Disney is an hour (by car) south of L.A. and Six Flags is an hour north. Six Flags will only be open Sat & Sun in February. Also Feb can be rainy so be prepared.

On arrival I would drive to Anaheim and get a hotel near Disney for two nights, so that you can get an eary start at Disney in the morning and stay until closing time, without worrying about the heavy morning traffic from L.A. Next three nights maybe move to Best Western Sunset Plaza in West Hollywood,or the Universal Hilton Hotel.

There are several nice hotels near Disneyland with family-sized rooms and suites, but this type of room is harder to find up in Hollywood/Los Angeles. How many people are in the family? Not sure of the ages of your children but Universal and Six Flags are really for 9 or 10 yr olds and up.
Also, I don't know your arrival time into Los Angeles but it's a good idea to plan and stay out of traffic from 7:30 to 9:30am and from 4:30 to 7:30pm whenever possible.

www.betterbidding.com priceline bidding best cheapest

for me... Have personally done this 2 ways...

$60/nt Crowne Plaza San Pedro LA Harbor as my base

to Anaheim and www.lasightseeing.net from there

worked great.

In the past have split between the Westin Bonaventure

$69/nt downtown bidding priceline and Anaheim hotel

was more expensive overall but nice actually preferred

the one hotel as a base with free parking saved a lot.

carrentals.com Fox out of LAX was very cheap.

Happy Deciding!
