    We’re scheduled to stay at Disneyland hotel in early October.can we count in the pools and slides to be open?

    Welcome, Megan! I'm so thrilled you found planDisney for your vacation planning questions and it's an honor to lend some support as you make your plans for your upcoming visit to Disneyland Resort!

    I'm so excited to hear that you'll be staying at the iconic Disneyland Hotel property next month! You'll love the dining options, the classic theming and retro decor, and the nod to Disneyland's history in each of the hotel's towers. There is a lot going on on the hotel property, including the construction of the Disney Vacation Club tower, the Villas at Disneyland Hotel which is slated to open September 28, 2023.

    Now, Megan, here's what I've seen and personally experienced during my stay at Disneyland Hotel earlier this month. Currently, the monorail slides have been closed during the construction of the Disney Vacation Club tower, but my kids loved splashing around the E-Ticket and D-Ticket pools which have remained open throughout the construction project. We even experienced a surprise pool deck party with Pluto and Minnie, for some extra fun in the sun!  I am very hopeful that the monorail waterslides will become available soon, now that we have a reopening date for the Villas at Disneyland Hotel. I'll keep wishing on an evening star that it happens before your October visit!

    I hope this is some helpful reassurance, Megan. I also recommend checking back on the recreation page to see any updates as we get closer to the end of September and hopefully, we'll see some more announcements coming out about all the exciting updates at Disneyland Hotel. I tend to keep my eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the latest news and developments. If we can share any other personal advice as count down the days until your magical visit, please don't hesitate to come back to planDisney!

    Blue Skies and Sunshine,
