    Thinking about traveling early April. Have a 8 and 3 yr. old daughters. Want to stay at Disneyland Hotel, but pool will be under refurbishment. Thinking about Grand Californinian Hotel, more expensive and maybe not as kid friendly. Advise on what to do?

    Hello Dawn!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope you are having a magical week!

    I’m a big fan of all of the Disneyland Resort Hotels, but have you looked at Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel? It’s usually not as expensive as Disney Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and has a great pool area that overlooks Disney California Adventure Park. The California Streamin’ slide is one of my boy’s favorite water slides as well, so you won’t be short on poolside fun!

    I hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your visit!

    See you real soon!
