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  1593.7 #128 9:59AM
Oh how fun!! I would've loved that Mary Poppins Tea - misschurro  9184.9 #12 10:32AM
That's so cool! I would have loved that too! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 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  124.4 #3295 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  6631.6 #23 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  2835.9 #59 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  6631.6 #23 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  1090.9 #199 9:09AM
It has been I think for a few years...  I think it's now the beach breakfast with Mickey  - BombFrogFormerCM  1090.9 #199 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  6631.6 #23 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  954.8 #229 9:16AM
awe! Their is pretty neat too! My mini's love the slide! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 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  14185.6 #6 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  6631.6 #23 7:07AM
Thanks for the history - ChristopherRobin661  281.1 #1165 10:15AM
Thanks for reading it! ;) - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 7:07AM
We honeymooned there! Had a great view of DCA! - TheDroidYouAreLookingFor  480.2 #501 10:27AM
awe! What a special memory! Did they do anything neat for you? - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 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  480.2 #501 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  8883.7 #14 10:29AM
Thanks Sir! Bet those were nice conference rooms! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 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! - misschurro  9184.9 #12 10:31AM
I think they should reopen it!  What a great benefit for PP guests! - PrincessDuckie  954.8 #229 10:46AM
I think 9/11 closed it for security reasons. - BaseballMickey  8883.7 #14 11:22AM
Yes BBM, that's what we were told when it closed. - ShariRenee  14185.6 #6 12:53PM
so so sad. :( But I'm glad you enjoyed the photos Churro! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 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  1593.7 #128 11:27AM
I'm going to have to do some research on this! Sound so interesting! Thanks for sharing that! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 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 - pikaplaid  7500.0 #16 11:43AM
Glad to hear Stitch is still around! :) Hi pikarich! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 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  278.6 #1192 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  6631.6 #23 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  1684.4 #118 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  6631.6 #23 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  11195.0 #9 5:52PM
Oh you crack me up SAA! Hope you're doing well! See you next Friday for the Christmas party right? - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 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  928.2 #235 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  6631.6 #23 7:15AM
We will be at the parks in 11 days....and staying at the Paradise Pier.  We can't wait!! - DisneyFanaticFamily  6.1 #17350 8:42PM
How exciting!!! Hope time goes by quickly for you and you have a magical trip! ::waves:: - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 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  643.8 #363 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  6631.6 #23 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  643.8 #363 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  1024.3 #219 1:12AM
Nope! Completely sane! So happy I could clear that up for you! ::giggles:: You're very welcome! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 7:19AM
always LOVE your posts!!! thanks for sharing! - OhanaPhoto  7033.1 #20 8:31AM

It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people.

14 more days and I shall be entering in wait times for the first time( I was slow and shy to post). Well actually it will be 15 days. The first  day we check in and go to Trader Sam's. πŸ˜‰ - varela2892  103.6 #3717 7:14AM
I just want to thank all the newbies who are on the list so much lately! This was started as a wait time and more app so by your starting out from the beginning doing wait times is awesome! 2/3of my points are from wait times. I make a game of it and have fun doing them. Hope everyone tries it, it helps others and you earn credits!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ - secretagentangel  11195.0 #9 9:06PM
Half of my points are from wait times.  - Goofytom  4485.6 #39 10:28PM
I figure it is the least my wife and i can do, plus it is great exercise! I keep saying, one of these days we will go to one of the meet-ups. We generally only go on Saturday and sometimes Sunday as well. That darn thing called 'work' just gets in the way!  - oiler2112  1293.0 #156 7:07AM

I only post wait times if I've actually gone on the ride..( with the exception if the line is extra short, or extra long..) I try to give folks a heads up. Most of the time I have trouble posting times in certain areas of the park so I get frustrated... - carminaire  1045.9 #212 1:19PM

Just installed the MW app on my new phone yesterday. This will be very helpful for me since I am used to the android version. Thank you. - teapotsandteacups  4007.0 #46 11:41PM
This was helpful.. But I'm still having an issue posting to pics to the loungeπŸ˜‘ - 1Minnie58  7.9 #14286 10:12AM
I've had a lot of trouble with platinum version. It seems to "magically" close itself at random times. The most common random closes are: after updating ride or food times, after clicking on a different feature in the app, or immediately after opening. I generally have to re-open it 2-3 times, at which point it stays open until I've made my update, but if I stop using it for more than 5 minutes and go back to it I have to go through the magical closings again. πŸ˜“ - Mouse28  946.6 #231 9:06AM
I never had that issue with the free version.  - Mouse28  946.6 #231 9:06AM
I had the same issues more so in the park  - Plumiegirl  10818.7 #11 5:42PM
