[QUOTE=WishUponAStar;976066]Absolutely go!!! If I’ve gotten the right impression from you on MB I REALLY think you will love & appreciate Disneyland.
I know you said you wanted to do the DDP but they don’t have the Dining Plan like WDW does. They have this strange voucher system & to be honest it doesn’t look very worth it. You may want to go read about it. We usually opt to have a small breakfast in our room, a cheaper counter service lunch, & then pay cash for a nice dinner. The restaurants there are EXCELLENT quality & I’ve always said that Disneyland food is so much better than WDW. More variety, foods seem fresher to me, & it’s just delicious.
Otherwise, it’s awesome to go for 7 nights but, trust me, it’s not necessary. If you are able to swing that cost for everything for that many nights than great but you could TOTALLY go for 4 nights & feel completely satisfied. The layout is so small & unlike WDW, you can walk from Autotopia in DL Park all the way to the farthest building at the Disneyland hotel in about 20 minutes. No Disney transportation needed, the monorail is just an awesome bonus. We’ve only gone to Disneyland during REALLY busy times & 4 days was MORE than enough for us. If it were me staying in Souther California for 7 nights I’d be at Disneyland for 4 & checking out other close by sights for 3 days.
Oh, you asked about good restaurants. My favorites are Blue Bayou (atmosphere) & Ariel’s Grotto (I think that’s just a girly must do :laugh:), Steakhouse 55, Storyteller’s Cafe, & Goofy’s Kitchen is A BLAST!!![/QUOTE]
Thank you sooo much for all your help and information! I think I would really appreciate it too
And yeah, I read a little bit on the dining plan and still don’t quite understand it, and need to do more research on it, but I think we are going to do it just because it’s going to be easier than having so much cash on us or just keeping track of what we are spending! You know what children can be like… lol.
As for the length of the trip, we just realllly wanna be able to take everything in. Enjoy everything. Try and see everything. Cause who knows if we’ll ever go back! lol. But I understand it is a lot smaller and easily done in 3-4 days. But who knows!
Another thing is we really want to atleast put our feet in the Pacific Ocean. Neither of us have ever been to the West Coast. So we might do a beach day. But if not, my aunt lives in Huntington Beach. So!
And yes! The foooood. Blue Bayou sounds like a must from what I’ve read, simply because I love the way the atmosphere sounds, the food is just the cherry! I also wanted to try Ariels and Steakhouse 55, so I’m glad to hear good things!
How similiar is Goofys Kitchen and Chef Mickey, food and atmosphere wise Sorry for all the questions!
