I wouldn't recommend the Disneyland Hotel right now (too much construction). There's this hotel called the Howard Johnson. It is located at 595 West Manchester Avenue. It is a pretty quiet hotel. When I stayed there, I loved it. And best of all, it is right next to Disneyland. Depending where you stay, you can get a wonderful view of the Matterhorn and Space Mountain.
Way back 21 years ago, we got married in July and took a weekend Pre honeymoon before our actual honeymoon at WDW. We stayed at the Disneyland Hotel, but the hotel today is definitely going through changes. So choose the Grand Californian Hotel. Pricey but nice. Ask for honeymoon specials, you might get lucky.
I'll take a large Tea Cup with a side of Casey Jr. And when will all the construction finally end?
If you have the money, splurge on an on-property hotel (Grand Californian, Disneyland Hotel, or Paradise Pier) and then tell them it's your honeymoon, so that they can make it extra special The Grand Californian especially would be a fantastic place for a honeymoon - I'm hopeful that when I am looking for a honeymoon hotel at Disneyland that I can afford it, because it'd be such a great place to spend the trip!
If you're looking at staying off-property, it wouldn't be very MiceChat-y of me not to mention the Howard Johnson Anaheim, right across from the Matterhorn on Harbor Blvd. Being a MiceChat member means that you can get 15% off regular nightly rates - click that link to get the promo code.
When I was at the resort last, I stayed off-property at the Travelodge International Anaheim (Harbor and Orangewood). I would not recommend it.

Ok thanks everyone. Great info. Ok next question. How should I get my park hopper passes? 3 day park hopper is probably what I'm looking for. And is there anything else I should know about going to disneyland on my honeymoon. Thanks everyone for your answers.
Buying online is easy. We bought multi-day park hoppers last summer and it was quite easy. No standing in tickey booth line. We gave the printed-at-home pages and to the person at the turnstyle who scanned it and gave us a standard ticket to use. The normal sized ticket they give you at this point is what you need for the rest of the stay. It's what you will use to get in to the parks for the duration of the stay, and for the fast pass machines. We also purchased the WoC picnic meals at the same time which worked out quite well.
Once you get there on your first day be sure to stop by City Hall or Guest relations and get you each a button to wear showing you are celebrating. It's free and an little extra special souvineer that lets others know you are just married.
