TechKnowledge Travel Plans

I just booked my flight and room for ASTD TechKnowledge in Anaheim the second week in February. This will be about my umpteenth time working across Katella Boulevard from the Kingdom of the Mouse.

You don't need to stay at the Convention hotels. I have never stayed at the Hilton or the Marriott on the Convention Center grounds. Too rich for my blood. Five years ago I stayed at a cheapo motel on Harbor for $40/night; it's since been torn down.

This time around, I'll be at the Anabella. It's on Katella, a five-minute walk from the Conference Center. Clean. Friendly. Laid back. I had a good experience there two years ago.


A deluxe room goes for $64/night ($55 before tax) from hotel.net.

My flight from Oakland to Orange County is costing more than I'd planned on: $111 roundtrip (Alaska Air, orbitz.com) because I didn't reserve far enough in advance to qualify for Southwest's $60 ticket.


I wouldn't dream of paying to go to DisneyLand. (I did it long ago; my son has outgrown it; I consider Disney almost fascist). However, you can get the Disney aura by walking through Downtown Disney, a Disneyesque shopping mall with restaurants. It's walking distance from the hotels.

Drop me an email if you'd like to meet while I'm in Southern California.

Ha - I *knew* there were a few of you Americans that felt the same way about Disney - when I was in Florida, no-one in the office really understood why I had zero interest in the mouse. Watch it though, that's unpatriotic talk you're using there, buddy ;-) Reminds me, interesting comment about Disney's non-cluetrain-like plans to lay off animation staff - http://stevenf.com/mt/archives/000505.php
