Also we are going there for the first week of January. Is it very busy in the parks at that time of year ? What is the weather like ?
Weather is usually spring jacket or if you're lucky you might be able to pull out the shorts. Hit or miss, basically. Parks will be very quiet though, so that should be a great time to go!

Looking at the disney resorts @disneyworld and even the cheapest ones are significantly more exp than surrounding hotels.

Any specific advantage if u stay at the resorts ?
Extra magic hours will let you in specific parks before/after general public. Transportation is usually very good and can get you all over the place in WDW, as well as to-and-from MCO airport.

We like to stay at the courtyard Anaheim theme park entrance.

It's very very close to the park and next to am McDonalds. We would pick up breakfast on the way to the park and eat in line.

We are a family of six and they have rooms with bunk beds which work out great for our family. They also have a great waterpark for the kids. Definitely not the cheapest but I think good value.

One time we stayed at the residence inn as it had free breakfast but it was a bit further away and we found that it made huge difference after you were on your feet all day.

We did Cali 4 years ago and we were not allowed to bring food into the park... Seems as though they changed the policy at both parks...
Bring in your own food and snacks if you are on a budget as eating in the parks is expensive
Disneyland will let you bring in your own food if you're reasonable about it. No problem packing home-made sandwiches and water in your backpack. They will however not let you bring in a cooler filled with food and drinks, nor will they let you bring in take-out bags from a nearby restaurant/fast food joint.

Disneyland is always busy. There are off-peak days but don't kid yourself -- it's still pretty darn busy. Still, going in mid to late-January on a weekday is probably the best bet for avoiding the crowds (although it will still be crowded). And if you're Canadian, you're going to find it balmy in January. We took the kids to Disneyland in late January once and it was 17 C to 22 C every day. Even when there was some rain, it was still pretty warm. We did encounter some pansy Americans wearing parkas though.

Right there with you -- fortunately, my wife is actually cheaper than me!

That's basically how we do it, but maybe just brings snacks from the hotel (eg. bananas, dry cereal, muffins, etc.) rather than a lunch. There are cheap ways of eating, at least for Disneyland. I'd often go out to the Pizza Press (or some other restaurant) across the street and bring a couple of pies back. All the other families look at them in envy, haha. One Disney staffer saw me bringing them in and told me it's the unofficial hangout for cast members.
If you have a car, Little Saigon is not too far from Disneyland and you can get a variety of great Vietnamese/Chinese meals for the entire family for inexpensive prices. We had some take out dim sum (hot and ready to eat) at a Vietnamese supermarket and it was really delicious. Fed a family of four for under $20.

Sorry to derail, but where did you see the BOGO Legoland deal?
It's too late but for future reference, Legoland has great deals on their hotel rooms and admission tickets during their Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales. Our kids love staying at the Legoland hotel (and being completely immersed in the Lego bubble) so we always book our room during this sale every year. This year, the sale offered hotel rooms at 30% off, BOGO tickets, and hotel/ticket combination packages. Unlike previous years, rooms with balconies were not included in the sale.

We've brought in a small lunch size cooler under our stroller with about 6 bottles of water and brought in Mcdonalds bags with no questions.

We are going second week of January this year. We've heard it's much slower at this time of year.

We went last January, early enough to still get the Christmas decorations at Disney. The park was still very busy. You have to watch out for when the blackout dates for the local annual pass holders are lifted, because we found that to be the main driver of the busy-ness. Locals also want to get in while the Christmas decor is still up.

It was quite wet when we went last year. We lucked out on our Disney days as 2 of the 3 were dry. I recall it was about 12-13* lows, and just under 20* in the afternoon if the sun was out.

Do you know if Expedia.ca will email you the tickets right away as I assume Disney would? Just trying to figure out if there are any disadvantages with buying from Expedia.ca.

Here's a question on this deal. We are looking at getting multiple 5 day passes....... amounting to nearly $1K USD (~$1300CND) . On another thread Shoppers this week has their promo on GC's where buying $200CND worth of a card yields 8000pts ( yes we are shoppers point collectors). Happened to see there are DISNEY loadable gc's at Shoppers from $50-500. Just curious, has anyone had any experience using Disney GC's on online purchases? (rumour has it you can go to Disney's GC website and combine GC's as apparently there is only 1(one) GC allowed per online pass purchase transcations? Adds up to lots of SHoppers points if feasible.............? Thanks
Let me know if you have tried this and if you were successful in using the GCs to buy the DC passes. thanks!

From the reviews on the expedia site, people are suggesting that you do the actual ticket pickup, possibly on the first day when you aren't entering the park, because the process could be quite long to do the ticket pickup.

-"I wouls recommend people exchange their vouchers the day or night prior to when they want to use them at the park as the process is lengthy. The lady had to get help to do ours, but got it sorted out."

yes, but can only use one gc to purchase tickets so if you have multiple gc's call in or go to their gc website and combine into one. Then use it to purchase passes.....
