  • [Chat] Spending time at the resort hotel, when you could be at the park?

    I never understood this.

    I have usually stayed at off-resort hotels, but last time at the PPH like we will next week. Now ... for the first time we might "actually" use the pool at the PPH, because some days are open at 10 and close at 8.

    But It will still be thin time at best. (shower/sleep/shopping/etc.)

    Am I normal? Or not?!!

    It's normal, in my opinion. That being said, if you don't have an annual pass, booking the hotel for a family is cheaper than buying an additional day to the park (in some cases). If that's the case, why not stay at the hotel and just drop by DTD if you wanna go out?

      Maybe a little mixed up.

      I use the resort or hotel pools on long visit, when I have plenty of time in the parks. Most often when hours are long and in the afternoon when lines are the longest. Of coures a pool may be novel to you, the kids have one at home, but they love the waterslides.

        It was only after I got an AP that I'd consider spending time at the hotel. And then, only if it was a Disney hotel. On occasion, I even planned a visit so I was there over a blackout day, so I had no choice but to enjoy the hotel more.

        However, if time is limited, I want to be at the parks from open to close, and not hanging around the hotel.

        No matter where you go, there you are.

          There is nothing wrong with that. There are tons of people vacationing in Southern California who do not have an annual pass. Let's say they were here for 5 days and only bought a 3 day hopper. The other two days they could be either lounging around the pool or seeing other sights or any combination thereof.

            Yeah, I don't have a pool at home, but, if you have a choice between a pool and the park? Man... that seems like a no brainer to me.

              I usually loiter with the fam in the lobby of the Grand Californian. It's a nice place for our 3yr old to take a nap and to rest our feet.
              The lobby has become a part of our trip to the DLR.
              With kind regards,
