Disneyland is only 14 miles from my home. So, it's an economical place to go if you buy a pass. the Grand California Hotel is where we vacation once a year for 2 days. We wait until they have a pass holders special price. We save on not having any travel expenses as well. We're close enough to drive home to feed our cats and not have put them up in a kennel. We like to come here on weekends to enjoy the parks and just walk around. Today we walked around the Hotel and Disney's California Adventure park.
