Disneyland theme parks latest to hop on 'free nights' bandwagon

March 25, 2009, 12:04 PM · The Disneyland Resort, in Anaheim, California, announced today that it is offering a 'buy three nights, get two nights free' package to visitors who book hotel stays and theme park tickets for the Disneyland theme parks.

Walt Disney World, in Florida, has been offering a 'buy four nights, get three nights free' deal for its theme parks and hotels.

Visitors who book a three-night trip on Disneyland's website before August 11 (with arrival by Sept. 26) will get the extra two nights added to their stay. Visitors can book either one of the three official Disneyland hotels, or one of the 'Good Neighbor' affiliated non-Disney hotels (though they must arrived after May 1 for those hotels).

What about the free birthday deal, you might ask? If you visit using this package during your birthday, you can get one of three options in lieu of the free birthday ticket:

  • A stack of FastPasses for up to six people on selected attractions.
  • A gift card equal to the price of a one-day/one-park ticket, to be used inside the park for selected merchandise, photos and tours.
  • A free one-day/one-park ticket, for your use within the next 12 months.

    In other news from Disneyland, the park is preparing to debut its new "Celebrate! A Street Party" parade. Brady MacDonald has a preview.
