Trivia

  • When the Sierra Tower was first constructed, the off-center placement of an exterior elevator shaft facing West Street (now Disneyland Drive) created space constraints which required the sign mounted atop this side of the building to read "Hotel Disneyland." The tower was expanded several years later and the sign was changed to correctly read "Disneyland Hotel." The sign was removed when Monorail Plaza was demolished and replaced with a mural featuring shooting stars.
  • The remaining "Disneyland Hotel" signs atop the Marina and Bonita Towers were removed in December 2005.
  • Signs from several of the stores and restaurants demolished with Monorail Plaza were retained and are on display in the hotel's employee cafeteria. Included is a large "End of an Era" posterboard signed by visitors and employees of the venerable Monorail Cafe during its last months of operation.
  • The Disneyland Hotel was one of the first hotels in the region to offer accommodations for four persons per room.
  • Two locations at the hotel are named after Jack Wrather's wife: Bonita Tower (her first name) and Granville's Steakhouse (her maiden name).
