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 rent a car when you arrive at the airport.

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
