Anaheim Airports, Train Stations, and Shuttle Buses

We want to ensure a smooth flight to Anaheim, California, for you and your family. The Los Angeles International Airport, John Wayne Airport, and Long Beach Airport are your best options for getting a flight into Anaheim. These airports provide easy access to Anaheim, helping to minimize the stress of flying for you and your family. 

    • John Wayne Airport (Orange County, SNA)
      • Located in Santa Ana, California, this is the airport we recommend our guests fly through. It’s the closest proximity to Anaheim – only about 15 miles from Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel. 
    • Los Angeles International Airport (Los Angeles, LAX)
      • The Lost Angeles International Airport is about 34 miles from Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel. 
    • Long Beach Airport (LGB)
      • The Long Beach Airport is only about 13 miles from Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel. 

We make it easy for guests to find transportation to and from the hotel. Through our connections with the Karmel Shuttle Airport Service, our hotel guests can receive a discounted rate on airport shuttle bus services.

If you want to avoid the airport, the Amtrack Pacific Surfliner travels along a 351-mile route through San Diego, Orange, Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo counties. Portions of the route are near the Southern California coastline, allowing you to take in the coastal beauty that you’d miss on an airplane. Along the Pacific Surliner’s route, you’ll travel directly through Anaheim, where you can begin your Disneyland® Resort vacation! The Amtrack station is about 4 miles from Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel. 

Transportation Around Anaheim 

Uber and Lyft can help you and your family get around throughout your vacation, with transportation to restaurants, shopping centers, and all the fun events and attractions mentioned above. 

If you prefer to have a rented vehicle, you can find vehicle rentals at the John Wayne Airport and Long Beach Airport. The Los Angeles International Airport doesn’t have a centralized car rental center, so plan ahead to compare car rental prices if you’re flying with them. 

  • John Wayne Airport has rental cars available between Terminals A and B on the Arrival Lane. 
  • Long Beach Airport has rental cars available in the Airport Ground Transportation Center right opposite the terminal. 

If you plan to visit Disneyland® Resort while you’re here, there’s no need to worry about extra transportation once you arrive. As a Disneyland® Resort Good Neighbor Hotel, Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel offers a free shuttle service to Disneyland® Resort via our Dream Machine Shuttle. This shuttle will take you directly to and from the parks without stopping at other hotels. The shuttle schedule will be posted in the hotel lobby daily, so be sure to check it once you enter the hotel.
