We were just there last week and were upgraded (without asking) to a room in the Fantasy Tower with view of the pools. If I can figure out how to post a picture, I'll post my picture of the pools. (or if someone can direct me to a link on how to post pictures.)

Christmas Trees at the Disneyland Hotel

Hi all,

We made a quick stop this week at the DLH and were able to catch some of the Christmas decorations. Thought you would be interested to see!

In keeping with the themes of each hotel tower, the lobby of each tower had a different tree.

Fantasy Tower (Main Lobby)




Adventure Tower




Frontier Tower




Goofy's Kitchen

a Goofy tree for Goofy's Kitchen.

Here's a night time photo of the pools. I guess I didn't take any daytime shots as the pools looked really cool at night!

Thanks 94bruin! This is a great shot and really shows the size of the pools and the layout. Do you remember your room number?

Also, do you mind if I re-post this photo at the beginning of the thread?

Sure - go ahead and post it. If I had know that it would end up on this thread, I would have tried to get a better shot with the better camera. I think i took this shot when everyone was asleep.

I believe we were in room 2530? It was on the 7th floor of the Fantasy Towers. You turned right coming off the elevators and it was the second to last room on the right.

Hi KC Mike - there are 2 hot tubs. One is near the monorail slides (the Minnie Mouse spa) closest to the Frontier Tower, and the other (the Mickey spa) is near the E Ticket pool, closest to the Fantasy Tower.

I got some daytime shots of the E Ticket pool and those will soon be posted on Page 1 of this thread.

There was one, and three pools.

Now there are two hot tubs and two pools, plus a spash pool at the base of the slides.

Read a very interesting / cool rumor today in Al Lutz' column regarding final touches for the lobby (Fantasy Tower) at the DLH. He says they are going to install a large animated map of the entire DL property in the lobby.

Sounds like fun!

Thoughts?

Great thread! I understand that some of the rooms are bigger than others. Are there larger rooms with two queens, dual sinks in the bathrooms, table and chairs, and sofa? Or are the larger rooms only for parties of 5? Any tips for getting a larger room? Thanks!

Does anyone know rack rates for the rooms now that the renovation is complete? I heard prices were going to increase...

Since there doesn't appear to be a Rack Rate listing as conspicuous as with the WDW hotels, it's tough to say.

During Value Season, there are typically winter offers up to 25% off. The best deals can be found then. Same goes with Annual Passholder rates. For example, a Value Season AP rate is as low as $210/night for a Standard Room.

That being said, here are Rack Rates during Regular Season:

Standard Room $385
Resort/Pool View $405
Upper Level Resort View $435
Upper Level Pool View $435
Concierge Pool View $590
Concierge Resort View $610

Rack Rates are definitely close to what you'd find at Deluxe properties in WDW.

Happy Planning!
