We did 2 days at Disneyland (3 hotel nights), 2 days in Carlsbad, CA for Lego Land, and then 1 night in San Diego at a beach front hotel.
Trying to get all the reviews typed up now.
I posted some of my first day savings while I was on vacation and will add to that. Really saved some money on meals which made up and helped offset the money I had to spend in the parks.
Here's a picture from our beach front hotel in San Diego ( I saved over $50 on this using a promo code!).
