Hotels Near Disneyland With Kitchens

by Lisa Fritscher

Disneyland is a top tourist destination, drawing an estimated 15.9 million visitors in 2009. The resort includes two theme parks and a nighttime shopping and dining complex called Downtown Disney, as well as several on-site hotels. It would be quite easy to spend an entire vacation on Disneyland property and never dine in the same place twice. If you are trying to save money or have special dietary restrictions, you may prefer a hotel room with a kitchen.
