Orange County health officials said nine people who visited the Anaheim theme park in September developed the disease.
One of the three cases of the respiratory illness not linked to Disneyland was fatal in an individual who had additional health issues, said Jessica Good of the Orange County Health Care Agency.
The people were between 52 to 94 years of age.
The outbreak was traced to the convention hotel's air conditioning system, and Legionnaire's disease has since been sourced to contaminated water or mist. People who develop symptoms may experience fever, cough, chills, shortness of breath, headaches, muscle aches and diarrhea.
Nine had visited the theme park and the other three, including the deceased, lived in Anaheim, but had not visited Disneyland California.

"These towers were treated with chemicals that destroy the bacteria and are now shut down", said Hymel.
The agency said there is no known ongoing risk associated with the outbreak. But in large concentrations, often due to stagnant or improperly sanitized water systems, the bacteria can be transmitted through inhaling contaminated water vapor.
The water towers are situated in a backstage area near the New Orleans Square Train Station, and are more than 100 feet from areas accessible to guests, according to a Disneyland Resort spokeswoman. One patient, who hadn't visited the park, has died, the agency said. An employee working in the facility also got infected with the same disease. Older people and those with health issues are particularly at risk.
After conducting routine testing a month earlier, Disneyland authorities detected elevated levels of Legionella in the two cooling towers and performed a thorough disinfection of the towers at the time. The towers were taken out of service November 1, disinfected, went back in operation on November 5 but were shut down again Tuesday and will remain offline until tests confirm they are free from contamination, according to the park and the county health agency.
