Good morning!
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 at the Disneyland Hotel. It was considered the first major hotel in Orange County. Owned by the Wrather Corporation, the hotel won't be purchased by Disney until 1988

"When Walt Disney was planning Disneyland, he turned to his friend, entrepreneur Jack Wrather, to build an upscale hotel to serve park guests. The Disneyland Hotel opened in October 1955. It wasn’t like the high-rise Disneyland Hotel of today. It was a collection of modern, attractive 2-story buildings. The Walt Disney Company didn’t buy the Disneyland Hotel until 1988" — Werner Weiss

The complex was built by the joint venture 'Hodges and Vandegrift Construction Company'. 'Junior Steel Company' erected the structural steel. Atlas Ornamental Iron Works did the miscellaneous iron and steel work throughout the project which included the signature, decorative iron beams that were key to the modern design of the Disneyland Hotel.

During its first years, the Disneyland Hotel expanded to more than 300 rooms. With a capacity of 1000 guests, the hotel became the largest hotel in Orange County.

The first photo below was taken in 1961 after the tower was built, it shows the Monorail track that was expanded that year to transport guests between Disneyland and the hotel, making it the only monorail in the country to cross a public street at that time. The second photo was taken after 1966 when a new sign was added that read, “Hotel Disneyland.”

the hotels at the resort have so much history. at one point it had golf courses on the property and a lake to fish in too. still very expensive for my taste even with an ap discount the  hotel itself has gone and continues to improve and be remodeled all the time. there's a lounge on the top floor with a glass elevator that is part of the history. before its last remodal which included redo of the pool area with old monorail slides and signage and painting the builings with its new current blue exteriors there used to be a mini fantasy water show at the hotel, an old drive boat which moved over by the esan area and i miss the most was the old glass shop and waterfall and walkwayd that used to be there. visit each tower lobby , each named after a land in the dl park and you can see old photos and props in all of them including a full scale model of the big thunder mountain train and a wall of old presidents and actors that visited the park of old. - pikarich  4440.5 #26 9:26AM
I miss being able to take the monorail over to the hotel. Even though we never could afford to stay there, we used to go over and walk around the grounds and play in the arcade. - DisneyOnesie  621.2 #307 9:39AM
Great post! So much history at the Disneyland hotel. - Admin 8:20AM
Wow, it wasn't DL owned till 88? ย Crazy. I have been fortunate to stay a few times, twice with a large family group. So many fun family memories. ๐Ÿ˜ Although our first stay wasn't till I was an adult I remember visiting the hotel and enjoying the dancing waters and lagoon when I was growing up. It was also a popular spot for dates, as you could take the monorail for a round trip visit without getting off at DL. Our last visit was over ย two years ago when they first started the referb. Love the new rooms, especially the headboards. The pool area was under construction at the time, looking forward to going back one of these years. Love the retro pics, thank you! - PrincessDuckie  859.9 #203 8:18AM
This is awesome. When my mom and then my grandmother first started taking me we stayed in the two floor "cottages." No view really, but nice balconies on the 2nd floor. In 1980 I broke my leg and when we came that summer we started staying in the Bonita Tower (named for Jack Wrather's wife Bonita Granville). I think it's the Adventureland Tower now? We could see the fireworks, Dancing Waters & the Marina from our room. I'd ride the peddle boats and my grandma would watch me from our room on either the 9th, 10th or 11th floors. We also would go to sleep to the sounds of the waterfalls! Great memories. It's changed so much!ย  - ythdudette  1297.6 #121 8:19AM
Thanks for this info! I miss that "hotel Disneyland" sign- seeing it gives me that same feeling i got when I was a kid and so excited to know we were staying there! It's weird to think that my kids will always remember all three hotels! Also, I know these we're added later, but I really miss the pixie dust sparkle lights that used to go across the top of the hotel! - FrozenMommy  57.3 #4329 8:30AM
Yes, fantasy tower, although I've also stayed at the adventure tower, I think.  I like the teacup chairs, the proximity of the room to the check in lobby and goofy's kitchen, and trader sams.   - bluefairy  643.3 #293 8:32AM
I thought of something else. They used to take you by golf cart to your room unless you were staying in the Sierra Tower where you check in. I used to love that!  - ythdudette  1297.6 #121 8:44AM
Cool! - missariel33  2113.5 #66 9:09AM

Such a great post, thanks Duchess!!  We stayed at the DL hotel for the first time last weekend and it was absolutely amazing and magical!  And my kids loved the watersides.   ๐Ÿ˜Š - MinnieMousewife  892.2 #188 9:25AM
I was lucky enough to stay there about 1980, I remember the monorail stop and they had a "massaging" bed. My parents spent a lot of quarters, so I could basically simulate an earthquake in our hotel room. - BeatleMike  635.3 #296 1:02PM
I was at the hotel my last visit, I told them I stayed in the Garden Apartments on a stay in the early 70's. I was told that that was the original hotel rooms. When at the MW Bash, ask me about those early stays.  - Midasgold  627.0 #303 6:46PM
As a kid I used to dream of getting off the monorail and actually stay at the Disneyland Hotel. ย Thanks to generous grandparents, we had the chance to live the dream with our little girls a few years ago. ย Goofy greeted us when we arrived and we were able to watch the fireworks from our room! It isn't something we've been able to afford since, but I am so grateful for the wonderful memories!ย  Thank you for the opportunity to reminisce!!!! - cmogo  74.4 #3920 6:56PM

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

unFORECAST for the week of August 24, 2015
Summer is over, according to the Disneyland Resort calendar. Hours have been reduced for the first time since summer began (Disneyland & DCA closes at 10pm M-TH). Most Orange County schools are back in session today, which usually points to smaller crowds. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 60s (approx 60% capacity) -- it even dipped into the 50s on some days. This data points to lower crowds this week. If you've been waiting for the summer madness to end, this might be your week to hit the Parks! 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 Aug 24, 2015 11:03AM



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  495.8 #399 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7163 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  399.8 #532 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  162.2 #2468 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  239.8 #1421 5:04PM
summer surely has been very busy!  - MarshaMouse  4816.6 #22 12:18AM
I was there this week, Tues, Wed.,Thur. Very hot and muggy. Long lines except single rider lines were great. Because we had 3 days we didn't mind waiting in line. It's so fun to people watch while you wait. We had a great time. Can't wait until next time to go back. - Popcorn  9.4 #10621 9:33AM
