Coast to Coast 2018!

Recommended Posts

Had this crazy idea to do a Disney Coast to Coast trip for the Christmas season this year.  We were able book our Florida portion (Saratoga Springs) but had to waitlist for California (Grand Californian).  We didn't have much hope to get the California portion but, we received some good news this weekend...we're going to California!  By way of Florida!  We get to go see the Christmas decor in each park!

Dec 3-10, Saratoga Springs 

Dec 10-14, Grand Californian

And now it's time to plan those plane tickets, ADRs and Fast passes! 

We'll be burning though those DVC points again!

I don't think you would be disappointed!  DL does a good job of keeping you immersed in the magic.  At least, while staying in the Disney hotels which are all on the west side of the parks. So, the rest of the world tends to be out of site.  I would think, staying at a third party hotel would expose you to "the rest of the world".  Those look to be on all other sides of the park and it is tourist central out there!

As for the parks, I have found I really enjoy DL and CA.  It is much smaller...maybe, more cozy?  I don't think a Disney veteran would need a week (and more) out there like WDW, three full days seems to be a sweet spot for us. We have done a week at DL but we did have a couple days when we went and did other stuff (Safari Park, Queen Mary, Science Museum).
