For our last day of hotel tours, we started off with a great breakfast at the Clarion Hotel. This is a popular hotel for families since it offers great rates, newly renovated rooms and a hot breakfast each morning - just for Get Away Today guests. Not only will your family enjoy being close to the park, but your wallet will enjoy getting your 3rd night free and free parking when you book with us. It would be even better if you got 2 nights for free, so make sure to enter our giveaway!

Our next stop was the Hyatt Place at Anaheim Resort, a modern and spacious hotel that was built in 2014. The Hyatt Place is definitely a favorite. It's easy to see why with their larger rooms, free WiFi and daily breakfast buffet. You can't go wrong with a hotel like this!
We took a short walk to the Anaheim Cortona Inn & Suites next. This is another great value property that offers free breakfast, a heated pool and free WiFi. It also has suites for all sizes of families too!
Next we visited the Best Western Raffles Inn & Suites. This hotel is less than a mile from the Disneyland Resort and offers both standard rooms and suites (the largest fitting up to 8 people). It's a great choice if you are looking to save on price without skimping on the amenities. Plus, you can get a 4th night free on their standard rooms when you book through us. Make sure to enter our giveaway for a chance to win a 2-night stay as well!

We headed for a quick tour of the Homewood Suites by Hilton Anaheim Resort-Convention Center next. This hotel barely opened last year and we were lucky enough to have toured it before it opened during last year's FAM trip. Since then, it has quickly become a favorite of both our staff and the families we work with. We can't help but love the free breakfast and modern suites!
Our next visit was the Hyatt House, our newest hotel partner. This beautiful all-suite property opened earlier this year and has already wowed us. It's a great choice if you are looking for a large suite with great amenities like a full kitchen and grocery delivery service.
The Portofino Inn & Suites was our next stop. This hotel is only a half a mile from the Disneyland resort and surrounded by tons of great food options. The kid suites make it perfect for larger families and you just can’t beat the location. Plus, your resort fee is only $5 per night when you book with Get Away Today – a $9 savings! Of course, the best savings awould be if it’s free, so make sure to enter our 2-night giveaway.

We skipped across the parking lot to our next hotel, the Springhill Suites Convention Center. This Marriott property is another perfect choice for families looking to be close to the park and have breakfast included. You can’t go wrong with the daily breakfast buffet or the large family suites that are less than a mile away from Disneyland and close to all kinds of food options. It’s a property you will want to see for yourself and we’re giving away a 2-night stay so you can!

One of our newest hotels, the Residence Inn at Anaheim Resort Convention Center, was our next stop. The hotel just opened this August and has amazed our staff and guests. This beautiful property offers amazing kid suites, full kitchens, a rooftop pool and daily breakfast buffet. It also includes a grocery shopping service, public BBQ area and kid splash area in the nightly rate. If you want to be close to the park and stay in a top of the line suite, this is the hotel for you.

We walked to the Sheraton Park Hotel next, where we enjoyed a delicious lunch. Before they wowed us with avocado quinoa salad and flourless chocolate cake, we were able to tour the resort. The Sheraton Park Hotel really does feel more like a resort than a hotel, with sprawling grounds, Olympic sized pool and plenty of dining options. If you're looking to stay somewhere different from your normal hotel, the Sheraton's oversized rooms and close location to Disneyland won't disappoint. It'll be even better if you win a 2-night stay!

After enjoying our lunch, we walked over to the Embassy Suites Anaheim South. This all-suite hotel goes above and beyond the service expected with every Embassy. Your kids won't forget the roaring lion in the atrium while your wallet won't forget how much you saved with the free breakfast and nightly manager reception.
The Hilton Garden Inn Anaheim/Garden Grove was our next site inspection. This hotel offers bright decor and deluxe bedding within a mile from the Disneyland Resort. Microwaves are standard in every room and you can save $6 per night on parking when you book with Get Away Today.
We headed to the Homewood Suites by Hilton Anaheim Maingate next and were amazed by the updates happening. The guest rooms have a fresh new look while still offering the Homewood standard of full kitchens and spacious layouts. Their rooms aren't the only things with a new look - they are current renovating their pool and dining areas as well. The daily breakfast buffet and free light dinners Monday through Thursday are about to get even more popular. We want you to see how amazing these updates are, so we're giving away another 2-night stay!

The Anaheim Wyndham Garden Grove was next on our list and amazed like always. Not only is this a deluxe hotel, but it includes so many great things like a hot breakfast buffet, free shuttle and free parking - all exclusively for Get Away Today guests in 2016. The pool area has cabanas that don't require rental reservations and cute market lights that make the whole area even better at night. Light renovations are planned for the rooms within the upcoming season and we are sure that will make this hotel even better. You can get your 4th night free when you book with us, but make sure to enter our giveaway for a chance to get two nights free!

We visited the Sheraton Anaheim South Garden Grove next and were just as impressed. This hotel also offers a 4th night free with us that makes it such a good deal! They also include a free shuttle (shared with the Wyndham), plush beds and great location that make the Sheraton hard to beat. If you are looking for a deluxe hotel without paying for a ton of extras, this is a great choice for you!
After our full day of hotels, we checked in to the Great Wolf Lodge. If you have never stayed at a Great Wolf Lodge, you need to add it to your list. The Lodge is more than just a hotel - it has a huge water park, arcade, kids' spa, interactive games and multiple dining locations. You wouldn't even need to leave the resort to keep your whole family entertained!
The best part is that the use of the water park and most entertainment is included in your rate for up to four guests with Get Away Today! You could spend a whole day on the water slides and then have a pajama dance party or play the night away in their 24/7 arcade. We couldn't get checked in fast enough to give everything a try!
Our staff took an hour to enjoy the resort before getting ready for the annual hotel partner reception. Since we see so many hotels during our FAM, we don't necessarily get to spend the most time with each contact. The reception helps gather all of our contacts in one place so we can take more time to visit with them. We spent most of our evening laughing and chatting with all of our great partners. This always makes us so grateful that we get to work with such wonderful hotel and attraction partners. Like the sign says, we think they are as legendary, epic, awesome, fantastic and nice as our staff is as playing Gigamon!
After the chatting and yummy snacks, we were given free time. Some of us decided to get right to resting up for tomorrow while the rest explored more of the resort. We found some great games at the arcade and got to see who was the best aim in the 4-D theater experience. You could really spend your whole vacation without leaving the Great Wolf Lodge.
You can save for a limited time on any 2-night or longer Southern California vacation package (whether at the Great Wolf Lodge or somewhere else) by using our promo code: FAM2016 to save $20 when booking online. We always have the best price guarantee, so saving even more on our discounted prices couldn't get sweeter!
Speaking of sweet, we are so excited for all the sweet treats we'll get to enjoy in Disneyland tomorrow. Disney day is always a favorite on the FAM trip and we can't wait!
