Disneyland Hotel History

The Disneyland Hotel first opened on October 5, 1955, a few months after Disneyland Park. Walt Disney exhausted his funding when building Disneyland, so he asked Jack Wrather to build the hotel. It was owned and operated by Wrather until his death in 1984.

The Walt Disney Company was then able to purchase the Disneyland Hotel by acquiring the Wrather Corporation in 1987 and 1988. They sold off most of Wrather’s other assets, including the iconic Queen Mary in Long Beach. Much of the hotel was demolished to make way for Downtown Disney District, which opened in 2001. The loss of hotel rooms was offset by the opening of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa at the same time.

The Villas at Disneyland Hotel, a new Disney Vacation Club property, opened this fall.
