There are a handful of Hotels that partner with Disney called “Good Neighbors Hotels”. These hotels are close to the park but more budget conscious than staying at the Resort Hotels. There are quite a few Marriott’s in this network and I honestly believe you can’t go wrong with Marriott.
We chose to stay at the Courtyard Anaheim Resort/Convention Center. It is located 1 mile (6min drive) from Disneyland and is right next to the Anaheim convention center which is perfect if you are needing a room while attending the D23 Expo.
We stayed in one of their regular guest rooms that sleeps up to 4 people and used our Fisher Price rock and play for our 2 month old to sleep in. Pack n plays are available if you need a crib for your little one but since this was our littles first hotel stay we opted to stick with what she is used to sleeping in. If you have a larger group their Family Suite offers bunk beds, a pullout sofa and 2 bedrooms so the whole family can stay together.
Their restaurant The Bistro has delicious food and is open for breakfast and dinner. You can order breakfast sandwiches if you want something on the go in the morning to take with you to the Parks. There is also Starbucks Coffee available! We ordered dinner from the Bistro and took it back up to our room for a picnic since it was bedtime for the little one. The food was absolutely delicious. We’ve stayed at a lot of Marriott’s through our travels and the food never disappoints!

The hotel offers a few Disneyland Ticket packages that you can review Here. Their “You Got a Friend in Me” package includes breakfast and parking at the hotel. If you don’t purchase a package, parking at the hotel is $20.
There is a pool on site and a beautiful outdoor lounge area that has a fire pit to relax around. As usual, the staff was welcoming and pleasant from the moment we arrived to checking out the next morning. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated and the beds are seriously comfortable. We had a wonderful stay and highly recommend any of the hotels in the Marriott family. We hope you look into staying at the Courtyard Anaheim Resort/Convention Center on your next Disney vacation or if you plan on attending the D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center.
