(Note: This review was from 2012 and taken from my old blog. Portions of this review have been modified and updated to reflect changes at the hotel.)
My wife and I are big fans of Disneyland and all things Disney. We love going to the park and collecting souvenirs, and we’re raising our daughter, Cara, with those same “values.” We’ve taken her to Disneyland two years in a row, and she’s always asking us to go back. This particular trip to Disneyland in 2012 B.C. (Before Cara) was memorable because this was when we found out we were going to be parents! Our home for this trip was the Hyatt Regency Orange County.
Arrival and Check-in
We arrived at the hotel a little after 9pm. I pulled up to the valet area and I was instantly greeted by one of the valet drivers. I explained that I was checking-in and asked if I could leave the car for a few minutes. It wasn’t a problem and I headed inside.
It was really dark and dim in the lobby at this hour, but there was music playing so it kind of created a lounge atmosphere. I hadn’t really expected that but it was different and I liked it. What makes this lobby unique is the all-glass wall that lets in tons of natural light throughout the day.
