Visiting Disneyland is something many people look forward to all their lives. It's also expensive, as park tickets can easily run hundreds of dollars, especially when you add in food and merchandise.
Staying on-site at Disney can certainly add to those costs. Disney hotels tend to be pricier than counterparts, but also nicer, with elevated design and amenities that fully embrace the total Disney experience. Official hotels such as Disney's Grand Californian Hotel, or the Disneyland Hotel offer park access and perks other properties can't provide. For mega Disney fans, it can be well worth the splurge.
Of course, choosing an unaffiliated hotel offers a great way to save cash. If you are traveling on a budget and plan to spend more time in the parks than in the room, consider the major hotel chains, most of which have a presence within a two-mile radius of Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, as well as the Anaheim Convention Center, which is about a mile from the front gates of Disneyland.
Another important distinguishing factor is distance. While the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is located directly next to California Adventure (and boasts a private guest entrance), other hotels are far away. If you opt to stay off-site, make sure your hotel provides a shuttle or has an Anaheim Resort Transit shuttle (or ART as it is called) stop, which connects many hotels with the theme parks starting at $5 a day for hop-on, hop-off service.
Rates for Anaheim hotels vary widely, starting from $107 per night up to $435, with increased rates on weekends and high season. To distill the best value, we've put together the following list of the most convenient and highest-rated hotels in the area to fit every budget, based on personal experience, pricing, and reviews from sites such as Trip Advisor and Booking.com.
