3. Be Mobile
Visiting Disneyland doesn’t necessarily mean staying in Disneyland, for instance, unless it is a must due to special needs… Again, it is different between “must-have” and “nice to have.” Everything in or near tourist attractions are expensive. If you have your car or rent a car, you can book a hotel within a reasonable driving distance from your destination. For example, driving to Disneyland from a hotel in Buena Park, Anaheim Hills, Garden Grove, Westminster, Santa Ana, or even Irvine, Costa Mesa, is less than 30 minutes.
With a car, you can have more choices while being able to save a lot of food as well.
