Disneyland Hotel and Disney’s Grand Californian Resort and Spa will cost thousands of dollars for those visiting the Disney Park, depending on your room, and both would be considered a luxury hotel for any Disney fan. With on-site table service, walking distance to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, and luxury suites, it’s hard to call these places anything but Deluxe. Additionally, before the pandemic, guests often appreciated the treatment of a soft bathrobe and slippers designed for the specific hotel.

Now, some Visitors who have visited the Disney Park express themselves on the cost of the Disneyland Hotel, compared to what the rooms offer. Personally, I love the Disneyland Hotel, and after a recent stay, I found the standard room with a premium view of the park exceptional and magical. That being said, some suites can get very expensive, averaging over $1000.00 per night, which can lead to higher expectations.

A guest noted, “It looks so old fashioned. Hope they upgrade the rooms with the new tower. Another said: ‘Not worth it at all. You could literally stay in a nicer room at any hotel in the convention center for half the price. There is nothing to brag about tbh.

Another guest who just returned from staying at the Disneyland Hotel also added:

Just returned yesterday from a 5 night stay in a 3 bedroom suite.

It looked like that, nothing special except the balcony from which we were able to watch the fireworks. They gave us the wrong room (and tower) number when we arrived. had to walk 10 suitcases up and down the elevators (and lines) and back and forth to the office. The soda machines and the ice machine were not working. Our VIP guide was 30 minutes late. I think I dropped close to $15B just to Disney for everything very mediocre.
