Check out this page for  major Disneyland Resort hotel discounts.

Newspaper Ad Rates

The Disneyland hotels occasionally advertise special rates in both the LA Times and the San Diego Union-Tribune, and these rates are generally available to anyone who asks (i.e. not just local residents). Ask for the “LA Times Rate” or the “San Diego Union-Tribune Rate.” Worth a try!

Disney’s Visa

Occasionally Disney’s Visa cardholders will be offered special rates at the Disneyland hotels. Generally the same offers are made available to the general public (non-cardholders) about 3-7 days later. When offered, we list the Disney’s Visa card offers below.

AAA (American Automobile Association)

Note: There are, as of now, no AAA/CAA discounts available for 2015 resort stays at Disneyland. The information below is valid through the end of 2014.

Note that booking through AAA will not usually get you the same great room rates as calling Disneyland Resort Reservations directly and asking for AAA rates. That’s because AAA travel agents are geared toward selling vacation packages, not “room only” reservations.

Military Discounts

Active and retired military personnel can receive discounts of up to 40% off select rooms at Disneyland Resort hotels. This offer is valid for stays most nights now through 10/3/15.

The number of rooms allocated for this offer is limited. Some dates are not included (blocked out) for this offer and will price at full rack rate: those dates include 11/27/14-11/29/14, 12/24/14-12/31/14 and 3/30/15-4/4/15.

Valid for active or retired members of the US military, including the National Guard, Reservists and the US Coast Guard. Valid Military ID will be required upon check-in and military member (or spouse) must stay in room. Minimum length of stay requirements may apply. No group rates or other discounts apply. Limit two rooms per reservation and five people maximum per room. Advance reservations required. Subject to restrictions and change without notice.

Annual Passholder Rates

Annual Passholders may qualify for discounted rates — call and ask for “Annual Passholder Rates.” The general discount is 10% off rack rates, and sometimes there are specials that are more deeply discounted (see below for any current specials).

Discounts are not always available, particularly during peak periods (all holidays, summer). Rates are usually lowest on Sunday-Thursday nights. The very lowest rates are typically offered at the last minute: about 1-3 months in advance. Limit 2 rooms per person at discounted rate.

Be sure to check Orbitz and/or CheapTickets first, because they will sometimes offer rates even lower than Annual Passholder rates.

Online Annual Passholder Rates

Disneyland Annual Passholders can get special online rates on select dates, running about 3 months in advance. Hotel guest must be a valid Annual Passholder at the time of stay and valid Annual Passport must be presented at check-in.

  • To book these Annual Passholder rates, you must log in to the Disneyland Annual Passholder site. If the link does not take you directly to the right area, click on Special Offers and select Hotel Rates for Annual Passholders.

CheapTickets/Orbitz Special Offers

CheapTickets and Orbitz are really the same company, but they don’t always offer exactly the same deals. They usually charge full “rack rate” for the Disneyland hotels (Paradise Pier, Disneyland Hotel or Grand Californian), but they also often offer coupon codes that take a percentage off the rate. When there are no other deals around, this can be one of the only ways to get some kind of discount on your Disneyland resort hotel room. And when seasonal discounted room rates are offered to the general public, often the discount codes can be applied on top of Disney’s promotional discount!

For both sites, to find the official Disneyland hotels, search Anaheim – Disneyland and 4 star or higher hotels.

  • Book through Orbitz and get 15% off at Paradise Pier, Disneyland Hotel or Grand Californian for stays through 3/31/15. Orbitz’s base room rates are generally the same as Disney’s rates (including seasonal discounts), and those rates can be further discounted with this special code. To find the official Disneyland hotels, search Anaheim – Disneyland and 4 star or higher hotels. Be sure to type code REVIEW15 into the form under “I have a promotion code.” Expiration is given as 12/31/14, but Orbitz codes often work for a few days beyond their official expiration.
  • Book through CheapTickets and get 5% off at Paradise Pier, Disneyland Hotel or Grand Californian for stays through 3/31/15. CheapTickets’s base room rates are generally the same as Disney’s rates (including seasonal discounts), and those rates can be further discounted with this special code. To find the official Disneyland hotels, search Anaheim – Disneyland and 4 star or higher hotels. Be sure to type code CTXHOTEL5 into the form under “I have a promotion code.” Expiration is given as 12/31/14, but CheapTickets codes often work for a few days beyond their official expiration.
  • Orbitz Rewards: Orbitz has a rewards program that rebates back 1%-5% of your booking amount in the form of “Orbucks” that can be used for future bookings. If you’re not already a member of the Orbitz Rewards program, you get a $25 promo code when you join using this link: Click here to sign up for Orbitz Rewards.

Canadian Discounts

Very occasionally a special discount only for Canadians will be released, but this is rare.

You can visit Disney.ca and click on the Special Offers tab to see any current deals specific to Canadians, but 99% of the time the offers are the same as those distributed in the US. Sometimes the Canadian offer will have a different discount code, but otherwise it will be identical to the US offer.

Canadians can book the US offers as well.
