    We are planning a trip in December at staying at the Disneyland hotel! We have never stayed there and it's always been a dream that is finally coming true! I was wondering that even though it is in December, will the pool be open?

    Hey there Karee,

    Welcome back to planDisney! I am thrilled to hear you'll be getting the opportunity to stay at my absolute favorite - the Disneyland Hotel. Even better that it will be during the Merriest Time of Year!

    In my opinion, the Disneyland Hotel's pool is the best one around. I love the classic elements but am also a huge fan of Tangaroa Terrace, which is just steps away. I'm happy to report that the pool will be open during your trip and that it is heated!

    I stayed at the Disneyland Hotel last December, and while it was way too cold for this Arizonan, there were quite a few people in the water - it was busier than I would have expected for that time of year. I'm guessing they were from much warmer parts of the country than I am! Having said that, it can get pretty chilly in December - often in the 50-60 degree range, but it's nice to know that the pool is an option if you're up for it.

    You are going to have such a fun time visiting the Disneyland Resort in December, Karee! Thanks again for your question. Make sure to come see us again here at planDisney if you think of any follow-ups. We'd love to help! 

    Have a Magical Day,
