the first hotel that was built on the property. Over the years it has been refurbished and renovated to the wonderful structure that it is today. The rooms and much of the hotel are decorated in the classic Disney fashion from when the theme park originally opened and also include many new elements from today as well. This property is just at the end of Downtown Disney and visitors at this hotel have easy access to the Monorail that takes guests quickly into Disneyland proper. Staying at this hotel will bring many fond memories for the whole family on your Disneyland Vacation.
The Grand Californian is, by far, the most fancy of all the Disney Hotel properties. This hotel is actually part of the California Adventure park and many of the rooms face this park and can see many of the attractions and the well lit property at night. The other side has access right into the heart of downtown Disney and makes a wonderful access point to go shopping and other dining experiences. The hotel itself is designed with a 1900's look of California. Throughout the hotel are darkened wood paneling, a huge fireplace in the lobby where story time is held for children, and enormous lofted ceilings with wood beams spanning across. This is truly a magnificent hotel and the rooms are quite fanciful as well. Also, one would be remiss if it was not added that you can actually enter the California Adventure park from this hotel which creates an added benefit for those staying there. This hotel is one that will create a memorable stay on your Disneyland Vacation.
This is just a brief look at all the hotels of the Disneyland property in Anaheim, California. The quality of these hotels is very good since Disney prides itself on their customer satisfaction and reputation as a family oriented resort. Choosing any of these hotels will help create the type of Disneyland Vacation that a family can reminisce about for years to come.
