Airport closest to Disneyland


Airport closest to Disneyland. Please describe the airport. Please discuss how long of a drive from the airport to Disneyland is.


Disneyland is located in Anaheim, California. Many people will tell you that it is in LA, it is not. The closest airport is John Wayne Orange County Airport (SNA). I recommend flying into this airport due to its proximity to the resort.

Your other option of flying to Disneyland is LAX, Los Angeles’ huge airport. The drive from here to the resort is a long one especially during commute times but the deals are often times better flying into LAX deals are often better due to more flight options.

The John Wayne Airport, located 14 miles from the Anaheim Resort, provides a simple flying experience with just one building that is split up into a Terminal A and Terminal B. Upon arrival at the airport, the walk from your gate to the baggage carousel and then upon your return from the check in to the gate is quick and easy.

The top airlines that provide service out of the Orange County Airport are:

  • Alaska Airlines
  • American Airlines
  • Delta Air Lines
  • Frontier Airlines
  • Southwest Airlines
  • United Airlines
  • Westjet

The airport is second in the area only to the Los Angeles Airport for the amount of flights and destinations served each day. The airport serves over 740,000 passengers a month and services 240 arrivals and departures each day.

This is far and away our top recommendation for flying to the Disneyland Resort or the Anaheim Convention Center. However, flight fare can be much less expensive at other airports such as the Los Angeles International Airport. Be sure to compare prices.
