I would love love some much needed advice and opinions with this decision from the experts. Let me first tell you a bit about my family & our trip. This will be our first Disneyland trip. We are a family of 5, our kids ages when we go will be DS9, DS6 & DD2. Our DD2 will be sleeping in a playpen so the rooms need to have enough room for this. We are going to Disneyland August 2-7th. We will be taking a break in the day to nap/swim so this should be a consideration with location. I would really like to avoid the ART bus if possible. So here are my choices that I have narrowed down, I will put prices and any special notes with them.
As you can see that the hotels are close in price. I would love some advice. I know we are not eligible for the Entertainment rate at Hojo's because it is in August. I have even considered Priceline but I am worried to do that since we are a family of 5 so I don't know if the rooms can handle all 5, we also would not know where we would stay until after we paid for it. And we would probably be farther so we would have to take the shuttles which would be harder for nap time with our daughter (having to get to the farther hotels).Thanks for your help.
- Hojo's-$130.90/night (with 15% disc.) -building 1 premium room, Disney view, great pool for kids, short walk. Con's: I am concerned about the freeway noise with sleeping here, someone mentioned that with the AC in summer you won't hear the freeway.
- Sheraton Anaheim-$149.00/night-Largest standard rooms, this package comes with breakfast, FREE shuttle. Con's: $10.00/day to park there which brings up our daily total (I assume before taxes) to $159.00/day.
- Anabella-$139.00/night (last night $179.00)-L shaped room. Con's: a bit of a walk, daily parking fee.
- Candy Cane Inn- $144.00/night- free breakfast, free shuttle. Con's: Smaller room size.
