  • Tips, Tricks and a whole lotta Sunscreen

    So, all of you rad, rad Senor Disneys and Disneyetts, I need some advice please!

    I am going to Disneyland from July 9th to the 12th ....(side note! One month from today!!!!!) and we still need to book a room. It'll be the four of us - Mom, Dad, Sissy and Me. We want to stay somewhere close as my dad has bad knees and I've only got one (:0). Does anyone have any recommendations as to where we should stay? I've stayed at the Park Inn Internation (next to Mickey D's).

    Also, wanna lather on the tips and tricks for our trip enjoyment? We're driving, so we'll have a car... has anyone been to midival times? I've never been but heard it was rad.

    Any must do's while we're there? I'm gunna go on pirates!! *jumps up and down!!* And Peter Pan first thing right? Is the BB really worth the money?

    One downer about the pirates though... it won't have that musty pirate smell anymore, right? I LOVE that smell.

    Thanks guys!!

    We normally stay at the Ramada Inn Maingate. It's just down the block 5 minutes from Disneyland. It's great to stay at if you're strapped on money. Free continental breakfast too.

      Well, I can give you a list of places I've stayed within walking distance (including the one you already mentioned, it's now called the Camelot Inn) but I think the problem is that you are trying to book it now, so I'm not sure what is still available.

      Desert Inn
      Ramada Maingate (already mentioned)
      Tropicana
      Best Wester Park Place Inn
      Carousel Inn
      Fairfield Inn (marriott)
      Howard Johnson. (a little longer walk, not too much)

      I wish you luck in finding a place to stay If worse comes to worse, get a hotel and take the shuttle, it's not as convenient but it still takes you to the happiest place on earth.
      Have fun!

        I love the Candy Cane - great breakfast on the same block as D-land - and it's own shuttle.

          My vote is also the Candy Cane. I have stayed in the Holiday Inn across the street, the Portofino & a few others, but always find myself coming back to the Candy Cane (which is now where I ALWAYS stay). The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast is fine (bagels, cereal, fruit, muffins) and it is within walking distance. The private Candy Cane Inn shuttle is pretty nice to after a long day in the parks...Have a great time!

            I agree that the Candy Cane Inn is a great place to stay, the shuttle is a godsend. It looks like they are fairly well booked during your dates, though.

            The Best Western Park Place Inn and Mini Suites is VERY close, no shuttle needed. It's just across the street from the pedestrian entrance to the DLR. They do have availability during your dates.

            Here are a couple of map sites to give you an idea of where the hotels are located.

            My advice is BOOK NOW! Hotels in close proximity to the park fill up quickly for July.

            I hope you have a great time!

                Aww... That sucks!

                I hope your DL trip ROCKS Ariel's socks (if she had feet).

                Are you planning on doing any of the "adventure Dinners" like Midevil Times or the Pirate's adventure? They aren't at the park though.. about six miles away (according to the website). If I see and rad Ariel souvineers (sp?) I'll have to message you and point you in the right direction!!

                  We've stayed at the Carousel Inn & the Howard Johnson. Both were great, clean, & a quick walk to the park entrance. (of course HoJo is a little farther of a walk). You can't beat the Carousel Inn for being right across the street from the entrance. And the price is pretty reasonable (plus a free continental breakfast). Don't wait too much longer to book your room!
                  :yea: Its Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
