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 #206 10:46AM
thank you!! do you happen to know why the monorail no longer stops there? - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5206.3 #17 10:46AM
and they used to have dancing there, too - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5206.3 #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 #399 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   12455.6 #2 11:02AM
the fountain show was called Fantasy waters and you can actually still see where it was at the hotel - Dave   12455.6 #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  5936.7 #15 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   12455.6 #2 11:06AM
but yes all the buildings were demolished - Dave   12455.6 #2 11:07AM
Thanks for clearing that up Dave 😃 - Duchess_SMK  5936.7 #15 11:10AM
Really seems like they should reroute the monorail to stop at the Grand and DLH. - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5206.3 #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   12455.6 #2 11:52AM
That would have been awesome Dave - Villescas8  601.0 #303 11:53AM
Epic for sure ::sigh:: - Duchess_SMK  5936.7 #15 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  470.2 #413 4:19PM
@AKAMouse according to Dave, yes it did. Awesome, what did you win??? Lol - Duchess_SMK  5936.7 #15 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  470.2 #413 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  470.2 #413 4:33PM
Agh! Pregnancy brain is not letting me communicate well! - AKMouse  470.2 #413 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 :) - caramiapoohAKAface  3570.2 #32 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  643.3 #278 12:25PM
Thank you for posting. - thegoofster  225.7 #1565 10:47AM
Thanks for reading! - Duchess_SMK  5936.7 #15 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  841.5 #197 10:56AM
Unfortunately no, what did they serve there? I'm intrigued! - Duchess_SMK  5936.7 #15 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   12455.6 #2 12:32PM
Always enjoy the history. Thanks! - Tealtownfan  974.4 #170 10:57AM
I always enjoy you telling me so! Thank you! - Duchess_SMK  5936.7 #15 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  841.5 #197 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  5936.7 #15 11:25AM
Sad to say the only difference between me and the Disneyland Hotel is that the hotel has been renovated! - PrinceCorey  4336.0 #23 11:04AM
Hehe you share a birthday! Happy birthday! 😂😂😂 - Duchess_SMK  5936.7 #15 12:28PM

Awesome post! I remember the dancing fountains :) - SarahLovesDisney  82.2 #3723 11:24AM
I never got to see those! Thanks! - Duchess_SMK  5936.7 #15 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  1114.5 #141 11:27AM
Me too. We always stopped there - E-Ticket  1320.7 #110 11:36AM
I want to see these pictures! Instagram please!!! 😘😘 - Duchess_SMK  5936.7 #15 12:31PM
Thanks for the Memories - E-Ticket  1320.7 #110 11:37AM
😘 - Duchess_SMK  5936.7 #15 12:34PM
as always thank you for the disneyland history awesomeness:) would love if that marquee was still there. - OhanaPhoto  3604.2 #30 11:46AM
I wish they would have kept it up somewhere!! 😢 - Duchess_SMK  5936.7 #15 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  6869.5 #9 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   12455.6 #2 12:54PM
I remember that too - BaseballMickey_CM  6869.5 #9 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  5936.7 #15 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  841.5 #197 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  5936.7 #15 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  59.4 #4206 11:56AM
Oh really?!!! How did they monitor who had admission tickets or just monorail tickets? - Duchess_SMK  5936.7 #15 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  59.4 #4206 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  1205.3 #124 12:31PM
Too bad that sign isn't still around! So iconic! Thanks MyPark! - Duchess_SMK  5936.7 #15 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  1962.2 #69 12:44PM
Me too! It seems me have similar style preferences ScooterMike! As always, thanks for adding your story/info! - Duchess_SMK  5936.7 #15 1:42PM
Thanks for sharing! - mrscttlemstr  297.7 #855 1:02PM
:) - Duchess_SMK  5936.7 #15 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  261.2 #1163 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  5936.7 #15 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  261.2 #1163 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   12455.6 #2 1:45PM
That's awesome. Thanks for posting. - RickChavez  3429.2 #36 1:42PM

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 Monday April 20, 2015

CROWD PREDICTION: Back to short hours this week, and based on our Historical Crowd Index, we see mid-70s with crowds decreasing through the end of the month. There is also a chance of rain toward the end of the week which could throw a wrench in things. Friday and Sunday's have been the busiest days, but rain on Friday could cause the crowds to be significantly less. Have a great weekend! - Admin Apr 21, 2015 11:28AM



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  373.0 #559 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6936 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  122.6 #3044 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  224.5 #1585 5:04PM
Thanks for these updates. I love them!  - Dizkid  362.2 #580 6:07PM
It's Dance the Magic this weekend-always adds to the crowds too!!! - TinkerSchelle  1444.9 #99 8:23PM
What is dance the magic?? - bks4lou  181.2 #2150 4:40PM
Dance studios sign up and dancers come and do a little "pre-parade" along the route. It's cute ;) - TinkerSchelle  1444.9 #99 1:05PM
@bks4lou sorry-I just saw this question ;) - TinkerSchelle  1444.9 #99 1:06PM
thank you. No worries. I just figured out how to find my old comments to see replies :)  - bks4lou  181.2 #2150 8:21PM
I'll sport my hotpants.  - Butterlina  1512.9 #95 11:54PM

any chance you will be welcoming dogs in your outside dining area anytime soon? - MelodyMouse  4020.1 #26 12:24PM
that would be nice - DisneyDavidEMT  2059.0 #64 12:34AM
I heard a law was passed this year that permitted dogs to be allowed in any outdoor dining patio area... someone should look into if this applies lol ... - therealJackandSally  77.3 #0 7:08PM
My dog was welcome there for the MW striker night meet up on Mar 31! - MelodyMouse  4020.1 #26 1:45PM
Scotchie has dined there with us...but he also had his vest on - BombFrogFormerCM  845.3 #195 4:53PM
http://cchealth.org/eh/retail-food/dog-law-faq.php   I know folks love theiri pets but I still do not think this is sanitary  from a food perspective. See the url for CA law. Unless they provide a designated pet area outside, dogs cannot lick the plates/utensils, who cleans up after a dog accident......No pets in at a restaurant for now (service dogs are the exception). Disney is excellent with their food cleanliness in the parks per the Public health inspections. DTD does not fare as well per Retaurarant inspection. Check the Health Care Agency for the current restaurant inspections. As a Public health nurse I always check to see who is keeping clean in their kitchens. Diners beware! - Plumiegirl  8607.1 #3 10:42AM
i asked for MW meet up discount on 3/31 and nobody working knew what I was taLking about but they did give me an ap discount - MelodyMouse  4020.1 #26 4:22PM
