We are DVC members and used our points to book our stay. I booked 7 months in advance to guarantee getting a room. There is just the 2 of us and so we had a studio for our 4 night stay.
We arrived about 9 am as we had stayed at another hotel locally. We knew that we wouldn't be able to get a room so early and so we dropped our bags off and checked in to save time later. As DVC members self parking is free so we chose to do this - the parking lot is across the street but we weren't planning on using the car for a few days anyway.
We asked at check-in if there were any theme park views available (DVC bookings are by room type only) and the cast member said they would take a look. They said they would text us when our room was ready...but we have a UK cell phone and find that this doesn't always work.
We checked back just after 4 and our room was ready....we got a great view :) We could watch World of Color from our balcony!
No issues with the room at all. It was clean, tidy and the furniture was in good condition.
We had a great stay and the only minor issue we experienced was that the wireless internet connection was not great. We could not maintain a connection for any length of time...and only in certain areas of the room.
If we return to Disneyland we will definitely stay here again :)
