JW Marriott, Anaheim Resort

The brand-new JW Marriott, Anaheim Resort is a stunning retreat that’s close enough to Disneyland to enjoy all that the theme parks have to offer, but far enough away to feel like its own oasis after the fireworks. The resort is known for its JW Garden and yoga and zen room, both of which are nice places to relax before or after a day at the theme parks. Be sure to plan at least one night to enjoy the rooftop views from Parkestry Rooftop Bar, where light bites and craft cocktails are matched with fireworks viewing.
