Hotel in Long Beach - visit Disney Land

Hi,

We are 2 families traveling with 3 kids to CA (flying to LAX). Is it good idea to stay in Long Beach (be close to the ocean) and visit Disney Land, as an alternative to staying in Anaheim area? We are planning to spend 2-3 days in Disney parks. We are renting a car. Any other suggestions about places/towns close to Disney would be greatly appreciated!

I would stay closer to Anaheim and go to Huntington Beach for the ocean. A cruise up and down Pacific Coast Hwy is a treat since it has the ocean on once side. It is a beautiful drive beaches galore.

You will want to stay near Disneyland at a hotel that is walkable to the resort or one that runs a shuttle service.

Drive down to Huntington Beach or Newport Beach/Corona del Mar/Balboa Island for the beach experience.
