Pool Parties, Fireworks Viewing Area, and More Benefits for Guests of Disneyland Hotels
It’s always a great time to visit the Disneyland Resort and stay at a Disneyland Hotel. But, this Summer might be the best time ever to stay at a Disneyland Hotel with new pool parties and a private fireworks viewing area, along with many new benefits and the return of some favorites!
In addition to being steps away from your favorite Disneyland Parks and Downtown Disney, Guests staying at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, Disneyland Hotel, or Disney’s Paradise Pier this summer are invited to take part in the following extra-magical benefits and activities:
More Fun at the Pools of the Disneyland Hotels
Guests staying at one of the three Disneyland Hotels from July 1 to August 31, 2022 are invited to take part in a poolside party!
A half-hour party will be offered daily and gives Guests the chance to try their hand at several poolside activities including a water sponge relay and a floaty toss.
I’m also hearing that your favorite Disney Pals will be stopping by these parties for a little extra magic so make sure to catch a photo of Pluto dancing the doggie paddle to some high-energy music!
While at your favorite Disneyland Hotel pool this Summer, make sure to make a splash on one of the pool’s water slides. Or, for some extra fun, rent a cabana for a shady poolside oasis with well-appointed amenities.
Early Theme Park Entry Returns
I am also happy to announce that the Early Theme Park Entry benefit is back beginning August 8, 2022!
This benefit, reserved for Guests staying at one of the three Disneyland Hotels, allows access to each of the Disneyland Parks 30 minutes before they opening, giving you more time for riding popular attractions, dining, and shopping.
Staying at a Disneyland Hotel Gets You to the Magic Faster and Easier
While all three Disneyland Hotels are within walking distance of Disneyland Park and California Adventure, getting inside the parks is even easier!
Guests staying at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel and Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa now have access to a private entrance to Disney California Adventure Park while Guests of the Disneyland Hotel can hop aboard the Monorail to get into Disneyland Park.
See Characters and Learn New Hobbies
Guests staying at the Disneyland Hotels never know who they might spot while in their Hotel as Disney Pals are back roaming the properties.
Other Hotel activities include learning to hula and play the ukulele among several others. Stop by the Guest Services desk in the hotel lobby for all activities and locations.
Go Straight to Your Room with the Digital Key Feature
Bypass the check-in desk and go straight to your Disneyland Hotel room once it is ready with the Digital Key feature in the Disneyland app accessible through a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone.
Dining Right to Your Door
Don’t feel like leaving the room for breakfast, lunch, or dinner? Simply turn on your TV in your hotel room to access a QR code that links to restaurants that offer delivery to your Disneyland Resort Hotel lobby.
Package Delivery Returns
Another benefit that I am thrilled to report is returning for Guests staying at Disneyland Resort Hotels is package delivery! Beginning August 8, 2022, Guests can purchase items in the Parks and they will magically show up in your Hotel the next day!
In addition, you can also charge purchases to your room through the Disneyland app!
NEW Preferred Dining Access
Another benefit of staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel that I know y’all are going to love is Preferred Dining Access! This gives Guests preferred access to a limited number of restaurant reservations at select table service locations at Disneyland Resort Hotels.
Magical Dining Options
Guests may be able to take advantage of the all-new Preferred Dining Access benefit to try out the ultra-popular Disney Princess Breakfast Adventure in Napa Rose at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa!
The Disney Princess Breakfast Adventure invites Guests to enjoy a three-course breakfast alongside some of their favorite Disney Princesses.
Other character dining experiences at Disneyland Hotel Resorts include enjoying a meal with Mickey and pals at Storytellers Cafe also at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa along with Goofy’s Kitchen at the Disneyland Hotel.
The Best Spots for the Best Drinks
If you are looking for a place to wind down after a long day in the Parks or just to chill at any time of the day, Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar at the Disneyland Hotel is the place to be!
Also at the Disneyland Resort is Tangaroa Terrace Tropical Bar & Grill that overlooks the Hotel’s pool and offers a Polynesian-themed vibe complete with DOLE Whips (with out without rum!)
Guests are also invited over to Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa to GCH Craftsman Bar to enjoy delicious dishes, signature cocktails, and live music during afternoons in the Summer months.
Reserved Fireworks Viewing Areas
Another benefit that some Guests don’t even know about is the reserved Fireworks Viewing area located on the rooftop of Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel. Guests of all three Disneyland Resort Hotels are invited to this area to see the magic of the nightly fireworks spectacular.
To take your fireworks viewing experience to the next level, you will definitely want to book a Club Level room at either Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa or the Disneyland Hotel for access to The Veranda or the E-Ticket Lounge. Guests staying in Club Level accommodations are treated to continental breakfast, afternoon tea, a wine and cheese reception, cookies and desserts, a personal concierge and VIP view of the fireworks!
Sparkle with Spa Treatment at the Tenaya Stone Spa
If are are looking for the ultimate way to relax during your next Disneyland vacation, then a spa treatment at the Tenaya Stone Spa in Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is a must!
Treatments available include a variety of massage and body treatments, facials, hair services, manicures, pedicures, and foot treatments.
Guests are now invited to try out the all-new Gemstone Sparkle Facial available at the Tenaya Spa. This 80-minute treatment combines nature, science, and luxury for a facial formulated with luxurious oils, gemstones, and a diamond collagen mask to bring back that natural vitality and glow and leaving your skin revitalized and radiant.
The Tenaya Stone Spa also offers some innovative, 30-minute classes including Disney Ears Yoga, Paddleboard Yoga, and Paddleboard Fitness.
Save Big on Your Next Disneyland Resort Hotel Stay
If all these benefits above aren’t enough to get you ready now to book your Summer stay at a Disneyland Resort Hotel, how does a discount up to 25% sound?!
Guests who plan to stay at a Disneyland Resort Hotel on most Sunday through Thursday nights from August 7 to September 29, 2022 can save up to 25% off their hotel stay making it the perfect way to wind down the Summer or even get a kick start on Fall with the begging of Halloween Time at the Resort!
