Hello! We're regular visitors to WDW and are planning a trip in October of 2021 to DLR. At Disney World, we always stay in the bubble but after doing just preliminary research, it seems as if the DLR hotels are a lot more expensive than hotels on Harbor Blvd. Is there any real reason to stay at a place like the Grand Californian over someplace like Park Place or Tropicana? There aren't any perks that go along with staying at a Disney-owned property there, right? My husband would love to stay at the Grand Californian, but I'm finding the price tag hard to swallow, especially when you can stay at a hotel right across the street from Disneyland for literally 1/3 of the price. Is there any reason that staying at a Disney hotel is worth the price tag out there? Thanks!
