The Grand Californian, the signature hotel at Disneyland, has recently undergone the most extensive upgrades since it originally opened in 2001. Included in those updates are changes to the hotel’s pool deck in addition to the recent room renovations. Just in time for some fun in the sun, let’s take a closer look at the pool area!
Each pool area was designed with a variety of natural stones and brick to not only create a warm and welcoming environment, but also define three distinct pool settings. In keeping with the Arts and Crafts style of the hotel, the stone work was hand-laid by master stone masons.
The Redwood Pool, with its irregular shape, features earthy, organic-feeling materials, including rustic brown flagstone and multicolored brick bands and slide accents. Situated just behind the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail in Disney California Adventure park, the 90-foot-long water slide curves around a giant Redwood tree stump!
Golden flagstone is used throughout the Fountain Pool. The new urn-shaped fountain serves as the pool area’s centerpiece. Our original turtle fountain can now been seen nestled in the garden as a fun addition to the Craftsman-inspired landscape.
The quiet Mariposa Pool features serene blue stone laid in an ashlar (or rectangular) pattern creating a sleek look. For guests who wish to stretch out and relax, private cabanas line the edge and are available for half-day or full-day rentals.
Ahhh! Looks so relaxing! I would love a day just to spend relaxing in the sun at this updated pool!
