Recreation and Sports
Recreation and Sports
Ready to work off all that delicious vacation food? Here's the skinny on recreation and sports at the Disneyland Resort and Southern California.
Fitness Centers: Each of the three Disney hotels (Grand Californian, Disneyland Hotel, and Disney's Paradise Pier) has a fitness center. Guests staying at these hotels have access to these fitness centers; non-guests do not. Details on each are listed on page 40 (Disneyland Hotel), page 45 (Grand Californian), and page 50 (Paradise Pier). Many other hotels have fitness centers—check with your hotel for availability, hours, and pricing. And if you are a member of a national fitness chain, check to see if they have branches in the area.
Tennis: Alas, no tennis courts exist at any of the three Disney hotels. Check with your hotel to see if it has one. The City of Anaheim has some 70 public tennis courts—see the full list on-line at http://www.tennisround.com/tennis-courts/ca/anaheim.
Swimming: Beyond the swimming pools at hotels (almost every hotel and motel has one, and they are almost always exclusively for hotel guests), there are several water parks (see Knott’s Soak City Waterpark, page 166, and Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, page 170) and beaches (see More Southern California Attractions, beginning on page 195).
Jogging: The Disneyland Resort is a fun place to jog—jogging paths are available through the hotels' grounds and you can venture into Downtown Disney in the early mornings when crowds are light. Several other hotels have jogging trails, too, but distance runners may be disappointed at the lack of longer trails anywhere close. The well-shaded sidewalks around and near the Disneyland Resort are wide and well-lit, making for easy jogging, too. If you're serious about running, check out the runDisney races at http://www.rundisney.com/.
Golf: Again, no Disney golf at Disneyland, but you'll find plenty of other golf courses in the area. Nearest is probably Coyote Hills Golf Course (714-528-1103)—its championship course is just 7 miles from Disneyland. Black Gold Golf Club (714-961-0060) has great views and is 10 miles away. Tustin Ranch Golf Course (714-730-1611) has a four-star-rated course just 12 miles away. And Anaheim Hills Golf Course (714-998-3041) is 13 miles from Disneyland, but is the most affordable of those mentioned here. Find a complete list on-line at http://www.golflink.com/golf-courses/—search for Anaheim.
Spa Treatments: Mandara Spa at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel is a full-service spa with treatment rooms, a couples' suite, steam and sauna rooms, and a "nail pavilion." For a look at Mandara's approach, see http://www.mandaraspa.com/. Other nearby day spas in Anaheim and Orange County include Burke Williams Day Spa (714-769-1360, http://www.burkewilliamsspa.com/) and Glen Ivy Hot Springs Spa (888-GLENIVY, http://www.glenivy.com/glen-ivy-hot-springs/).
Sporting events: See Anaheim Area Attractions on page 195 for stadiums and venues.
