We are still trying to figure out exactly what to do for April break, and one of our choices is Disneyland.
We are trying to find the lowest cost trip. (Other choice would be WDW (we have WDW annual passes that are still valid, but no more DVC points, so we would have to pay out of pocket for our room). (another choice would be a cruise out of NY city - so that we wouldn’t have to pay the VERY high airfares).
The most probable option is just staying home and cleaning out the attic (because all of these trips are just way to expensive, and I’m not sure the expense would be warranted if the crowd levels are going to be very high).
Anyway, I’m doing lots of number crunching and I’m trying to find the best good neighbor hotel option if we go to Disneyland. (I’ve priced the Disney properties, and it’s over $4300 for the 10 nights - NOT IN THE BUDGET…).
Have you ever stayed at Red Lion or Cany Cane Inn? I found pretty good deals at both of these places, and I read very good and very bad reviews for both. I think the Howard Johnson looks pretty good too (the pool play area looks awesome, but it is SOLD OUT).
For us, this is what is most important, in the order of importance:
- Cleanliness (No bed bugs please!!!)
- Pool area (it would be nice to have a great pool for DS6)
- Distance to Disneyland
Please let me know your experience, and if you have any other recommendations, I would love to hear it.
