The Disneyland Hotel is one of three resort hotels owned by the Disney company in close proximity to the Disneyland Resort – the other two being the Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and the Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel. Of the three, the Disneyland Hotel has the oldest history, although demolition over the years and recent renovations insures the hotel has been kept up to contemporary standards.


When plans for building the Disneyland theme park were conceived of by Walt Disney, he also wanted to create a hotel nearby for some of the guests to stay at. Unfortunately, all available Disney funds were already being directed towards the theme park construction.

Accordingly, Disney signed a deal with Wrather-Alvarez Productions in which they would operate the hotel under the Disney name. The Disneyland Hotel was then constructed and opened on October 5, 1955, a few months after the theme park.

A one of the original owners, Jack Wrather, would continue to own and operate the hotel until the late 1980’s. Then, in 1989, the Disney Company acquired the Wrather Company and the hotel officially came under the Disney umbrella.

Throughout all those years, additions and remodeling took place, however, under Disney the hotel really changed. Most of that change was in the form of significant demolitions which were required for construction of the nearby Downtown Disney.

The hotel underwent another series of extensive renovations beginning in 2009. Those renovations are scheduled to be concluded sometime in 2012.

Today, the hotel is listed at 990 rooms including suites with something to accommodate almost every budget. It is located within walking distance to both Disneyland and California Adventure which completes the Disney atmosphere which surrounds those who stay at the hotel.
