Hello!, I read this boards everyday and hardly ever post but I love it here!. You are all experts when it comes to Disneyland .

I wanted to ask you something, Is concierge really worth it?. I've got a new job and now I can afford staying at the Disneyland Hotel . But I'm not really sure about paying the extra for concierge. We are a family of four (no kids/teens, all grown ups) but we all love Disneyland and we have awsome family memories at this wonderful place and that's why we LOVE coming back every time we can. So I'm planning inviting the family to Disneyland and surprise them with a stay at this hotel (I'm planning and off season trip for 4 days) and I thought concierge could be a nice extra (check in, food, etc).

I picked this hotel because I think this one is the one with more Disney magic

Thank you in advance!!!

I personally think it's worth it. To me, staying on the Club Level at the Disneyland Hotel strikes just the right balance between five-star and family.

We're going this week and will be staying Club Level - I will post a review when we get back!

We've stayed Club Level before and my favorite perk is definitely the complimentary refreshments, especially since every snack break in the Park costs at least $20 for a family of four. If you're staying Club Level, you can enjoy breakfast in the lounge, grab drinks and snacks to enjoy while in the park, return to the lounge for a refreshing recharge in the afternoon, then pop in before bedtime for a special treat. When my kids were little, sometimes the hors d'oeuvres from the Wine and Cheese reception were enough for them for dinner!

Magical Beginnings from 6:30 - 10am (Continental Breakfast)
Intermission 11am - 4pm (Light Refreshments and Snacks)
Magic Hours 5pm - 7pm (Wine & Cheese Reception)
Sweet Dreams 8pm - 10pm (Dessert Bar)

Hi Roxychip, Welcome to the wonderful world of the Dis boards. Lucky you planning a trip so soon to DLH. My understanding of the room you've booked is that QD Standard Vw DSTD means you have a standard room that has two queen beds and a standard view. The standard view means it is not a park-view (view of Disneyland) nor a Downtown Disney-view (view of the themed outdoor shopping mall that connects DLH to the parks) nor a pool-view room facing into the interior of the DLH resort (there are three hotel towers that ring around a fantastic pool with waterslides). Standard view usually means a parking lot view out toward the city of Anaheim. Have fun on your trip.

Too many pages to read through. What is the name of the tower that is used for check-in. Also the name of the one closest to the park. I don't want to stay in the way way in the back.

You check in at Fantasy tower. Adventure Towet is the closest, but by only a minute or so.

Does anyone know if the Disneyland addition of the DisUnplugged podcast has done a show about the Disneyland hotel?

We stayed in the Adventure Tower this time but even if you get put in the furthest tower, it really isn't far at all. I wasn't familar with the DLH and kept hearing about the "far tower". When we got there, I was really surprised to see that it really wasn't far at all.

Thanks. I'll ask for either.

We stayed in the Frontier Tower last month. It's the "far" tower. If it was just a regular hotel stay, I'd say it wasn't a big deal that it was farther away because it's not that far. But by the end of a long day in the parks, I was wishing we were in the Adventure Tower or Fantasy Tower!

On the other hand, the Frontier Tower is nice if you're spending much time at the on-site restaurants, especially Trader Sam's or Tangaroa Terrace. It's the closest tower to either of those, and is also closest to the laundry facilities. Also closest to the water slides. Adventure and Fantasy are closest to the regular pool.

DLH Cabana Pictures

I said I'd post pictures of the Cabanas at DLH so here they are. Overall the setup is really nice. If you are looking for a luxurious and relaxing day by the pool away from the crowds, or just want a more contained space for a family, they are wonderful.

Here's what was in the Cabana: 2 lounge chairs w/small table, sofa, loveseat, coffee table, 2 end tables, credenza with refrigerator, safe, power strip, clock radio with iPod cord, flatscreen TV, basket of towels

Cabana host delivered: 4 bottles of water, fruit basket containing 2 apples, a pear, strawberries, grapes
We also requested a pack n play for the baby to nap, that was great

Hours & Price: 1/2 day $110, full day $185 Morning was 9:30-1:30 afternoon 2:30-6:30 (I believe) so 4 or 8 hour blocks
[These details turned out to be a bit different than when I reserved so I had a less than perfect guest experience, and Guest Services didn't seem to care. When I reserved they told me morning was 9:30-2 and the monorail slides opened at 10. When we got there we found out we only had the cabana until 1:30 and the slides now open at 11. In retrospect we should have just reserved the whole day, but at that point I was too annoyed to pay another $75 since they didn't seem sorry for giving out the wrong info. Then at 1:00 there was an issue (vomit I suspect) and the slides were closed again until 1:40]

We had cabana #1 which is right at the base of the slides, near the wading area, I recommend 1, 2, and 3 if you have kids wading or into the slides. The others are over by the Eticket pool and perfect if you are spending more time actually swimming.

Here's the sitting area inside:


And the amenities:


And a view from the outside:

Thank you for posting the cabana pictures! We want to rent one next summer and I've been curious to see who its all actually set up. Looks pretty awesome. Do you know/remember how many cabanas were by the pool side? I'm more interested in being over there.
