Ok. I nearly fell over when I checked out the price of a two night stay at DLR (Pardise Pier) on the disneyparks site-- $1300 (4-Dh, myself and dd's 8 & 9 )-- wow I sure could get a lot more out days at WDW for that price. Even one of Good Neighbour hotels was $900 for two days which just seems crazy to me. Here's the thing. We are going on a cruise to Hawaii in August (would have loved to do the West Coast DCL cruise but Hawaii was much cheaper )and have decided to break up an otherwise long flight by stopping in CA to visit my friend and her family for a few days and I thought we could also spend a couple days at DL so we can get our Disney fix for the year. We have one day tickets left over from WDW and I heard these can be used at DL (they are not park hoppers though can they be upgraded?). Though I have been to DL many more times than WDW I only did day trips not the whole resort thing. Since the rest of my family has never been to DL only WDW I was hoping to squeeze a tiny bit of Disney Magic into this vacation. My plan was to stay two nights at DLR or around there. With one night just doing a character dinner and relaxing by the pool and the next day exploring the parks. Is there an economical way to do this? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
