The monorail goes right through the Grand Californian courtyard area. It does not stop at the resort, however.

One of the Grand Californian Pools. This is the pool where most of the kids tend to hang out, since the slides are here!

GCpool2.jpg (83465 bytes)

Another shot of the pool area, this is the second of the pools. No slides in this pool area, more adults tend to be at this one. The other pool is just beyond it, towards the back of this photo. That's where the slides and kids are! There are 2 hot tubs, and a toddler pool, too!
