    Hello from Germany,

    first post on this boards for me! :)

    Currently we are holding reservations at Venetian (Bella Suite, Venezia Tower) and MGM Grand (Executive 2 Queen Suite) for mid/end of May 15.

    Is there something we should request?
    We never stayed at these hotel before...very looking forward to it.

    I heard that Venezia Tower is a loooong walk, is it really that bad? We do not mind a few steps more, but from what I have heard it is like 2 miles extra, walking three times around the whole resort and changing the elevator like 7 times.

    Between those two reservations we drive down to Disneyland for 3 nights. We drive down on a Saturday. Regarding the traffic, should we drive in the morning, or better at noon?
    Is the speed limit really only like 70 miles per hour for the highway?

    Both resorts are big. I have stayed at MGM and love it. The Executive suite is not a real suite but it is a very nice room. I love MGM because of all the restaurant choices. The Venetian is a step above MGM. I have never stayed at the Venetian but I doubt you have to make an elevator change go get to your room. The big resorts may seem like a hike to maneuver but certainly not 2 miles. It just feels that way.

    Maximum speed on most US highways is 70 miles an hour. There are higher rates of speed in less populated areas. I don't know about the LA Vegas drive.

    There is one elevator change to get to Venezia tower. Perhaps try $20 trick and ask for the terrazzo suite in the Venezia tower...they are on the 10th floor and have a poolside terrace. The private pool for the Venezia tower is small but very laid back. At certain times of year you have to move around the pool to stay in the sun as the tower shades much of the area. It is a hike to the Venezia rooms but I used to stay in them and really enjoy them. If you come back drunk, it can be a challenge to find your room lol. I have heard that the Venezia rooms were recently remodelled so I may give them another try. I stopped staying when they closed the private registration and the rooms started to show a lot of wear.

    With regards to the drive from LV to LA, it is 70mph, and if you are driving to LA on a Sunday, do it early!! I recently had the "honor" of making that drive towards LA early on a Sunday and it wasn't bad, set cruise at 75 for the most part. I was headed back to LV that afternoon and traffic was very busy, and stop and go at times.

    Welcome to the board fellow German VMBer. It is true that Venezia Tower is a little bit further but I usually expect to walk when I go to Vegas. The suite itself is extremely nice. As for MGM, I have no comment since I never stayed there. :)

    Since the semi truck speed limit is only 55 (terrible law for a 70 MPH zone), I have to disagree with this one. We were constantly hitting the brakes for them the time we drove to Vegas from Disneyland. Get rid of the semis, and pushing 100 becomes more realistic, especially after Baker. My car would probably die going 100 though.
