The classic DisneylandÃ‚Â® Hotel and the beach-themed DisneyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Paradise PierÃ‚Â® Hotel will become non-smoking properties beginning March 1, 2006. This change is being made to accommodate increased requests for non-smoking rooms.
Over the years, the Disneyland Resort has gradually reduced the number of smoking rooms in its hotels due to a lack of demand. Today, the Resort receives an average of only two requests for smoking rooms per day. In fact, there are currently only 35 requests for smoking rooms on the books from now through 2010.
Due to high occupancy levels, many non-smoking Guests have had to be placed in smoking rooms in the past, which causes dissatisfaction. These rooms are now undergoing an extensive cleaning process that will have them Ã¢â‚¬Å“smoke freeÃ¢â‚¬Â by March 1, 2006.
DisneyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Grand CalifornianÃ‚Â® Hotel remains a non-smoking property. This applies to all Guest rooms and interior public spaces. Based on the successful non-smoking policy already in effect here, both the Disneyland Hotel and DisneyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Paradise Pier Hotel will soon feature nearby outdoor areas designated as permissible smoking zones for Guests who wish to smoke.
