Whether you’re vacationing amid the Craftsman grandeur of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, the mid-century modern classic of the Disneyland Hotel or the seaside whimsy of Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, the benefits are unmatched and truly magical. Conveniently just steps away, you’ll enjoy early admission to one of the Parks every day of your hotel stay with Extra Magic Hour (valid theme park admission and active hotel key card required) and other enchanted experiences such as character greetings in the lobby and Disney-themed elements in the guest rooms.**
A Good Time at Goofy’s Kitchen: For a limited time, the Get Your Ears On – A Mickey and Minnie Celebration is turning dinner at Goofy’s Kitchen into a mouse-tastic event you’ll never forget! Guests are in for an especially entertaining meal as Chef Goofy serves up a heaping helping of fab new fun-filled themed food items, celebratory take-home swag, décor and appearances by Disney’s most legendary love birds, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. Plus, keep your eyes peeled for their good pals, Pluto and Chip ‘n’ Dale! In addition to five all-you-care-to-enjoy stations featuring a variety of delectable fare, Chef Goofy has created some delish dishes that honor Mickey Mouse and his fave lady, including Steamboat Chili, Mouse Ear cookies and celebration cupcakes.***

Create Your Own Animation Cel: Join us in this all-new hotel activity where you can experience what it might have been like to be a Disney Ink & Paint artist! Choose from one of four different images to paint on your cel: Steamboat Willie, Sorcerer Mickey, 90th Anniversary Mickey or Minnie Mouse. Here, you’ll also learn a bit of history on the Disney hand-drawn animation process. This one-hour class at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel is complimentary for Hotels of the Disneyland Resort guests and is recommended for ages 6 and older. Supplies are provided; space is limited and registration is required.
Souvenir Sipper: There are many colorful collectibles during the 90th celebration! One of my favorites is this super cute sipper cup, with Mickey Mouse decked in his birthday hat and sporting a novelty straw. Scoop up this sipper while supplies last at our various dining locations throughout the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort.
Mickey’s 90th Anniversary Coffee Blend: Introducing our newest coffee from Disney’s Retail Coffee Collection, Mickey’s 90th Anniversary Blend is a rich, smooth, medium roast celebrating a true original and only available for purchase at select Hotels of the Disneyland Resort. The 11-ounce bags are available for purchase at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel and Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. What a great gift for the coffee-lover in your life!
Picture Yourself at the Disneyland Hotel: The Disneyland Hotel pays an iconic homage to Mickey Mouse with a giant sorcerer’s hat at its gateway, sculpted topiaries, a penthouse suite and touches throughout that remind us of Mickey. While you’re here, pop-in to this pop-up photo op, located near the lobby, for a selfie to commemorate your stay!
These are just a few of our favorites. What’s your favorite way to celebrate Mickey Mouse and his beloved Minnie Mouse at the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort? See you real soon!
