One thing they take very seriously at The Grand Californian is pool security. The relative ease of using resort pools at WDW makes this look like a maximum security prison. All the added paranoia is with good reason though...as there are SO MANY people passing through this resort who are NOT staying there. (this was a huge downfall in my book...) Also, why on earth does the pool close at 10:00??!!! I'm on vacation, and the parks are closed by 9:00. Just put that in your pocket and think about it for a minute.
Anyway, I'm ranting. Here are some pictures from the aforementioned wonderful prison.
