Great family holiday vacation, handy to lots of dining options and walking distance to Disneyland which is fantastic when you need to get changed for changing weather conditions or if you got very wet on one of the rides!! Couldn't fault it.

Excellent, clean hotel right by Disneyland. Less than 10 minute walk to Disney. Staff was so nice! Lady at the front desk rearranged some things so we could have a big, upgraded room for our family of 5.

Very clean, not only the rooms but the hallway as well, I wish we could stay more. Close to Disneyland, just about 10 minutes walk. Highly recommended hotel, you will feel that you're in Disney with their Mickey Mouse-theme rooms

From the resort property to the security checkpoint it’s less than 1/2 a mile. The longest wait will be the check point but no matter where you stay you will have to go through it to get to the parks

Hi there, I'm a fast walker, perhaps a 12-15min walk if you are a slower walker. It's very easy, flat and safe. Two options for crossing the road, I did think the lights take a long time to change for the crosswalk. Enjoy!

Hi. Actually I do not know if it is heated or not. But it is a great location for small children to play the day before they go into the Disney park.
