414 - The Disney Dream Girls

Welcome to this week's Disney Dream Girls Podcast - show number 414 for 12th June 2022. If you want to listen right now - click on the audio player below.Or you can always subscribe via youtube, Apple Podcasts or most other podcast catching places. 

On this week's show, we discuss some recent news and then hop over to Disneyland to help a listener with an accommodation dilemma. 

Where to stay in Disneyland?

Best Western Stovalls Inn is AAA rated and our opinion, great value. There are some deals that include breakfast. It is close to the theme parks too, where you can enter the parks via the Downtown Disney area.

Tropicana Inn and Suites has been open for over 60 years and is on South Harbor Boulevard - just opposite to the entrance to the parks.

Anaheim Marriott is a 4-star hotel that is convenient for the Anaheim Convention Centre and has upscale accommodation. However, it is also within a twenty minutes walk of the park.

Grand Californian is the most luxurious out of all of these options and offers many Disney perks including direct theme park access. However, this comes at a price! For the dates we compared, the Grand Californian cost four times as much as the others!

Where would you go?
