How many days will you spend at Disneyland and California Adventure? There is no airport in Anaheim. There is an Orange County airport that is bordered by Irvine and Costa Mesa.

Renting a car and staying in one place will be easier. Driving and parking is not that difficult in Orange County.

You can do alot of different options such as stay near Disneyland for that part of your trip, and Knotts is only about 7 miles away from Disneyland, so you can easily visit there from the Disneyland area.

Huntington Beach or Newport Beach are about a 30 min easy drive away from Anaheim so you could do a day trip, or stay near the Ocean for a few days ect. Its just really up to you what you may want to do.

There are plenty of Car Rental places near to Disneyland, alot of them offer a pick up from Hotels in the area to their office. There are also a few rental car places in some of the Hotels, and on Katells which is near to Disneyland.
