A couple times throughout each year, I make the 7 hour drive from home to Disneyland. Generally it’s to an inexpensive hotel within walking distance to the parks. So that means a little dicey for the girls and they are overpriced for a Motel and gross crowded continental breakfast. Not this trip.
This trip is to the Disney resort hotel Grand Californian. My husband made the trip over the top extravagant by upgrading our room to the Club Level. This means personalized consierge services, food, drinks and snacks all day (6:30 am to 10:00pm) Beer and wine starting in the afternoon, milk, cookies and desserts at night, DVDs available to borrow (players in each room) and so much more. Yes it’s about $150 more per night on top of the already high priced rooms but if you’re going to do it, go big!
As an added bonus, resort guests are given 1 hour early park entry each day of their stay. You’ll be amazed at how much you can do in the first 3 hours. You’ll be ready to go back, get some snacks and relax while the crowds grow.
I’m off to California Adventure this morning. Cars land is calling my name.
