Start the New Year- Anaheim Majestic Hotel Blog

New Year’s resolutions are top of mind this week and Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel would like to offer up a few ideas for your 2017 list.

  1. Travel more! According to Bankrate.com, more than half of U.S. workers don’t use all their paid time off. Don’t be in the wrong half in 2017, use those vacation days and plan some family getaways.
  2. Find the fun every day and while you’re at it, create lifelong family memories. Sure, kids remember the big things growing up, but most of all they remember the time we take to make everyday moments fun & magical.
  3. Spend more time with the people that matter the most.

It’s a short list, but we think it has real potential.

What better place to start finding the fun than a family vacation to Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel and a visit to Disneyland® Resort?  New Year’s Eve in the parks is a must do experience. Both California Adventure and Disneyland will have extended hours and special events going on Dec. 31. Read more here on Disneyland’s blog. It is also your last chance to take one more terrifying ride on the Tower of Terror in California Adventure. The ride will close Jan. 2 for its transformation into the new “Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout!” attraction which is expected to open next summer.

We will be cooking up a special menu in the Garden Court Bistro for you and your family on New Year’s Eve and you can always catch the fireworks spectacular with us. Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel has one of the best views outside of the park.

Come stay with us and experience the best of Anaheim New Year’s Eve celebrations. Start your New Year's resolutions off right away and book our Winter Stay & Play package starting as low as $109/night

Happy New Year!

Majestic Year - Happy One Year Anniversary - Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel

Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel. One Majestic Year in the Making.

It feels like just yesterday we were designing new logos, staff uniforms and mission statements for the Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel; that and just about every other decision that comes with a rebranding of hotel. Now we are making plans for an amazing One Year Anniversary Celebration. Where did the time go?

Did you know we went through several names and many logos before landing on Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel? Here are a few of the logo bugs we considered before landing on our well-loved castle bug.

Lots of refining and a little bit of hair pulling and we landed in a place we think is a perfect fit for Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel. But why did we choose to be independent?

Brand hotels strive to give guests the same expected experience regardless of location. But, knowing our guests as well as we do, we wanted something more for them. Despite our size (489 room and 13 acres of beautiful gardens), we wanted to create a boutique hotel experience for families and guests that offers more value and unique amenities that are specific to their vacation needs.  We developed a simple goal; provide excellent guest accommodations amongst a lush garden and castle environment at reasonable rates and infuse our guests’ stay with value-added amenities that are meaningful and that create Majestic Family Memories.

Over the next few months, we will write about some of those specific amenities we think make us pretty special. But in the meantime, take a look at our Anniversary Package just for you. It’s our way of saying “THANK YOU” for your support during our first Majestic Year. 

Anniversary Celebration Package

Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel is celebrating one Majestic year! You're invited to the party with this unbelievable value-added vacation package. Rates start as low as $129/night (double occupancy) for lodging May-August 2016 (based on availability):

  • A traditional extra-large room (upgraded rooms available for an additional fee)
  • Free on-site parking for one vehicle
  • Breakfast for two each morning
  • 1pm Late Check-out
  • Only $10/person for additional guests (includes breakfast)
  • Free WiFi
  • Free shuttle on our Dream Machine from the hotel to and from Disneyland® Resort

Having trouble finding the $129 rate? Call our reservationists at 844.227.8535 for a list of available dates.

 

Olympic fever and August events in Anaheim

Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel is cheering for Team U.S.A., and especially for our hometown Olympians. There are 33 athletes with Orange County ties taking part in the Summer Games in Brazil. Go U.S.A.!

In between Olympic events, you will find that August in Anaheim is filled with big name entertainment, America’s favorite pastime with our own Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, and of course – Disneyland® Park.

Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas will light up the Honda Center on Wednesday, Aug. 17, 2016 with the duo’s FUTURE NOW: THE TOUR. The show will highlight songs from Lovato’s newest album “Confident.”

The Angels will play at home against the Seattle Mariners Aug. 15-18 and the New York Yankees Aug. 19-20. They will meet the Cincinnati Reds at home Aug. 29-31. Come enjoy an afternoon at Angel Stadium or the Big “A” as we call it around here. Tickets are available on the Angels Baseball website.

And there is still a chance to catch Disneyland® Resort’s Diamond Celebration. The 6o year diamond studded celebration comes to a close Sept. 5. If you haven’t seen the spectacular nighttime shows created for the anniversary it’s a must do Disney experience – Disneyland Forever fireworks, Paint the Night parade, and World of Color – Celebrate!

A visit will also give you a chance to try out Soarin’ Around the World, formerly Soarin’ Over California, the iconic ride at Disneyland®Resort California Adventure. Updated with a new adventure and soundtrack, the ride now takes visitors from Mount Kilimanjaro to the Great Pyramids of Egypt and all the way to Australia.

Take advantage of Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel's Anniversary Celebration Package to book your August trip and celebrate the end of summer with us!

Disneyland Resort Summer Tips

When is the best time to visit the “Happiest place on Earth”? Well, when it comes to Disneyland® Park every day is a good day, but admittedly some days are easier than others. The shoulder seasons for Disneyland® Park are late August through October and January till May. But Disneyland® Park and summer have gone together hand in hand, like peanut butter and jelly, since the park opened in July 1955. A summer trip to Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel is a beloved family tradition for many, so here are some common sense tips to beat the crowd rush.

Weekends are generally busier at Disneyland Resort than midweek.

If you are staying at Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel through a weekend, Saturday and Sunday might be a good time to hit the beach and take a theme park break. There are several Southern California beaches that are just a short drive from Anaheim. Newport Beach is located 18 miles from the hotel.

The early bird and all.

button disney tickets gold

Even though your family might grumble, the rule for a visit to Disneyland® Resort is the earlier the better. Both Disneyland® Park and Disneyland® Resort California Adventure are least crowded from opening until about 11:30 a.m. As a Disneyland Good Neighbor® Hotel our guests with a Disneyland Resort 3-day passes or more can also enjoy Disneyland® Resort’s Magic Mornings, which gets you in an hour before the official opening time. You can skip the ticket lines all together and purchase your Disneyland® Tickets at the hotel’s Disney Desk when you check in. Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel is one of the only Anaheim hotels that is an authorized Disney ticket seller. Feel free to purchase your Disneyland®Tickets online before you arrive.

Fastpass or bust.

These magical passes allow you to come back at your appointed time and breeze through the long lines to ride the Disneyland® Park’s most popular attractions. Try not to smile too big as you pass the visitors stuck waiting in the standby line. Caveat, your entry ticket can only generate one Fastpass at a time, and some rides run out of Fastpass tickets early in the day so plan accordingly for your must-do experiences.

Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel Dream Machine ShuttleYour “Dream Machine” awaits.

Disneyland® Resort gets a bit more crowded from noon through the afternoon so hop on Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel’s Dream Machine shuttle and head
back to the hotel for a relaxing lunch in our Garden Court Bistro, a dip in the pool, and a bit of relaxation. It might also be the perfect time for a nap. Then you will be rested and ready to take on the park at night and enjoy Disneyland® Resort’s spectacular nightly fireworks show.

Disneyland Resort is a world of entertainment.

When the lines are just too long, plan to catch one of the fabulous parades or shows with your friends and family. These mega spectaculars, like Disneyland® Resort California Adventure Park’s Frozen in the Hyperion Theatre, are incredible and are the perfect respite on a hot summer day.

Light up the night. Summer brings longer nights.

Disneyland® Resort stays open until midnight and Disneyland® Resort California Adventure Park is open until 10 p.m. The new shows for the 60th anniversary are definitely worth a late night.

Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel fireworks displayThere is still time to take your perfect family summer vacation at Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel and these tips should get you plenty of Disneyland® Resort play-time! If you have questions regarding how to book a room with us, call our reservationist at 844.227.8535 for more information and special rates!

Date Night at Disneyland Resort

A Disneyland® Park Resort Date Night

Romance may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think Disneyland® Resort, but romance can be found all over the Disneyland® Park if that is something that you are looking for during your visit in California.

There are several ways to be romantic at the Disneyland® Resort. 

First up, let’s talk dining!

Romantic Dining

The three Disneyland® Resort Hotels in Anaheim, California each have great dining options within them. Let’s review those before we move into the actual parks.

Recommendations for within the Resort hotels are:

Steakhouse 55– The Disneyland® Hotel 
Napa Rose– The Grand Californian Hotel
Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar– The Disneyland® Hotel - Poolside (This is not so much “romantic”, but a ton of fun. And, the cocktails are excellent)

My recommendations for within Disneyland® Park:

French Market Restaurant– So much about New Orleans Square feels romantic to me and this outdoor patio dining option is great. Try to grab a table on the out skirts, near the railing for people watching and prepare for live music, too. (Counter Service)

Harbor Galley– I didn’t pay much attention to this restaurant for several visits. It blends in with the theme of this area and is easy to miss. And, while the menu is small, the lobster roll is yummy and so are the soup bread bowls. There are a few bistro tables near the walk up windows, but if you walk further around to the right of the building, you’ll find a “secret path” (Counter Service)

Blue BayouDisneyland® Park’s premier dining can be found at Blue Bayou. For decades, people have loved this restaurant. Many years ago, you’d find people in suits and dresses enjoying the ambiance. It’s more laid back today but it’s still very popular. Arrive 30 minutes prior to your reservation time to request a “water front” table. This restaurant is housed inside the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, so you can see the boats float by as you dine. (Table Service)

Cafe Orleans– This restaurant has indoor and outdoor dining. I like both versions, but on a pretty day, ask for a table outside. The pomme frites are divine, as is the Monte Cristo. (Table Service)

The Carnation Cafe – Just off Main Street, this place was one of Walt’s favorites. It doesn’t appear to be entirely romantic, but a table outside, under the red & white umbrellas just feels so cute to me.  (Table Service)

Romantic Spots to Escape the Crowds

Take a look at some ideas for finding little escapes at one of the busiest places on earth.

There are so many more than this….these are just a sample.

1. Main Street.
2. Jolly Holiday Bakery.
3. Snow White’s Grotto – and a great photo op.
4. The patio behind Edelweiss Snacks in Fantasyland.
5. Little nooks in Fantasyland, near the castle.
6. Around the fountain in New Orleans Square.
7. Within the shops of New Orleans Square.
8. On a bench overlooking the Rivers of America.
9. A little nook in Frontierland, near River Belle Terrace Restaurant.
10. Any bench around the “hub”, in front of the castle and near the Walt and Mickey Mouse statue

Sweetheart Souvenirs

I love these cute souvenirs for a date night to remember at Disneyland® Park:

Wedding Ears – The cutest for you Disneyland Honeymooners! Find them at the Mad Hatter on Main Street or in Fantasyland or online for men and women.
Caricature – Artists depiction of you and your sweetheart can be a fun gift to take home. Find artists to make these in New Orleans Square.

Try dressing up together. Matching T-shirts, Funny sayings or as your favorite Disney Fairytale Couple! Enjoy!

Nightly Firework Celebration

propertyfireworks600

We have a secret. Besides having the largest rooms in the area, California's Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel also has one of the best viewing spots for Disneyland® Resort’s spectacular nightly fireworks show outside of the park. Disneyland®  Park has been putting on a summer fireworks show for families since 1956.

For the full experience with music and effects, nothing beats a front row seat inside the park. Disneyland® Resort’s top list of viewing locations are in front of the Sleeping Beauty Castle, Main Street, U.S.A., between Central Plaza and the Main Street Train Station, in front of “It’s A Small World,” and along the Rivers of America in Frontierland.

But, after a full day of Disneyland® Park magic, staying late and jockeying for a prime viewing spot might not be so magical for some families so Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel has front row off-campus locations. The fireworks are visible from the hotel’s parking lot and from the courtyard and pool area.

Other insider spots outside Disneyland® Park include:

  • The tram waiting area by the Mickey and Friends parking structure just up the street from the Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel on Disneyland Drive or near the Downtown Disney parking area, which is free for the first three hours.
  • The Esplanade which is the plaza area between Disneyland® Resort and Disneyland® Resort California Adventure. Consider buying food at Downtown Disney for your friends and family and then settling in for an impromptu picnic in the plaza to check out the fireworks.

July 4th will be an extra special show at Disneyland® Resort with a patriotic grand finale after the Disneyland Forever show. Check out our one-year Anniversary special and take advantage of the Anniversary Celebration Package with rates starting as low as $129 a night through August, including breakfast and late check out. Join us and make some “Majestic” summer memories for the whole family.

If you have questions regarding how to book a room with us, call our reservationist at 844.227.8535 for more information and special rates!
