In the Summer of 1995, my wife and I stayed at the Disneyland Hotel. We were expecting a normal room, hopefully one with a good view. (This was before DCA and DTD mind you.) We were overwhelmed when one of my very good friends who was one of the managers of the hotel surprised us by putting us in the Honeymoon Suite.
Since that time, I've always been a bit confused because I remember the room number being nine hundred and something but I would have SWORN the room was on the top floor concierge level in the corner with windows on two sides of the room.
So I decided to investigate. But after looking repeatedly on Disney's website, there seems to be NO information about this suite. No photos, no description, no nothin. The website mentions the Presidential Suite, the Ambassador Suite, the Penthouse Suite, California Suite, the Marina Suite, and the Concierge level, but no mention of the Honeymoon Suite.

I then went over to the Disney Wedding page assuming the information must be there....but no dice.
I DID find the following account over at Mouse Planet from a couple who went in December of 2002:
So by this time, I'm beginning to get curious. Why isn't the Honeymoon Suite linked on either of these pages? Do people know about this incredible room? How do they market this suite if no one knows about it?Then we were off to our room next door, and what a room/suite it was!!! Immediately as you enter the suite there is a closet to your left, a built in vanity table and chair and the bathroom door in front of you, and a short hallway to the bedroom on your right with another closet. The bathroom was huge with a wall of counters with two sinks, assorted Disney toiletries (including a toothbrush), a coffeepot with glass dishes of coffee and filters, a hair dryer a phone and even a scale. To the right was a large glass shower, around the corner from that was a separate room with toilet and even a bidet! Along the back wall of the bathroom was a huge Jacuzzi tub surrounded by tile ledges and a large plant. It was beautiful – special touches like wallpaper that had the Fab Five as hedge topiaries made it even better. As you walked into the bedroom the first thing you see is a towering Christmas tree decorated with blue and gold ornaments and ribbon beside a huge Entertainment center. The doors of the entertainment center had a copy of the original concept drawing of Disneyland done by Herb Ryman. Inside was a TV, VCR, mini-fridge and the ice bucket with four glasses. Next to this is a wall of windows going around the corner so that you see a beautiful view of Downtown Disney in the center, Disneyland to the left and California Adventure to the right. In front of the wall of windows is a comfy chaise lounge. Facing the windows is the huge California King size bed with headboard (the headboard had a drawing of the Sleeping Beauty Castle) and a comforter that at first glance looked like a regular hotel-issue floral one, but upon taking a closer look you could see light brown drawings of the many attractions of Disneyland in the background. In the front left corner surrounded by windows there was table with two chairs, and in the back left corner a desk with chair and phone. Another phone was next to the bed along with a CD player/clock radio. All in all a most amazing room!
Not finding any help on the internet, I made the trip to the hotel to look for myself duing one of my recent trips to DL. From my recollection, the suite would have been on the top level of the Sierra Tower in the upper right hand corner as you look up from Downtown Disney:

I took the elevator up to the 11th floor, which I remembered was the concierge level:
When I arrived on the 11th floor, I found the room that we stayed in almost 12 years ago:
I also found the source of my confusion as the room number was 2937. After checking the receipt back home, I confirmed that this was the room.
My other question to you all: Does ANYONE have any photos of this room? I've spent a few hours looking for photos but it seems as if they do not exist.
I just don't get it. One of the BEST views in the DLR, giant bathroom, honeymoon sized jacuzzi tub, Mickey bathrobes, conceirge ammenities right down the hallway, key for the glass concierge elevator that runs only to the 11th floor.....
Why aren't they marketing this room?
