Hello - I've been lurking through these boards, mainly keeping up to date on the changes at DCA. I live in Oklahoma and typically our trips to the mouse are to Florida. However, this time I have a newphew graduating from USD in San Diego and myself, wife and kids 2, 6 and 8 are heading to California. Don't want to lose this opportunity to get to see Disneyland so we are working on plans to go to Disneyland on Tuesday and then fly back to Oklahoma from Anaheim on Friday. I haven't booked anything other than the flight to San Diego and a place to stay while there. Looking for advice on the following:
1) Transportation from San Diego to Disneyland..... I have heard train or should I rent a car or is there a better option out there?
2) Plan on staying at Paradise Pier Hotel.... should I go through a travel agent or do you get about the same thing using Disney direct? If agent any suggestions?
