Disneyland Resort Summer "room only" discounts?

Trying to plan a DLR trip with my wife for July, noticed WDW just released summer discounts, anyone know when DLR usually does or will? Staying at DLH is a must for us! Thanks for any help!

Welcome to the boards..I could be anytime or never..with Carsland, I would say no...but I could be all wet. I got 30% off on our GCH room a couple of weeks ago.

I'm just guessing. The Summer offer should come out in a week or two, and promote long stays. So maybe only deals for 4 or 5 night stays, could be for hotel only or packages.

How did you get 30% off, Jack? You're going in August right?

I'm waiting for hotel discounts too!

Sorry, I should have explained, we are going with a senior and it is a 30% discount on rooms but not suites.

Jack do you know do they always give 30percent off for seniors? I'm hoping to go again with my 90 year old mother this summer.

I really hope so, I want to do 4 or 5 nights this summer and would really like an offer to cut the cost down.

Don't mean to thread-jack, but is mid/early April the usual time frame for summer offers (Except the early summer offers out now)?

Yep, the senior discount of 30% is always available. Have fun! BTW, your Mom is awesome. Mine is 90 also. She's quite active for her age, but I'm not sure she could handle DLR any more. Kudos to your Mom!

What they did last year was the Summer promotion was announced Memorial Day weekend and was for dates from around June 19th - Mid August. Then around July 26th they came out with the late Summer offer which was was from mid-august into September.

I am hoping they have some promotions this Summer, but think Skiing is probably right in that if they do, they will likely be for extended stays. That would be fine with me..........great excuse to stay a few more days!!

I totally agree!! I like to preplan and waiting is tough!! I'll keep my fingers crossed for both of us, as our family is planning a Summer trip as well!

If we reserve a room only at the DLH now and a special comes out later can we change it?

Actually, you can, as long as it's more than 5 days before you arrive. The wording on the special offers makes it seem like you can't modify existing reservations, but any CM at WDTC will tell you otherwise. On a room only, you could even make the special offer ressie and cancel the room only with no penalties (if more than 5 days out). I always thought this was the case, but I called yesterday and the CM said yes, you can make whatever changes you want to a room only ressie if specials come out that affect the price. He said it not only applies to special offers, but AP discounts and pin codes as well.

I actually plan to do this myself as I am booking a trip for October on site, but I am almost positive some sort of special will come out that is better than my current AP discount on the ressie.

On a package however, you can not modify to make the price lower, only higher, that is my previous experience with them. I am strictly speaking for room only reservations.
