  • HOJO vs. Paradise Pier?

    This is my first time posting, but I have been reading and learning a lot - thank you!

    I am having a hard time making a decision and I thought I could get an opinion from some experienced Disney-goers. I will be visiting Disneyland with my two 6-year-old twin daughters in mid-June. I have a reservation at the HOJO already for a premium disney view room. I had been debating between HOJO and Candy Cane, which would have been a little bit cheaper, but the kiddie pool won me over (and the possibility for a fireworks view from the hotel room, as I will be there by myself and don't want to navigate those crowds with the girls that late). Although that free breakfast option and shuttle haunts me :-)

    I then looked at some of the new special offers available at the Disney hotels. There's an offer for the Paradise Pier that would be just about $50 more (factoring taxes and park hopper tickets into both deals). Any thoughts on Paradise Pier vs. HOJO given those deals?

    How many nights are you staying? I have stayed at all three. Paradise pier is wonderful if you intend on spending most of your time in your room, its a lovely experience and has a great view of paradise pier although the construction may be an eyesore, but at night it is very beautiful. The hojo is great after a long day you can sit out on your patio and watch the fireworks and then just go inside into your room, plus if you leave your blinds open you have a great disney view all night long. I would not stay at the candycane either Hojo or Paradise pier.

      Thanks so much for replying. We're staying for 5 nights, and will probably get a 5 for 3 park hopper either way, so that should leave us with the option to return to either hotel midday for some down time.

          the only draw back on the hojo --and it's not a big deal really..but it didn't have a buffet breakfast..

            So you will be spending around 50 dollars per night more if you stay at the Paradise pier hotel

              No, $50 more in total. When I compare what I'll pay for room and tax for HOJO vs. the package for PP, it's a $50 difference. That's what's making me think. It's a standard room at the PP (and a premium room w/ disney view at the HOJO), so we wouldn't have the fireworks view from PP, and I think the pool at the HOJO may be more up my daughters' alley (they're 6). But the price difference is so small that it's really made me ponder the change. I'm getting the mousesavers rate at HOJO, which I think is same as the miceclub discount.

                I would go with Paradise Pier since it's only a $50.00 difference total. Then you could experience a Disney hotel at least once. But then again I've always wanted to stay on property just to be able to experience it once.

                    My rate was…$92 for the room for one night. Standard double queen beds.. but with my AP rate I got it for $75, plus tax and it came out to a whopping $83 dollars.. still is not a bad deal!
                    It just goes to show that Hojo has the better deals!! I was like you and wantd to stay at the PP and they wanted soo much for the room, resort tax and fee etc.. I was like no thanks!

                      Man I truely love the hojo and have stayed there more than half a dozen times, but for 50 dollars more I would stay go to the paradise pier hotel, I hate to send work away from the hojo because I love the place and everyone there, but really I would choose the Paradise pier, especially for that long of a trip, You get a magical feeling there, next time go to the hojo.

                          But you got to be agreeable! If she/he is on a budget with her/his family then the hojo is the way to go!!

                              $50 isn't a huge deal, it's the experience that I'm interested in.
