On September 9, D23: The Official Disney Fan Club announced that tickets for the 2022 D23 Expo will go on sale on January 20, 2022. The D23 Expo will begin on Friday, September 9, 2022, and end on Sunday, September 11, 2022. The D23 Expo was originally supposed to take place in 2021, but had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Not only did D23 announce ticket sale dates, but they also shared that Guests attending the Expo could save on stays at hotels close to Disneyland Resort as well as the three hotels that are on Disney property: Disneyland Hotel, Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, and Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. When D23 says that you can save, they mean it. Guests staying at any of the three Disneyland Resort hotels can save A LOT.
Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel is the most affordable of the three hotels on property, but prices can still average close to $400 per night depending on the season. However, D23 Expo Guests who book through the D23 website can pay under $300 per night for the nights of the Expo weekend. And the savings only increase from there.
D23 Expo attendees who stay at the Disneyland Hotel will only pay $376 per night — which can sound like a lot — but regular Disneyland Hotel Guests who are not attending the Expo will pay $540 per night for the same days — checking in on September 8 and checking out on September 11. Guests staying at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will save the most, only paying $496 per night if booking through the D23 site, as opposed to the $717 that regular Disneyland Guests could pay.
That is a ton of savings!
If you are attending D23 next September, but do not want to stay on Disneyland Resort property, there are a number of hotels off property that are also offering savings to D23 Expo attendees, including Desert Palms Hotel & Suites, Embassy Suites Anaheim, Four Points By Sheraton, and Hilton Anaheim, among a number of others.
Since tickets for the Expo have not yet gone on sale, proof of attending the event is not required when booking a hotel through the D23 website. However, we are unsure if this will change when tickets do go on sale, so make sure to only book through the D23 site if you actually plan on attending the event.
