Unfortunately I won't know until after the Walk if we are going, for sure. Things could change up until right before.

I don't know your exact dates, but you can get an extra 20% off your room rate if you use the discount from Geicoprivileges, which is free for anyone to join.

For the Super8 on Ball the rate comes down to $47.20 per night for certain dates.

ETA: Regarding cheap eats, unless you can get free giftcards or something, nothing will be as cheap as buying food from the supermarket and eating at your hotel. Even if you can't cook in your room you can buy a supermarket rotisserie chicken, some potato salad/cole slaw and rolls and have leftovers for WAY under $20.

That's great that they did that! I ended up just putting my state where I live (AZ) and then I picked my favorite restaurant as Naples (downtown disney) even though I've never eaten there. lol It worked out though because the cert they sent was for all the California restaurants.

There are other kinds of skewers, but I love the chicken ones so much, I never have tried the others!
We get several of these and split them between us (two adults, 2 school aged kids). I would make sure you bring a refillable water bottle. Drinks can suck the life out of your budget.

I can't reiterate this enough! We were down recently and it was over a 100degrees and luckily we brought plenty of gatorade and bottled water from Vons ( delivered ) so very rarely bought water or drinks in the Park ... saved the money for frozen treats and such.

We also LOVE Bengal BBQ and buy the skewers, a cheese filled pretzel and a pickle to share. Love those pickles~
