If you’re planning a trip to Disneyland, staying at one of the many hotels nearby is a total game-changer!
Not only will it save you tons of time and money, but it’ll also make getting to the parks a breeze.
As much as I love staying at one of the three beautiful and conveniently located Disneyland Resort hotels, there may be times when it just doesn’t work out financially because those room rates can get pretty expensive, even in the slow season.
But thankfully, there quite a few highly rated and affordable hotels that are significantly cheaper than Disney’s, and are all within walking distance to Disneyland and Downtown Disney.
By staying at one of these fantastic properties near Disneyland, you have the freedom to break up your park day and easily return to your hotel during the middle of the day without having to worry about trams, shuttles, or Ubers.
And thankfully, most of these hotels are a 10 or 15 minute walk, max.
Below, I’ll share some of the closest off-property hotels near Disneyland Resort including some of my personal favorites!
