We do the courtyard across street. 

Check Howard Johnson's - HoJo. Whenever we spend the night, that's where we stay.  It's walking distance to the parks and nice.   - Winnie111286  2291.3 #51 10:30PM
There are a few things I have to consider when I book a hotel. 1) Husband has a bad back so I need a really comfy bed. 2) two small children with a stroller and I hate taking shuttles due to taking things off and on. 3) I'm very particular that the room is super clean because my kids are on the floor touching things. I always book on priceline and only book 3 1/2 and up. I normally get The Hilton by the convention center which I love and it's my favorite. The trick with the Hilton if you see it cheap book it cause if you wait it increase from $125.00 to $200.00 right away. I've stayed at Marriot Suites and they are also awesome. Book early cause you can get a good deal. The Royal Crown is decent though they changed their name. All have to pay a parking fee but seems like everywhere is charging for parking. Good luck on your booking. Always read the reviews before you book. - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  733.3 #222 12:57PM

My 2-cents: we love DL hotel.  It is magical.  Yes expensive, but those early entrances into the parks during holiday time are worth their weight in gold.  My daughter would be heartbroken if we went to DL and didnt stay in her room with lights on the headboard that sing her to sleep.   - PixiePrincessPolly  4.8 #17186 6:45PM
We love Embassy Suites! Beautiful place, a nice breakfast every morning. Happy hour & snacks if you want to come back later in the evening for a break...and the shuttle runs constantly and drops you right at the gate.  - azcoolmom  209.9 #1771 10:51PM

How do you get those stickers??

I'm sure most you know this.... But that HUGE beast of a home was NOT Walt's home. ย His original home was a lot more humble. ย They saved only a tunnel and a couple bushes, that's it. ย "We" at the Carolwood Pacific Historical SS saved the backyard Barn and with the generous help of Diane Disney-Miller and the Broggie family (Michael and Sharon), the Barn was moved to 'Travel Town' train park at Griffith Park Los Angeles. ย  ย If you've never been there, please stop by! It's really cool. ย  I work with plastics myself and built the cover for Walt's workbench.. And it gave me goosebumps as I was helping protect Walt's handprints (in axel grease) and tools as he had them there. ย  Great project. ย ย As things are today, I still have a pile of original train track pieces (wood and rails) in a pile in my backyard. ย  ย We tried at one time to help the Barn by selling small token pieces of the track, but that only went for a small time. ย  Oh, strangely enough, that "pile" of track sits in Carlsbad here, far from Anaheim or the Carolwood property. ย In the end... ย In my opinion... It's a shame what they did with Walt's property, house AND neighbors house just to built that insane Estate. ย Then to "suggest" it even carries a resemblance to Walt's smaller home? ย Hmmm.. ย But, that's progress for ya. ย  ย By the way, Walt's train setup was a smaller scale, but to really be blown away, look up Ward Kimball's "Grizzly Flats" backyard train. ย I remember his neighbors just "loving it" when he did a steam up. ย Ha! ย  I'd been there only once, but quite impressive having a full-scale steam engine. ย  ย May they both rest in the Depot called Heaven. ย  8):-) ย  - imtigger  20.6 #6419 10:41AM

Had no issues with running app, then just did recent update, and now cannot launch app from iphone. - PoohBear13  200.8 #1883 2:20PM
Maybe delete the app and re-install like with the last update? - brooke79  182.3 #2104 2:29PM
I think the new update is still propagating, so it might not show for everyone yet. On the detail page, scroll down and look for 5.1.6.1 -- if that is showing, you will be updated with the fix. - Admin  2:33PM
I can no longer use the app. I updated and now the app crashes after 5 seconds. I uninstalled and reinstalled and still the same. Iphone4s. Oh and the constant ads are unbearable!! Please fix the crashing issue! - PinkTink88  25.1 #5817 11:15PM

The Grand is beautiful but DLH is my preference. All remodeled and very Disney and indoor/outdoor restaurants are great and not too crowded. Pool areas are more fun too.
