We stayed here for a few nights at the end of a 3 week vacation to California with our daughter and grandson. We moved here from the Park Vue Inn which I previously reviewed. Because we were already in the area, I was able to go to the hotel early in the morning to check us in and hopefull get the type of room we wanted. Even by the time we got there at 10 am, the rooms were being taken, and we ended up having a handicap access room, not in the building we wanted, but we were very happy with the room and enjoyed staying in a different building this trip. We were up on the 6th floor of the main tower with the lobby, facing out over the pool. The renovations to the hotel since our last stay are amazing, and our grandson loved the light up headboard that played music at bed time. We actually decided to stay an extra couple of nights after checking in, and when I phoned to the lobby to extend our stay, I was told they were fully booked via there system but I should call Disney Travel as they may have rooms available, which they did, and we were also able to stay in the same room which was great. The valet service was awesome, so helpful, at check in and out, and when having purchases sent over from the parks. You can't beat the location for entering Disneyland or California Adventure! Being able to hop on the monorail in Disneyland and be dropped off steps away from the hotel for naps in the afternoon is just perfect!! and of course by staying on a Disney property you have early entry to the parks and can ride the more popular rides like Radiator Springs Racers before the big crowds hit. The pool area is just amazing, so much fun! and the drinks and snacks from the pool bar were yummmmmy! We would love to stay here every time we go to Disneyland, but as we usually stay a couple of weeks, with the significant increase in prices last year, this is not possible for us. But to spend 4 nights here at the end of a longer stay in the area is a real treat! There are perks to staying here other than early entry and you should make sure to ask and read the information they give you. Like grandson had a personalised session at Build a Bear, and daughter had a personalised session at Sephora. The restaurants in the hotel are amazing! Breakfast at SteakHouse 55 is one of our favorite breakfasts anywhere ever! Trader Sams Enchanted Tiki Bar is not to be missed with all it's special effects! it's like dining inside the Enchanted Tiki room! and yes children are welcome :) Goofy's kitchen is amazing, with so much character interaction, and Steakhouse 55 has what we think are the best steaks anywhere on the disney property. Tangaroa Terrace is the place to go for french toast with warm banana caramel sauce! Everywhere you go on the property you are emmersed in the Disney magic! from the Disney music playing everywhere, to the topiary Disney characters, to the actual Disney characters you run into once in a while. The grounds are so lushly planted, there is still a stream area, and in the evening with the tiki torches lit up, it is like being in a tropical paradise. My husband and I have stayed here before, for our 2nd honeymoon, and it is perfect for that too! Definitely not just a place for families with kids!
