We absolutely love the Disneyland Resort Hotels and stay in them whenever we can. But they can be expensive. For our 2003 trip we were trying to save a little money so we decided to try another hotel. It came highly recommended and we were not disappointed.
So in 2004 what will we do? We really want to stay at the Disney Grand Californian Hotel because of the Vacation Planning Services and the 50th anniversary.
But the Howard Johnson Anaheim hotel was nice enough we probably will spend a night or two there to cut costs.
In 2004 we also spent a few days in San Diego. As Alexander grows older we will likely continue to spend a day or two at beach hotels during our vacations to Disneyland. Since we believe that splitting a vacation between Disneyland and other Southern Californian destinations is common with a lot of families we will provide a review of all hotels we stay at.
