[QUOTE=Cielei;1073204]I haven’t exactly decided much of anything yet! After hearing that Carsland is expected to open in 2012, I’m thinking we should wait until after it opens. Hmm … decisions decisions
I love the idea of staying at the GC, and I have had some spa treatments there that were heavenly. It’s more a matter of how extravagant I want to be when I plan or if the inner scrooge takes over.[/QUOTE]
CONVENIENCE is the key word here. Disney allows you to stroll through the hotel, oohing and ahing, and sitting in front of the fireplace or listening to the piano, as well as accepting your dollars at their restaurants.
I have yet to stay at the Grand Californian. IT DOES HAVE IT’S OWN ACCESS to California Adventure, so on cold nights when you do Grizzly Rapids, you can run back to the hotel and get warm sooner. =)
If finances are a key between eating and hotel, I would pass, just because a room is a room in the end. Though the GC does have nice specials every now and then. :pirate:
