Hi MW. Hope your all having an awesome day at work or @Disney. I need some expert advice. I want to plan a mini Disney vacation for the fam. Paradise pier hotel is within my budget and for those who have stayed there any tips? (pool, dining, amenities etc) and is one night or two nights enough to enjoy this hotel. I'd really appreciate any useful input. Thanks.

You will love it! And I say two nights! That way you can have the hotel all day when you go to the parks! - kritomiester  364.1 #575 6:55PM
Are you able to swing a suite? Colors of Wonders from way up there is pretty dang groooooooovy. - Butterlina  1512.8 #94 6:56PM
@butter, what is colors of wonders? i've never heard of it - DonaldMissingPants  302.1 #825 6:58PM
I'd really like to save for the GrandCali for the bells n whistles@Captain Sparrow, thanks. Thanks Kritomiester, I think 2sounds good too, @butterlina, is the suite the only room to see WoC? Thanks MW'ers. - 5Disney5  8.6 #10867 7:03PM
You need at least 2 days in order to enjoy the hotel. You can see many pics of the hotel & pool here: http://tinyurl.com/3kwfaug - Dahulagirl  1054.9 #153 7:03PM
Thanks Dahulagirl, I'm going to take a look. Are there any special activities for a 5yr old and a 2yr old? Those that know the in's & out's and are in the know... - 5Disney5  8.6 #10867 7:09PM
Yes. There are specific activities such as crafts and storytelling sessions for children at the hotel, and they even have their own pool in the pool area. Children of hotel guests may also participate in Pinocchio's Workshop at the Grand Californian. This is an evening program for kids aged 5-12, which includes arts and crafts, dinner, snacks and Disney movies. Parents should make a reservation with Guest Services: 714-635-2300. - Dahulagirl  1054.9 #153 7:30PM
Stayed there a couple times, it's nice. If you can get a room facing Dca it's a great view!!! Even better now that they have Woc. - thumpur  267.4 #1110 7:31PM
Wife took me and the kids there for Fathers Day last year and we had a great time. Our room faced DCA so we were able to relax and watch the WOC from there once the kids fell asleep. You also get dessert in your room at the end of a long day. You can also use your room key to get into DCA thru the Grand Californian special entrance. Overall it is definitely worth it! - afloreZ66  8.6 #10837 9:32PM
Sounds like it's worth it @afloreZ66.Thanks. Any idea which is a better month to book? July or Aug? - 5Disney5  8.6 #10867 11:19PM
How do all of you get the best rates for one of the 3 Disney hotels? Is there somewhere to find a better rate than Disneys web site? - donnievegas  1132.6 #138 11:30PM
I was comparing AP rates over regular 25%off & AP rates vary by day up to 280regular room/nite while it's 220regular/nite all across most of July n Aug for anyone. - 5Disney5  8.6 #10867 11:36PM
Thanks 5D5 I don't wanna sound cheap but when your driving from outa town and have 4 people to pay for it can get expensive, I really wanna suprise em with a Disney hotel over the 4th of July weekend though. - donnievegas  1132.6 #138 11:44PM

CROWD PREDICTIONSpring Break is winding down as Disney reduces hours this week. The MouseWait Historical Crowd Index shows mid-70s for this week which seems about right. Crowds will be lighter than last week with Friday and Sunday being the busiest days. - Admin Apr 14, 2015 12:04PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  372.9 #559 5:39PM

http://cchealth.org/eh/retail-food/dog-law-faq.php Β  I know folks love theiri pets but I still do not think this is sanitary Β from a food perspective. See the url for CA law. Unless they provide a designated pet area outside, dogs cannot lick the plates/utensils, who cleans up after a dog accident......No pets in at a restaurant for now (service dogs are the exception). Disney is excellent with their food cleanliness in the parks per the Public health inspections. DTD does not fare as well per Retaurarant inspection. Check the Health Care Agency for the current restaurant inspections. As a Public health nurse I always check to see who is keeping clean in their kitchens. Diners beware! - Plumiegirl  8572.4 #3 10:42AM
