Flights to Disneyland

There are five commercial airports in the Los Angeles area. Los Angeles International (LAX) is the most common arrival point for Disneyland visitors. It's one of the world's busiest airports, offering the most airline choices and flights. It's the only choice for most international flights. On the downside, it’s busy and noisy - and 35 miles from Disneyland.

John Wayne/Orange County (SNA) is only fifteen miles from The Disneyland Resort. It's a convenient option if you can find a flight to it that meets your needs and it's quieter and easy to get around in.

Other airport options include Long Beach, which is served by budget carrier Jet Blue, Burbank and Ontario. Also consider San Diego if you're planning to spend part of your vacation there.

Cheap Flights to Disneyland

Any of the big-name travel sites are worth a try to look for low airfares and you can compare price on flights to Disneyland at Tripadvisor. Keep in mind that the airlines that may have the cheapest flights to Disneyland don't participate in those big sites, so you need to check their fares separately: Try Jet Blue or look for package deals at Southwest Airlines.

The “red eye” flights leaving between 10:00 p.m. and midnight are often the cheapest flights from Disneyland to the East Coast, where you'll arrive the following morning. You can stay at Disneyland for most of the day and may save on a night in a hotel as well as getting lower airfare. Although some people hate flying all night, others find a good way to conquer jet lag.
