The Carousel Inn is right across the street from Disney’s main gate. You literally leave your room, go just a few steps,cross the street and you have entered the Resort area. The Hotel itself has a Disney Resort feel too. Tinkerbell has sprinkled her magic at The Carousel.
I am sure that many of the Hotels across the street from the resort are nice too but the people who work at The Carousel make it special. They always greet you like you are family and they are happy to see you. They also go out of their way to make your stay comfortable and accommodate your needs.
The rooms are extremely comfortable and clean. Sometimes the housekeeping staff might forget to leave towels but all you have to do is call the front desk and they will get someone to bring you towels right away.
They used to have a continental breakfast on the fifth floor. We loved their breakfast and do miss that. But we just buy food for our room and do just fine.
In the summer of 2013 summer they started something new, breakfast at Pizza Press. It was delicious. Pizza Press did a great job. Pizza Press is the restaurant at The Carousel Inn. They have great food but that is another post itself. They did not offer the breakfast in 2014 which was a bummer but we survived and had just as much fun.
The roof top pool is a great place to kick back and relax when it is too hot at the parks or if you are an annual pass-holder and have black out days. We don't spend a lot of time at the pool because there's just too much to do but there have been a few times when we've decided to go swimming.
They offer internet in the lobby area of The Carousel if you need to go online. You can also purchase the internet in your room but it is a little bit costly. We usually only purchase it when we absolutely have to. I mean, we are at Disneyland so who has time to be online and really who wants to spend a lot of time on the computer?
The Carousel Inn feels like home while we are there, we never want to leave. It is our other home once a year. Actually it feels more like home that home. We have thought about trying out other places in the area but it would just not be the same.
