I'm taking my kids to Disneyland for the first time and we're using points to stay at the Residence Inn Garden Grove.  Does anyone have any tips regarding staying at this hotel?

Thanks,

Bill

    This is a great hotel for a Disneyland trip. We have stayed there several times. It is a little bit of a drive to the park and I believe it costs about $10 a day to park at Disneyland, or you can pay for the shuttle bus that picks you up infront of the hotel. If the hotel is full, breakfast can be very crowded so get there early. Plenty f choices, even for kids who are picky eaters. There are several places to eat close by and an Albertson's grocery store within a mile of the hotel so you can stock the fridge. The staff is very friendly. Hope you have a great stay.

    This is a condo-style Residence Inn located in a cluster of several other hotels about 3-4 long blocks from the Disneyland Resort.  Good breakfast buffet.  Not really walking distance to the resort, so you can either take the Anaheim shuttle ($3) which makes stops at other area hotels or drive yourself.  Several decent chain restaurants within walking distance from the hotel (Buca di Beppo, Joe's Crab Shack, etc.).  If you can, get the 2-bedroom suite where the 2nd bedroom has bunk beds and TV for the kids.

    If you have time, you might want to run the kids down to the beach while you are there.  Garden Grove is only about 15 minutes from the beach,  depending on traffic.  Seal Beach is a nice area where you can park and walk around. You can go from the sand to Main Street where there are shops and restaurants.  You might also consider a day at Knott's Berry Farm, which is another amusement park that is fun. They have a restaurant just outside the park that serves the best fried chicken.  The wait can be long - but it's worth it!  Have a great time!

    We chose the Residence Inn Anaheim Maingate instead of the one in Garden Grove primarily because of its closer location to Disneyland.  I think walking to/from the Park is possible from the Maingate, and it also has the Family Unit which has a kids' bedroom with bunk beds.  Still, you can't go wrong with a Residence Inn.  Of all the condo-style, family suite type properties, I now only consider Residence Inns and the Staybridge Suites (Holiday Inn brand).

    This hotel works great for families with a complete breakfast onsite, full kitchen, restaurants within walking distance, large pool area and Target for food/supplies across the street.  AAA members get free Disneyland parking, so we prefer to rent a car.  Be prepared during summer for breakfast crowds if you are late diners.  We head down early to get through breakfast and get to Mickey's place when it opens.  Perfect hotel, we love it!

    I cannot agree more to the previous posts.  This is the best choice for proximity and for the family altogether.
