Okay, so we are planning a visit to the DLR in July and I'm not sure I want to do Priceline this time around (DH isn't too fond of not knowing which hotel we're getting) and have a few options but wanted to get opinions on some of my choices.
It would be nice to be within walking distance but then again we really don't mind driving to the Mickey & Friends Parking Structure if we have to - we consider it nostalgic and part of our trip so we can ride the tram.
I'm debating on Carousel Inn, Candy Cane Inn or Crowne Plaza? They all are around the same price if we book with a DL vacation package.
The new rooms at the Carousel Inn look beautiful on their website and they are RIGHT across the street but wanted opinions since we have not stayed here for over 7 years.
My DH wants Candy Cane Inn because of a good experience (also over 7 years ago) but their rooms look a little corny online to me and we would have to take their shuttle.
Crowne Plaza is nice and we stayed there last October but we would definitely have to drive, but they do offer lots of dining vouchers when you book via Disney and they're right across the street from Target and Red Robin.
Also wanted to know if you think booking via Disney to get some of those extra perks is worth it or book seperately to save about $150. (Perks include Mickey's Toontown Madness, extra or free dining vouchers for the hotels, etc.)
Thanks in advance!
