it's a great deal and i'm so happy for you...

i was so, so, so tempted to book for our dates this year.. i could have got the 2 of us there and back on qantas for $1700 total but our vaustralia tickets are non-refundable. gah!!!

when we stay at disneyland, we stay at the desert inn & suites, which is directly across from the entrance on south harbor blvd. it's clean and nice and has free wifi, but it's no contempo resort at BLT.

the park vue inn (also directly across from the entrance on south harbor blvd) is also really nice, i've heard lots of good things about it.

if you're looking for the best accomodation in the area though, you'd need to look onsite at either the Grand Californian or the Disneyland Hotel, although the Grand Californian is definitely the closest onsite accomodation (might be slightly closer than some of the places on south harbor blvd).

whichever way you go, i'm sure you'll have the most amazing time

That's an awesome deal! The best we've ever has to lax was $880 ! What fun to have another trip to plan

I agree with travelmum, Im dreaming of the dAy that we don't have to travel over school holidays, it makes such a difference with the deals .

Will enjoy reading about your plans, I'd love to see all the changes in DCA since we last went.

Awesome deal! Well done. It's been many a year since I visited DL, so I'm not much help in the accommodation planning. Have fun though

Maybe a smidge I was in Kindy that year and I've changed a bit since then too.

The essentials will be the same - and the magic, which is the main thing.

Great deal

And going in February

Last year we stayed at the Fairfield Inn. Nothing fantastic but it was fine for the limited time we were in the room. Cool view of the park and an easy walk to the park. It is right next door to McDonalds.
