Is it worth staying at Disneyland resort in California?

I am planning our first family vacation and we have chosen Disneyland in California. We have two children ages 5 and 3 and believe it would be the most appropriate place to visit but we wonder if Disney resort is woth paying the extra bucks. any advice?

  • Actually alejandra559, you can go to and get all the information about prices, even what type of menus they offer. Staying in the resort can be a lot of fun. They like to spoil you there. Plus, you take a tram right into the park. No car or wait in line. Everything is paid up front. Fun things depends on the age. They have areas just for little people, where you ride Dumbo or in a big cup. They have shows and rides for older kids/ adults too. They have hands on stuff in Tomorrow land, they have fun places in Frontier land too. Like riding on a ship or climbing a tree house. There's also a boat ride that takes you into the wild jungles that's a lot of fun! How much money you spend is up to you. If you contact a Travel agent, they may get you a package deal where some of your meals are included. Also check with the resort, they too may have something. Also ck Chamber of Commerce for visitor packet! Have fun!!!

  • No it is to pricey. I Stay at the sheraton close to disneyland and they provide a ride over and back every 15 or 30 minutes throughout the day. It is a nice hotel and a lot cheaper. Check the website and sometimes if you prepay it can be 25% less. You can also join there free rewards club for staying at the sheraton hotels and it adds up so fast. You can also buy the tickets there at the hotel so you dont have to wait in the line at disneyland. We stay there every year when we go.

  • Definitely check out the Disney website. They have all sorts of deals and discounts for prepaying, including the tickets.

    We didn't stay at the resort but at a "neighborhood hotel" right across from the main gate. It was less expensive and but a little more of a walk. I actually had a tab open on my computer for disney, expedia, the hotel sites, and google maps to see where everything was and to see if the deal I was getting was really a deal. It was.

    My kids were 4, 9, & 11. They had a blast. We had the 3 day park hopper pass and by the middle of the 3rd day we were all ready to drop.
