Local Getaway – Great Deals at NEW Angel Of The Winds Casino Hotel

Angel of the Winds – Budget Friendly Option in Skagit Valley!

My husband had to work out of town for some time this year, and we were looking for a chance to getaway and reconnect now that he is back. With three kids still at home, we were looking for a local option that was not too far, and was affordable. So, when the opportunity presented itself to try out the new hotel at the Angel of the Winds Casino, we called in grandma to watch the kids and packed our bags.

We had a wonderful time, and scoped out tons of money saving opportunities for you too! If you’re looking for a couples getaway where you can relax, reconnect, but still have some things to do, then this is a great option.

The hotel has some great savings packages, and there are a number of great budget friendly food options. There also are quite a few free things to do throughout the area as well. A couple could do a great overnight getaway for under $200 including food, room and some entertainment. You could even do it for less if you really planned well!

Angel of the Winds Casino opened up in 2004. There was no hotel at that time, and the casino space was much smaller than it is today, but they adopted the mantra “Worlds Friendliest Casino” and the casino grew mostly from Word of Mouth as they lived up to that friendly reputation. Fast forward to today, and the expansion includes a brand new hotel, along with new casino space, and continued plans for growth. Since the hotel is new, and they want more folks to become aware of it, it is a great time to get a good deal. The hotel itself just opened this past December, so its all new and very cozy. The hotel is on one side (no smoking at all in that area) and the casino on the other side, so it can be a good budget friendly option even if you don’t game at all.

Hotel Savings Packages for Angel of the Winds:

Hotel Overview – 

The Angel of the Winds Casino and Hotel is new (opened in December) and the rooms are very nice. They offer a number of savings packages, and we found some really great values for the quality of room and stay.

Exploring Skagit Valley Area – Things To Do On A Budget

Skagit Valley Final

My husband and I recently enjoyed a weekend getaway at the Angel of the Winds Casino and Hotel. During our stay, we were fortunate enough to have a tour of the local area from John (hotel guru of the area). He shared with us some of his favorite spots. We had so much fun, we wanted to share some of these tips with you!

The La Conner area is a great stopping spot approximately half way between Seattle and Vancouver. You can check out the Visit Skagit Valley site for lots of details on the area, but here are some of our favorite tips for off the beaten path spots to stop! If you like weekend road trips (or day trips), and visiting small towns this is a great area to explore.

Tips for planning your trip to the Skagit Valley Area:

The trick to making this a budget friendly getaway, is to plan ahead. There are a number of free activities to enjoy, including great hiking spots, beautiful parks and more. There are also many festivals in the area that you can plan your trip around. You could do it as a day trip, and pack a picnic, and keep your costs close to a tank of gas. You could also make it a weekend trip, and find a budget friendly lodging option. A few ideas for this include: camping, finding a lodging deal on one of the deal sites, or the Angel of the Winds Casino and Hotel deals.

There are a number of festivals throughout the year, that are especially fun times to visit. Be sure to follow our festivals post here to stay on top of those!

Check out deal sites for the area before you leave, if you want to be prepared to save on restaurants or entertainment. A couple we are aware of, that are specific to this area, include:

  • Deal Savers (select Bellingham as your city)
  • KAPS Radios Country Store – this local radio station offers many discounts for things like local restaurants, the Childrens Museum & more!
  • Follow our weekly Getaways post to find deals for lodging in the San Juan area, and other lodging deals tht may pop up in this area of the state.

Knotts Berry Farm Discount Tickets – $38 (reg $68)! Close to Disneyland!

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

Knotts Berry Farm Discount Tickets

Knotts Berry Farm Discount Tickets – $38 for Adult Tickets (Reg $68)

If you’re headed down to Southern California, we’ve found discount tickets from Goldstar to Knott’s Berry Farm Amusement Park. I lived in southern California for a few years when I was a kid and this was a fun amusement park we visited a few times. If you’re headed down to Disneyland but want a break to try something new for a day & at a lower rate than paying for another day at Disney, this is a nice option of a different kind of theme park to take the family.  It’s only 10-15 minutes away from Disneyland too, if you’re staying close to Disney.

Ticket prices for adults are regularly $68, but with Goldstar’s discount tickets, they are just $38 + service fees, making them $41.25. Kids tickets are $35 at Knott’s Berry Farm & $33 but with a $2.50 service fee, so they are actually $.50 more with Goldstar. So, the best deal is definitely the adult tickets at almost 50% off.

More information about Knott’s Berry Farm::

There’s much to keep you and your family amused by land, water and air at Knott’s Berry Farm’s 160 acres of roller coasters, games, shopping, live entertainment, dining and children’s rides in Buena Park. Go head-over-heels and heels-over-head on the scream machine Boomerang. Bang into your buddies on the Wheeler Dealer Bumper Cars. Make a splash on Bigfoot Rapids. Take a spin on Wipeout — if you dare! In between turns on the Sierra Sidewinder and the hair-raising Montezooma’s Revenge, visit Camp Snoopy or Ghost Town for live singing, dancing, stunts and the Peanuts Gang. In the spring, celebrate Knott’s delicious roots at the Boysenberry Festival. (Walter Knott invented the cross between a loganberry, red raspberry and blackberry!) This fun food festival includes tasty Boysenberry Bites — like boysenberry BBQ sauce, ICEE floats and Frappuccinos, live entertainment and more farm-fresh fun for the whole family.

Disneyland Ticket Discounts

Disneyland Ticket Discounts!

Are you planning a trip to Disneyland? It is one of my families favorite destination spots, and we have been a number of times over the years. While Disneyland is never a cheap trip, there are some saving strategies I have learned over time that I wanted to share.

Check out our Disneyland Savings page for more tips on:

Now, lets look at how to get the best Disneyland Ticket deals, which could possibly be the biggest expense of your trip.

Generally speaking you save more when you buy your tickets separately, vs part of a vacation package, so its always a good idea to see what current Disneyland Ticket Discounts are available.

Another important point – You will want to be careful when purchasing discounts for Disneyland tickets, there are plenty of scams out there. In the past folks have bought tickets off of ebay and Craiglist, and we highly recommend you stay away from this practice (folks sold tickets that had only been partially used, for the remaining days). Disneyland has really cracked down on fraudulent ticket sales, and they will take your photo with hand held computers at the gates, and if someone else’s picture is attached to the ticket you will not be able to use it and will have lost that money. I would only buy tickets from a vendor you know is reputable.


DIsneyland Ticket Deals

Toon Town, always a good time!

Here are Disneyland Ticket Deals that we know are legitimate:

(We update the promotions weekly)

Cheap Tickets Disneyland Deals

  • Cheap Tickets is part of Orbitz, and they offer Disneyland Tickets discount too. You can find out what promotions are available through them on this page here.  Just put your dates of travel in up on the top right hand corner and select View Pricing, to see what offers are available for your dates of travel (see picture above). Guests of the Hotels of the Disneyland® Resort can take advantage of Extra Magic Hour each day of their stay at Disneyland® or Disney California Adventure® Park! If you aren’t staying at Disneyland® Resort, purchase a 4-Day Disneyland® Resort Park Hopper® Ticket for just $69 per person per day and receive one free Magic Morning early entry admission per ticket! Just put your dates of travel in up on the top right hand corner and select View Pricing to see what offers are available for your dates of travel.  We bought a four day pass for the price of a three day pass on a similar site.  I was buying 5 tickets, so this saved us quite a bit!  

This is where we bought our tickets for our last trip, and it was by far the best deal I could find at the time. It worked out great for our trip!

  • Get Away Today offers great savings on Disneyland part tickets PLUS entire vacation packages!, and they are a legitimate site to purchase from.

Here are some of the discounts available:

Extra Day Free on 4-Day Disneyland® Resort tickets.  Book your travel for before December 31, 2015.

If you are traveling specific dates, you will find offers for Adults at Kids prices (savings of $11 per ticket over gate prices)!

  • Orbitz is currently running a promotion where you can get one day FREE on 3 & 4 day park hopper tickets!  You must book by May 21, 2015 and travel by June 16, 2015.  A 4-day park hopper ticket will cost you $400 per ticket online from Disneyland, so its a nice savings.
  • Park Savers offers discounts of up to $16 off per Park Hopper ticket and $9 off park tickets.  These guys have great offers currently, and they are good through December 31, 2015 so its a good spot to stop for discount ticket options first.  Right now if you purchase 5-Day Park Hopper® Bonus Tickets with Magic Mornings you will get your 5th day for FREE!  2-day minimum advanced purchase is required.

Buy at your Grocery Store during rewards offers – this is a great way to save significantly on your tickets if you plan ahead and purchase during a rewards offer at one of your local grocery stores. Another thing about grocery stores, is that they are not required to dispose of their Disney Tickets if the price increases. This means they will continue to sell the lower priced tickets until they are gone (I found some at last years prices at one of my local Safeway stores this Feb.).

     Some examples of ways to save at recent offerings at NW grocers include:

Safeway runs a get 4x the gas rewards on gift card purchases from time to time. They sell Disneyland tickets in their gift card section. For my family of 5 a 3 day park hopper ticket would have earned us 5000 in gas rewards – or 5 $1 off discounts. Since I can use them for up to $25 per fill up that means that this offer would have saved me $125 in gas that month (and so I consider that a $125 savings on the tickets!).

Fred Meyer (Kroger Stores) pays you on your rewards points

Albertsons runs promos from time to time where you will get a certain Dollar amount off your next grocery store purchase with gift card purchases.

Target offers 5% off if you use your Target Red card to purchase Disney Gift Cards/Tickets

If Disney is offering a ticket deal that you can buy at the ticket gate during your visit, then consider buying the Disney Gift cards during one the promo offers mentioned above, and you can *double dip* on the deals. You will get the savings for buying the Disneyland gift cards, and then you can also use those cards like cash at Disneyland to take advantage of the ticket offer you found through Disneyland.

  • City Pass for Southern California – If you are planning to do more then just Disneyland on your trip. the CityPass for Southern California is a nice option. The CityPass gives you back-and-forth admission to both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure for any three days during the 14 consecutive day period the pass is valid.  It includes on Magic Morning admission which lets you in one hour before regular opening time but it must be used on a Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday.  You can also upgrade the Disneyland portion of this pass if you want to spend more days at Disneyland. You will just want to make sure you do it before you use up day 3 on the pass, and you will have to do it onsite at Disneyland.
  • Costco – Sometimes Costco will offer a Costco Gift Card with purchase of a Disneyland Hotel ticket. These are getting harder to find, but are great offers if you come across one!
  • Military Discount – Those who are active or retired military members can save quite a bit on tickets (get 3- day park hopper tickets for as low as $132!) through the Salute discount running through Disney right now. Purchase through October 1, 2015.  Valid for admission through October 3, 2015, excluding blackout dates.  There are some restrictions, so be sure to read all the details here.
  • AAA offers a discount on your tickets + AAA/CAA Members also receive FREE parking at the Disneyland® Resort Theme Parks with a multi-day Disneyland® Resort Ticket. If you plan to drive and park at Disneyland, this might be a nice option as free parking can save you an extra $16 per day! You will need to be a member and sign in to get this offer.
  • Mouse Savers also has a list of discount Disneyland tickets if one of the above offers does not fit your needs

Cars Land at night – so pretty!

Things to Consider When Buying Disneyland Tickets:

Park Hopper vs non-Park Hopper Tickets – No park hopper tickets can save you up to $30, so they are definitely a cheaper option. For the Disneyland park though, I always opt for the Park Hopper tickets. They are just more convenient. Unlike Disney World, the Disneyland and California Adventure Park are right across from each other, and its nice to have the option to go back and forth. Especially if you are staying in one of the Disneyland hotels and want to use the special entrance into the California Park (start there and work your way over to Disneyland). It is also nice, when one park opens earlier or closes later – to maximize time in the parks for the full day.

How Many Days to Visit – One tip that not everyone realizes is that you can upgrade your ticket at Disneyland. For example, if you buy a 2 day ticket and decide to visit three days, as long as you have one day left on your tickets you can upgrade to more days. So, when in doubt buy the lesser number of days and if you decide to visit the park an extra day or two you can upgrade your tickets onsite.

That being said, we always prefer a 3-4 day hopper ticket with young kids. This allows us one day to explore each park at our own leisure, a third day to finish off the rides we might have missed the first two days and if we do day 4 we use that as an opportunity to jump in and out of the park, and do a second round of rides on our favorites, etc. We enjoy a pool break daily, and like to take our time working our way through the parks and not feel pressured to do everything right away, which is the main reason we prefer this length. You could do both parks in two days though, if you like a more aggressive schedule and less time out of the park. 5 days would be too much for my crew – by day 4 we don’t even spend that full day in the park.

There is also plenty to do for a full day out of the park, in the Disneyland area – so we generally plan one days stay where we don’t have park entrance. Downtown Disney has Build A Bear, Studio 365 for make-overs, ESPN Zone for fun, and much more. Pool time is also fun, and there are plenty of day trip opportunities in the immediate area.

Early Entrance – Multi-Day park hopper tickets will provide you one day of early entrance into one of the parks. If you stay at a Disneyland hotel you will get early entrance for each day you visit the park. This early entrance opportunity is a wonderful opportunity to get on the more popular rides like Cars, without extreme wait times!

One last tip. Some of the ticket deals above provide you a voucher that you have to turn in to redeem your actual tickets for. Many of the hotels will allow you to pick your tickets up at check -in. All of the Disneyland Hotels do. If your hotel offers this service, it can save you time as you will be able to avoid the ticket lines in the park (and they can be long)!

It was a fantastic room for that price (and her teen loved having his own space).

Sia and her family stayed at The Annabella Hotel with a deal she got online like this one two years ago (only this deal is actually much better), and they really enjoyed their stay. If you are not staying in a Disneyland hotel, it was one of her favorites. Its sits back behind the California Lodge hotel, and so you can walk to the Disney Parks by cutting through the California Lodge. Its about a 5 minute walk, and can be tiring with little ones, but doable (its only a couple blocks, but Disney blocks are long). They walked every day with their kids (ages 4-15 at the time). It has its own Happy Hour that is family friendly, and has some great prices in their restaurant (you can sit out on the patio and enjoy these deals!), making food more affordable. There is also a family style restaurant and ice cream shop right next to the hotel for late night treat cravings. She loved the old Spanish Mission style, and its not huge so easy to navigate. They had a room that had two rooms, so her teen could have his own space too! They ate breakfast there, and enjoyed it as well.
