Disney world vet here planning our families first Disneyland trip. We are planning to be in California for one week at the end of August. Planning to split the trip between Disneyland and a stay at a beach resort. Looking for hotel recommendations for the beach part. Looking for something within an hour drive from Disney. Must be family friendly - we have a 6 and 8 year old. Looking for something on the beach/beach access, with kid friendly pools (slides are a big plus) and decent sized rooms. Also would like activities and restaurants in walking distance. Finally if it happens to be in the Marriott family of hotels, that is a plus as we have points we could use - but willing to look at any family friendly beach resort. Thanks in advance for any recommendations!!
