I just committed the family to a trip by getting the airline tickets... Now comes the difficult part.
How many days and where to stay for Disneyland.
I'm hoping for some suggestions, we are avid Disneyworld visitor but not that familiar with Disneyland (my only experience was as a kid back in the 70's so I assume it has changed quite a bit)... we were thinking maybe 4 days in Disneyland/California adventure would be enough, does that sound right?
We are trying to keep an 8 year old and 5 year old happy so any suggestion on character dining would also be nice (assuming Disneyland has any)... and if there is anyone with experience in the Halloween party, is it worth it?
We noticed a package deal staying at a Disneyland hotel would be around 175$ a night, is that something that is worth it or would we be just as well off staying somewhere offsite, we will have a rental car so we aren't going to be tethered down.
Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
