What makes Disneyland the happiest place on earth? Some might say the iconic rides with nostalgic vibes, while others may cite the parades and character sightings (with a Dole Whip Float on the side). But before you hit the road — mouse ears and comfy shoes in hand — you may be wondering where to stay.
With dozens of hotel options, the decision can feel daunting. So we rounded up four reasons to put Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel on your radar this spring. (The reasons might just make you pull that Tigger after realizing there’s no need to stay anywhere Elsa than here.)
Spacious rooms (with a regal touch)
Located less than a mile from Disneyland, the Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel‘s castle-themed building and 14-acres of gardens offers something that’s pretty majestic: an average room size of nearly 500-sqft. Parents traveling with kids will especially love the large rooms and regal touches, like castle bunk beds and plum-colored accents. Making it feel even more like a fairytale is the hotel’s own Princess Corinne.
Direct shuttle to + from Disneyland
The best way to ensure Disneyland stays the happiest place on earth? Avoid things that cause stress and hassle. The hotel offers a free, convenient, direct shuttle service — saving you the money most area hotels charge for shuttle service, plus a chunk of time (think: save 30+ minutes at the day’s start and end by skipping the parking crowds).
Off-season crowds (and prices)
A springtime visit to Disneyland conjures up the most magical phrase of all: fewer people + lower ticket prices. Summer can be busy as families and teens take advantage of no school, but visiting in spring means you get to see more of the park while saving money on ticket prices (yes, you can splurge on lunch at New Orleans Square).
A magical deal
Pro tip: Don’t feel like driving? Take a ~2 hour coastline trip aboard the Pacifica Surfliner.*
