This is our fourth time here and first time staying at Disneyland hotel. Pros: Merry Stitchmas Pirates of the Caribbean Christmas parade Tree lighting Snow on Main Street Big thunder mountain It’s a small world Ratatouille ride Cons: Disneyland hotel - needs total refurbishment. No water during many parts of our stay. Run down and dirty. Very sad considering how much we spent here. Mickey and magician - maybe we had a bad show but this fell really flat and we did not understand why other people thought this was good. Smoking - oh man, so many people smoking everywhere - no regards to the rules of where they could smoke. Children on shoulders - why do they all do this and block everyone standing behind them for shows? General upkeep - lots of trash and not enough cast members to clean up and direct people. There needs to be about 2-3 Times the number of cast members. Sounds more negative. It really was kind of a bad trip. We had such high expectations for their 25th anniversary but there Park was dirty and the hotel was really really bad. There were certain things we loved on the Pro list - and the castle is absolutely beautiful!! But it will be a long time before we return - we are so enamored with the Asian parks - this one pales so much in comparison.
