    Hi. We are staying at the Paradise Pier Hotel in 2 weeks. This is our first time in a Disney resort. Do we need to bring pool towels? What did you wish you packed that you did not?

    Hi, McKenzie!

    I’m happy to hear you’re planning a vacation to the Disneyland Resort during Halloween Time! Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel is a great choice. The rooms are decorated with bright and airy seaside-inspired furnishings, and the property is just a hop, skip and a jump to the private entrance into Disney California Adventure Park through Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. My son loved the beach ball pillows in our room!

    Guests of Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel can enjoy the scenic rooftop pool and California Streamin' Waterslide, which is reminiscent of a classic boardwalk rollercoaster! Towels are provided at the pool, so you don’t need to pack your own. 

    Although the days can be quite warm in Southern California this time of year, you may want to pack a light jacket for the evenings, which can be cooler and windy. Be sure to bring a couple different comfortable footwear options, too. You’re allowed to bring your own snacks and beverages into the theme parks, so we always pack some light snacks and bottles of water to carry in with us. 

    I hope this helps, McKenzie, and that you have a wonderfully pixie-dusted Disneyland Resort visit! 

    Wishing you magic,
