BTW, thanks as always Michelle! This really does sound like a fantastic deal as compared to the many pkgs. offered at WDW! We have been to DL before, but have never been to the Grand Californian. My questions are these: Would anyone suggest an off-site versus an on-site? Also what would be someone's preference as to what DL resort hotel?Please keep in mind that we have stayed at the DL hotel and also the new Paradise Pier Hotel which was the DLP. Is the new GC Hotel that nice? What are the pros and the cons of this hotel, if any Our last stay they were building the new California Adventure. After reading so many negative posts on various boards, is this new park worth a look at? Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks folks, Chip&Janet.
