Half of Southern California travelers plan to visit at least one theme park this year, according to a recent poll by the Automobile Club of Southern California. If Disneyland is the destination, here's a hotel deal from Red Lion Hotel Anaheim with some nice freebies and a nice price: $79 a night.
The deal: This offer would work well for families with young children who don't want to worry about driving back and forth to the park. The hotel is a block or so from Disneyland, and a resort shuttle stops at the front door.
The Join the Magic offer also comes with free breakfast, free parking and free Wi-Fi. Prepayment is not required, and there is no cancellation penalty with this deal. Use the promotion code "Magic" when making a reservation.
When: The offer is good until June 1 for stays through June 7.
Tested: I found availability May 14-16 for a room with two queen-sized beds for two adults and two children for $79 plus tax. The free breakfast is good for two adults, and children 10 and younger eat free. As a comparison, the flexible rate for the same room on the same nights would cost $139 a night -- and that's without parking and breakfast costs.
