Disney has just announced that the flagship hotel of the Disneyland Resort — the Disneyland Hotel — is reopening in just a few weeks. Get all the details here!
When Does the Disneyland Hotel Reopen?
The Disneyland Hotel will reopen on July 2 after a closure of well over a year. So far, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa reopened on April 29. Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel will reopen on June 15. So the reopening of the Disneyland Hotel will mean that all three onsite hotels at the Disneyland Resort will be open once again, albeit at a limited capacity.
What Will Be Available at the Disneyland Hotel?
When the hotel reopens, many amenities will be available for Guests, including the swimming pools and waterslides, the cabanas, the pool bar, and the fitness center. Select dining locations will be open, as well. When the hotel reopens, Guests will be able to enjoy Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar, Tangaroa Terrace Tropical Bar & Grill, and the Coffee House. You can also get delivery from select dining locations within the Downtown Disney District. Keep in mind, however, that Disney has not yet announced a reopening date for Goofy’s Kitchen (the character dining buffet) or Steakhouse 55 (the signature restaurant) at this time.
Below is the official announcement of the hotel’s reopening on July 2, which also states that reservations can be booked starting today! The announcement also states all of the new and returning magic that Guests can expect as many hotel improvements were made during the extended closure:
More of the magic is returning! The phased reopening of the Disneyland Resort moves another step forward as the Disneyland Hotel, Disneyland Resort’s original hotel, reopens on July 2, 2021 with limited capacity. You can make room reservations now for your next memorable vacation at this landmark AAA Four Diamond hotel, immersed in the magic of Disney day and night!
Staying in the Fantasy Tower is enchanting, where the nostalgia of Disneyland, touches of pixie dust and “hidden” Mickeys meld with the hotel’s mid-century modern design. Initially, the Fantasy Tower will be the first Disneyland Hotel tower to reopen. In all guest rooms, one of my favorite features is the headboard that lights up with fireworks and plays, “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes.” It’s so special!
During the closure, the upholstery and fabrics throughout the guest rooms, lobbies and meeting rooms were refreshed and updated. The guest rooms now feature a fun new fireworks pattern in the carpet and upgraded platform beds to help maximize storage. The corridor flooring features new patterns inspired by the art of Mary Blair with graphic elements recalling the park lands each of the towers are named for.
During your vacation, stroll the Disneyland Hotel’s gorgeous grounds, take a cool ride down the Monorail waterslides, swim in themed pools, take a dip in either of the Mickey and Minnie spa whirlpools, relax in a cabana* or at the pool bar, or get even more steps in at the fitness center!

How Much Will the Disneyland Resort Hotel Cost Per Night?
So, if you want to stay at the Disneyland Hotel, how much will it cost per night?
We did some research and found that it will cost you quite a bit if you want to stay on reopening night. It will cost almost $600 to stay at the Disneyland Hotel in a standard room on reopening night. Upgraded rooms will cost over $700 per night.

More Information on the Disneyland Hotel and Disneyland Resort Reopening
Note that the Disneyland Hotel will reopen just over two weeks after the State of California plans to lift many pandemic-era restrictions. California Governor Gavin Newsom said that on June 15, we will see big changes to the face mask mandate and other restrictions in place. We also know that Disney is prepared to continue to increase capacity at the Disneyland Resort theme parks as soon as they are allowed to do so.
Could this mean that out-of-state Guests could be welcomed back to the Disneyland Resort very soon? Only time will tell, but we will report back as more information is released. The official announcement of the reopening of the Disneyland Hotel makes no mention of the California-residents-only rule, but that policy is currently still listed on the top of the Disneyland Resort official website at the time of this article’s publication.
Remember that a hotel reservation does not guarantee entry into the Disneyland Resort theme parks. In order to visit Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park, a valid ticket and a theme park reservation are required. However, booking a stay at an onsite hotel is incredibly magical, so we recommend working with the Authorized Disney Vacation Planners at Academy Travel to make your Disney vacation dreams come true.
