During our visit to Disneyland in California for the Disneyland Half Marathon, we stayed on property at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel. During this trip, we stayed four nights at this hotel.
The resort is surfing & beaching themed. As you walk into the lobby, you see Surfer Goofy.
Disneyland has three on property hotels, with the other two being the Grand California Resort and Spa and the Disneyland Hotel.
As Disney Vacation Club members, we opted to go with the lesser points hotel and chose Paradise Pier. You could tell that the hotel was dated; however, like it Disney fashion, it has been well maintained, and a good choice for on property lodging, especially if you are staying on a budget. This is a non-DVC villa but did not feel too small to feel comfortable.
