A couple of the no thrills motels that we have stayed at are the Tropicana and also the Carousel. They are located directly across the street from Disneyland on the Bus Terminal side, the opposite side of Downtown Disney. They are definately in walking distance and in the morning it is quite the stroller parade from all these motels to the Park. We have found them to be relatively inexpensive and clean. Both have website if you want to learn more about them.

Hope that helps.

It's a great day to be alive,
Carol

My husband and I will be going. We have an annual pass to WDW but have not been to Disneyland. Seems like this is a great introduction. I did the backstage tour with Pete and Walter in June 2010 and I recognize some of the names. We are about 6 hours from LA so we may drive. Does anyone know how this tour would work with a car? Also thinking about adding a few days on both sides. In June 2010 I stayed at the Howard Johnson's across the street. It was no frills, walking distance, and acceptable.

When driving, you can park your car at the Grand Californian at no charge.

ABD will provide transfers from the hotel at 1:00pm on the day your Adventure begins.

If you have other questions, you caN reach me at Kevin@DreamsUnlimitedTravel.com

The ABD FAQ web page states that you may park your car at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and that they will take you by bus to the start of the tour in Hollywood.

I hope this helps.

4) If I am already in Southern California, can I drive my own vehicle and meet the group on Day 1 of the trip?

For those driving a vehicle on Day 1 of your trip, you may self-park at the Grand Californian Hotel as we offer one coach transfer from the Grand Californian Hotel to the Renaissance Hotel. Your vehicle will then be available for pick-up at the Grand Californian Hotel at the end of your vacation. A guest may also pick up a transfer from LAX by meeting at Terminal 7, United Airlines at Noon by the Baggage Claim Information Desk and this can be arranged through your Concierge Agent as well.

Welcome to the group!

My wife and I had our first visit to Disneyland this past April with the first DIS Backstage Adventure, and it was a great way to see Disneyland for the first time.

On this trip we already have added days to both ends of our trip, to correct the mistake we made last time, when we left for home the day the adventure was completed.
