Disneyland Resorts Reopen, Offering Distinctive Benefits to Guests
Yesterday, Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel rejoined the available Disneyland resorts currently open to guests from across the world. With the opening of the iconic Disneyland Hotel on July 2nd, all three on-property resorts will finally welcome guests again. The resorts closed March 14, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
All three resorts offer a range of accommodations and theming, while still mainting the Disney touch, stellar service, and trademark quality. The convenience factor of the three resorts also puts them in a class all their own as they are just a few steps away from the gates of Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure Park and Downtown Disney District.
In fact, Disney’s Grand Californian Resort even features its own entrance and exit to Disney California Adventure Park, home to the brand-new Avengers Campus.
Disney’s Grand Californian & Spa
As a AAA Four Diamond Award-winng resort, Disney’s Grand Californian sets the bar for Disneyland resort stays. It is the area’s flagship hotel.
The design celebrates the 20th century’s Arts & Crafts movement with subtle creative touches to the natural wonders that dominate the Golden State.
Inspired by the Arroyo craftsmen, mission pioneers, and the painters of Plen Air, the hotel’s breathtaking lobby features walls of Monterey pines and redwoods layered with enormous pillars of rugged boulders.
The hotel includes 948 guest rooms, 71 Disney Vacation Club villas, three woodsy swimming pools, and five incredible dining locations, including the recently reopened Storytellers Cafe and award-winning Napa Rose.
The perfect foodie stop, Napa Rose also won acclaim for its 35 sommeliers, including several with advanced status.
Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel
Reopening yesterday, Paradise Pier celebrates all things seaside about the state of California. It’s colorful design harkens memories of days at the state’s iconic beaches. The 15-story hotel overlooks Disney California Adventure Park and even houses a rooftop pool with waterslide.
A moderately-priced option, Paradise Pier guests usually can dine at PCH Grill for quick service or stop by the Surfside Lounge inside of the lobby. During the early phase of its reopening however, Paradise Pier will not offer food and beverages. Instead, guests can wander to the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa or Downtown Disney District.
In just a couple of weeks, the landmark Disneyland Hotel reopens to guests on July 2nd. With 973 guest rooms, this AAA Four Diamond resort includes two pools and two waterslides themed after the vintage monorail station that once existed at the resort.
Famous dining locations including Goofy’s Kitchen, Tangaroa Terrace, Steakhouse 55, and the ever-clever Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar all reside in this 973-room mid-century throwback. However, only Tangaroa Terrace and Trader Sam’s will open in July.
Upon reopening, guests can only stay in the Fantasy Tower. Rooms in this speciality-themed wing include Hidden Mickeys, a sprinkle of pixie dust, and headboards that display fireworks while playing the classic Cinderella tune, “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes.”
Updates and Upgrades
Not only did Disneyland Hotel get a makeover during the shutdown, the Disneyland check-in system also received a massive overhaul. Guests now check-in online up to five days in advance. Like Walt Disney World resort, the new Disneyland system also provides guests room updates via text message, if requested.
Guests need to visit Disneyland.com to make theme park reservations before visiting and also read the “Know Before You Go” document on Disneyland.com.
Just yesterday, Disneyland changed their mask policy with face coverings only required on transportation. The resort also began allowing guests from out-of-state yesterday and announced a stellar summer promotion for resort stays.
