There are two different types of hotels we will be looking at here – on-site and off-site. There are many perks to staying on-site at Disney but the price isn’t always worth it, depending on the type of Disney fan you are. Equally, there are many hotels and motels in the Anaheim area that are older than others; built in a different era with little opportunity or reason to renovate. Equally, there are some more expensive but much nicer and newer hotels to choose from, as well as a few renovated hotels too. 

We have included both types of hotels in this post and have included the pros, cons, average price, hotel rating and our opinion on whether it is worth the price.
