Are you looking to stay at a Disney resort while visiting Disneyland? Have you heard about Disney’s Paradise Pier!? I recently spent 3 nights at this resort and I really enjoyed it! Not only is this hotel a close walk to both of the parks, but it is also right next door to the Disneyland resort and Disney’s Grand Californian resort. The Uber ride was an affordable 15 minute ride from the John Wayne Airport. Score!
I visited Disneyland in December, which is around the holidays. As I stepped foot into the resort, I was immediately greeted by a live acapella singing group, who were spreading Christmas cheer to all with Christmas carols. I even got to meet Santa!
Along with the convenience aspect, when you stay at this resort, you also get to enjoy the perks at the other resorts such as Disney’s Grand Californian. We would start our day by walking across the street and using our room key to access this amazing resort. You simply cross the street, scan your room key at the side guest gate and you are in! It is that easy! This access gets you into the resort, both parks, Downtown Disney and the restaurants that are at the resort as well! I loved that I could enjoy the other resorts within walking distance without having to be an exclusive guest. Our resort was so convenient that one day I walked back to the hotel to rest and freshen up before park hopping. After a 10 minute walk from the park, I was able to rest my feet and layer up my clothing for the chilly evening weather. Knowing that I didn’t have to take any extra transportation was so nice! If you have small children, this location is perfectly convenient for nap time!
Being a lover of the beach, I felt all of the nostalgia vibes of my childhood while staying here. All of the staff were super helpful and friendly! Our room was spacious and accommodating. The views from our room were breathtaking with the pool and mountains on one side and Disney’s California Adventure park on the other! This resort doesn’t miss a beat. They even have nice gift shop, where I was able to bring some magic home with me. If you are looking for a place to stay while visiting Disneyland, I highly recommend staying at Disney’s Paradise Pier!
