We leave in the southeast and have have been to Disney World several times. We are now considering a Disneyland / Southern California vacation in the next couple of years. I was starting to try to do some research and I've got a few questions. 1) What the advantages were of staying at one of the three Disney hotels, as opposed to staying at one of the Good Neighbor hotels? 2) How many days would we need to be able to do most (if not all) things at Disneyland/California Adventure? (we would probably be going in the October time frame. 3) What other things are there to fill up our vacation? We would probably take a couple of days and go down to San Diego to see the Zoo and Sea World. Six Flags Magic Mountain is also a possibility. Is Universal Studios different enough from the Florida Park(s) to make it worth our while? Thanks.
