This isn’t a traditional hotel review, because I’ve never actually stayed at this hotel. But because so many people ask me about the Tropicana Anaheim hotel, I had to take a quick look in one of the rooms to give you an insider tour.


There are many hotels near Disneyland that are independently owned (including name brands), so don’t pass up some of these unfamiliar names—they might become your new favorite. Here’s a recap of some of the closest and most popular independently owned hotels near Disneyland:

And of course, Tropicana is the hotel we’re reviewing today. It’s the closest hotel I can personally recommend.

Tropicana Anaheim Hotel Location

You scoured hotel reviews and Google maps. What you found is right—Tropicana is indeed the closest hotel within walking distance to Disneyland. Yes, even closer than the Disneyland Hotel.

Tropicana is located at 1540 S Harbor Blvd, Anaheim, CA 92802. Get to Tropicana quickly from John Wayne Airport (SNA) or Long Beach (LBG) in about 30 minutes or less, depending on traffic.

Is this hotel walkable? 

Yes, Tropicana Anaheim is about a 2-5 minute walk to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park’s main gates. This location is seriously the best!

Here are the best ways to get to Disneyland from Tropicana:

  1. Walk. It’s right across the street and about a 5-minute walk to Disneyland. Head. You’re totally right there! No other options are needed because you truly can’t get closer than if you were sleeping overnight in Walt’s Apartment. See a full walking video from area hotels to Disneyland here.
  2. Uber. If walking isn’t your thing you can always grab an Uber but it’ll honestly take longer and is a waste when staying this close.
  3. ART Shuttle (Anaheim Rapid Transit) is not needed, you’re much too close. It would take longer for sure.

When you want a simple hotel with all the perks of being right next to Disneyland, this is your spot!

Tropicana Anaheim Hotel Breakfast

Tropicana Anaheim hotel does not offer complimentary breakfast. But don’t let that scare you away. Eating breakfast inside Disneyland Resort is one of my favorite ways to indulge. PS mobile ordering with the Disneyland app helps so you don’t waste any time at all!
