We stayed here http://www.stayyosemiteviewlodge.com/ the last time we went and loved it! It is really close to the entrance in El Portal and did not take very long to get to the valley. We will definately be staying there again when we don't camp. It had a number of pools both outdoors and indoors, and it is on the river.

Lots of people planning Yosemite trips! So exciting.

We are planning for June 2013.

Right now my plan is two nights on the Monterey Peninsula, followed by four nights in Yosemite. We are booked at the Wawona Hotel, in a room with a private bath, for four nights. Checking in Monday, June 17 and checking out Friday, June 21.

Of course, the more time passes, the more I want to add DLR into the mix. Dh would have no interest, so if we did, it would just be dd and me... tacking DLR onto the end of the trip. We'd just fly down to Orange County on the same day dh would fly back home to Pennsylvania.

I don't know though. Even adding 3-4 nights in Anaheim adds like $1000+ to the trip.

This was our first time so when signs point out some waterfall, all we could see was a blackish mark along the stone where obviously water fell at some time. Not a big deal and we expected it but if I could plan a do over trip I would choose spring.
