It’s not very often that Disneyland extends travel offers. Unlike Walt Disney World, Disneyland tends to have a thriving day-trip local base which doesn’t rely too heavily on vacationers making a home at their resorts. As a result, they don’t usually offer the same kinds of hotel discounts or package deals as Disney usually cooks up throughout the year.
But for travel in April and May, Disneyland Resort is offering up a pretty spiffy special; if you book between now and April 27 for most stays between April 7 and May 22, you can save up to 20% per night Sunday-Thursday, and up to 15% per night on Fridays and Saturdays! This deal requires at least a two-night stay. You can add tickets and Character dining and make it into a package, and keep the room discount!
There are little fine-printy things involved; one thing to know up front is that this offer isn’t good on suites, and it can’t be applied to previously-booked rooms. This means that if you had a reservation you’ll have to cancel it and make a new one to get the savings. The offer doesn’t include taxes or hotel fees; there’s a limit of two rooms per party, and five people per room.
Also, understanding the timing of what dates are covered and how can be tricky, so this is how it works: book anytime between right now (RIGHT THIS VERY SECOND!! …Sorry, feeling silly) and April 27, for stays beginning no sooner than April 7 through May 22, 2013. This doesn’t mean that the discount itself ends on May 22, though – that is done on May 24. If your stay begins on May 22 or earlier, you can stay with the room discount through May 24. If, however, your stay begins on May 23, there is no discount. (Remember – two nights minimum stay.)
Wondering what, exactly, are the benefits of staying at the Disneyland hotels? Well first of all… the Disneyland hotels. 🙂 This offer is good on the Disneyland Hotel – I know, I sound like a broken record up in here – Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa, and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel. All three hotels are themed and packed with fun and luxury. In addition, by staying at a Disney hotel, you get Extra Magic Hour at a park each day, an exclusive entrance into the parks, Character Dining and wake-up calls, and a lot more.
Hope you get a chance to take advantage of this! If you do, tell me how it went!
