    The hotel pool should suffice.

    Not a fan of the water park, or is it just that bad?

    Not a fan of any water park. I think it's all that stair-climbing.
    And the cost, versus the hotel pool.
    Certainly I enjoy a "lazy river" where I can sit in an innertube and float around for hours at a time.
    But that's just me.

    Re: Getting to the beach.

    And it depends on the time of year that they are going. If they are going now, they should not go into the ocean without a heavy wetsuit. My sister in law went scuba diving off of Laguna recently and the water was 51 degrees!

    Obviously in the summer the water is tolerable, but still surprisngly colder than what would be expected, perhaps topping out at 70 degrees. Out of towners assume that because So Cal has a warm and sunny climate that the ocean temps would be nice and warm. Not true at all. Ocean currents rotate clockwise and So Cal is still effected by the cold current that sweeps southward from Alaska.

    The water parks in the winter are closed so the hotel pool will be the best choice in this case. In the summer they could try Soak City or Wild Rivers, as those are only open during that season.

    They are trying to decide between early July and Late August. Also, your silly Fahrenheit means nothing to me. :P

    Coming from Utah, I do want to take my son to the beach, even to just get his feet in the sand and maybe a little wet... Which beach is the best we don't want to go far, but we will have a car. Thanks

    Re: Getting to the beach.

    I would leave Disnseyland going south on Harbor Blvd. and head west on the 22 to Beach Blvd., then exit and head south toward Huntington Beach until you run out of road.
