If your kids have their hearts set on a Disneyland vacation, we’re always going to recommend researching flights into Orange County or Ontario over LAX. Flights to these airports can sometimes be just as inexpensive as flights into Los Angeles, and you can save yourself a fair bit of freeway driving and airport congestion!
Just like Disney World across the country in Orlando, Florida, the O.C. boasts year-round temperate weather and that fact generally insures that there just isn’t much of a low season. Summer is definitely the most popular time to visit the Magic Kingdom, so avoid the summer months if crowds aren’t your cup of tea. The best time to visit Disneyland in order to avoid crowds is the winter months, though the rabid local fans keep park attendance high most of the time. You can consult crowd forecast calendars to get a better idea of how your dates are trending for park attendance.
Here are sample fares from popular gateways to show what you can expect to pay for airfare this summer to Orange County (SNA) and Ontario (ONT), as well as LAX if you bought your airline tickets today:
