I am unexpectedly going to be in the area for work next week and I think I can go a day early to visit Disneyland. I've been to DW 3 times, but never DL and am excited to get there, but I gather things are set up a bit differently so I have a few questions. 1. How regular is the transportation to the airport? I suspect I'll have to get back to the airport to transfer to my work hotel but would like to stay at the park until closing. Can I still get to the airport then? 2. Is the dining plan worth it? I'll probably have one sit down meal a day, but don't necessarily need character ones (unless it's really a restaurant I shouldn't miss). I usually get the dining plan at WDW but I stay there longer and I haven't had time to research how the DL one works. I don't eat huge quantities of food but am okay with buffets if the atmosphere makes it worth the cost. 3. Debating staying Paradise Pier or across the street at the Fairfield Inn. Onsite is more expensive, but I can cover that cost if it's really worthwhile. But if the experience isn't that much different, I'd just assume save money and spend it on food or something.
