  • [Idea] I have a great idea....

    Hotels "near" Disneyland shouldn't be allowed to put "Main Gate" in their title if they aren't in walking distance of the main [expletive! deleted] gate!!!

        This just in. Tim Babb has been declared enemy number one by the city of Garden Grove.
        The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

            All the hotels that claim this tell you in one of those five pages of fine print that they actually are not near the park. /sarcasm/

              I hate how hotels also severely underestimate how far it is to the park. For instance, some say that Disneyland is 1.5 blocks from the hotel, but fail to mention the fact that they consider a block to be 2 miles.

                Wow, I can't believe they'd even use the term "block". It's kind of like a slang term, and everyone's definition of it differs. Some consider a block a few miles, others less than one.

                  So many...

                  but for example. I was looking up hotels across the street from Disneyland on Google. It listed one called "Ramada Main Gate North." As I got several steps into the reservation process, it turned out that it was a mile north of Disneyland and it was a completely different Ramada (With completely different nightly rates) across the street.

                    Ramada must be the worst at this, since they have a "Ramada Conference Center Qualcomm Stadium" which is actually nowhere near Qualcomm Stadium and not accessible by any public transit. It's a drive of several miles. Ironically Ramada does have a smaller hotel within walking distance of Qualcomm Stadium but they don't call it that. And I feel sorry for all the people who have been fooled by hotels claiming to be "in La Jolla" when they're not.

                        I only asked because we have stayed at the Motel 6 Maingate, which is a mile away, but I would consider a mile to be walking distance.

                            A mile is walking distance unless you plan to go back and forth a lot.

                            I could walk there in the morning and back at night, but if your group needs to make multiple trips to and from the hotel a day a mile is waaaaaay to flippin' far.

                              Agreed. These hotels are very misleading. After removing "Main Gate", they should be forced to replace the words with "Kinda Close... To Shuttles and Cabs".
