To Stay Onsite or Not to Stay Onsite? That is THE Question… Well, Not Really

There is nothing more magical than staying in the heart of the magic at a Disneyland® Resort. If getting the full Disneyland experience is crucial to your vacation enjoyment, then booking a stay at one of the three Disneyland® Resort Hotels is the key to the magic! A Disneyland® Resort hotel room comes with full Disney immersion, extended park hours and exclusive family activities.

The Disneyland® Resort is located in the middle of a bustling city and is surrounded by local hotels and motels. While many of the surrounding hotels and motels are a little more cost effective, staying on property has quite a few benefits.

People say it a lot, ourselves included, but there really is something to say about the magic of Disney. When guests go to Disney, they want to be immersed in the atmosphere, lost in the surroundings, and transported to another place. If you want to feel 100% enveloped in the magic of the Disneyland Resort, then it is important to stay on property. At a Disneyland® Resort, you are away from the realistic world and surrounded by hidden Mickey’s. There is just something to be said about falling asleep in the middle of the magic.

There is a special entrance to Disney’s California Adventure from the Grand Californian Resort. Imagine your very own park entrance! Not staying at the Grand Californian Resort? No worries, both park entrances are just a short walk away.

While, the short walk is just that – short, sometimes it can feel a bit longer when you are hauling your park souvenirs back. Guests of the Disneyland hotels can have purchases they make in the resort sent back to their rooms.

An amazing privilege that goes unnoticed is the fact that you can charge resort purchases back to the room. Some guests love the convenience and safety of not having to worry about cards or cash. Just like any other card purchase, do not forget to set a budget for yourself or your family if you need one as those Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars will add up eventually.

Speaking about privileges, for those water bugs out there the pools at a Disneyland® Resort are just as magical as the theme park. There are three gorgeous pools at the Grand Californian beautifully themed in a redwood setting. At the Disneyland hotel, you will find the famous monorail pool, complete with slides and a playground. One word – iconic. Paradise Pier Hotel has a rooftop pool with a slide from which you can view the fireworks with the musical accompaniment. Listen, we are not exactly “pool” people and these pools are pretty darn awesome to us as well!

If the pool themes are not enough to grab your attention, let’s see about the most magical views of the theme parks. The Grand Californian theme park views will give you views of Disney’s California Adventure, while the Disneyland Hotel will offer fun views of Downtown Disney. Now, if you are like us – the view is not all that important as we do not spend much time in the room. Heigh ho heigh ho it’s to the parks we go!

One of the most MAICAL perks for staying at a Disneyland® Resort are the extra magic hours. Every day of your stay, you will be allowed to enter one of the parks one hour early. Imagine having a minimal wait for Radiator Springs Racers or the Matterhorn Mountain? Maybe you simply want amazing pictures with few guests in the background. Whatever your reason, extra magic hours are totally worth it! Worried about being too tired later? Leave the park, walk back to your Disneyland Resort, take a nap in your room or rest at the pool and then head on back to the park – talk about perfection!
