Anybody ever stay in a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom suite at DLR? Have some questions
SOOOOO excited!!! we leave in 16 days to stay at the Disneyland Hotel, we have been going to Disneyland for 20 years but have never paid the big bucks to stay there. It is A LOT of money and I want to make sure that we enjoy our trip. We are taking my amazing in laws and they are in their 70's so it is important to me that we have a magical time.
I booked a 2 room/ 2 bathroom suite and I have a couple of questions:
1. I have looked online and have youtube so many videos and I am confused. I have seen a 2 room/2 bath suite that looked like it just had a connecting door, no sitting room, so isn't that just 2 standard rooms with a door connecting the 2 rooms? but yet it was clearly stated that it was a 2 room suite? I don't want this type of room.
2. I have seen a 2 room/2 bath with a sitting room and a balcony, do all the suites have a balcony?
3. I have seen a 2 room/2 bath suite with tons of windows, I believe it was called a corner suite?
So it appears that Disney has a lot of different versions of suites. I want a room where we can see the fireworks from our room. Do I request a suite with a balcony? Or a corner room suite? Which tower is the tallest that has the best view of the fireworks?
Anything else I should know about staying here? Thanks so much!

Ok in no particular order, we had a 2 bedroom suite with a parlor, which was such an understatement, you could have played football in that room plus one of the bedrooms had a king with private bath, the other room had 2 queens and a daybed with a bath with a separate shower and tub at opposite ends of the bathroom with the vanity in the middle but all behind one door so not really as 'flexible' as it could have been. In the parlor part we had a half bath, a sofa sleeper a couple of easy chairs, a table with 4 chairs and a tv/dvd player in a cabinet. The king bedroom had 2 entrances but the 2 queen had to be entered from the parlor which had one of the two entrances for the king bedroom...so two rooms opened out into the hall. We did NOT have a fireworks view, we had a pool view.
Just a heads up none of the rooms at the DLH have balconies anymore, they went away during the refurb.
If you want a fireworks view you need to ask for a park view which you will pay more for most of the time. I do believe all 3 towers are the same height but I wouldn't swear to that statement.

Thank you so much for replying. It's good to hear that the rooms are big, I want to make sure even though their will only be 5 of us that everyone has plenty of room and privacy. I thought I read that the Frontier tower has 14 floors but the other towers have 11? But then again I have been reading every article I can find and I'm realizing I could be mixing everything up. I think I am trying so hard to make this trip perfect because of the money that we are spending that I am stressing myself out!! Planning is usually the fun part but I am overwhelmed!!
So no rooms have balconies anymore? Bummer I was looking on the Disneyland website and I thought it showed a picture with a balcony for a 2 room suite. Off to go look again...
I know the Adventure tower has 11 floors and I really think the Fantasy tower does as well. The Frontier tower is the only one I'm not sure about. We've stayed in a suite (not a 2BR) and it had a nice living room type area with a sofa and a chair and TV cabinet. The sofa pulled out into a bed. The other room had a king bed and a bathroom in it. That room itself was a little on the small side but the living room was nice. It had a 2Q lock off on the other side of the living room. We know this because my in laws were in the room next to us and we were able to open the connecting door. I'm guessing it would be a 2 room suite if booked that way.
ETA- That particular room was on the 10th or 11th floor of the Fantasy tower.

How do you like your kindle?
Uh, it's an iPad.
The Frontier tower still has balconies on the top floor. I don't know if there are suites there, but they definitely have rooms with balconies.
