okay so... we're coming to Disneyland for the AP event on the 14th and against my better judgement booked a room at the Paradise Pier. We usually stay at the Grand but decided to try something new, got concierge level for WAY cheaper than a standard room at the Grand. I'm kinda scared that the room is going to be horrible after reading all the travelocity and expedia reviews.. Have any MWers stayed there? should i change my reservation!? HELP!
I have never personally stayed there but I highly doubt the rooms are horrible. One it's Disney and they have a a high standard and two I see a lot of MWs on here saying a lot of good things. It's hard to hold a trip advisor review as the standard, some people have ridiculous expectations and give a bad review even though it probably had a lot to do with their attitude. I say go for it! See it as an adventure, a chance to see a new part of Disney and take advantage of the views! Hope you have a wonderful stay! - LisaMouse7531   410.1 #463 5-8-12 9:13AM Like(2)  Reply
It's a decent place to stay. The pool deck is awesome for watching the fireworks. - Wizard   81.6 #3647 5-8-12 9:46AM Like(2)  Reply
We have stayed there and loved it! I was thinking of booking it again this summer. I LOVE looking out at DCA, and even better when World of Color is going on (with the WOC tv channel). I thought the rooms were quite nice. 😊 - Sweet_Irish_Cream   3834.5 #25 5-8-12 8:50AM Like(1)  Reply
It won't be the same as the Grand, since it's considered the most economical of the three DL hotels, but there's no way it will be horrible--it's operated by Disney, not the Travel Lodge, lol. I'm guessing that if it got bad reviews, it was because those people had extremely lofty or unrealistic expectations. - Spoonful_O_Sugar   535.4 #328 5-8-12 9:17AM Like(1)  Reply

I have never stayed at a DLR hotel, but if you could afford it...it would be awesome either way! :)

Like others have been saying, I highly doubt Disney would operate a horrible hotel. Some people on those reviews are reeeaaally picky. Or maybe I am just very unpicky.  I have never stayed at Paradise Pier but I have always heard nothing but great reviews from people that I know or from what I have read on MW.  If you are have having second thoughts try to call and get it changed. But I am sure there is nothing to worry about. :) - Jillian   767.1 #202 5-8-12 9:51AM Like  Reply
We've stayed at Paradise Pier many times & love it. It's definitely not The Grand, but still a great hotel. We're booked there again in September for Half Marathon Weekend. I hope you enjoy your stay - VikkiMouse   182.2 #2089 5-8-12 9:56AM Like  Reply
