  • [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".

                                well maybe
                                if you put on some workout clothes
                                you could run back and forth
                                and get a great workout!

                                i would actually do this
                                actually i just might
                                my only problem is...
                                running shoes do not look good when not used for running
                                that's just my opinion

                                  Not for nothin'...but I don't go to Disneyland to get a great work out...especially if I'm plunking my hard earned money on the table...I want to maximize the time spent in the park I bout tickets for or in the hotel I paid for...not on the road in between which is free and I could do that anytime.

                                    well if you ran to the gate instead of walked
                                    you would get there faster
                                    and then spend like an extra 10 minutes at disneyland!

                                    seeeeee how it all works out

                                        usually at this time my boyfriend would just stick his tongue at me
                                        it's fun for me to find loopholes

                                        plus i use to be a track runner in high school
                                        and i just got out of high school
                                        so i still enjoy running
