You posted in the Big Sur forum ... which is 300 or so miles away.
Anaheim and Hollywood are quite a ways apart -- not even in the same county. Go over to the LA forum and read the Top Questions there. Generally the advice if you want to spend time at Disney and in LA (including Hollywood) is to split your stays and not try to commute between the two.
Ask this in the Los Angeles forum but to answer you quickly, the answer largely depends if you will have a car, or not. In general, MDR is not a good place to stay without a car. With a car, its do-able but its not a place where you can really just walk out of your hotel and get the bus tours, tohugh some tour companies will pick you up from there. In general, however, I would not limit your choice between MDR and Anaheim, that's a false choice - chose between MDR and another part of central LA like Santa Monica, Venice, Beverly Hills, Westwood, West Hollywood, Beverly Grove, Hollywood or downtown LA. The latter two tend to be the best places to be without a car, due to public transit access and, especially in Hollywood, tour bus access. Then if you are going to be spending more than one day at Disney, switch to an Anaheim / Garden Grove hotel.
Ok thanks for feedback.
Many thanks for advice
