We decided to have a stay-cation this year and we stayed at the Disneyland Hotel. From start to finish, it totally exceeded our expectations. For starters the pool and slides, were the reason we decided to stay at this hotel over the other two Disney hotels and they didn't disappoint AT ALL. I did have reservations that the price for the hotel was a bit high -- but after staying there, I would go back in a heartbeat and gladly recommend to anyone else who is on the fence that every detail is taken care of and totally worth it!
We are annual passholders so we knew we'd spend some time in the parks, but the magical hour was really nice. Then the movies in the grass, really was a nice activity and we took advantage of 2 of the movies. The pina colada/raspberry blendy drink at the pool (non-alcoholic) was scrumptions! Ok, I'm all over the place here.... so let me wrap up:
The staff was incredible - life guards, housekeeping (we totally tipped them!), front desk, etc. I particularly loved how the life guards were so kind and helping my 3 year old to wait in line for the slides. They helped ensure she was following the rules and did it in such a great way -- they were like the aunt who spoils your kids but still keeps them safe!
We ended up eating all our meals (except one at the pool which was yummy) at either the parks or Downtown Disney and I totally regret eating at Downtown Disney. Every meal we had there was disappointing. We figured that the price at the hotel for dinner was a bit pricey, but we probably should have just done it. The food at the parks was great.
All in all, this staycation rivals that of our pre-children vacations aboard cruise ships and the Caribbean. It was THAT great!
