disneyland questions, airports

I'm working with a travel agent and she asked me what airport I want to fly into. I'm coming from washington state and my options are LA, Anaheim and Long Beach airports. Not being familiar with the area I thought I would ask here. My primary goal is to have everything be easy, no stress, and not a lot of driving. We will be taking a shuttle from whatever airport we fly into. Thanks for your thoughts.

I'm assuming that by Anaheim Airport you mean John Wayne (SNA). That would be my choice, by far. It's much less busy than LAX, less hectic, and only 13 miles away. Finding your shuttle at LAX can be a chore.

Wayne is a really nice airport, but can become busy -- if you cant get it, Long Beach is small and really, really easy to get in and out of -- not that far as all

John Wayne Airport (which is in the Costa Mesa/Irvine area, not Anaheim) is one of the most expensive airports to fly out of in the L.A. area - don't know if it's also expensive to fly into it, but I would imagine the logic holds. It is the closest of the three to Disneyland, however.

Long Beach Airport is only a little farther up the freeway and is one of the area's best-kept secrets. For a long time LBA was the only airport in the L.A. area JetBlue flew out of. This would probably be my choice, were I in your shoes.

LAX is big, crowded, and is the farthest from Disneyland. You are almost guaranteed to run into some traffic on the freeway if you use this airport.



It is what it is.

I live a half mile from Long Beach Airport. We have Annual Passes to Disneyland.

We like to go to Disney and walk, and look at the people. If it is not busy do a ride or two, then when hot or crowded, we can leave and go home.

Certainly can buy your tickets ahead of time. Southern Cal residents get a discount.

Depends on how many days you will be going. Find out how to use the Fast Pass option on the internet. It will make your stay a little nicer.
Good luck

I lived in SoCal for 49 years. I used to work in Orange County and would drive right by Long Beach Airport on the way to work.

Another vote for Long Beach Airport.

ONT is not an option?

Not soon enough for you unfortunately; ONT to Disneyland

My vote for Long Beach too. It's a step back in time. First time I flew in there I felt like I was on the set of a WWII movie. Old terminal, short lines. I like Burbank too and used to fly in there when my son lived in Glendale.



If you don't stand for something, you'll probably fall for anything.t
