There are a few options when it comes to staying at Disneyland. There are three official resort hotels and lots of "good neighbor" hotels too.
We knew that we wanted to stay on property so that I could easily access the runDisney start and finish lines. The three options to stay on property are the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, the Disneyland Hotel and the Paradise Pier Hotel. We chose the Disneyland Hotel which is made up of three buildings and connects to the Disney Convention Center.
Our room was in the Frontier building which sits at the rear of the property. We were on the 8th floor with a garden/pool view.
The pool and monorail themed waterslides were a hit with our family!
Tangaroa Terrace is your typical Disney quick service option, perfect spot to grab your Mickey waffles before hitting the park!
Goofy's Kitchen offers buffet style character dining for breakfast and dinner. Steakhouse 55 (entrance below) is a fine/signature dining option that serves both breakfast and dinner. We enjoyed dinner there on our last evening. The service and food were excellent!
Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar...a Disney classic!
I'll be back tomorrow to share our days in the parks!
