1. Howard Johnson Anaheim Hotel and Water Playground
The Howard Johnson Anaheim Hotel and Water Playground is another good friend to the Disneyland Resort area, and has been a popular pick for vacationing families to the area for many years. Located less than half a mile from the parks (in the shadow of Matterhorn Mountain, in fact) hotel guests have easy access to and from, whether it be by walking or taking the reliable ART shuttle. The latter is convenient for families with kids or those intending to bring with them (or bring back) extra items. Hotel guests may purchase tickets for ART shuttle services at the main desk in the lobby. Additionally, this is the go-to place to get your Disneyland Park Hopper Tickets as well.
The spacious, landscaped, and serene resort is comprised of 303 rooms and spans seven pristine acres, making for a whole host of onsite attributes to enjoy. One of the site’s grandest features is Castaway Cove—the only themed waterpark facility at any good neighbor hotel to Disneyland. Other aquatic attributes to be found at the resort include the more serene Garden Pool, children’s wadding pool, and Speedy’s Sprayground. Aside from the watery wonders, additional amenities to be enjoyed by resort guests include complimentary parking, a recreational game room, gift shop, onsite restaurant, and much, much more.
As you look around the Anaheim area for a convenient resort to stay at while visiting Disneyland Parks it’s always best to choose one that carries the official Disney “good neighbor hotel” status. Good neighbor hotels are known for their reliability and commitment to making your park visits more convenient and even sell park tickets right on location. And the constant back and forth shuttle services that many offer throughout the day is just another beneficial perk to make the experience more magical for guests.
