Even though the Anabella is technically across the street, it is on the back side of California Adventure and is quite a long walk. Look into Howard Johnson's on Harbor and Park Vue Inn, both across the street from Disneyland. Also, Candy Cane Inn is next to California Adventure and is a quick walk.

I've got so much to learn!
You would make the arrangements directly through DCL.

Thank you Corinna and Susie for the info.

I've been searching for a site that would have a map of the DL Resort area including hotels. Does anyone have any idea where I might find this? Thanks again for all of your help and suggestions!

Try this:

This is actually from the Disneyland website.

Thanks again! That was just what I was looking for. I must have missed it my first go round.

The website is not the most user-friendly website I have come across. I actually had to Google this.

If you have a AAA office near you stop in and pick up their D'land Resort book. I used it as a guide to book a good neighbor hotel the last 2 times we've gone out there. I didn't book the hotel thru AAA, just used the book for locations. Now for the life of me I can't remember the name of the one we stayed it, but we loved to location - right across the street and next to an iHop. The hotel was actually closer to the parks and DTD than if we had stayed at Paradise Pier.

I can pick up the booklet, that includes all the area hotels, at DLR later this week and send it to you. Send me a PM with your address. We are leaving for the Fantasy at the end of the week, so it might go out after I get back.

This sounds like the Red Lion Hotel, which used to be a Radisson.

I've taken a little detour and have started reading your trip reports. I'm enjoying them very much.

I really have to work on the next installment of the Hawaii one. Life is crazy at the moment so I don't have much time to spend on the trip report. Still, the next vacation is not until November so I have plenty of time.

That's definatley not the name. When I go back to Delaware next week I'll see if I still have my AAA book and look it up there.

You are welcome. I still like have a piece of paper to reference and not scroll thru the internet when doing this type of research. Plus the book lists the amenities of the hotels in a single spot without having have to flip from screen to screen and search for them.
