Dec 12, 2013 9:02 AM  Disneyland Talk Land
Good morning! This day in Disney history, December 12th, 2000: the Disneyland Pacific Hotel re-opens as Disneys Paradise Pier Hotel at the Disneyland Resort.

The Paradise Pier Hotel with it’s 15 stories and 489 guest rooms, was re-decorated in a beachfront theme. The hotel was originally built in 1984 as the Emerald of Anaheim and owned by Japan-based Tokyu Group. In 1989 Tokyu group merged its Emerald and Pan Pacific hotel division and the Emerald of Anaheim was renamed Pan Pacific Hotel, Anaheim. In 1995, Disney purchased the hotel from Tokyu Group and renamed it Disneyland Pacific Hotel. The hotel was rebranded as Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel on December 15th, 2000 as part of the 1998-2001 expansion of Disneyland. It was named for the waterfront land in Disney’s California Adventure Park that the hotel tower overlooks. The lobby and convention/banquet facilities have undergone several renovations since the re-branding, most notably in 2004 and 2005.

The December 15th, 2000 re-themed Paradise Pier Hotel offered it’s guests a private entrance into DCA. Does anyone remember this entrance?

The small private entrance featured just a few turnstiles. You needed your room key card or you’d be turned away:
Entrance
But how did you get to this entrance from your hotel? Walk out the front door to the Paradise Pier Hotel to the sidewalk along Disneyland Drive (formerly West Street). Cross Disneyland Drive at the crosswalk, as though you’re going to Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel. Instead of continuing to the Grand Californian, follow signs to a walkway that passes south of the huge American Craftsman style hotel.

Walkway between a parking lot and a wall (2001):

What did you see when you arrived into DCA from the entrance? You’ll be between Corn Dog Castle and Souvenir 66 (now Seaside Souvenirs) in the Route 66 section of Paradise Pier.  I marked a red arrow on the left near the tree to show the exit/entrance.

Did YOU get a chance to use this entrance?

California Adventure’s “third gate” remained in use for only three and a half years. It closed permanently at the end of September 6, 2004. Effective the next day, Paradise Pier Hotel guests going to California Adventure had to use the park’s main entrance or the Grand Californian entrance.

The location of the former private entrance is now a passage restricted to “Cast Members Only.” The parking lot and large grass area in the photos from 2001 were eliminated with the construction of the Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, which opened in September 2009.

For more information, about the Paradise Pier Hotel and what it has to offer

Have YOU ever stayed at the Paradise Pier Hotel? What did you think of it? 

As always, thanks for reading! Hope you all have a terrific Thursday!

I stayed there when it was the Disney Pacific Hotel. I so miss the Japanese restaurant and Mary Poppins' Practically Perfect Tea!  - ythdudette  1297.4 #114 9:59AM
Oh how fun!! I would've loved that Mary Poppins Tea - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5267.4 #16 10:32AM
That's so cool! I would have loved that too! - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 7:03AM
I've stayed there a couple times. Once for my 40th Birthday & then again just this past November for a special 10th Anniversary of an annual trip to DLR during the holidays for me & 4 friends. We had an upper level park view room. It was fabulous! I enjoy the hotel- the beds are comfy, rooms are spacious, CMs are friendly & helpful & the view is to die for. Too bad the private PPH entrance still isn't there. But the walk over to GCH is real easy & using that entrance is great. I'll be staying at PPH again in January for the Tinker Bell Half. It has the best location for the Start & Finish - such easy access.  - Katsza  114.0 #3235 11:53AM
OH! lucky you! I agree, the walk isn't bad, and it's much better then having to go home! Teehee. Good luck with your run! - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 7:11AM
I still haven't stayed there yet since they've re-opened!  I've only stayed at the Grand.  But I've been inside and really like the place.  Thanks for all the great Disneyland info!!!! - DisneyDavidEMT  2174.0 #61 9:06AM
this is going to sound weird, but the last two times we stayed there we loved the way it smelled. LOL like baby powder! - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 7:03AM
We stayed there to celebrate Jack's third birthday and his very first trip to the parks!  I still miss Stitch's breakfast...  It is a nice hotel and offers great views of the fireworks! - BombFrogFormerCM  866.5 #192 9:09AM
It has been I think for a few years...  I think it's now the beach breakfast with Mickey  - BombFrogFormerCM  866.5 #192 4:00PM
we loved that breakfast too! I think it's fairly reasonable priced compared to some of the other hotels on property. The fireworks ARE great from there! - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 7:04AM
Thanks for the info!  We stayed there only once, when DCA was under construction. We had a "theme park view" lol. I want to say DCA was about halfway complete?  The only thing I remember is that the pool was closed and we had to go to DLH to swim.  - PrincessDuckie  817.8 #205 9:16AM
awe! Their is pretty neat too! My mini's love the slide! - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 7:06AM
Yes, we used that entrance several times! People would give us strange looks as we turned to go down the path. Thanks Duchess! - ShariRenee  6202.5 #14 9:37AM
teehee, I bet they did! I never got the chance too! So glad someone on here remembers it! Thank YOU ShariRenee! - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 7:07AM
Thanks for the history - ChristopherRobin661  269.4 #1097 10:15AM
Thanks for reading it! ;) - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 7:07AM
We honeymooned there! Had a great view of DCA! - TheDroidYouAreLookingFor  437.4 #460 10:27AM
awe! What a special memory! Did they do anything neat for you? - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 7:07AM
It was amazing! I don't think we said anything about it so no special treatment but we did get a park view room when I'm sure we should've gotten a view of the parking lot lol - TheDroidYouAreLookingFor  437.4 #460 10:34AM
Great post! I haven't stayed there since Disney bought it, but I did have some of my college program classes in their conference rooms. - BaseballMickey_CM  6970.5 #9 10:29AM
Thanks Sir! Bet those were nice conference rooms! - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 7:08AM
I have never stayed there or been anywhere near it. Interesting that they closed off that entrance – but we really don't know why? Neat to see those pictures of what used to be not so very long ago. Thanks! - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5267.4 #16 10:31AM
I think they should reopen it!  What a great benefit for PP guests! - PrincessDuckie  817.8 #205 10:46AM
I think 9/11 closed it for security reasons. - BaseballMickey_CM  6970.5 #9 11:22AM
Yes BBM, that's what we were told when it closed. - ShariRenee  6202.5 #14 12:53PM
so so sad. :( But I'm glad you enjoyed the photos Churro! - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 7:08AM
HMACIF... I couldn't reply under my post, but they decorated the room as both "indoors" and "garden." Toward the end Mary Poppins would come in and visit all the tables. When I lived down there, a friend and I would go about 2x a year.  - ythdudette  1297.4 #114 11:27AM
I'm going to have to do some research on this! Sound so interesting! Thanks for sharing that! - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 7:09AM
we only gone for the character breakfast when it was breakfast with lilo and stitch although its now surf up with mickey and friends stitch can still be found here - pikarich  3940.3 #27 11:43AM
Glad to hear Stitch is still around! :) Hi pikarich! - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 7:10AM
I stayed there in the 90's. I have a picture of the dl parking lot, empty! a rare sight. When I took that picture I didn't know an entire park would take its place someday. I never got to use the exclusive entrance and I have always wondered where it was, thank you for this post.  - Twitterpated  267.4 #1119 2:55PM
It really is amazing how much the park has changed huh?! An empty lot? ::gasps:: lol Oh your so welcome! Really glad you enjoyed it! - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 7:12AM
I stayed there once. I loved it. The only Disney property in CA I have stayed at. We had a park view room. Loved watching what happens when California Adventure closed. The beds were so comfortable I didn't want to get out of them. - LuvsTigger  1391.3 #108 4:41PM
It always seems to be the least expensive hotel on property so I think we've stayed here the most. I agree! The beds were comfy and seeing DCA after closing was very cool! - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 7:13AM
I think I stayed there for a wedding I was in, with my head injuries I cannot remember everything in my past, so maybe I just dreamed it too, lol!!!:D but if I was there it was a lot of fun!!!!!:D - secretagentangel  1562.0 #95 5:52PM
Oh you crack me up SAA! Hope you're doing well! See you next Friday for the Christmas party right? - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 7:14AM
We've never stayed here before but I'd like to someday!  Thanks, it was very fun to read about the special entrance and see the pics!  I never even knew that existed.   - MinnieMousewife  871.1 #189 8:02PM
Oh I hope you get to someday! No? Oh cool! Happy to share some new info with you! Thanks Doll! Hope you and the family are doing well! - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 7:15AM
We will be at the parks in 11 days....and staying at the Paradise Pier.  We can't wait!! - DisneyFanaticFamily  6.1 #14409 8:42PM
How exciting!!! Hope time goes by quickly for you and you have a magical trip! ::waves:: - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 7:16AM
I knew about the entrance, but I've never technically stayed there, so I hadn't used it.  I did have the stitch breakfast years ago and totally got lost trying to find the hotel.  Never been in the regular rooms, but I've hung out in the suites a couple times.  πŸ˜ - bluefairy  643.3 #282 8:52PM
My mini's loved the Stitch breakfast! ::giggles:: I'm picturing you wandering around Disney trying to find PP. Oh! You fancy! A suite! I hear those are quite nice! ::waves:: Hope you're well sweetie! - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 7:18AM
I thought it was one of the Disneyland hotel buildings...I was wandering the parking lot and everywhere else looking for it.  Plus, we had just checked out of the dl hotel and were running late for our seating, which was the last one of the day.  When we finally got there, my friend's husband (we sent him ahead to hold the reservation) was chatting with stitch, who then chastised us for being late. 😳 - bluefairy  643.3 #282 10:07PM
I'm SO glad you posted this.  I stayed there for a Disney Store manager meeting in Nov or Dec of 2001 and I distinctly remembered walking across the street to enter DCA, but everyone I've mentioned it to told me I was nuts!  I'M NOT NUTS!   - msdizmaui  643.1 #284 1:12AM
Nope! Completely sane! So happy I could clear that up for you! ::giggles:: You're very welcome! - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 7:19AM
always LOVE your posts!!! thanks for sharing! - OhanaPhoto  3663.2 #33 8:31AM

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 June 1, 2015

This Friday marks the first day of the SoCal Select blockouts (that last through the end of Summer). Expect decent crowds this week--our Historical Crowd Index shows high-70s. The Parks are on late hours through the end of Summer and have selectively extended hours in DCA (Sunday and tonight). Things should ramp up on Friday and it should be a busy weekend. We are still at pre-Summer crowd levels, so now is the time to go if you want to beat the big crowds this Summer. Watch MouseWait for real-time Crowd Index updates as the Resort becomes unpredictable this time of year. - Admin Jun 1, 2015 3:19PM



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  398.5 #523 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #7011 11:53PM
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  124.6 #3018 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  228.2 #1552 5:04PM

It's Dance the Magic this weekend-always adds to the crowds too!!! - TinkerSchelle  1524.1 #99 8:23PM
What is dance the magic?? - bks4lou  183.6 #2119 4:40PM
Dance studios sign up and dancers come and do a little "pre-parade" along the route. It's cute ;) - TinkerSchelle  1524.1 #99 1:05PM
