    What hotel would you recommend that is close to DL for younger kids. We are planning a trip for early December and our daughter will be close to turning 4 at the time and want something she will enjoy while we were back at the hotel relaxing.

    Actually, I was going to suggest the Hyatt Regency Orange County. I have seen pics on line of their kid suites, which look totally awesome. They are not that outrageously priced either. I think if I hit DL again, I will try HROC. Second choice would be the Disneyland Hotel. It truly looks and feels magically Disney.

    On a budget? I like HoJo too for its really cute pool area designed with the kiddos in mind!!

    We just got back from staying at HoJo and my 3 year old son loved the pool! They have a great kids pool and a little spray ground. Our room was rather large as well. It's a bit farther of a walk than where we normally stay (Carousel Inn) but I liked it better and since my kids were in the stroller the walk wasn't a big deal.

    We have stayed at HOJO and the disneyland hotel and loved them both for different reasons. My dd loved the pools at both. If I could choose I would stay at the DLH because of the disney magic, but if price is a consideration, stay at HOJO and you will have a great time.

    For December, I would not recommend the HoJo as the poor child will freeze if she wants to swim.

    The Hilton Suites-Anaheim and Embassy Suites include breakfast and both have decent indoor pools and jacuzzis. Both are on the ART system, so transportation is not TOO difficult.

    One more suggestion--more for the convenience/indoor pool than for the ambience:

    The Desert Inn and Suites is right across the street from the main park entrance, which makes for an easy walk with little ones. You also can get a room with a living room area that's separate from the bedroom, so that you can put kids down for a nap and still relax in the other room without disturbing them.

    Last, it's got an indoor pool. Nothing fancy, but at least you can take swimming breaks. Caution: there's a lot of chlorine in it, so I'd suggest goggles for the kids.

    The hotel is nothing fancy, but it's clean and has a free continental breakfast, and it's CHEAP! We took our kids when they were that age, and it was a convenient place to stay.

    My kids swim at the HoJo in December and January. They do keep it heated. And their dad and I thoroughly enjoy the jacuzzi!
