Ok, so I found out today that My family is going to Disneyland. We are beginning to look at packages but we want to see if booking the flights separately will save some money. We want to leave GEG on June 16th and come back on June 21st. I do not know which airport is the closest so I do not know where to begin on this. There will be 5 adults and my son who is 8. Does anyone have suggestions on an airline or what airport to choose? Also any ideas on airfare would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much. -Dan Big grin

Alaska, United and Southwest would be the three I'd look into. SNA-John Wayne Orange County is the closest airport, within 10 miles. LAX is about 35 miles away or so.

AS has GEG-LAX non-stops once a day that run about 364.40 R/T and SNA flights run about 378.30 R/T on AS connecting flights thru SEA or PDX.

WN does not publish schedules and fares that far advance so you will have to wait for that one.

Your closest airport choice is John Wayne, SNA. It tends to be a more expensive choice though. In my experience, flights and car rentals are more expensive and will usually override the SNA proximity advantage.

I think you will find that LAX, although farther away, will give you more flight choices, cheaper flights, and cheaper rental cars. And, if you arrive and leave during non-rush hour times, you can be to Disneyland in about 45 - 60 minutes.

Do you know how long it will be until WN updates their schedules out that far?

Hopefully pretty quick. I would think WN might want to start selling their summer seats as soon as the new year gets under way.

You might also want to consider Ontario, CA (ONT). The distance from Disneyland is about the same.

Currently they are doing through 9 June, wait two weeks and check them but it looks like their best fares are no better than AS looking at the same thing two weeks earlier.

Just taking a quick look, you'll do a lot better with a package. Travelocity has one that's only a few dollars more than the airfare including the hotel.

HP flies GEG to SNA. Also, is LGB closer to Disneyland than SNA is? If so, HP flies to LGB as well as SNA. May or may not be cheaper, cannot vouch either way.

AS also flies from SEA to LGB. SNA is closer but LGB is not that much further away. Both airports have good freeway access. LGB is a lot less busy than SNA and fewer airline choices.

IMO LAX is too far away and too chaotic. If you had a choice between LAX and ONT, I would definitely pick ONT.

If you fly AS, you'll have to connect in either PDX or SEA. On WN, you can connect at OAK. On UA, you would have to connect at SFO.

There is only one Disneyland in the U.S. Disneyworld is near Orlando, FL. Now, if you're talking international, there's a Disneyland in Paris, Tokyo and Hong Kong.

I'd look into AS. Alaska has "Kids Fly Free To Disneyland" goin on. You might check www.alaskaair.com for the details.

Everyone pretty much knows my feelings about WN  Wink

HP/US is pretty good. They may be a good option for you guys as well.

United will get you to LAX, and then you would have to drive, or take a puddle hopper to SNA

AA vactions offers packages to fly in from DFW/ORD n/s to SNA and stay in the Disneyland Hotel or surrounding area. I have an annual pass to the Most Magical Place on Earth! I didn't get to go home this year, and I envy your trip!

FYI Disneyland SUCKS! If you can get something close in price go to Disneyworld, its a lot bigger, and there is a lot more to do. I went to Disneyland this summer, and it was the biggest waste of money.

I just looked at airfare, Orlando is actually about $75 per person cheaper then SNA, $30 cheaper pp then long beach, $60 per person then LAX, $55 per person then BUR, and $70 per person cheaper in air fare then going to ONT. I found Disneyland/Orlando offer A LOT more then the the Disneyland/Anaheim area, more theme parks, restuarants, etc. Also Orlando tends to be a bit cheaper overall for food and things like that. My suggestion, go to Disneyworld/Orlando.

Actually, it's Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort if you want the proper names. Disneyland Resort includes the original Disneyland park along with the new California Adventure Park.

Disney World Resort includes the original Magic Kingdom Park along with Epcot(part of the original plan for Disney World even if it's nothing like what Walt wanted as executed), Disney/MGM, Animal Kingdom, etc.

They each also include a variety of hotels, shopping, etc. as part of the resort, i.e. Downtown Disney, Pleasure Island, etc.

While we're on the topic of Disney - when going to Disneyworld in Orlando, is MCO or Sanford (using G4) the better option? Or is there a smaller airport SW of Orlando that gets you in closer? And also, where is Disneyland Paris in relation to CDG? And Tokyo Disney to NRT?

SFB is much further away.. If you get a package, go to MCO because Disney will supply the trans to the parks via the "Magical Express".. Be forewarned, if you use the transportation, your luggage won't arrive to the hotel to appx 4-6 hrs later in most cases. Hope this helps a little.

Correct, and to clarify: if you want to talk about either park, and not the supporting area, then my post would be correct.  Wink

SNA is closest, then LGB, then LAX (believe it or not), then ONT. ONT, however, will have the best traffic flow of the 4.

United can get you from SFO to SNA so you only do a single connect.

also, where is Disneyland Paris in relation to CDG?

It is 40km by car or roughly 30 mins.
There also is a direct TGV connection, which is the famous French high speed train. It takes 10 minutes, but I doubt it'll reach a speed over -say- 200km/h on this stretch, as it is very short.
Check www.viamichelin.com or Google Earth for Maps or a Sat view.

26 Coronado990 : The only reason I would even bothered mentioning LAX is because GEG has a non-stop in that market. That makes things simple too.
27 DeltaGator : MCO is the only way to go. You might find some cheaper flights into TPA though and it isn't a bad drive. EuroDisney is NE of Paris and has a spur off
