Disneyland Group Travel Tips
Guests are choosing to invite MORE family and friends on their vacations than ever before. With features like Disney Genie+ and so many area hotels offering suites and perks like free breakfast, you get even MORE magic and MORE memories in return.
Going to Disneyland is the perfect blend of an extended family reunion and standard family vacation where just grandparents, their adult children, and their kids (the grandchildren), or similar family groupings get together for an unforgettable vacation!
Those going as a youth group, performing arts group or another combination of friends and family know a lot goes into planning all the details.
Our Disneyland group reservations agents are on hand, ready to help walk you through the process. We’ve gathered some of our top group travel tips to have on hand when you call us to book your Disneyland group trip.
The process is simple:
- Call Get Away Today Groups Department at 801-317-1190 and speak to one of our knowledgeable group travel representatives.
- Be ready to provide your travel dates, number of guests and ages.
- Let us know if you need hotel rooms, tickets (yes, we even offer performing arts and youth group tickets), or anything else.
After we discuss your specific needs, our team personally reaches out to hotels that will best accommodate your needs to negotiate the best prices.
Get Away Today partners with many of the hotels in the Anaheim area and offer our guests wholesale rates on hotel stays and many hotels offer our groups additional discounts.
We then get back to you with the hotel quotes and see if you would like to accept any of the offers—all free of charge!
Disneyland Group Hotels
There are several things we look for when recommending a hotel for your Disneyland group and we have partnered with some of the best hotels in Anaheim to check off everything on your wish list including things like:
- Discount group hotel rates, often at better prices than the hotels can offer directly
- Walking distance to Disneyland or simplified transportation options
- Breakfast included or affordable options nearby
- Suites sleeping six guests or more
Some of our favorite area hotels for large groups include Desert Palms Hotel & Suites, Cambria Hotel & Suites Anaheim Resort and The Anaheim Hotel—just to name a few.
Desert Palms Hotel & Suites is a long time partner of Get Away Today and they love hosting groups. They offer complimentary breakfast and often will set aside a separate breakfast room just for Get Away Today group bookings. Plus, Desert Palms is a short 10 minute walk to Disneyland.
Cambria Hotel & Suites Anaheim Resort offers standard rooms and suites. Every room has double showers making it easier for large groups to get ready each day. They also have a large complimentary breakfast spread, full waterpark and lots of dining options just outside the lobby doors.
The Anaheim Hotel has great pricing year-round. They are only about a 5 minute walk to Disneyland. They have expansive grounds (perfect for warm ups and practice), an Olympic size pool, and a Get Away Today favorite, The Pizza Press in the lobby.
