June 25, 2024

UPDATED 2024. Here at Get Away Today we love exploring all that Orange County has to offer. From two headlining theme parks at Disneyland Resort, thrilling nearby parks like Knott’s Berry Farm, the nearby Universal Studios Hollywood, and back to the Downtown Disney entertainment district, we know narrowing down a hotel is no easy task!

It bills itself as an "Anaheim Waterpark Hotel Across the Street from Disneyland." Now if that doesn't sound like any kid's dream come true, we don't know what is! But the Courtyard is so much more than that.
