Looking for a place to stay near Disneyland? A new Hyatt House has opened at the corner of Harbor and Katella, within easy walking distance of the parks. The 262-room hotel is designed for extended stays and offers a mix of studios and one-bedroom suites with kitchens. Rates start at around $300 a night. Even if you're not in the market for that kind of room, it might be worth noting that the new building also features a Starbucks, a Walgreens, and a couple of restaurants.
Dollywood announced that it is adding a few extra days to its operating schedule this year, extending the Smoky Mountain Christmas by adding two Tuesdays to the run: Dec. 6 and 13. In addition, Splash Country will stay open an extra week — operating daily until Aug. 21 then for the next two weekends after that.
