Disneyland Hotel: Take the Monorail!
Back in the day, you could take the Monorail directly to the Disneyland Hotel. This October 1968 photo shows everyone's favorite sleek form of transportation letting guests off at their destination.
In this March 1969 overhead view, it is easy to see that there was no walking to the Hotel; you were right there. Steps away from the pool. Today, there's a fair amount of distance between the Monorail Station in Downtown Disney and the edge of the Disneyland Hotel property.
These shots that I took in May 2004 from my hotel room window give an excellent modern day view showing just how much the entire property has changed since the 1969 view. A wet parking lot has been transformed into Downtown Disney and The Grand Californian.
