      We arrived at the Disneyland Hotel for a 4 night stay on 9/27, around 1:30pm. First stay at this hotel. Was taken care of at check in desk right away. Charly checked me in efficiently, and said they had a premium view king bed room for us. I think that would have been an upgrade, as I paid for deluxe view, but as I was traveling with my mom, we really preferred queen beds. Charly went to look into moving us around, and while it was possible, the room was not ready until 2:50pm. She was also able to print my park tickets, which I had purchased from a reputable travel agency, and her manager went to Bell Services to retrieve the scooter we had reserved for my mom.

      We stored our luggage with Bell Services and went to lunch. When we came back, we browsed in the store and met Goofy in the lobby! What a nice touch! Our assigned room was 2420, on the 6th floor of the Fantasy Tower. It was literally next to the elevator bank, which concerned me at first, but we never heard people in the hall and only occasional rumblings of the elevators themselves.

      Our room was very spacious and had a great view of the pools (deluxe view, as paid for). Windows were filthy though, which detracted from the view. Also, our fridge was not cleaned out. Previous guest had left a partial bottle of water and half eaten cheese plate, which we just tossed ourselves, rather than calling to complain.

      There is a nice counter area outside the bathroom to allow someone to get ready in the morning, as long as no sink is needed. There was only one sink in the bathroom area, not two, as we are accustomed to at WDW deluxe resorts. Bathrobes are now the scratchy cotton found at the Grand Floridian, rather than the nice terry cloth ones that used to be there. Beds and pillows were outstandingly comfortable, and the "magical" headboard was a nice addition.

      Used the pools one afternoon. They were not overly crowded at all. The monorail slides were quite fun. Wish we would have had time to take advantage of the *free* tours offered at this hotel and Grand Californian.

      Enjoyed a breakfast at Tangaroa Terrace, brunch at Goofy's Kitchen (actually, we felt, our best meal of the trip), and I had a drink at Trader Sam's one afternoon.

      We love the location of the hotel. Nice stroll through Downtown Disney in the morning and evening. Disappointed in the monorail (not the hotel's fault) as it doesn't operate when it's very hot out because there's no A/C, nor does it serve as transportation to/from Downtown Disney & the hotels before or after park closing. I'm definitely WDW biased in that way.

      Bell services was great about helping with bags in a timely manner. Big shoutout to Kenny who assisted us taking our luggage to the shuttle pickup on our last night, and chatted with us for about 10 minutes about our visit and hometown.

      The hotel was completely sold out (all three were, actually) as there was a convention at DLH for our entire stay. Despite this, I never felt the resort was crowded, and the parks were downright empty for most of the days we were there.

      I would stay here again, but the price was a bit to stomach. Would definitely make sure a discount was available before booking next time.
