Oct 5, 2012 10:42 AM  Disneyland Talk Land
Good morning, TGIF! This day in Disney history, Oct 5th, 1955 . The Disneyland Hotel opens opposite the main exit of Disneyland. Nearly three months after the opening day of Disneyland park, 104 rooms were available. It was considered the 1st major hotel in Orange County. Owned by the Wrather Corporation, the hotel won't be purchased by Disney until 1988. The 1st photo below was taken in 1961, it shows the Monorail track that was expanded that year to transport guests between DL & the hotel, making it the only monorail in the country to cross a public street @ that time. The 2nd photo was taken after 1966 when a new sign was added that read, “Hotel Disneyland.” Hope you all have a magical day! Thanks for reading! :)

I'm a bit late on this but have to comment! The DLH was where we stayed on almost every family visit to the parks. I have such wonderful memories of staying there with my parents, and in later years with my daughter and my parents. We always stayed in the Garden Villas...they were 2 stories and looked out over a large grassy area. There were 2 rooms (similar to an Embassy Suites), a bedroom and living room witha foldout couch. We always asked for a ground floor since they had enclosed patios that opened out into the garden area. Evenings included watching the Fantasy Waters, and breakfast was at the Monorail Cafe. Before we would leave we would go to the store underneath the monorail station to pick up last minute souvenirs. I remember my dad and my daughter playing with the remote-controlled boats....I think he had more fun than she did! I was very disappointed to see the Villas go, but when they did, my daughter and I stayed in the tower to the south because of the view of the redwoods and waterfalls. I still enjoy the hotel but miss that section, and the fact they no longer have open balconies. Thanks for another trip down Memory Lane, Duchess! - Gia  802.0 #231 10:46AM
thank you!! do you happen to know why the monorail no longer stops there? - misschurro  6374.5 #17 10:46AM
and they used to have dancing there, too - misschurro  6374.5 #17 10:47AM
The dancing fountains right? I loved those. I wonder what happened as well. The moved the hotel didn't they? And that's why it stops in dtd. Could be wrong though - fairyshley  479.8 #444 10:50AM
monorail does not stop there becasue Downtown Disney was built and the building that housed the monorail station along with the shops, monorail cafe, the neon cactus and the original goofys kitchen was torn down in 1998 - Dave   13532.0 #2 11:02AM
the fountain show was called Fantasy waters and you can actually still see where it was at the hotel - Dave   13532.0 #2 11:02AM
Someone please correct me if I'm wrong but from what I've read, I believe FairyShley is right. When construction of DCA began in 1999, Disneyland Hotel Station and all of its nearby hotel structures were completely demolished and a new station built in the same location. - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 11:02AM
no, the original stop for where the monorail station is now at DTD is not in the same location as before, it was actually pushed up - Dave   13532.0 #2 11:06AM
but yes all the buildings were demolished - Dave   13532.0 #2 11:07AM
Thanks for clearing that up Dave 😃 - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 11:10AM
Really seems like they should reroute the monorail to stop at the Grand and DLH. - misschurro  6374.5 #17 11:46AM
I've been butthurt for years but the monorail was actually supposed to go to John Wayne Airport, Anaheim Stadium, the convention center and a couple of other stops along the way...That would have been epic - Dave   13532.0 #2 11:52AM
That would have been awesome Dave - Villescas8  606.9 #336 11:53AM
Epic for sure ::sigh:: - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 12:28PM
This answered SO many questions for me. I thought it had moved up. I remember taking the Monorail to Disneyland Hotel because my Dad always wanted to eat dinner there. The new location just didn't make sense in my brain but I couldn't figure it out. So it DID move. I think I just won a bet. - AKMouse  490.6 #435 4:19PM
@AKAMouse according to Dave, yes it did. Awesome, what did you win??? Lol - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 4:24PM
Actually it is being contested because of Yesterland.com content which states that the station remained in the same location. "Guests have wondered why the station was moved to a less convenient location. In reality, the station didn’t move. The hotel “shrunk” when the original sections were demolished, leaving the station a surprising distance from the nearest Disneyland Hotel building. The old lobby and Monorail Lounge are gone; a Rainforest Cafe is now in that location. " - AKMouse  490.6 #435 4:29PM
That didn't make sense. I meant that I won the contention because of Dave and now Yesterland. I think I should get at least churro out of it. :) - AKMouse  490.6 #435 4:33PM
Agh! Pregnancy brain is not letting me communicate well! - AKMouse  490.6 #435 4:33PM
That makes sense now that Goofy's Kitchen isn't in it's original spot bc when I used to take the monorail during the CPG sets to go see Dave and our friends working there as characters in the 90s, I remember it being in a diff spot!! I wish it still went to the hotels and also stopped at DCA!! Thanks for the info Dave :) - caramiapoohluvsbb8  4088.5 #37 12:11PM
I only got off the monorail at the hotel once, but I remember wanting to see the last remaining original orange tree. I've never seen it, even after staying there numerous times. Is it still there? - bluefairy  643.8 #313 12:25PM
Thank you for posting. - thegoofster  226.4 #1649 10:47AM
Thanks for reading! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 11:14AM
Does anyone remember the Monorail cafe? It was one of our favorites for dinner on our way back to the Disneyland Hotel. - DisneyGrandma  877.3 #211 10:56AM
Unfortunately no, what did they serve there? I'm intrigued! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 11:15AM
I do,I ate there all the time as a kid and have very fond memories of going there after school with my grandmother and aunt and getting a burger and s shake - Dave   13532.0 #2 12:32PM
Always enjoy the history. Thanks! - Tealtownfan  1015.6 #186 10:57AM
I always enjoy you telling me so! Thank you! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 11:54AM
I really love your posts. They trigger great memories. Disney makes such great efforts to keep things new and exciting, I tend to forget the "old stuff". So thank you very much for the memories!!! - DisneyGrandma  877.3 #211 10:59AM
Thank YOU for adding info! It's so fun to learn together! I really appreciate you telling me you enjoy these. Keeps me motivated! ;) - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 11:25AM
Sad to say the only difference between me and the Disneyland Hotel is that the hotel has been renovated! - PrinceCorey  4522.4 #30 11:04AM
Hehe you share a birthday! Happy birthday! 😂😂😂 - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 12:28PM

I never got to see those! Thanks! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 12:30PM
I hardly remember going on the monorail when I was like five or something, and stopping in the hotel. It was around Christmastime, because they had those little cutout sign things of characters in the snow :] I think I have pictures somewhere.. Thanks Duchess! - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #162 11:27AM
Me too. We always stopped there - E-Ticket  1467.1 #117 11:36AM
I want to see these pictures! Instagram please!!! 😘😘 - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 12:31PM
Thanks for the Memories - E-Ticket  1467.1 #117 11:37AM
😘 - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 12:34PM
as always thank you for the disneyland history awesomeness:) would love if that marquee was still there. - OhanaPhoto  5333.3 #21 11:46AM
I wish they would have kept it up somewhere!! 😢 - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 12:35PM
The original DL Hotel of the 90s is one of my memories of DL. My parents would stop there on our trips from SD to LA to walk around and shop a little. I still remember the old stores, the Fantasy Waters show and the big lake. And for Christmas, we used to take pictures around the hotel and the numerous character cut-outs they had. And if they wanted to surprise us, they bought us tickets to ride on the Monorail so we can go inside the park for a few minutes. - BaseballMickey_CM  7630.0 #11 11:50AM
for a couple years before they tore everything down in 98 they had an ice skating rink at the Hotel during Christmas....I got a chance to skate it with my friend Tigger - Dave   13532.0 #2 12:54PM
I remember that too - BaseballMickey_CM  7630.0 #11 1:06PM
@Dave, you really are one of the luckiest guys I know. So many amazing memories! @BBM thank you for sharing that story. I love hearing stuff like that! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 1:53PM
@Duchess... when we would go to the Monorail Cafe we always had our 3 kids with us so we only ordered burgers, fries, and shakes lol. I think it was pretty much typical diner food. It was pretty good if my memory serves me right. - DisneyGrandma  877.3 #211 11:51AM
Burgers, fries and shakes are the perfect meal for the park, my daughters favorite! Thank you for answering that for me! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 1:46PM
If I remember correctly, you could buy a ticket and the DL hotel station to take a round trip to the park and back. You sat in the back and they didn't open the door at Tomorrowland. - sr_citizen_space_ranger  70.0 #4166 11:56AM
Oh really?!!! How did they monitor who had admission tickets or just monorail tickets? - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 1:47PM
We would go to the DL hotel at night and play miniature golf and hit golf balls on the driving range. - sr_citizen_space_ranger  70.0 #4166 12:00PM
Thank you SMK!! As a kid, I remember going to Disneyland and the Disneyland Hotel sign was always a welcome and a happy memory. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 12:31PM
Too bad that sign isn't still around! So iconic! Thanks MyPark! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 1:43PM
I remember staying there once with my family and watching the water show. I also remember my mother insisting we take the monorail from Tomorrowland to go eat at the Monorail Cafe when we went to DL. I sure wish they had left the mid century fifties charm intact when it was remodeled. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 12:44PM
Me too! It seems me have similar style preferences ScooterMike! As always, thanks for adding your story/info! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 1:42PM
Thanks for sharing! - mrscttlemstr  315.9 #823 1:02PM
:) - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 1:43PM
I totally remember the dancing fountains show when I was a kid! I thought I was crazy cause I didn't go back to the parks for a few years, during the DTD change, and when I did go back it was completely gone. Seriously, I thought maybe the fountains were somewhere else. LOL thank you for validating that my mind has not completely gone. =) - iloveprinceEric  264.4 #1221 1:29PM
Hehe, I'm so thankful for all the MWers who add so much quality info here. I learn something about DL everyday! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 2:20PM
Did they also have a water fall type surrounded walkway in the middle also? I remember you could walk on boulder type walkways with waterfalls all around you. It was in the middle of the hotel buildings, right? - iloveprinceEric  264.4 #1221 1:33PM
no, it was actually wear the entrance to the Frontier tower is. They only took that out a couple of years ago when they were doing the new pool and Trader sams - Dave   13532.0 #2 1:45PM

I just called them to price out our potential trip in June. Chris was so nice and the MW savings are phenomenal! Still waiting on work vacation approval to reserve the room!  - HNL2SFO  244.2 #1428 1:26PM
What percentage saving are we looking at for being MouseWaiters? Is it better than a AAA discount.  - MoChuck  148.0 #2741 3:57PM
@@@Admin I booked with get away today and am staying at the HoJo in December.  Does MW still give the 100 credits or do I have to book with the hotel directly? - dsnylvr1975  173.2 #2352 5:02PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

Super Bowl unFORECAST for the week of Feb 1, 2016
Everyone always asks if it will be busy on Super Bowl Sunday. Historically the answer is always YES, and this Sunday should be no exception. Since last week, weekdays have been surprisingly slow (very low crowds). We expect more of the same this week, until Friday. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 60s (approx 60% capacity), and it jumped a little during Super Bowl weekend. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Feb 1, 2016 12:06PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  616.2 #331 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.5 #7246 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  438.4 #500 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  171.2 #2390 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  249.4 #1357 5:04PM
I'm glad Saturday's are good we are going tomorrow ! - vanessav87  5.4 #17631 3:45PM
