Mickey's Space Ship Shuttle from LAX

Hi lovely California vacationers!

DH will be arriving at LAX in just 16 short days for a 4-day stay at the DL Hotel (first time staying on site!). We are going with a friend and her parents and we can't wait to see the new Cars Land!

So here is my question...

My friend recommended that we make a reservation for the Mickey's Space Ship Shuttle from LAX to the hotel. She told us not to be afraid of the *awesome* website . I was curious if anyone here had used this shuttle service or if we would be better off doing something more mainstream (like the Disneyland Resort Express). We arrive around 10:00am on 10/20 and our flight leaves at 7:30pm on 10/23. I'm also curious what time we should plan to catch a shuttle back to the airpott.

Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!

Ha ha ha....

I'm guessing from the lack of replies that the answer is "no".....

I'm thinking we may just do Disneyland Resort Express..

I don't have a ton of respect for a business that cannot use spell check... sorry! Also, I would be very wary of the car seats - you don't know if they are crashed, expired, etc.

Comes up every year or so on this board. Personally, I wouldn't go anywhere near them. But that's just me (and a lot of other DISers, apparently).

I've seen them on the road, either by the Disneyland Resort, or by LAX, but I do not know how they work. If it were me, I would either take the DL Express or SuperShuttle.

Yes we have used them a few times. The service was fine. One thing I liked was the personal contact and good communication. We talked to Mickey himself and he has been on time, everytime. He usually takes just one group or family at a time so it very nice not having multiple stops. The van he drives is far from new but all shuttles need to pass safety inpections so we felt safe. Only once we had another of his vans and driver, the van was a little nicer and all was fine again. Mickey was a less expensive option but that's not why we used his service. The reason I like them is when you need a pickup you talk directly to the person who will pick you up. Never any confusion.

We have also used Super Shuttle. A little newer vans. Only negative thing was a late pickup for our return flight. I felt better talking to a real person not an automated system but we caught our flight so in the end all was fine.

Only once used the Big Disneyland Express bus. I will avoid it in the future. Too many stops, the trip took us two hours as we were some of the last passengers off.

We plan to use Mickey again in Nov. & Jan. So far I have no complaints. I have never visited his website but now I'm curious.

Hope that helps. Older van, safe, on time, good communication.

Interesting. I haven't heard of them. How much can it cost to hire a high school kid to design your website though? Lol. They could have the best service in the world but that site doesn't inspire confidence.

We are experimenting with Karmel shuttle tonight which is new to us so I'm a bit nervous

I'll be sure to let you know if I see the spaceship at the airport tonight.

I will admit I am fascinated with the site. It's so bad it's good. My favorite part is the photo gallery of other service vans broken down or on fire. Lol.
