Touring the hotel, not wheelchair friendly

Palmdale, California

Entering from the park, DCA, is easy enough, although if should you walk away from this hotel toward the street-side, you cant get back into it!, at least not while sitting in a Disneyland rented wheelchair. If your wearing a business suit, youll have no problem walking past the sidewalk goons in yellow jackets, however they will stop and scream at anyone entering the property who is in a wheel chair for some reason. The security guards wont tell you any of this until you have already left, only then tell you, a they did me, to walk about a mile and a half through downtown disney to regain access to DCA.
