Inn-Escapable: California's Great Wolf Lodge

The Great Wolf Lodge is the country's largest family of indoor water park resorts, with 16 water park and lodge offerings spread across the U.S. The year-old Garden Grove, Calif., resort, located about three miles from Disneyland, is the chain's first California venture. You can certainly stay at the resort during your next Disney excursion, but keep in mind that Great Wolf is a giant amusement destination all on its own, so make sure you allow enough time to check out the resort's Northern Lights Arcade, Ten Paw Bowling Alley and Howly Wood XD Theater.
