We had a room in July with two queen beds and no pull-out. But...there were only two of us, so that could have mattered. We were in the Fantasy building with a pool view (bonus-didn't pay for that )

Another thread has noted that new thermostats are being installed, that automatically shut of the air conditioning.
In some cases while guests are still in the room

I have not encountered one of these thermostats, but a solution was posted:

Dumb question here...

On the Disney site to reserve a room at the DLH, what is the difference between Resort View and Upper Level Resort View?
Is it the obvious that you are one or more floors higher?

Is the Upper level a larger room? Does one have a balcony and the other does not?

Thanks.

Just higher up. I think upper level resort view is above the 7th floor, and resort view is below. The rooms are not larger or anything.

Very few rooms have balconies, only the rooms on the ends and top floor of the Frontier Tower.

You are correct, upper level begins on the 7th floor.
Thanks for the help!

Does anyone know how the Expedia room description lines up with the Disney room description?

Would the premium view (Expedia) be the same as the upper level view (Disney)? Premium view on Expedia states it has a balcony. I can't find anything on the Disney site that says if the upper level view has a balcony or not.

Both sites have standard and concierge rooms so i'm guessing that premium and upper level view are the same??

Just left the Resort. Had a premium upper level room. It was in the Adventure tower on the 8th floor looking East over the resort. It was the last room on the south end. No balcony, but an incredible view!

We are staying at DLH right now and got upgraded to a suite. 14th floor in the Frontier tower. It is a corner room do balconies facing the Fantasy tower and the Parks. ( we can see all 4 mountains, the Grizzly peak, Cadillac Range, etc).
The funny thing is that the height of the balconies is kinda freaky to me. Lol. I get nervous out there. :/

I'm also in the Frontier Tower, 6 floors lower than you, with a balcony facing the same way. I think that even the height from HERE is a little bit disturbing!

Oh also - my room was extremely hot ... thank you to whoever posted that bypass!

We won our trip and it was booked thru Disney Promotions. I'm just trying to figure out if we'll have a mini-fridge and a coffee maker in our room. I'm pretty sure it's just a standard room. TIA!

Congratulations! Standard rooms have both a coffee maker and a mini-fridge.

We're staying at the BWPPI in December. I'm wondering if someone has suggestions for room requests? I'd like to not be on the far side of the hotel. We have a mini-suite, if that matters.

Also, has anyone had the hotel hold their luggage when they arrive. Our plane arrives around 9am, so we're expecting to be at the hotel by 11am. We just want to make sure we have a place to put all our luggage, as we won't have a car to store it in until our room is ready.

Thanks!

This thread is just for the Disneyland Hotel, so you'll have better luck creating a new thread with your question.
