  • [Pictures] Disneyland Hotel Waterslides + Creek + "E Ticket" Pool Construction

    Just got home from a mini-vacation at the Disneyland Hotel. Let me say one thing, these new additions to the hotel DO NOT DISAPPOINT. The slides are incredibly fun, the new landscaping and ambiance created by the Tangaroa Terrace/Trader Sams complex, geyser creek, and pool is wonderful. Sitting on the "Terrace" in large, comfy chairs overlooking the new pools, with the warmth of tiki torches flickering to the rythym of classic tropical melodies. Pictures do not do these additions credit, they must be experienced in person. I read comments about the monorail slides being ugly and visually unappealing. When viewed in person, however, everything blends together and the monorail slides don't really 'stand out' to a point where one could say anything really negative about it. But that's enough about that - just see it in person first before passing off judgement. Overall, the trip was memorable and, well, magical. Based off these few additions, the remodeled rooms, and the unsurpassed level of cast friendliness, the Disneyland Hotel has surpassed the Grand Californian in my book. The reason this expansion should be successful is because it captures the elegance and fun of the original hotel and modernizes it for the modern crowd. It's absolutely wonderful.

    Thanks for the great photos! I do love how the area looks at night. I think we'll get a better sense of the changes when construction is complete and we can see everything as a whole. For now though, I want to try out those water slides....

        It will b quite fun to return come November when construction of the main pool is scheduled to be completed. The watersides (Monorail red, specifically), are outstanding. Slide red's speed is a doozy!

            The new slides do look a lot better at night with the lighting and tikiflames. I'll try to make a visit over there soon. Great looking pictures, by the way.
            I am old. But still love Disneyland.

                  The geyser in the creek area is a wonderful low-key addition. It "erupts" every 20 minutes and the stream of water seems to be about 30-40 feet tall

                  Yes, to tie into the new nouveau-retro theme. The "D-Ticket" pool had D-Ticket tiles bordering the pool which was a nice touch. Can't wait to see what's in store for the larger "E-Ticket" pool this fall!

                    Niiiice! I like the updates and look forward to being there. By any chance is there an elevator to the top of the slides? My brother has a respiratory issue and won't be able to climb those stairs.

                      Unfortunately, no.

                          You need to be a guest at the hotel in order to utilize the pool facilities. The restaurant and bar however are open to all guests.
