[QUOTE=jk8;1095804]I am very excited to share that we are headed to the Land for spring break!
I am wait listed for a studio at Villias at Grand Cali. I could do a points exchanged and stay at Paradise Pier for more points. If my wait list does not come through I am not sure if I should go for PP or just stay at something like the Candy Cane Inn. Any thoughts? Thanks!![/QUOTE]
Paradise Pier is, um, nice. Back in law school, when I frequented Disneyland with Linda, I used the military discount (this was before priceline) to stay at one of the two Travel Lodges (you know, with the sleepwalking bear) at the southwest corner of the park. It was great location wise, we could walk into the parking lot and be at Disneyland in a short time. What I didn’t realize is that Disney owned all that property, and tore down both the lodges and the Godfather’s pizza between them. What they DID leave on that property was the multi-storied Hotel, formerly known as the Pan Pacific. This was a nice hotel. But it’s not the same as the Disneyland or the Grand Californian. For the amount of fundage involved, I would hold out for the villa, or exercise a Priceline application for another Anaheim hotel. :pirate:
