OK. So I'm planning on visiting Disneyland before the end of the year, probably October 12-19. I don't think I'll be going back before Ocotber 2008, but I am considering an annual pass (deluxe) because of the reductions. Now what should I do concerning the hotel? 1) Book Howard Johnson on their site with an annual pass discount, buy the annual pass the day of arrival. $804.48 + $239 deluxe annual pass. 2) Book a Howard Johnson package on the Disney site. $1016 no ART included. Upgrade the park tickets into an annual pass. How much will I have to pay extra? 3) Book Motel 6 on their site. $338.93 not including tax (which is $50.84?) + $239 deluxe annual pass. 4) Book a Motel 6 package on the Disney site. $716, ART is included. Upgrade the park tickets into an annual pass. How much will I have to pay extra? Is there any advantage in booking a package besides the character phone call and the Toontown Morning Madness which both don't appeal much to me? My limit is about $100 per night for the room. I just need a hotel withing walking distance of the parks which has clean rooms, friendly staff and a laundry room. I've previously stayed at the Alamo Inn and suites (we walked every day through Downtown Disney to the parks and that distance is manageable for me), which was ok, but I'd like a hotel that's a bit more pleasant this time. Breakfast or pool or anything like that is not necessary. I hope you can help me out, because there are so many to choose from, but they all have bad reviews on trip advisor too. The reason why I might choose Hojo's is that almost everybody is so happy about this hotel, but I was hoping for a cheaper one.
