Great Wolf Resorts has signed a deal for development of a new resort near Disneyland.

The 600-suite resort with indoor water park will be developed in the International West Resort in Garden Grove, Calif., less than two miles from Disneyland.

"With a sizable population within a three-hour drive along with the close proximity to Disneyland, we have an attractive location for Great Wolf’s first California resort," said Kim Schaefer, CEO of Great Wolf Resorts.

The resort is being developed by McWhinney and will be managed by Great Wolf.

Development is expected to begin in 2011.
