OK I’m at Disneyland like every other weekend, I love that place! Depending on what hotel you stay in, Disneyland runs shuttles from LAX to the hotel. You can also fly into Long Beach, which is great if you want to fly Jet Blue (fabulous airline). If you want to fly into Orange County, there is the John Wayne Airport but I’m not sure how easy it would be to flnd a reasonable flight into there.

As far as Disneyland tips:

rent a locker and bring in some of your own food! Lockers are only $10 a day and you can go into and out of them as much as they want. Trust me, they are a lifesaver when you don’t want to carry your coats/bags all day. Also they allow food into the park which is super helpful on the budget/health factor.

Use the fastpass. You can only do one fastpass at a time, however you can have two at the same time if they are from both parks (Disneyland/CA Adventure).

If you don’t mind skipping the parades (not sure if they will have fireworks going in February) plan to go on the best rides then (Space Mountain, Toy Story, etc.)

I don’t really have any tips for what else to see in the area, but I do have a few places to avoid. Don’t bother with Ripley’s Believe it Or Not or Mediaeval Times/Pirate Adventure. They are all across the street from Knotts and so not worth it.

Honestly February tends to be our rainy season and we sit at about 65 degrees and overcast. Nothing compared to the Midwest/East Coast in February but not the greatest weather.

I would say even though the weather is not great in February it is usually better then most the country and it will cut down on long lines at the parks. Beware though that in the rain Knotts will close some rides. If you are renting a car Long Beach is a great airport to fly in and out off because it is small and has no real hassle. Also since you are renting the car I would look at hotels maybe in Huntington Beach or Newport Beach because the restaurants and shopping around them will be nicer then around Knotts or Disneyland and it is a really short drive.
