Over the last few months we’ve shared with you some of the details from the refurbishment currently going on over at Disney’s Grand California Hotel and Spa in Disneyland. We’ve already seen some amazing shots from the finished rooms and some guests have got the chance to stay there already. Another part of the renovation is the Grand Californian Hotel Pool area, which has three uniquely designed pools, has been redesigned and is now open for the Summer!
The pools were designed to fit within the theme of the Grand Californian Hotel, using many natural stones (hand-lain by master stone masons) to give it a warm and welcoming look. It also uses organic-feeling materials: rustic brown flagstone, and multi-colored brick bands. Of course the Redwood pool wouldn’t fit in at Disney if there wasn’t an awesome water-slide, and keeping with the theme this 90-foot one curves around a giant Redwood tree stump on its way down!
The Fountain Pool uses Golden Flagstone throughout its area. There’s also a fountain in the shape on an urn as the pool’s centerpiece.
Lastly the Mariposa Pool uses a quiet Blue stone set down in a rectangular pattern to give it a long sleek look. There are Private Cabanas available for half or full-day rental.
I really like the style of the new pool area, I’m glad it fits the overall theme of the Grand Californian Hotel. While it’s still undergoing more renovations, at least the guests who are there this Summer have an opportunity to have some fun in the sun!
I want to know what you think about the new Grand Californian Hotel pool area. Which of the three pools in your favorite? Are you planning on visiting the Grand Californian Hotel in the near future? Let us know in the comments section below!
