Howard Johnson Anaheim Hotel and Water Playground Review

We received a complimentary stay at the Howard Johnson Anaheim Hotel and Water Playground in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are 100% our own!

I am so excited to finally share more about our most recent visit to Disneyland!  It's only been about 3 months since we went, so this is long overdue.  We were lucky enough to stay at the Howard Johnson Anaheim Hotel and Water Playground (or HOJO for short!) for this trip to Disneyland.  It was the perfect choice for us!  Our last two visits to Disney, we stayed at VRBO's. While the extra space was nice, I loved being able to walk to the parks vs. driving.  It took quite a bit of our time up looking for parking, walking to the parks, security etc.  Staying at the HOJO, we were a quick 8 minute walk to the park.

We stayed at one of the newly remodeled rooms, and it was beautiful!  The decor was so fun and just the perfect amount of Disney decor.  The girls slept really well too, and our room was really quiet.  Our room also overlooked the park, so it was the perfect spot to watch fireworks.  We had an adorable gift box full of goodies for the girls in our room.  It's a perk for people who stay with HOJO often!

When we needed a break from the park, the HOJO Anaheim had an amazing water playground!  The girls had a blast, and we were able to relax a bit.  It's such a fun spot for the littles!

Like I said above, the HOJO Anaheim was a quick 8 minute walk to the park.  It was really nice because there was a McDonalds and Panera on the way for a quick breakfast or lunch.  We had a car, so we were able to drive to Target to pick up water, snacks, and iced coffee.  Our hotel had a fridge and microwave which was super nice.  It was nice to enjoy our iced coffee on our walk to the park each morning!

we got a lot of questions on our stroller and it's linked here! We love the skateboard option so one of the girls can ride on the back and we don't have to lug a huge double stroller with us

I really can't say enough good things about the Howard Johnson Anaheim Hotel and Water Playground!  We can't wait to stay there again.  Hopefully sooner than later!  Please let me know if you have any questions about our stay.  Make sure to check out our other Disneyland posts here, here and here!  Thank you as always for reading!
