First, if you couldn't find it here, I would appreciate it if you would click on this link and send me a message to tell me what's missing.  I'll do my best to "fill in the blanks" as soon as possible.


Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel


The newest of the Disneyland resorts is Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel (formerly the Disneyland Pacific Hotel) now dressed as the backdrop for the Paradise Pier area of the new California Adventure theme park being built next door.  The hotel, like it's bigger next door neighbor, was built by another party and was bought by the Walt Disney Company in the mid-1990's. Again, the resort isn't themed, but it has been recently remodeled and is a nice hotel, but without the amenities and atmosphere of the Disneyland Hotel.

Food and Drink

The Hotel has a couple of restaurants to choose from. The PCH Grill (PCH stands for "Pacific Coast Highway") has a widely varying menu that includes seafood, steak, wood-fired pizza, and Asian dishes (and is the location of a character breakfast).  Yamabuki is a Japanese restaurant that serves tempura, sushi, and other Japanese dishes.  The Tea Room is the location where the Victorian-style "Practically Perfectly Tea" is served up by Mary Poppins herself (make sure you have reservations for this popular event).

Concierge Service

Lani Tashima wrote a fantastic column about the resort's concierge service.  If you're thinking about upgrading, check this out!  Feel like Royalty on Your Next Disneyland Visit.


The Hotel's recreational activities include a huge children center, pool, exercise room, and more.

Disney Transportation

Travel to Disneyland Park is via tram or monorail. In either case  you have to hoof it to some extent because.  The Monorail is located in front of the Disneyland Hotel, about two city blocks away and the tram loading area is behind the Paradise Pier Hotel about a city block from the Hotel's rear entrance. Actually, that's not as bad as it sounds because the Paradise Pier Hotel is closer to the transportation than many of the Disneyland Hotel's furthest rooms.
