    Chose this for the Pirate Cove for my grandson, who is too young to appreciate Disneyland. The room was quite expensive and rather dingy and worn looking. Not a $200 a night room...more like a Motel 6

    Best thing to do is to call the hotel directly because during the winter season times and conditions change! Have a wonderful trip either way.
