[QUOTE=NJMommy;1097595]So, we’re thining of doing a trip to California for this summer 2012. It will probably be Disneyland for 2 days, and then visiting Hollywood and Venice Beach. [/QUOTE]
I would agree with Andrea. I mean, Hollywood is nice and all, but three days at Disneyland would give you all the time you need to do both parks and not feel “rushed” in the process. This coming from someone who did ten days at Disneyland. :wub:
So, I am looking for advice. First of all, where should we stay near Disneyland…we were thinking of maybe a hotel that has rooms with 2 or 3 bedrooms or something like that. We will have a rental car, so we don’t need to be within walking distance of the park.
Obviously, any advice anyone could give would be great!!!
I am a big fan of Priceline.com and you can get two rooms for half of what Disney charges for being on property. The nice thing about having a rental car is that you can get the three / three and a half star hotels fifteen minutes away that DON’T charge for parking. The hotels on my page indicate where I’ve stayed while at Disneyland. I’ve been in Fullerton and Buena Vista. As long as you don’t try to travel during rush hour, most trips are fifteen minutes between hotel and park. I’ve never paid more than $50.00 a night for any of the hotels I’ve stayed at. The Hyatt in Garden Grove is the best, of course, followed by the Marriott in Fullerton.
The nice thing about Priceline is that it’s almost like eBay. You can choose the price of your hotel room. Or try to. Sometimes there are no rooms available at the price you offer. But if you start early enough, you can clean up your hotel rates at a fraction of what it would normally cost. Last trip off island I was got a hotel room in Salt Lake City at 25% of the normal hotel rate. :pirate:
