Our 2 visits have been split as 3 nights in Anaheim and 4 nights in more central LA. Theres plenty to do in LA.

We stayed at Desert Inn and Suites and Best Western Plus Anaheim Inn in Anaheim - both were about 5/10 minutes walk from the park entrance and were much of a muchness. We stayed at The Tangerine in Burbank and The Garland close to Universal. Id recommend any of the 4 hotels.

A tip would be to try and be at Disneyland over the weekend if you wish to see the fireworks. I didnt realise they only did them at weekends and they cancel them if the wind is blowing in the wrong direction.

Disneyland may be the same size as DLP but there is a hell of a lot there we did all the rides in a day in October many multiple times but would not have without fatspass plus.

To give another view last October we went for a week, stayed in Anaheim (Clarion - kind of basic but fine)

We didnt really explore California but may do on another trip, we got 5 day tickets and went into the parks 5 days and didnt get bored in the slightest, amazing parks and the Halloween stuff knocked WDW out of the water.

The other two days we did Knotts Berry Farm and a whistlestop tour around Hollywood, Beverly Hills and a couple of beaches with the Anaheim Tour company.

Flights were with Thomas Cook from Manchester and a lot cheaper than flights to Orlando tend to be.

We were apprehensive as we booked on a whim but overall it may be our favourite ever holiday and hope to go back next year. The magic kingdom there may be slightly smaller but is easily my favourite single park of any Ive been to, so much in there and so much history

Summer holidays can be 600-900, but guess you can pick them up cheaper if you keep checking back. We did 5 days at disney at Easter and loved it, though first and last days were only part days. Much prefer DCL to WDW, you'll have to like riding the same rides over and over mind. KnottsBerry is close by, easy to uber/lyft to get to, and defo recommended as you seem to have young children. If you do decide to expand the holiday then read some trip reports, plenty of options, San Diego would probable suit your family.

There was something we just loved about being in a hotel a 10 minute walk to both park entrances with 7/11 and loads of dining options on the way

Took out a lot of the stress of WDW when we are often waiting on buses in crowds etc

Really recommend anyone giving it a go
