Our Disneyland Stay

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.
 We had a standard room with 2 queen beds and a day bed.
 And a tiny bathroom that had some cute Disney touches!
The pool and monorail themed waterslides were a hit with our family!

The Disneyland Hotel operates three restaurants. 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!
 I had the Moroccan Spiced King Salmon.
Reagan and I split the 24 Layer Chocolate Cake with Mint Chocolate Chip Gelato.  We couldn't finish it!
 Mr. PS had the Creme Brûlée topped with a homemade donut!!  He finished it!
Of course, no trip to the Disneyland Hotel is complete without a stop at Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar...a Disney classic!
Overall I think this met our needs.  We walked through the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa which is newer and reminds me of the Wilderness Lodge at Disney World and thought that might have been a nice option too. We did not venture over to Paradise Pier which is considered a more budget friendly option.

I'll be back tomorrow to share our days in the parks!
