The best made plans

So I finally decided on a hotel for Disneyland, thanks to comments made by you guys. Park Vue Inn, had pretty much everything I wanted with a price I was willing to pay. Bunk beds, great extended continental breakfast, walking distance to the parks, free parking, free wifi. . And then we went and moved our plans up two weeks. We never get to vacation with my family, so I thought it would be fun to go at the same time as them. Plus, then my kids won't have to miss school. But, then Park Vue was booked for those days. So were both the Best Westerns close by that I chose as my second and third choices. So was the Red Lion. My choices were narrowed down and I had to make some comprimises. I found a good deal on a room at the Carousel Inn and Suites.(Still a tad more than I wanted to pay, but I know it will be a nice room.) They charge for parking, but are within walking distance of the parks. I heard their continental breakfast is very limited, so I might just have to pack some Costco muffins and fruit. They don't have bunk beds for the kids or a seperate "suite" area that I really thought would be nice, so I could watch a movie when the kids passed out. But I'm guessing that they will be exhausted enough that I'll still be able to do that anyway. So the count down is on. I'm so excited!

Oh I am so pleased you research your holiday / hotel options like me. I feel like you can never have to much info ;-)
Have a ball in DL ... your planning sounds great.
