I concur on that!  I believe that my gf and I for the two of us came out to be around $150 or so. That included a couple of drinks, two appetizers, and two entrees. 

similar price point with way better food (my personal opinion). If you plan to drink, though, it will be more expensive. - missmimi90  2002.9 #73 5:51PM
Agreed and the dining room is very nice. To save $$ eat apps in the lounge, still lovely! - ShariRenee  6442.6 #16 9:16PM
We haven't had a good experiance at Carthay yet, except for the lounge downstairs. But Blue Bayou has always been a great experience! And you just can't beat the atmosphere there in the Pirates ride! It's a prefect Disney experiance πŸ˜πŸ‘ - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4406.2 #27 6:13PM
I love Blue Bayou, we eat there every time we visit DLR. That said I have become more and more disappointed as they whittle down the menu more and more at BB. So if you want more options I would suggest Carthay Circle but as I said, we never skip eating at Blue Bayou.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  242.1 #1415 9:15PM
I personally love Carthay!!! πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ I've had pretty much everything on the menu and never had anything I didn't like. I think Carthay has more options then Blue Bayou. Price between the two are pretty much the same.  - caramiapoohAKAface  3918.0 #34 9:35PM

As  it's not announced yet before anybody gets all techincal,  but let's just say in the rumor mill that we may see a lot of the castle closed and surrounding area as they install new launchers and equipment for the 60th anniversary fireworks so, so this limited time is from now till rumored early may. This is also why soundsationonal  parade return so fast and fantastic is running everyday now since won is done for a few months and it won't be long before the new 60th parade premiers.  - pikarich  4790.4 #23 11:44PM

I mostly stayed at the good neighbor hotel because of price. I stayed at many variety of good neighbor hotel and some of them are good, some are bad. Just depends if you want a place that has free breakfast so you don't have to buy breakfast or a room that has a fridge and microwave so you can bring your own meals. The possibilities are endless!!

Depends on your budget and the reason you'll be utilizing the room most often - SPandEvLover  3987.0 #31 1:58PM

My kids love the Disneyland hotel pool, and there are magic morning days most days alternating either park, if you can wake up early. Saturday and Sunday has magic morning hours for both parks. Also, while the kids are in the pool you can grab some tropical drink or beer at Trader Sam's. Also, you are right next to ESPN Zone, in which my kids love the arcade. If your budget allows--then go fo it! - tink1999  18.2 #7340 6:39PM
