When you get in trouble and you don’t know right from wrong
Give a little whistle! Give a little whistle! – Jiminy Cricket

Q.  My husband is handicapped but we are taking our grandson, so I thought the themed room would be nice for him at the Disneyland Hotel. Do they have a handicapped room with themes for the kids to enjoy?  (Submitted by Mrs L.)



A.  Hello  Ms. L!

I have wonderful news for you.  All of the Disneyland Resorts are themed, including the one you mentioned, the Disneyland Hotel!  Of course, the question is, with the three different options to choose from at Disneyland Resort, which one is right for your family’s tastes.

Paradise Pier Hotel is themed after a seaside resort with lighter colors (featuring blues and greens) and even decorative pillows in the shape of beach balls.    It really is a seaside themed retreat and one of the nice features is that some rooms look over Disney’s California Adventure!

The Grand Californian Hotel and Spa is a bit more rustic, with a woodsy feel to it.  Featuring colors of reds, greens, browns and woods, this resort feels like you’ve gone to a luxurious camping lodge in the Pacific Northwest.  (For those who have been to the Wilderness Lodge at Walt Disney World, the two are very similar in feel.)

The Disneyland Hotel is themed a bit more modern, with a classic twist.  The rooms include a light up headboard with fireworks over Sleeping Beauty’s Castle.  Elegant dark woods, dark blues and gold accents give the rooms a bit of a regal feel.  Of course,be on the lookout for quite a few hidden (and not-so-hidden) Mickeys!

Of course, all three resorts have handicapped accessible rooms which have the same theme as a standard room so you should have no problems there.  Just be sure to let your travel agent know that you will need one of these rooms so that they check availability.

Really, the hardest thing you have to decide, is which resort will your grandson enjoy the best!  Make sure to check out more info about all three resorts here:
