‘Tis the season to book your summer trips, so Team Mousetalgia takes our annual look at Disneyland Resort hotels and a variety of area lodging options, and we offer tips and advice to make your trip a success. First, we present the advantages as well as the disadvantages of each of the Disneyland resort hotels (Paradise Pier, The Disneyland Hotel, and the Grand Californian) and discuss amenities, food, family activities, convenience, and more. Then, we mention our top alternate hotels, and also look at the most convenient hotels to the park. We also take a quick look at what to think about before staying in a bargain hotel. Next, Jeff reports on a special sneak preview of the upcoming book with the working title “Marc Davis Goes to WED,” which will carefully detail the incredible design work Davis did for Imagineering after he left Walt Disney Animation. Written by authors Chris Merritt and Pete Docter, the book is a definite must-have for Disney fans. Plus – a haunting comic book signing; our favorite Disneyland must-dos -and more.
