Question: Which disneyland resort hotel is the best in your opinion? And which is the cheapest?

The Paradise Pier is the least expensive and has the largest rooms. It also has no tram service to the parks, so you have to walk all the way into DL. You can walk through the Grand for entrance to DCA, The Grand is the most expensive and also has the smallest rooms, and is closest to the parks. The Disneyland Hotel is my favorite and after the recent renovation the rooms are great. We've stayed at the original towers for over 30 years including the old garden villas which were demolished when DTD and DCA were being built. Hope this helps. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 11:11AM
I've not stayed in any DLR hotel... Yet. I think I would probably stay at the DL hotel first based on what MWers have said. (And just a hint, it's spelled 'which') - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 10:15AM

Thanks MyPark i just edited it πŸ˜„ - MaestroGoofy  7.8 #13000 10:18AM
Paradise Pier is the least expensive hotel of the three, followed by the Disneyland Hotel, and lastly the Grand Californian is the most expensive. I found Paradise Pier very comfortable and clean and it provides easy walkable entrance into the parks. The other two are more luxurious. Hope this helps! :) - glassslipperCM  123.3 #3160 10:20AM
Yes what silvogue said. Also rates vary GREATLY depending on the time of year/holidays etc. I have stayed in all three and they are great. If you are an AP there are special discount times, I got an email a couple of weeks ago. - ShariRenee  8577.6 #9 10:24AM
Agreed! All the kids and adults loved this hotel! Very laid back beachy themed, its across the street but is actually closer to the park than the Disneyland hotel which was pretty cool cause you get to walk through the Grand and enter through their guest park entrance! - pintsize  290.1 #972 10:55AM
It sure does thanks! - MaestroGoofy  7.8 #13000 10:22AM
Not a problem! Also, each hotel gets you early entry into the parks when it's available. It's great for snagging fast passes like Radiator Springs Racers :) - glassslipperCM  123.3 #3160 10:26AM
Paradise Pier is my FAVORITE!!! We have stayed there and the Grand. There is nothing like the incredible view from the 14th floor w a park view room!! We could see WOC from our window. At night we could lie in bed and watch the lights go around on the Fun wheel. I think a lot of times PP is dismissed as "the cheap one" but I will say that it's my FAVORITE! The view is AWESOME! (From an upper level theme park room) also, the lobby of the Grand is incredible but the rooms, in my opinion, aren't really any nicer than PP. - brittandkell  487.4 #436 10:44AM
I have to agree. I was not overly impressed with our room at the Grand. It was a lovely hotel but if stay at the resort I will try the Disneyland hotel or paradise pier instead. - aidensmama  340.3 #704 2:06PM
The Grand, but only if its a view room. - Tom  11116.2 #6 2:10PM
Just stayed at the Grand. What I loved most is the convenience of proximity to the parks. We've stayed at the DL hotel and these rooms were more spacious and the kids seemed to like these rooms better. Haven't tried the Pier but may try that next. - TamiLovesDisney  129.8 #3049 10:55AM
I've only ever stayed at the Disneyland Hotel and it was magical. We stayed in the Frontierland tower and had a view of the hotel grounds/pool. The pool is great btw, we loved the monorail water slides! Plus Goofys Kitchen is there and the walk to the monorail is so close and convenient. - BettyPoop  237.5 #1500 11:16AM
