No tourist trip to so-Cal is complete without hitting Disneyland at least once. Or in the case with my friends, twice. So we decided to splurge and book a room at the Disneyland hotel. That way we could take on a full day of Disneyland, drag ourselves back to the room, and awaken ourselves to the character breakfast and enjoy another full day of Disney and perhaps California Adventure.
Being so close to Disneyland, California Adventure, and Downtown Disney is the hotel's greatest advantage. The place is clean and the service is friendly. We didn't notice the spa.
The character breakfast buffet is perfect for kids and the kids in all of us. My main complaint is how bloody expensive it was, but it's a rare trip so why not?
