When planning your trip to the Disneyland Resort in California, sometimes it makes sense to book your lodging separately. Oftentimes, you can find some good “room only discounts”, especially during the off- peak seasons. Here are some of the places to look for lodging discounts.
1. The Disneyland Resort website sometimes has specials for their three on-site resort hotels or for the Disneyland “Good Neighbor” hotels. (To get to the website, just Google Disneyland Resort). Depending on the time of year, there are often discounts available. These “room only” discounts can range from 15% to 30% off of one of their hotels. Other possible offers are “buy a certain number of nights lodging and the next one or maybe two nights are free”. Depending on Disneyland’s hotel occupancy forecasts, sometimes they’ll even extend these discounts to include dates during their peak seasons. The added advantage of staying in one of Disneyland’s Resort hotels or “Good Neighbor” hotels is that many are within a 5 to 10 minute walk to the theme parks, so you also save on theme park parking fees.
2. Senior discounts are usually available for ages 60 and over based on availability. Discounts can be as high as 30% off of a room at the Disneyland Resort or “Good Neighbor” hotel. Seniors may even be able to book up to two rooms at this discounted rate. A valid photo ID is required at hotel check-in. Call Disneyland Resort Reservations at 1-714-956-6425 for more information.
3. Triple A discounts are often available to their auto club members. You can look for these deals on their website or in person if you have a local office nearby. However, sometimes their discounts are geared more toward package vacation deals. You may get a better deal for “room only” discounts by calling Disneyland Resort Reservations directly at 1-714-956-6425 and asking for the Triple A discount. Be prepared to have your Triple A membership card available at booking and at hotel check-in.
4. Military discounts are usually available for current and retired members. A military ID will be required at check-in and the Military person booking the reservation is generally required to be staying in the room. There may be “block out” dates for these discounts. For current Disneyland “room only” Military discounts call Disneyland Resort Reservations at 1-714-956-6425 or contact a participating U.S. military base.
5. Disneyland Rewards Visa Card members are sometimes offered “room only” discounts for the Disneyland hotels. To obtain these discounts you will have to charge your lodging to your Disneyland Rewards Visa Card. Call 1-877-553-4763 to find out if there are any current Disney Visa discounts being offered. If you are not currently a Disney Rewards Visa Card holder, you may want to look at some of their membership benefits. They usually offer discounted theme park stroller rental and discounts on Disneyland Resort merchandise, as well as discounts on Disneyland tours. They also usually offer a daily, private Disney character “meet and greet” in Disneyland’s California Adventure Park.
6. Hotel Industry “room only” discounts are sometimes available to people who work for a U.S. or international hotel. To check on a possible discount call Disneyland Resort Reservations at 1-714-956-6425. Proof of current hotel employment will be required upon check-in.
7. California Resident discounts are oftentimes available. These discounts may only apply to certain California zip codes. Watch local California newspapers for offers. You can also call Disneyland Resort Reservations at 1-714-956-6425 to inquire about current offers.
8. ARES Travel is a reliable travel agency that specializes in Disneyland Resort lodging and tickets. Visit their website or contact them directly at 1-800-680-0977. Be sure to ask about their cancellation policy and fees before booking.
These are only a few of the many sources for discounted Disneyland hotel deals, but the sources listed above will give you a good place to start in looking for a Disneyland hotel offer that fits your individual needs and budget.
