How to get to Disney's California Adventure
How do I get to Disneyland from LAX
There are lots of ways to make this trip. Take a taxi, a shuttle, bus, etc.
LAX to Disneyland is a 35 mile trip. Under normal circumstances, this trip should take about 40 minutes, but nothing is normal in LA. Los Angeles traffic can be a nightmare. For that reason, taking a taxi can cost anywhere from $60 to $120. Our advise! "Avoid taking a taxi at all costs".
The cheapest and most efficient way to make this trip is to take the Disneyland Resort Express Bus.
This bus will pick you up at LAX and drop you at your Disneyland area hotel. The fare is $22 per adult and $19 for a child. Here is more information on how to get discount tickets and where to catch the Disneyland Resort Express Bus.
How to get to Disney's California Adventure from Downtown Los Angeles
Take the Red Line (subway) to Downtown Los Angeles, get off at 7th/Metro, walk out of the station to Wilshire and Flower, and catch the 460 Express straight to Disneyland. Couldn't be easier, but it will take about 2 hours. You can get schedules and other information at www.metro.net
From the Anaheim Metrolink station you can catch a convenient shuttle to Disneyland
and Disney's California Adventure. Take Metrolink Weekends to Anaheim for
your weekend getaway. For more information, visit www.octa.net/metrolinkweekends.
