I'm coming back to Disneyland in October, staying at the HOJO. However, I decided I wanted to come for a few more days (was originally staying the 17th-23rd) beforehand. They had availability for the 15th/16th, but not the 13th/14th (weird being sold out in the middle of the week).
So I decided that might be the perfect opportunity to try out the Grand Californian for a couple of nights to see if it's worth it. The first place I looked was on expedia.ca (being canadian) and I found they had listed the standard view room for $227 CAD. Then I remembered that the Grand Californian offered an AP discount (I'll be getting one when I go back... even 2 trips from Canada make it worthwhile), so I decided to give them a call. After speaking with the reservations rep though, she informed me that with a *30%* discount (which I thought was awesome when she said it) that a standard view room would be..... $228 US......... excuse me? How is it that I can get the exact same price on a random travel website as a supposed 30% discount from the hotel itself? Has anyone else had this issue? Am I doing something wrong?
Any helpful advice would be greatly appreciated! I really want to try it out but it just seems wrong that their "AP discount" is the same as expedia.
