On Property Accommodations – Part 1 Disneyland

I spent a lot of time talking about places to go and things to do when you are at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.  This week, I’m going to focus on something just as important….a place to sleep.  Disneyland and Walt Disney World both provide a variety of on-property accommodations.  Given its vast size, Walt Disney World has a lot more options than Disneyland.  I will focus on Walt Disney World later this week.  Today, I will focus on the three Disneyland on-property accommodations.  I will go from the oldest property to the newest.

For full disclosure, I have not stayed at any of these properties.  My only trip to Disneyland was back in 1984 and I stayed off-property with my family.

Starting with the old Disneyland Park resort hotel, let’s visit

Above is a panorama view of the Disneyland Hotel which was originally built by Jack Wrather in 1955.  The hotel was purchased by Disney in 1984 and underwent a massive renovation in 1999 into its present form.

The resort has 990 rooms and the theme is Classic Disney.  Standard rooms can accommodate up to five guests with suites available for larger groups.
