Disneyland Hotel Turns 60

Disneyland Hotel also opened in 1955 just three months after the park opened. Designed to for families, the hotel launched a new family-friendly era in the tourism industry. The hotel has undergone many renovations, including one in 2012, and now has 973 rooms. One of the most popular onsite restaurants is Goofy’s Kitchen, which offers character dining and an all-you-eat buffet. Other restaurants include the new Tangaroa Terrace restaurant and Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tike Bar. In tune with its kid-friendly feel, there’s also a huge pool area (including a Mickey ears-shaped pool) and slide.

Today Disneyland Resort also offers the 948-room Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, which has the feel of a grand mountain lodge, and the 481-Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, which has a California beach vibe.
