We made reservations for the GCH standard room because we are taking our 4 year old and want to be close to the parks and be able to return to the room early afternoon for naps/swimming and re-fuel for night time Disney. We want a hotel with nice grounds & pool so when not at the parks we can still be on Disney property. Early morning extra hour is a must.
I'm seriously considering changing our reservation to the Disneyland Hotel. I'm concerned about the 'dark' rooms, long hallways of the GCH. I really like the floor to ceiling windows and general brightness of the DLH. My only real concern here the walk to the parks and not being minutes from DCA to my room.
I'd love to get opinions on what should be a bigger concern.... darks rooms & endless hallways at the GCH or the longer walk from the DLH. Am I correct that you can walk from the DLH to GCH in 5-6 min ??
