First time poster, long time lurker. I am interested in getting opinions on which is the better path to take with hotels. We are heading up to Disneyland from San Diego in march to celebrate our daughters 5th birthday, a wednesday to thursday trip. I have already booked a theme room at the fairfield inn for 119 a night. I am considering the disney properties because of Magic mornings on thursday. The Pier property at 175 isnt a substantial difference but im trying to decide if that extra 55 is worth the extra hour in the park in the morning.
I assume parking is a wash because both places charge. So my questions to all of you are:
Is the extra 55 dollars worth it just to have an extra hour in the parks?
Will paradise pier do anything on top of the norm since its her bday?
Is paradise pier about the same walking distance to the entry as the fairfied?
Which hotel is nicer?
The other two properties are 270 and 290 a night which is a lot more but wondering if the grand is worth the splurge.
Appreciate your input!
