LB airport is pretty small but looks new. It was easy to leave and the car rental place was very close. I would definitely fly into LB if I was going to Disneyland again

If you live or work near Long Beach it is worth. Small, cosy and convenient. Quaint eatery and relaxed atmosphere. We traveled from this airport to New York where we took another flight to the Caribbean and it was a long way to go; so starting fron my neighbood airport was great.
