    Family is planning a Disneyland and LA vacation, can I accomplish both with one hotel location?

    LA and Anaheim are rather close in proximity, but is the traffic too much that it would be better to choose an Anaheim hotel for Disney, then move to an LA hotel for that portion of the trip? What are some recommendations?
