^ Oh cool. We took a look inside it, but didn't eat there.
and this description...
Main Street courtyard restaurant featuring American comfort-food dishes inspired by Walt Disney.
We're so used to what Disneyland Paris has (the in-the-back enclosed Arcades), that it's a bit of a challenge to accomplish the same thing in Disneyland. It can be done, but there are a few obstacles (like the Cafe) that block a through-line in the Disney shops. The same happens on the other side with the Marketplace, but it has a back entry from a shop, so that's good.
Hello everyone, I'm taking my first visit to Disneyland since high school grad night (I don't recommend that) 25 years ago. The main reason is to take my daughters (ages 8 and 9), who have never been before. We'll be going mid-week in February to avoid the crowds (2/11 & 2/12). I'm hopeful that those will be dead days at the park. I do have a question regarding accommodations. We will be staying on property, as we want to have the full experience. I'm trying to decide between the Disneyland Hotel and Paradise Pier (Grand Californian is just too expensive for us). So, my question: What's the difference between the two hotels? I see that they both offer the early entry, and DH is 1/10 mile closer to the gates than PP. However, I'm not sure what other differences there are (aside from what I just mentioned, and the price). I'm leaning towards DH, simply because of the history. But, I'd like to see if the higher price than PP is worth it. Any insights you all can give would be most appreciated. Thank you. -Doug
Disneyland Hotel has a monorail station in easy walking distance of the hotel towers. You need admission to Disneyland in order to board, but it lets you off in Tomorrowland. For some, this alone justifies the higher price.
Paradise Pier was also a conversion of an older hotel into a Disney Property. If you're going to go for the first time in 25 years and with your girls, go for the Disneyland Hotel. There is something just kind of more special about it.
^ and ^^, thanks for the advice. I booked the Disneyland Hotel last week. The history was what convinced me. Thanks for the advice. I'm very excited about the trip (even if the Haunted Mansion will be closed for an extended rehab).

You won't be disappointed. The remodel they did really took the rooms from dated to Disney deluxe quality.
