Does anyone know if you can slowly pay off a room with the "good neighbor" hotels like you can with the Disneyland Resort hotels?

That's what were planning to do this year. I'm pretty sure you can give payments until a month before your arrival. - ingridd  15.5 #8417 1:07PM
How exactly does that work for the DL Hotel?? - wicked50  102.2 #3563 1:10PM
If your making a reservation for the DL hotel then you simply ask them if you can pay your reservation package through payments. A deposit is 200 I believe. Then you can simply pay the rest. - ingridd  15.5 #8417 1:14PM
@wicked50 you book a hotel room on the Disneyland website and they have you pay the first night up front. The rest you make payments when you can as long as you have the whole thing paid a month before your stay. - CherryTreeLane  460.4 #472 1:14PM
Thanks ingridd. - CherryTreeLane  460.4 #472 1:16PM
You are welcome. What hotel are you planning to stay in? We still can't decide. The DL hotel is too expensive this year. - ingridd  15.5 #8417 1:19PM
Omg I know what im doing for my birthday next year. wow thanks for the info - dopeyluvr215  152.8 #2672 1:20PM
Reason #237 why I'm loving MW, I never knew this. Thanks for the info. - PopcornYeti  378.6 #594 1:22PM
are you serious?? I had no idea you could make payments, So even if I plan to stay at the DL hotel next August I could do that?? - iyuzMickey  515.9 #406 1:23PM
Not sure yet. I've been reading posts about other people asking for advice on hotels near the parks but haven't actually looked myself. We're planning a visit in Oct. - CherryTreeLane  460.4 #472 1:23PM
Thank you for the great info. It is very helpful!! - wicked50  102.2 #3563 1:23PM
Yes. We payed off our stay at the DL hotel last Aug. Through payments. Plus you can do the same even if there is a special offer. You have to pay off your package a month before your arrival in order for them to send you your package. It's handy if you call to make a reservation instead of booking it online. Usuallyy same prices. Now if anyone knows of good nearby hotels let me know. Oh I called to ask if the DL hotel had any special offers this summer but sadly they don't. - ingridd  15.5 #8417 1:27PM
@lyuzmickey27 I'm not sure how far out in advance you can book. My husband said he saw up to a year? Can anyone confirm that or correct me? - CherryTreeLane  460.4 #472 1:28PM
Here's a quick tip. It's better to wait for a special offer and pay your reservation through payments rather then start a reservation a year early because you will save a couple hundred. - ingridd  15.5 #8417 1:34PM
Good tip ingridd. Do you have a few hotels in mind? I know you said you're not sure yet which one. - CherryTreeLane  460.4 #472 1:38PM
Well we were thinking the Fairfield inn but there's alot of mixed reviews so I'm not sure. I want to stay at one that doesn't require transportation. Nor one that's longer than a 20 minute walk. I don't know! Haha. - ingridd  15.5 #8417 1:41PM
A few of my friends stay at the Tropicana, it's right across the street. Not sure of the price. I have seen several others mentioned on hear that I'm going to. - CherryTreeLane  460.4 #472 1:49PM
I'll have to check that one out. Thanks! - ingridd  15.5 #8417 1:50PM
Uggg, forgot to say research. - CherryTreeLane  460.4 #472 1:51PM
Haha. Do you know if it's a nice hotel? - ingridd  15.5 #8417 1:53PM
My friends have told me it's decent. - CherryTreeLane  460.4 #472 1:58PM
I have stayed at the Tropicana, it was decent, great access to DL this last March we stayed down the road at the Howard Johnson, the hotel and rooms were nice but the extra walk after walking all day at both parks about killed our feet off at night. - iyuzMickey  515.9 #406 1:58PM
Full disclosure: I work at the Howard johnsons and I think it's a great hotel. Most of the complaints we get are from the noise so just get the premium rooms. You can see the matterhorn and the fireworks from them :) - djbreakdown  573.2 #353 1:59PM
As long as you book your trip threw an agency like AAA. I know you can we have done it twice now - cowboygoofy  219.0 #1742 2:00PM
Are the prices good? - ingridd  15.5 #8417 2:01PM
Wow.... Thanks for the tip!!! =) - SJCSharkie  315.5 #822 2:09PM
The prices at both the hotels I stayed at were reasonable, @djbreakdown I didn't hear any noise when we stayed there, all in all, I prefer the HJ over the Tropicana (cleaner/newer rooms) but my feet preferred the Tropicana as far as walking distance from the park. LOL, next trip I am looking at staying at the DL hotel, that has been my dream! :0) - iyuzMickey  515.9 #406 2:18PM
I'm soo sad were not staying at the DL this year. Maybe next year. It's like you never leave Disneyland. Last year was by far my fav trip. - ingridd  15.5 #8417 2:29PM
@lyuzmickey: I agree with you. That walk is pretty far especially at night :) glad your stay was good though:) - djbreakdown  573.2 #353 4:29PM
Thank u so much! I had no idea about this! - ashy_mouse_leyyyy  163.9 #2510 4:33PM
Pretty sure the HoJo gives AP discounts as well. - underthesea822  86.1 #3817 4:36PM
