Ways to save Disneyland CA → Ideas please

I live in Southern CA and my husband and I were married at Disney 10 years ago.

This year for our anniversary we wanted to take the 3 kids to Disney for a one night mini vacation. We would love to stay at the new Grand Californian.

Anyway Disney prices are insane and we have been trying to find a way to get a good deal.

Anyone have good ways to save on tickets or the hotel ?

We are no longer in the military and they do not offer firefighter discounts. We don't have AAA either.

  • I would not stay at that hotel. The rooms are small, although they do have some with bunk beds. I'd stay at 1 of the other hotels (there are 2) on the property. The rates for those hotels are cheaper and the rooms are a little bit bigger. Each hotel is equally convenient to the park. The meals, snacks and drinks are very pricey-

  • IDK about saving, but that hotel was awesome! We stayed there with our 2 kids a few years ago and loved it. You'll have so much fun. It was great to walk right out into the park.

  • I'd stay at the Disneyland Hotel. That hotel is VERY NICE, and cheaper than the Grand Californian. We booked our vacation package online last year. We got 5 nights for the price of 3, and a 5 day park hopper pass. We also got two character meals. We paid $1500 total for all of it. To me it wasn't bad.
