You will be staying approximately 5 miles from Bryce Canyon National Park. This area is widely known for spectacular sunrises and sunsets!
Here is a park map that shows where the train arrives in relation to the rest of the park. Everything is centrally located!
Here is a picture I took when I was at the park two years ago. There is amazing photography available for wildlife!
The nice thing about staying in the park is the opportunity to see the canyon at various times of the day!
Here is one of the many stops you'll have while visiting the Grand Canyon Visitor Center area. There are plenty of places to snap gorgeous photos.

The family will love this and so will you!
The only thing missing from this photo is the Edens family!
This is a basic trip plan. I've shown the prices for hotels in Bryce Canyon, UT as well as Williams, AZ. I was able to get you a hotel within the Grand Canyon National Park. It is not fancy in any way, but it is super cool to be able to stay in the park itself! You mentioned the budget was between $2,000 - $2,500. Although I did not price gasoline and all your food, I believe you will be able to stay within budget with this basic plan. If you decide to go with this plan, we need to book quickly because the train and hotel is already booking up for the summer season.
