    If I book a room at the regular Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim can I also access the Steam Boat Willie splash pad? Or is that only for guests at the Villas?

    Hello Cindy!

    Welcome to planDisney! The Disneyland Hotel is my very favorite resort, I've been staying there since I was a little girl. I hope you will love it, too!

    Oh boy! I'm happy to say that guests at the Disneyland Hotel are welcome to enjoy the entire pool area, which includes the darling Steamboat Willie splash area that was created with the Villas at Disneyland Hotel. You will need to get a wristband to enter the pool area (there will be Cast Members at the pool entrance to confirm that you are hotel guests) and then you'll be ready to splash the day away!

    Another wonderful addition to the pools at the Disneyland Hotel is the Palm Breeze Bar right next to that adorable splash pad. We love to have lunch there and then go for a swim! The dessert menu there was particularly great when we visited last month. My son loved his fruity mocktail, too! I may have snuck a sip while he wasn't looking...it was really good. 

    You're welcome to explore the lobby of the villas (known as the Discovery Tower) too! If you're curious about Disney Vacation Club there are often guides at the tower who can give you more information and even a short tour of the rooms. They are gorgeous! 

    There are lots of perks to staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel, Cindy! I hope you'll take advantage of early entry, enjoy a ride on the Disneyland Monorail, and check out the activities just for resort guests. Have a magical stay!

    Keep moving forward!
