4. Choose Your Hotel
Disneyland has 3 resort hotels and multiple Good Neighbor hotels. Some hotels are within easy walking distance to the parks. Others offer things like free breakfast or a shuttle to the parks. Decide what amenities are most important to you.

5. Purchase Theme Park Tickets & Make Reservations
