Disneyland Hotel – Standard King Room Photo Tour and Review

Disneyland Hotel - Review of a Standard King Room

For most people a trip to Disneyland is a dream. And a stay at the Disneyland Hotel is the magical cherry on top.

I had the luxury of staying in a king room and it was everything I could imagine. From the luxury to the historical details. It was a wonderful experience.

The Room

The room I stayed in was a end room that was a smaller king. It was cozy and wonderful for one or two people.

It has a comfortable king bed with enough fluffy pillows to make anyone comfortable. It is triple sheeted with a decorative throw. There is a small chair in the corner perfect for readying or gazing out the window.

Because this was a smaller room there is no day bed offered. There would be room for a small crib or pack and play but that is about it. It really is a wonderful room for two.

I just loved the pillow with the “A dream is a wish your heart makes when you are fast asleep” quote. But don’t think about taking it. It costs over $150!

Across the room is a small desk with chair and the tv. The dresser does include a small fridge to keep drinks cold.

The Bathroom

The bathroom from an amenities stand point is pretty simple. Regular sized tub and shower and a vanity. It’s the details that make this bathroom stand out from the rest.

The first thing you will notice is a mirror with Mickey inspired light fixtures. As soon as you see it you will be trying to figure out how to recreate this at home.

In the shower there are subtle hidden Mickeys in the tile work. And you will really enjoy the handle for the shower faucet. It really is one of a kind.

Like other Disney resorts you are provided H2O products. Disneyland Hotel uses the famous grapefruit line that is popular at the moderates at Walt Disney World.

And in the closet there is a robe for you to use during your stay. Comfortable is an under statement.

The Details

I have taken you though the basics but the room has so much more to offer. There are details everywhere.

The first thing to pop out is the artwork. There are murals of Walt Disney and some of the iconic attractions in the Disney Parks.

The large print of Walt Disney himself walking our from under Sleeping Beauty’s castle will have you in awe of actually being at the park Walt made. It really does have that affect on you.

Even the lamps have a bit of Hidden Mickey Whimsy.

Don’t forget to look at the things on the desk. The Disneyland Hotel Directory alone screams nostalgia.

And these coasters are fabulous with the original Disneyland Hotel and monorail on them.

Souvenir Tip: They will replenish the coasters each day so feel free to pack a few. I came home with quite the stack and love using them at every meal.

Remember to look down too. You never know what magic you may find in the room carpet.

But the most magical thing in the room is the head board. It had twinkling starts and fireworks to end and start the day with.

And each time you turn it on the fireworks are animated and you hear a bit of ‘When you Wish Upon a Star’.

My Thoughts

I loved every minute of my stay at the Disneyland Hotel!

The room I reviewed was in the Adventureland Tower and the best part of my day was walking through that lobby hearing the sounds from the park.

But at over $300 a night for a standard room I will have to let staying at the Disneyland Hotel remain a wonderful splurge.

But someday I hope to share it with my family. It is truly a magical experience.

    I usually travel to Disney World since I live only a few hours drive away. I even have annual passes, and you’re right, some of the resorts can be so expensive! I usually try to catch their sales, which they have plenty of, but even then some of the pricier hotels are still out of reach for me, like the Contemporary, the Polynesian, and the Grand Floridian; all of which are on the monorail line and would make my visit so much simpler with my 2 year old.

    Loved my same experience as this one. It makes me want to go back but I must wait for the crowds to go. Oh they don’t leave? Then when is the best time….
    The oldies but goodies first timers should have a special day or night r even middle of the night time to visit.
