Disneyland flights will usually take you into Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) if you are coming from any considerable distance away. If you are coming from a foreign country, this is undoubtedly where you will first land. This is also true if you are coming from the East Coast of the United States. Numerous Disneyland flight and hotel packages are offered into this facility, both by DIsneyland hotels themselves as well as many different travel agents and tour operators around the world. Check into the booking tool right on this page to help you find great deals on hotels, vacation packages, flights, and more.
LAX is one of the busiest airports in the world. It is located a bit south of Los Angeles city center, and the freeways that lead to Disneyland Park (I-405, I-105, and I-5) have some of the heaviest traffic in the metropolitan area. It is possible to catch Disneyland flights into one of the other airports in the area in order to avoid this traffic. Even flying into San Diego can possibly save on commuting time. It is only a couple driving hours away; it is possible to spend up to four hours in traffic getting from LAX to Anaheim during the peak commuting hours.
You can look for Disneyland flight and hotel packages that fly into San Diego or into a few other southern California airports. These include Burbank Bob Hope International Airport, the Ontario International Airport (near the resort area of Palm Springs), the Palm Springs Airport itself, John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, and Long Beach Airport (the closest major facility to Anaheim). Some operators will offer flight and hotel packages that stay in more than one place, including a night or two at Disneyland, so you can build an entire southern California vacation.
Disneyland flight and hotel packages that stay in one of the Disney resorts are available only from the Disney Vacation Club. However, these are marketed through an extensive network of national and international travel agents and tours operators, so you can purchase them from just about anywhere in the world. The resort hotels include the Grand Californian Hotel located in the California Adventure Park, the Disneyland Hotel, and Paradise Pier Hotel in the Downtown Disney District. Guests have complimentary access to all the hotel facilities, including the fitness center and recreational facilities. These properties located only steps away from the theme parks are understandably more expensive. Disney also offers vacation packages staying at less expensive hotels in the surrounding Anaheim area, which are still very close.
When you combine your Disneyland flights with various packages, park admission tickets are invariably included. The tickets usually include same-day admission to both Disneyland and the California Adventure Park, as well as theme park tickets for various rides and attractions. Other features might also include a Magic Morning early admission, providing an opportunity to interact with the iconic princesses and characters before the general public is allowed in and preferred seating at many of the California Adventure Park shows. There are various other promotions offered throughout the year, including extra benefits for stay of a certain length and packages for weddings and other special events. You can even schedule a welcoming phone call from the Disney character of your choice to delight the children in your group.
