During a recent visit to Disneyland, I stumbled onto a great money saving offer on my Hotel stay. The Hotel I normally stay at didn’t have any rooms available on one of the nights of my trip, due to a convention that was in town. So I was forced to check for rooms that were a little farther away. But this led to a great money saving discovery, that can save the Disneyland visitor up to 50% on their Hotel stay.

This special money saving offer is made possible by the folks at Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel, which is located next door from the Disneyland Resort. When you check in at the front desk, present your Disneyland Annual Passport and receive up to 50% off your room rate on select days. These select days are only available in the off peak season, but you can still receive up to a 20% discount just for presenting your Disneyland Annual Pass at check in.

Just think, you bought your Disneyland Annual Pass to save money on multiple visits to the Disneyland Resort. To save money on purchases throughout the Parks, and now you can save money off property too! The money you save on Hotel cost may actually cover the cost of your Annual Pass

Here is the current information, from the Howard Johnson about discounts available for stays during 2012

FOR DATES NOT LISTED ABOVE, YOUR Annual Pass  STILL DELIVERS A 20% DISCOUNT! :D____________________________________________________________________________________________
Due to the high demand of our “Retro Discount” we have implemented a non cancellation policy on these reservations to prevent “date squatting” by making multiple tentative reservations.

Retro Discount room reservations are charged at checkout.
RD reservations cancelled prior to the arrival date will be charged 1 night’s charge.
If you add or subtract nights from a reservation (changes) we will not charge a fee.
Mixed rate reservations will revert to the standard 48 hour cancellation policy
Additional RD days may be added as they become available.

The King and Queen Suite are exempt from the Full Discount Rate, but a 20% discount can be taken if your valid Disneyland Annual Pass is presented at check in!

The Retro Rate discount is subject to availability and may change without notice. There is a 2 room limit per AP.

If the dates that you are looking to stay with us are not listed, you are still entitled to a 20% discount off the best available rate for the room type you are booking. Just give our In-House Reservations a call at 714-776-6120! We’d love to help you book your stay with us!

We are also extending a new Disneyland Annual Pass holder (AP) discount in the Main St. Market! You just need to show your valid Disneyland AP to receive a 10% discount on their purchases (beer and wine excluded).

So be sure to check out Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel on S. Harbor Blvd in Anaheim for your next stay at the Disneyland Resort. The money you save may just pay for most of your Annual Passport. The rooms are clean, and nicely appointed. Here is the room we had.
And the Hotel grounds were beautiful and peaceful.

    My family and I booked our trip using a website called,, we were able to book a 4* hotel that was for 4 nights with 1 of the nights free so we only paid for 3 a night stay! It also included 3 adults and 1 child 3day park hopper ticket, free unlimited shuttle to and from Disneyland free parking at the hotel for a total of about 1,200, taxes included! and after we booked our vacation they actually sent us free wrist bands and lanyards to use while we are in the park. I highly recommend this website to anyone planning a DisneyLand vacation.

    Does anyone know if any of the other Good Neighbor Hotels offer this same sort of discount? THANKS

      Hi Pam
      At this time I don’t know of any other Good Neighbor that offers a simmilar discount. I’ll always keep doing research, to find as many great discounts as I can. I do know that with an Annual Pass, you can often get discounts at any of the Dineyand Resort Hotels, during the off season is the best. But if you plan on staying at the Parks for a few days, the money you save with this discount, may be enough to actually pay the cost of your Annual Pass. On my last vist I saved better than $200.00 on my room alone, that is better than half the cost of my Annual Pass, pretty cool! If anyone does learn of another money saving offer like this, please post it here, so everyone can learn.
