Camping Guide:Disneyland

Sleeping Beauty's Castle

Unlike Disney World, in Florida, Disneyland in Anaheim, California doesn’t have its own RV park.

That’s not to say that taking an RV to Disneyland isn’t possible. There are three private RV parks only a few minutes of Disneyland and Disney California Adventure (the two amusement parks which make up “Disneyland” in general), and two of them are within walking distance.

Anaheim RV Park

By a slim margin, this RV Park (similarly named to the runner up, Anaheim Harbor RV Park) is the crowd favorite. Only a mile and a half from the entrance to Disney, this tightly packed campground offers full hookups on a paved slab, a picnic table and even a patch of grass, usually with a tree for some shade, to its guests.

Free WiFi, access to cable TV hookups, a hot tub, laundry, showers and an outdoor swimming pool round the experience out. You can even snag a shuttle for a few bucks that will get you to and from Disney, without ever unhooking or moving your home on the road. You can even see the nightly fireworks Mickey and his crew set off, right from your RV spot!

Expect to pay between $76 – $118 per night, depending on the time of year, day of the week and which type of spot you choose. Luckily, if you’re looking to save a little money, our Class B RVs can fit into any of their available RV sites, so whether you go premium or just snag a back in site is up to you.

Anaheim Harbor RV Park

Anaheim Harbor RV Park is more or less the better deal of the to RV parks within walking distance to Disneyland. While they have premium spots which also include a patch of grass, all of the sites are fairly sandwiched together, and the non-premium ones are essentially a spot in a parking lot.

Like its similarly named neighbor, you can otherwise expect full hookups, an outdoor pool, laundry and showers. They also have miniature golf and a game room, should Disneyland not take up all of your time during your visit, and they have a general store on site.

Their sites run between $45 – $70 per night, with the $45 sites being for RVs 25′ or shorter, which our Class B RVs are. Or for around $11 more you can score a spot with a little grass so you can enjoy Disney’s fireworks after a long day on your feet.

Orangeland RV Park

Though it’s a little further out, just under five miles from the park entrance, Orangeland is popular with RVers thanks to their reasonable rates, and that these include up to six people before you start to pay additional persons fees.

Otherwise, the experience is similar to the other RV parks in the area: showers, WiFi, a pool and hot tub, laundry, cable TV and full hookups. Each spot has a picnic table, and not much grass, but the spots are built for large RVs, so you’ll have no problem in our Class Bs.

2020 rates will run you $75 – $90 per night.

If you’ve never been to Disneyland before, note that there are two parks, and each will run you around $100 a day to visit, with discounts if you buy multiple days.

Looking for something different? If staying in a cramped RV park, close to Disney or not, isn’t exactly your thing, check out Bolsa Chica State Park (GPS: 33.6922, -118.0444) where, admittedly, the sites aren’t that much¬†more spacious, but the state park is immediately on the beach, where you can toss the frisbee around by day and have a campfire in the evening. You’ll be around 40 minutes from Disneyland, but if visiting the park isn’t your primary objective anyway, perhaps the walking trails, waves and nightlife in the coastal area will be more of your speed.
