Funtierland - Condos at Disneyland
 
Hi all

we are looking at condos for our 4 nights at Disneyland in November (31st oct- 4tn Nov) and this area keeps coming up.

As a family of 4 with older teenage girls (17/14) we cannot do hotels anymore as the double/double bed layout is not suitable at all any more for any of us!

We also prefer making our own dinners and packed lunches. While it does save money, it is also a preference.

So the apartment/condo is suitable in that it has separate bedrooms and it has a fully equipped kitchen. Its 20 mins walk to the entrance and has free parking.

Complex has 3 pools.

Reviews are good too.

Its £250 a night so bang on budget.

So it seems perfect. Ticks literally every box. So anyone have experience here?

so, to steal a phrase... if anyone on the Dibb can show just cause why this family cannot lawfully be joined together in Funteirland, let them speak now or forever hold their peace :)

I havenít heard of it and a quick Google suggests itís a rental company renting homes in the Disneyland area rather than a specific resort (so Iím obviously not finding the place you mean). Do you have a link? While I wonít have stayed there I may know the area but I canít figure out where it is.

Thatís what I found. Some of the rentals are not walking distance (though Uber is cheap and easy).

I have stayed in one of their rentals, the one called Suite Escapes 3 but it used to be owned by someone else so Funtierland must of taken it over since then

:wavey:

I have checked the map and I know it is about a 15-20 minute walk to the gates. But interestingly, the multi storey car park for Disney is literally on the other side of the road.

Looked at various reviews and it all seems legit. Getting it through Expedia so have protection too.

Yes, thats the one. But we are going through Expedia.

We are booked in a house with a different company but on Colonial Ave - just up from where you are.

It is worth double checking that their permit is valid here

You can walk over the road to the parking lot and from there to Downtown Disney.

I know the location well - itís really good. We've stayed almost opposite at the Holiday Inn. We cut down Magic Way through the Disneyland hotel because we like the walk that way (may not be quickest, not sure).

yeah - i had seen some slightly dodgy ones where they tell you to say that you are friends of the owner rather then renting! But this is OK. If you look at the area, there is a section that is clearly only for short term lets and this is inside it. The rest is just standard living accommodation and this is an actual named condo.

We have actually booked through Expedia so that gives us an additional level of comfort too.
