Disneyland Airports

Disneyland airports come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and since there are plenty of options, you can compare flights between them to come up with the best deal. Disneyland doesn't actually have its own airport, but if you are looking to land close by, you might start with the John Wayne Airport. Also known as the Orange County Airport, this closest airport to Disneyland is just fourteen miles away. A variety of major airlines offer service to this airport, and while it's not the largest in the region, there are good dining and shopping options. You should also find the ground transportation choices to be agreeable, and parking is available for those who need it.

The second closest airport to Disneyland is the Long Beach Airport, or Daugherty Field, as it is also known. You can find this smaller airport just 22 miles from the resort, and while it doesn't accept a ton of flights, it is worth keeping in mind. Connections are made to a number of large cities across the country, including New York City, Chicago, and Seattle. An attractive sit-down restaurant, a convenient café, and an inviting gift shop are among the facilities at the Long Beach Airport, and the ground transportation options include rental cars and shuttles, both of which can be used to get to get to Disneyland. If you prefer, you can also take a taxi.

As you might expect, many travelers who are interested in flying to the Disneyland region have the Los Angeles International Airport in mind. This large airport to the northeast of Disneyland is one of the top ten busiest airports in the world. As such, finding flights that arrive there is an easy pursuit. A healthy number of major airlines use it as a major hub. LAX, as the Los Angeles International Airport is commonly known, is only 32 miles from Disneyland, and as long as the traffic isn't bad, the commute by way of car can in theory take as little as 40 minutes. Be aware, though, that LA traffic is legendary and if you are arriving during peak rush hour, you may be on the freeways for hours. As far as what you can find at the airport itself, the facilities and ground transportation options are most complete.

If you can't find a flight that satisfies your needs for these three Disneyland airports, you might also consider the Ontario International Airport and the Bob Hope Airport. These airports can also be found within a relatively close distance and only serve to provide air travelers with more great options for places to land. You don't have to stop there, however. Flying into San Diego is also worth considering, especially if you are interested in enjoying some of the San Diego attractions before you venture north to Anaheim.

All of these airports offer Disneyland airport shuttles. In other words, you can leave the driving up to somebody else when it comes to making the commute. If you're not interested in a shared-ride shuttle, which is the cheapest option, you can try to book a private shuttle. In addition to hopping on one of the Disneyland airport shuttles, you can also rent your own car, take a taxi, or rely on limousine service. In any event, it is best that you arrange your ground transportation in advance, especially during the resort's busier periods.
