Knott's Berry Farm's Easy Pay Program is, in essence, a layaway program for stays at the Knott's Berry Farm Hotel, in that you must complete your four payments before the beginning of your hotel stay. Given that many hotel stays are not paid in advance, one could just set aside a certain amount of money each month before a trip, and get the same result. But Knott's plan might help the theme park ensure that would-be visitors don't change their mind and decide to spend their "saved" money on something else. (Knott's FAQ promises "no cancellation fees" on reservations cancelled more than 72 hours before arrival.)
Have you seen an advance payment or layaway program like this for hotels before? Would you consider using it?
Update: From the comments, it appears that Cedar Point (Knott's sister park) is offering the same deal at its hotels.
