The hotel features three pools as well as its own entrance into California Adventure. Average prices range between $417–700 per night.
The magical Disneyland Hotel is located near Downtown Disney, making it a very short walk to access the Disneyland or California Adventure parks. Modern rooms feature nods to the park, including headboards depicting Sleeping Beauty’s Castle.

There are also two pools on the property, complete with monorail-themed waterslides. The pools are named E-ticket and D-ticket, which alludes to Disneyland history. Guests used to buy individual tickets for each ride up until the early ‘80s. Tickets came as A, B, C, D, or E, with E being the best and, therefore, most expensive rides.
