11 Best Hotels Between Disneyland & Universal Studios Hollywood

If you are a theme park enthusiast then you’ll likely want to visit the two biggest and most popular theme park attractions in the County of Los Angeles; Universal Studios Hollywood and the Disneyland Resort.

However, the distance between these two attractions is approximately 35 miles, which with LA traffic often results in a drive of around 80 to 90 minutes each way. This leaves many theme park goers having to decide between;

  1. Only visiting one theme park
  2. Staying in Anaheim for Disneyland and then staying in Hollywood for Universal Studios
  3. Staying in a single location situated perfectly between the two theme parks

Staying in a hotel conveniently situated between the two locations reduces the hassle of packing up and moving all your belongings (which can be a nightmare, I speak from experience) and still allows you to visit both Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood, albeit with a shorter drive to each.
