Booking a hotel within walking distance of Disneyland means you don’t have to deal with traffic or with the Disney parking lot. That gives you more time on Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, which is more fun. The three Disneyland Resort Hotels (the Disneyland Hotel, Paradise Pier, the Grand Californian) are all a quick walk to the entrance gates. And you’ll find a number of outside-the-park-but-still-an-easy-walk-to-the-entrance hotels (at http://disneyland.disney.go.com/hotels/good-neighbor/).
