Guests experiences will now include character princess greetings and lawn games

When the Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel changed its name and flag in 2015 it also introduced a story, “The Legend of the Lair.” Princess Corinne, the star and heroine of the story, which is woven into the walls and carpet of the hotel, is poised to step out of the storybook and begin welcoming guests to the iconic Anaheim property. (

Both a brave knight as well as a regal princess, the raven-haired Corinne, dressed in her favorite sky-blue gown, carrying a mighty sword, will engage guests regularly at breakfast for autographs and photos. Visitors will also be invited to other activities including scheduled story times, face painting sessions, and seasonal celebrations. Princess Corinne will start making her appearances in October.

“Bringing characters to life from our ‘Legend of the Lair’ story is another of the many ways we add magic to every guest’s stay,” said Cindy Smith, the hotel’s director of sales and marketing.

Visitors are immersed from the moment they step into the property as they walk through and read the pages of a storybook that tells how Princess Corinne was saved by Shadow the snow dragon from the evil wizard Sargon and she in turn rescued the injured dragon and brought him to her castle to be nursed back to health. According to the legend, the dragon, whose magical scales make him invisible, was so inspired by Corinne’s courage and compassion, he decided to devote his life to protecting the castle and all who visit. Evidence of Shadow’s presence is suggested in touches throughout the property, including a dragon footprint by the pool and glimpses of him in artwork among the hotel’s walls.

The fairy-tale theme is carried through many of the newly renovated rooms that include backdrops designed to make guests feel like they’ve entered a peaceful, enchanted forest and family suites featuring custom made castle bunk beds.

To add to the family fun, the hotel is offering check out board games, and lawn games like bean bag toss.

Located on 13 lush acres off South Disneyland Drive, the hotel has 489 spacious rooms and suites, more than 26,000 square feet of meeting and outdoor function space, a pool, full service restaurant and bar, a deli and marketplace. The crown jewel of theme parks is just a half-mile away accessed by the hotel’s free Dream Machine shuttle and Disneyland® Resort Park Hopper® Tickets can be purchased in the hotel lobby from the Disney® Desk (translation: no lines). The hotel has the largest guest rooms in the area making it a popular choice for family and business travel. The “majestic” Anaheim landmark boasts three courtyards that feature flowers, fauna, a rose garden and arbor, lawns, and multiple spots for guests to relax in privacy.
