Your resort or hotel is your home-away-from-home, and deserves special consideration. Here are our some of our best lodging tips:

Get an extra day of use of hotel facilities! Plan your flight (or drive) home late in the day. Pack a bag with your travel clothes (include plastic bags for wet swimsuits) and check out at the normal time—you still have use of the pool, etc. for the rest of the day. Swim all day and then change in poolside restrooms. It’s like having an extra day, and all we do is relax by the pools and go home feeling refreshed.

Always check back for discounts on your hotel rooms. Many readers report they received better discounts when they called back later to inquire about rates.

Stay on track on vacation by continuing to worship or attend your meetings. Many houses of worship are near Disneyland and there are loads in Los Angeles—get a good list at http://www.usachurches.org . Friends of Bill W. (Alcoholics Anonymous) can find local meeting information at http://www.oc-aa.org.

“If you can afford it, stay at Grand Californian Resort. It's not as expensive as Grand Floridian at Walt Disney World, so it may be in your budget. The hotel is fabulous! Be sure to take the guided tour of the hotel as it provides a lot of information and points of interest that you would miss just walking around on your own. It's proximity to both parks and Downtown Disney (and the other two Disney hotels) can't be beat. If you want a quiet room, request one that is not facing Downtown Disney or the pool. If you need a microwave, call the front desk once you arrive and request one. If a microwave is available, they will deliver it promptly. Last tip: It's quicker to walk through Disney California Adventure to get to Disneyland than through Downtown Disney, so, if you have a park hopper ticket, take advantage of this.“ -- by tip contest winner Shirley Garcowski

Magical Memories

“Our favorite experience in an off-property hotel at Disneyland was a stay at the Howard Johnson’s. Request a room on the second floor as these rooms have skylights! Our first night in Anaheim, we arrived tired from our flight, grabbed something to eat, then returned to our room to get some sleep for our big adventure the next day. We had just settled in and turned off the light when we heard ‘boom!’ and saw the Disneyland fireworks explode overhead! How fun to lay in bed on our first night and watch the fireworks through our skylight!"
