There is no average,, which one are you staying at. Kinda like saying how long does it take to get from Dallas to the DFW airport.

Not staying at any that's why I didn't specify. Trying to decide meals out of the parks and just wondered

Btw from which part of Dallas? I thought starring DL park was pretty specific starting location to the 3 hotels. Guess I was wrong...

I know it's disneyland but I thought the original was called Disneyland park and the other Disney's California adventure? what is the specific name of the park? Aren't they both directly across from each other? Wouldn't they be approx. the same to the hotels just wanting an estimate 15 min, 30 ???

There's also an entrance to DCA through the Grand Californian Hotel.

But it's only for the Guests who are staying on-site.

Here's a wikimap that shows the GCH Guest Entrance:

Peace, y'all.

I just thought your question was vague, the 3 hotels are different distances and can be see on the dis-maps. Time it takes to walk is a different matter.

On the same note...thinking about having lunch at Goofy's, so Disneyland Hotel. Would it make sense to catch the monrail from Tomorrowland and head to Downtown Disney. Kids will want to ride the monorail anyway, but would this save walking time also??
Thanks!

Yeah if you're in Disneyland this would save some walking time. Taking the monorail would put you pretty much at the end of DTD right by Disneyland Hotel.

This would be a great way to save your feet and get close to DLH. The monorail drops off in DTD right by the DLH. Get off and take a right. Make sure to get your handstamp when leaving the DTD station if you plan to return to the parks.
