Travel Suggestions:

Get the low-down on airports near the Hyatt Regency Orange County from a local NOAH Community member:

LAX – the farthest distance from hotel, often a route with traffic, but probably best deal
Orange County / John Wayne – most convenient, small airport, most expensive
Ontario – closer than LAX, bigger and cheaper than Orange County
Long Beach – closer option, smaller airport but very easy to navigate, and typically a very affordable option after LAX (depending on the airline)
Burbank – smaller airport, also further away


What About Disneyland?!?

NOAH is currently working on securing a group discount for Disneyland, and a NOAH meetup is being planned for Wednesday, July 8th.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available. Stay tuned!
