Member Monday: Family, Disney and Beaches – Anaheim Had it All

Anaheim, California, is one of those places that suits the entire family. The beaches, sun and Disneyland are all Global Discovery Vacations member Cyndi S. and her family needed during their stay at Dolphin’s Cove Resort. Read about their wonderful trip in this week’s Member Monday:

Where would you recommend a fellow member to go to…
Eat
We ate breakfast at Denny’s quite of few mornings because it was located right across the parking lot. Very convenient and the price was right.

Shop
We did our food shopping at grocery stores nearby and souvenir shopping at the area attractions such as Disney and California Adventure. It could be due to the fact that we had our two-year-old granddaughter along.

Have fun/attractions
Three main attractions that we were very impressed with: DisneylandCalifornia Adventure Park and the Santa Monica Pier. Fun family activities!

What was your favorite…
Resort/Condo Amenity
My favorite resort activities were the warm pool/hot tub and the putting range.

Place to go in the destination
We love the beaches! Many beautiful beaches to explore. We spent time at one in particular called Mother’s Beach. Nice playground for young children.

Why did you choose this destination? Were you traveling for a special occasion?
This destination was close to my daughter’s home in LaHabra and it was close to Disneyland. We were mainly traveling to California to visit my daughter and her family.

What was your favorite memory of your vacation?
My favorite memory was the look on my granddaughter’s face as the huge waves were coming in at the Santa Monica Pier.

Any tips for a traveler to this resort or destination? Anything you think they should bring?
The resort was clean and the pool was very nice. The resort even had a Super Bowl party for us with food and drinks! The resort had everything we needed – towels included. It also had a very nice laundromat (free to guests), so you don’t need to pack a lot of clothes.

How long have you been a Global Discovery Vacations member?
My husband and I are new members to Global Discovery Vacations, purchasing it in 2015. Although, we are not new to the Global Discovery Vacations family because my sister has been a member for over 10 years and has shared many vacations with us.

Why did you join the club?
With our children, now adults themselves and raising families, we thought it was time to purchase something that the whole family can use. We have four children and five grandchildren, and we like to travel as a family when we can arrange our schedules to do so.

How many trips have you taken using your membership?
This was our first trip using our own membership.

Why do you think traveling is important?
Travelling is fun. Seeing parts of the world that are different from your own environment is great. And of course, who doesn’t like to relax in the warm sun (especially when you live in Minnesota)?
