We are doing Disneyland. We have a 2 day pass and overnight accommodation right next to Disneyland.
What would be the best way to get there?
I have seen some of the shuttle buses that run at certain times for about $20. Is this correct?
We are staying in West Hollywood so would need to travel from there to Anaheim.
Yes, a shuttle service would make the most sense.
It is possible to take the Blue Line down to Long Beach and then get a bus or cab from there, but in my opinion this would cost much more (and take longer than the shuttle service).
Calcruzer gave good advice. A direct shuttle is an excellent choice because the Blue Line light rail goes through a bad neighborhood. And it's a long day making connections.
Here is a shuttle service I have used in the past with good luck (I have no business interest in this firm)
As an alternative, take the trains at Los Angeles Union Station on Alameda.
Either Amtrak Pacific Surfliner (runs all day) south to Anaheim or Metrolink commuter trains (runs mornings and afternoons). Upon arrival at Anaheim station a connection to your nearby hotel is quite easy. Most hotels will pick you up.
The Amtrak trains have snacks and restrooms. The Metrolink trains are seats only.
Enjoy your visit to California.
i dont know how the dmv is with letting australians drive here in california, but... what about just renting a car?
im sure your thinking, "gosh thats so expensive mike." well let me tell you...
you can easily rent a car for as little as $10usd a day. check Thrifty car rental. I rented from them when i did a road trip to san francisco during summer. I paid 10usd a day and had unlimited mileage as well.
by the way i put about 1k miles on that ride, haha. never drove so much in my life :P
theres a Disney bus that leaves from the airport, it'll drop you at your Anaheim accommodation
I would agree with the above post that you should consider renting a car. Either that or go with the shuttle.
Go with the shuttle. Driving from West Hollywood means taking 6 lane freeways that can be a bit intimidating, particularly if you are used to driving on the other side of the world.
There are Anahiem shuttle busses, contact http://www.supershuttle.com/default.aspx?content=LosAngeles they are probably your best bet. Certainly better than driving
