    It depends on what wing of the hotel your monorail view room is in. If you are the 51xx or 50xx rooms then your best bet will still be the regular exit. But if your room number is 54xx or 53xx then look for the fire exit between 5447 and 5449 that empties out right near labrea bakery. It is only one way so getting to DL is easy but you still gotta trek back to the room via the main entrances!

    Yeah sorry to hijack the thread, but I've been watching KTLA since Barbara and Carlos! I miss Mark, evidently this was a serious case of pneumonia, he is back home (as they reported today), he was supposed to be back in Jan, but obviously that changed. I can relate because my spouse had a serious bout of pneumonia in 2008, it can be really bad!

    For those of you who aren't local we're talking about local weather people, one of our local weathercasters (for almost 20 years on a morning news program) has been out for many months with a serious illness and while he is an opinionated bas****, we all still love him, plastic surgery and all! :rotfl2: :lmao:

    Perfect! Thank you for the info. I figured there had to be some way to get out of here that got me closer to the park. Even one way is better than no way.

    Thanks for the repost:thumbsup2. I had noticed the email address on my confirmation and had not thought much of it until now. While our needs are pretty simple, we were able to get them to make 3 dinner reservations for us so I'm happy. Saved me having to call and be on hold.:)

    Only 2 weeks to go:banana:

    I am starting a collection of room views on the thread. If you have a room view you would like to share, please post up a pic along with the room number, the date, and the type of view under which the room is classified. My goal is to have a collection of room views so people can see if they like the view in that part of the hotel. This is difficult to do with just satellite and areal photographs. I will be re-posting this post later on so people who skipped over it will have a chance to see it.

    Starting off, this is our room view from March 2010. Room 5220, classified as a theme park view.

    Any chance you could list what type of a room view that is? We haven't stayed at the GC before but have booked a DTD view for our first trip. Which rooms would have such a view?

    Good point. Ill edit the above post to include view type. The room was booked as a theme park view.

    The rooms that have a DTD view are on the North Side of the hotel and have the odd-numbered rooms from X135-X167 (West Wing) and X419-X449 (East Wing)
