Want to stay at a water park hotel near Disneyland? Top hotels near Disneyland are upping their game and the biggest trend is on site water parks. If you’re looking to relax in the California sun and enjoy a day or two at the pool during your Disneyland vacation, this article is for you!Best water park hotels near Disneyland

A day at the pool is a must-do part of any sunny vacation and water park hotels near Disneyland are prime options. If you’re spending multiple days in the parks, a pool day can definitely serve as a laid-back, recharge for your vacation. I know a lot of families enjoy taking a mid-day break for a quick swim, like I did (in January no less!) when I stayed at Grand Legacy At The Park.

I also recommend swimming the day of check-in since most hotels give you access to the pool even if your room isn’t ready. This is the perfect chance to get the kids really worn out and then tuck them into bed early so you can arrive in time for opening Disneyland.

Another swimming pool tip: If there’s an outdoor shower at the hotel pool, bring your travel size shampoo and let the kids lather up in their swim suits afterwards. And boom, bath time is done. My kids love showers at the pool and it makes the bed time routine move so quickly.
