I've purchased airfare, so now have to secure the hotel for Disney. Dates are Oct 27 - 31. I have a cancellable room reserved at the Hilton, but with taxes it is $300 a night. Ouch. No extras. Not happy with that price at all for a regular old room.
Right now expedia has a prepaid for $223, plus taxes, which takes it to about 267 a night -- that includes internet and breakfast. This still doesn't seem like a great deal to me, but at least it includes some extras and is one of the Celebrio rooms with the fridge.
So, my questions are: 1. will we have time to eat the breakfast? The park opens at 8am and we'd want to be at the gate prior to opening. Does anyone know if breakfast opens prior to 7am? Can we quickly grab food and eat and go? I don't want anything that is time consuming.
2. Since I'm still 3+ months out, should I keep waiting for a better pre-paid option? I really hate booking them because then you're locked in, but for a good rate I'll jump on it. The sheraton is already sold out for one of the nights, so I fear it may be a busy time and my options will dry up. I'll keep watching the Sheraton -- they did have a slightly better prepaid rate, before it was sold out.
3. park view or ocean view? I'm tempted by the ocean view, thinking it will be nice to see the bay and maybe see Mt. Fuji? Not that we'll spend more than a few minutes in our room -- it's really just for sleeping.
I'm pretty much set on staying "on property" and not moving further away, but really not wanting to spend to stay in the official disney hotels -- just too pricey.
Thanks for any advice! I'll be spending time in Tokyo before and after our Disney portion so I have a lot of planning to do.
