Cheap Rooms for Rent in Anaheim, CA
Are you planning a trip to Disneyland in California? If you’ve never flown before or are unfamiliar with the area, flying to Los Angeles can be intimidating. Many airports, heavy traffic, and more expensive ground transportation options are all factors to consider while planning a trip.
But don’t worry! The following information will help you plan your trip to Disneyland’s airports and departures much more efficiently. Cheap rooms Anaheim is true love when you set foot on the plane!
If you’ve never been to Los Angeles before, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the area’s geography. There are a lot of airports in Southern California. In addition, the city of Los Angeles has notoriously horrible traffic. As a result, if you don’t pick your airport carefully you may find yourself stranded on the road instead of inline for Space Mountain.
When flying to Disneyland, here are some of the most popular airports:
Santa Ana’s John Wayne Airport, which serves Orange County and the greater Los Angeles area, is my personal favorite for flights to and from Disneyland. In most cases, you’ll be able to get from the airport to your hotel in less than 20 minutes.
SNA is a tiny airport, which means that the queues are manageable and the walking distances are low. If I’m not out the door and checking into my hotel in less than 5-10 minutes due to baggage hold-ups, it’s because I’m a fast traveler.
Many airlines fly John Wayne, although Southwest, United, Alaska, and Delta are among the most common. Allegiant, American, Frontier, JSX, Spirit, Sun Country, and WestJet also fly out of SNA.
Second, on the list is the Long Beach International Airport. Although LGB is closer to Disneyland than SNA, it normally takes a little longer to get there because of the additional driving time. The freeway route is less convenient, and the roads may be busier at certain times of the day. Compared to SNA, LGB is even smaller and easier to navigate. Short TSA lineups and fast bag processing are expected.
Last year, JetBlue announced that it would no longer operate out of Long Beach (see tips for flying JetBlue with kids). Southwest was able to get several of the new flights and has since increased its existing schedule. The following airlines have hubs at Long Beach International Airport: Hawaiian, Delta, and American Airlines, to name a few.
Because Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is America’s busiest airport, you can expect to find the widest range of flights from the most popular destinations. Because of the increased airline competition brought on by the city’s larger size, airfares may be less expensive. If you’re traveling with a big group, the cost savings from flying together might really pile up.
There is a lot of space at LAX, yet it may be exceedingly inefficient at times. Allow extra time for security and check-in procedures, and prepare for a more difficult trip in general. The distance from the airport to your hotel is roughly 33 miles, so allow for an hour’s travel time, though it may be quicker if you are flying during a period of low traffic. Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is home to nearly every significant airline on the globe.
Although LA’s Ontario airport is only 35 miles away, it takes longer to get there due to the city’s notorious traffic. Like SNA and LGB, Ontario is smaller and easier to browse. However, due to the distance and lack of ground transportation choices, I do not recommend it for trips to Disneyland unless the costs are significantly lower than the alternatives.
At 41 miles, Burbank’s Airport (previously Bob Hope Airport) is the farthest away. Because of traffic, it can take up to an hour to get to Disneyland. For the same reasons as ONT – because of the distance and ground transit – I’d consider using it.
Burbank, on the other hand, would make sense if you’re planning a trip to both Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood at the same time. Nearby attractions include Universal Studios Florida. Long Beach and Ontario have a small airport that is easy to go around, just like John Wayne did.
Is San Diego really so bad? Yes! This airport isn’t the best option for a quick trip to Disneyland, but it’s a good option for anyone planning a longer stay in Southern California. If you’re planning a trip to Carlsbad (north of San Diego) to visit Legoland California, keep SAN in mind.
To get to Disneyland from the major airports in southern California, there are a number of transportation alternatives available. The following is a list of my preferred modes of transportation.
Our preferred method of transportation to and from John Wayne Airport (SNA) to our hotel in Disneyland is via the Uber mobile app. Uber is a smartphone app that allows you to hail a cab from the convenience of your own home or office.
For your first journey, you’ll receive a $15 credit thanks to a special code I’ve sent you.
Use the code “gavind714ue” in the app or right here to get your freebies!
The free $15 credit is located under the “promotions” page.
You can choose from a variety of various tiers of Uber cars when you arrive at Disneyland. Each service level’s nearby cars are displayed on the app’s home screen. Levels have their advantages and disadvantages, as well as pricing differences.
- UberX is the cheapest choice, and it can carry up to four people. These are the people who download the app and then use their own vehicle to drive about.
- UberXL – this option is for larger groups, as it accommodates up to six people. Additionally, these motorists drive their own (bigger) vehicles.
- UberBlack – luxury sedans that can fit up to four persons are included in this category. Typically, a limo/hired car service employs a luxury fleet, which includes these drivers and vehicles. However, you don’t need to employ this level of service if you’re flying into Orange County because these cars have a special license. They’re ahead of the curve and will accept pickups from any nearby Uber vehicle.
Before you go on your journey, make sure you’ve downloaded the app. Expect to wait no more than 10-15 minutes for baggage claim at the Orange County International Airport, which is normally quick.
To save $15, download the app and enter the promo code “gavind714ue.”
The cost of a taxi ride to or from an airport can be prohibitive, yet it is available at all of them. A taxi is a great option if you’re traveling with a large group. You can choose a four-passenger saloon cab or a seven-passenger minivan taxi. Both sizes are priced the same. In comparison to Uber, renting a van here is a significantly better price.
Children under the age of eighteen or under the height of four-and-a-half-and-a-half are required to ride in a car seat in California. If you plan to use a taxi, bring your own car seat.
Taking a cab from John Wayne/Orange County to LAX would cost you roughly $40 bucks, or about $100 with traffic and $80 without. To get from the resort, most firms will charge a set cost.
A “concierge deal” for airport taxis may be available via your Anaheim hotel, so be sure to inquire. These discounts on transportation are available at the hotels we recommend near Disneyland.
Unless you plan on visiting other attractions in the Los Angeles area, there is no reason to rent a car to go to Disneyland. Car rental firms can be found in abundance at each airport, should you decide to make use of this service.
Check with your Anaheim hotel to see if they offer a “concierge deal” for airport shuttle rides. Many of the hotels in our list of the best places to stay near Disneyland provide transportation savings to and from the park. You can also rent cheap rooms Anaheim to save money, but they do not include door-to-door transfers.
