The Anaheim Garden Walk is probably a 25 minute walk from the Grand Californian just down Harbor Blvd.from the Main Gate Entrance of Disneyland Resort and then east on Katella. But iyou go through Downtown Disney and you will also need to pass through the security bag check for the parks and the Esplanande. The streets are safe in the Anaheim Resort area and are well taken care of.
Target is at the corner of Harbor Blvd. and Chapman in Garden Grove, just over the border of Anaheim, over a mile south of Disneyland Resort. It's not walkable. You should be able to take the Anaheim Resort Transit Shuttle from the shuttle stop at DLR entrance to a nearby hotel and cross over, or just take an OCTA bus. Sorry I don't know which route for either. It would be a bit cheaper to take the bus, as the ART is $4 a day. However, I remember reading that there is a mini-mart on Harbor Blvd. above Katella. Much closer for snacks. More pricey, but no need for bus/shuttle fare. Someone will probably give a more exact location for that than I can.Edited: 03 February 2010, 15:19
Opps, I meant from the Disneyland Hotel. I meant to edit that when I went back and did the edit. I make too many boo-boos for just one chance to edit to handle!
Oh, and you can take a taxi from in front of the hotel, if you wish. Probably would be just $5 for the Garden Walk and maybe $10 almost for Target.Edited: 03 February 2010, 15:22
Thanks I think cabbing it will be easier.
I think you're right. : )
Taking a cab would be easier. However, if it is a nice day and you are looking for a bit of exercise and want to see the "sights" between Disneyland Hotel and Garden walk, walking is the way to go. Chuck...
You don't think we will get enough exercise walking around Disneyland? lol. When I went to disneyworld I had blisters on top of blisters! Have since learned to invest in good walking shoes. Thanks, will probly walk to Gardenwalk and cab to Target. Any other places to walk to around disneyland?
Chesecake Factory? Really? With all the other unique places to eat.....
Yes, there are no Cheesecake Factory in Canada, where the OP is located.
Folks have different priorities, for Cheesecake Factory, it is good food, large portions and reasonable prices, plus very yummy cheesecakes.
People choose chain restaurants all the time, usually because they do they will get a good product.
Local restaurants can be hit or miss, especially if you don't know the area. And heck, almost all the restaurants in the Disneyland Resort area is a chain, even Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen is part of a chain...
