Though there are Disney parks all around the world, including in Southern California and Florida (and let’s not forget Disney Cruise Line), Disney vacations can be cost-prohibitive for a lot of families. Thankfully, there are ways to bring down the overall cost of a Disney vacation by using points and miles.

There are points hotels from every major hotel brand near the original Disneyland, making it easy to use your hotel points to book a stay. Amenities and hotel categories vary from one property to the next, but you’re sure to find something within your budget and requirements.

Here are 12 of the best hotels near Disneyland in Anaheim, California, that you can book on points.

Where Is Disneyland

Disneyland is in Southern California. More specifically, the park, along with Disney’s California Adventure, is in Anaheim, California, about 40 minutes by car south of Los Angeles.

Anaheim’s closest airport is John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana (SNA), followed by Long Beach Airport (LGB), and Ontario International Airport (ONT). You can also fly into Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR), but both are approximately 30 miles from Anaheim, which is often an hour-long drive or more in LA traffic.

Disneyland is a large theme park, about 500 acres if you count both Disney California Adventure Park and Disneyland Park. In a single day, you can expect to walk several miles throughout the park — having the time of your life, of course. With that said, some hotels offer free or paid shuttles to and from the park, but a lot of people choose to walk.

Methodology

The ability to use hotel points or credit card rewards to pay for your hotel stay can save you hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on a Disneyland vacation.

The hotels we list are from Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, and Marriott. The closest 3 hotels from each brand are included, and all but 2 are generally considered walkable from the resort. All but 1 hotel has a shuttle service available for a fee, but none of them offer a free shuttle to Disneyland.

You’ll also learn what amenities each hotel offers, rates for parking, and the cash and points rates for a free night. They are organized in alphabetical order by hotel brand.

Hot Tip:

Some of the hotels on this list are also Good Neighbor Hotels. Good Neighbor Hotels are near the Disneyland Resort, offer quality accommodations, and often offer ticket and accommodation packages such as a 5% discount on single-day and multi-day Disneyland Resort Park Hopper tickets on select dates.

The Best Credit Cards for Earning Hotel Points

Each of the major hotel brands offers a portfolio of credit cards to earn points in their respective loyalty programs. Those points can then be redeemed for free nights for your vacation. Some hotel credit cards come with perks like automatic status, free night certificates, and annual credits.

Hilton Honors offers personal and business credit cards from American Express. Marriott Bonvoy has personal and business cards from Chase and American Express. And Hyatt and IHG each have personal and business credit cards from Chase.

You can also transfer points from select credit cards to hotel partners, as well:

There’s also the option to transfer select airline miles to Marriott Bonvoy and Hilton Honors, but that’s not always the best use of your airline miles.

Final Thoughts

Disneyland truly is a magical place. Despite the crowds and age of the park, the grounds are pristine, and the hospitality of the staff is always top-notch. It’s no wonder that an average of 50,000 people visit Disneyland every day to experience it. Park tickets are indeed expensive, but the cost of a hotel room doesn’t have to be your main concern when affording a trip to Disneyland, thanks to points hotels near the park.
