Building 1 is always the most desirable and easy to enter and leave to the park. Mimi's cafe is always a a great value as long as you sign up for their eclub. Free entree with purchase with 2 base drinks and theynw give you free to go cups of whatever your having.

"Usually our favorite hotel while at Disneyland"

We go to Disneyland every other month and we love staying at this hotel. The front desk is amazing and always so helpful. The housekeeping is wonderful and very friendly. The rooms are spacious and always immaculately clean. Our family absolutely loves this hotel. However, this last stay we had an issue with staff on the water playground that left a bad taste in our mouth. The main reason we stay at this hotel is for the water park. My four kids love being out there rain or shine. Our youngest child is slightly autistic and has speech delays. She doesn't like the feel of swimwear, so she normally wears a shirt and a swim diaper to the pool. Prior to taking her to the water playground we checked with staff at the front desk to assure this would be acceptable, and also fully read the rules of the playground which stated younger children must have a swim diaper or plastic pants. We were assured that her swim diaper and a shirt was acceptable and she would have no issues. However, when took the baby to the water playground the next afternoon, we were approached by the water playground attendant about 10-15 minutes after the baby had gotten in the water and started playing and informed me that my child was not wearing proper swimwear and we would need to leave the water playground and go to the front desk or gift shop to obtain plastic pants for the child. We informed the staff member that the front desk assured us that the baby's outfit was acceptable, but I ended up having to pull my child out of the water screaming, kicking, crying, wrap her in a towel, and take her to the front office full of people dripping wet and screaming bloody murder to get a pair of plastic pants that looks similar to a grocery bag. We put the plastic pants on the baby who continued to pull them off or it would get filled with water and fall off. We eventually just left and let the baby play in the bathtub instead. It was a very disheartening experience, especially since we checked multiple times before entering the water park to assure we wouldn't have any issues. Our family already has 2 future trips and multiple rooms booked with this hotel for next year, but after our experience we will most likely cancel and book rooms with the Courtyard Marriott across the street. We stayed with them over the summer, as the HoJo was fully booked, and the staff at the Marriott where very friendly, helpful, and accommodating with our child's circumstances.
