I would post a trip report but I need to get ready for a small business trip so here are a few tidbits: MikeD (trip planner, Diana (wife), Alexa (8), Kara (5), and Matthew (2 1/2). We flew out of Columbus, Ohio on United and flew to LAX. We stayed at the Hyatt Alicante (total hotel bill was $23 - I had free nights for 6 nights and hotel didn't charge for 7th night). Our room was in the older part of the hotel but it was large and hotel provided day bed for Matt. This hotel, like other Hyatts I stay at, was very quiet and service was good. I bought 6 day hoppers for a total of $685 (included hoppers, $40 ESPN Zone play card, and a character breakfast of our choice). I don't know if it was intended but Disney Travel sent 7 day hoppers so we spent a day on Disney! We intended to go to San Diego Zoo, Legoland, and a Water Park but we love Disney parks so much we didn't mind not seeing those places. We ate at 2 character meals - Goofy's Kitchen and ChipnDale breakfast. We also had two excellent meals in New Orleans Square. Parks were very crowded by midday but we were always there early and took a break back at hotel then returned in the evening. We thought DCA was a wonderful park! Soarin over California was excellnet as was the coaster and the Maliboomer. I any has any questions just ask. It was a great trip!
