Disneyland on a budget...

Sorry we were away from internet for a few's so very difficult! I promise the BatB story will continue asap. Hopefully we haven't bored you to death yet. Linda and I are getting a great kick out of it.

Anyways we are tired and ready to rest at home after 3 days at the Disneyland Resort. Linda and I found a great place to stay right across the street from Disney California Adventure Park called the Anabella Hotel.

It was a fantastic hotel...I'm talking it should have been $200 a night not the $115 (w/ parking) we paid. It was only a 15 minute walk to the Disneyland entrance, we never started the car once we parked it in front of our room.

It was a great deal and we'd stay there again. In fact, we probably have to since we just bought 4 annual passes!

Of course the word "budget" caught my eye. ;) Nice find on the hotel. I'm making a note of it. We've stayed at the Ramada-Maingate before, which ends up being $94, but the Annabella looks much nicer!

(we're enjoying the BatB story, too, and cracking up at the late 80's references)

Hey Jen,
I thought it might ;)

You'd be proud of us...we budgeted ourselves to one meal out per day. So we stocked up on oatmeal, beef jerky, bottles of water ($3-4 in the park per or 24 bottles for $4 @ Walmart), wraps, salads, muffins, fruit, etc at Trader Joes, WalMart, and Costco on the way down.

The nice thing was you parked right outside your room so it didn't look weird when we took our cooler full of food in and Linda's hotpot from college days.

It was pretty sweet! Linda did a great job planning the whole thing out!

Oh I forgot to say that we walked through the Grand Californian Hotel to make the walk so quick to Disneyland...
