Found this hotel by looking on Trip Advisor for the best-valued family hotel within walking distance of Disneyland. And boy did we find a winner. The hotel suited our kids (aged 4, 8 and 10) perfectly with a great family-friendly pirate waterworld, and another area with a deeper pool for the older kids. Our room was in building 1 which was right next to the lobby and at the front of the hotel and our room on the fifth floor. From here we could enjoy the nightly fireworks at Disneyland which was an added bonus, though you should check to find a room like 1501 or 1601 so the trees don't obscure the view. They start around 8.40pm. For food there's a reasonable minimart on the ground floor which stocks a range of foodstuffs and gifts. We bought the cereal boxes and milk which was great for the kids. And for dinner there's Mimi's right across the street which costs about $60US for a meal for 2 adults and 3 hungry kids including drinks (but not tip) which was good value. Overall, we'll definitely be back!!
