Airport Proximity to DLR and Ground Transportation Information

There have been several threads lately relating to transportation from various airports to the Disneyland Resort. I hope the following information will be useful to people in trying to determine which airport to fly into and how to get from the airport to the resort. This list is by no means exhaustive! I just know that when we were trying to figure out which airport to fly into, we were trying to compare the difference in costs of the airline tickets between LAX and John Wayne. We then wanted to factor in the costs of the ground transportation between the two airports. Having the bulk of the information would have been so helpful! I'm not advocating the use of any of the following companies. Some people like them, some people don't, some people may prefer to use another company not listed. I know others really prefer to rent a car and have transportation available throughout their trip. Whatever you choose, I hope this information can help you with your trip planning.

Airports
The distance and times noted were gathered from Google Maps and based on a departure from the specified airport and arrival at the Disneyland Resort.

John Wayne/Orange County (SNA) to Disneyland
13.8 miles about 18 minutes (up to 30 minutes in traffic)

Disneyland Express

Note: The Disneyland Express is a private company that charges a fee for transportation from LAX and John Wayne to the DLR and Good Neighbor Hotels. It is NOT the same as WDW's complimentary Magical Express.

http://www.mousesavers.com/DisneylandResortExpress.pdf


FAQ
1. Do I need to make reservations in advance? No reservations are necessary for taking the Disneyland Express from the airport to the hotel.

2. Do I need a car seat for my child? No car seats are recommended or required for the Disneyland Express (large tour-style bus).

3. Which hotels do you stop at? Disneyland Hotel is the primary ticketing stop...usually. That's the official word from the Grayline operators, but DISBoard members report there are times when the Express will stop at Grand Californian Hotel first. After that the DE will stop at the two other DLR hotels. Beyond the resort hotels, the stops will depend on which hotels the remaining passengers are staying, but it does stop at most major hotels in the Disneyland area.

LAX Disneyland Express -- Departures from LAX daily on an hourly basis from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., with service offered every 30 minutes from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Hourly service resumes at 4:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m.

Super Shuttle

General Information

http://www.supershuttle.com/

http://www.execucarexpress.com/

(800) BLUE-VAN (800-258-3826)

FAQ

1. Do I need a car seat for my child? You are supposed to provide your own car seat if you have a child unless your child is 8 years old or 4'9" tall. They do not provide car seats or boosters.

2. Do adults and children pay the same price? Children over three pay the same fare as an adult. Children three and younger are free.

The following information was generated from the Super Shuttle website using Disneyland Hotel as the destination from each airport. Each fare is based on a one-way trip. It's important to note that entering a hotel name vs. the DLR area zipcode can cause the quoted fares to be drastically different. Make certain that if you are running your own Super Shuttle quote, that you enter the name of the hotel where you are staying rather than the zipcode. It could save you a bit of money. *See Coupon Links below for a $3 off coupon code which will work well for SNA and LAX Super Shuttle Rides.

1-877-889-4779

"Serves LAX, Burbank, John Wayne, Long Beach, Amtrak, and more..."
See Post 24 by GoofItUp for a review of Zippy!

Taxi Information

*Flat Rates - Although websites from both the Long Beach and John Wayne airports report a flat fee being available, some DISBoard members have reported not being able to get the flat rates. It's also been noted that the flat rates are from the airport to one of the DLR hotels (rather than Good Neighbor hotels) and that the taxi fees from hotel back to the airport can be more expensive.

John Wayne/Orange County (SNA) Airport

The following information is from the John Wayne airport website (http://www.ocair.com/groundtransport/taxis.htm):

John Wayne Airport Yellow Cab Service: (800) 535-2211 or (714) 535-0156

"Taxi cabs and vans are always available in the Ground Transportation Center. Cabs seat up to 5 and vans up to 7 people. Look for coordinators who can assist you with your ground transportation needs.

Fares subject to change:
Meter rate: $2.95 first ¼ mile plus $0.65 per additional ¼ mile
Wait fee: $30.00 per hour (prorated $0.50 per minute)
Flat rates to destinations may be provided upon request."*

Long Beach Airport

The following information is from the Long Beach airport website
(http://www.longbeach.gov/airport/air.../shuttle.asp):

Long Beach Yellow Cab - (562) 435-6111

"Flat Fees* as of 12/2008, all fares are subject to change without notice.
$45 Disneyland or Anaheim Convention Center
The Long Beach Airport website also has an eight page list of authorized ground transportation providers including taxis, town cars, vans, and limos:
http://www.longbeach.gov/civica/file...p?BlobID=21929"

LAX

http://www.lawa.org/welcome_lax.aspx?id=942

"Taxis can be found curbside on the Lower/Arrival Level islands in front of each terminal under the yellow sign indicating Taxis. Passengers will be presented with a ticket stating typical fares to major destinations. Only authorized taxis with an official seal issued by City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation on each vehicle are permitted in the airport. It is illegal for any transportation services to solicit fares, and travelers using such services do so at their own risk."

See website for list of authorized taxi companies and their phone numbers.

Limo Services

The following are limo services I have found mentioned by DISBoard members that have at least one positive review. I would strongly recommend getting current prices and asking for a recommendation here on the boards before booking, however.

Tony the Limo King: www.tonythelimoking.com
http://alimozone.com/home.php
www.best-trans
Harold's Limo: http://www.southcoastlimo.com/Party-...Harold-CA.html
Luken Limousine: http://luken-limousine.com/ (See Posts #26 and #34)
B&W Limos: http://www.bwlimos.com/
Ive read to avoid Starz Limo like the plague.

Amtrak

(This wont help you get from a local airport to Disneyland Resort, but Ive noticed people frequently ask about taking the train from San Diego, so thought Id include the contact information here.)

Amtrak website: http://tickets.amtrak.com/itd/amtrak
Anaheim Amtrak Station (2.3 miles from Disneyland Resort):
Station Building (with waiting room)
2150 East Katella Avenue
Anaheim Stadium Parking Lot
Anaheim, CA 92806

Ticket prices vary by date, time, and starting destination.

San Diego -- Most trips from San Diego" to "Anaheim" on the Surfliner are 2 hours long and cost $22. Holiday rates are higher.

Palm Springs -- Prepare for an entire day on the train. Most trips are "estimated" at just under 7 hours. That assumes that freight trains don't take priority on the tracks of the two trains you will be traveling (yes, you would have to transfer trains one time at Los Angeles Union Station). Cost would be around $28 - $45 depending on which train you took.

Please use the Amtrak website to get a current quote. Bumbershoot notes that the typical metered taxi fare from the train station to DLR runs about $13. (Thanks, Molly! )

*Super Shuttle Coupon Code UYR59 for $3 off per person (thanks, DizMe!). To get the discount for each person in your party, you have to book each separately, so use this code when the first fare isn't enormous compared to 2nd, 3rd, etc.! Will work best from LAX to DLR and John Wayne to DLR (and vice versa).

As a last note, I know there are many other options out there and feel free to chime in with any bus, van, train, etc. with which you have had excellent service!

All right! We have needed this desperately. Moderators, this needs to be a sticky.

Good idea!


One problem with Grayline. The experience involving where the bus first stops from LAX has been very different, even within days of experiences. With me on Oct 9, they stopped at DLH first, did the money/ticket taking, then stopped next at GCH. Just a few days later, mrmnmustard's bus from LAX stopped at GCH first, THEN went on to DLH. Others have experienced various versions of their own, some stopping at offsite hotels first, etc etc.

So I suggest you add a big huge "this varies and you'll want to ask the driver or just see what happens" thing to the explanation. At least when coming in from LAX.



Also, with Super Shuttle's fare quotes, make it very obvious that you are choosing *hotel name*, instead of zipcode, to get those quotes. I was playing around with it earlier today, and while Burbank and LGB don't show a difference using that, LAX and SNA had a very big difference when using zipcode vs hotel name. Didn't check ONT today, but I remember that there was a difference...long explanation short, use the hotel name for the fare quote.


Lastly, taxi from the Anaheim Amtrak station is about $13 by meter to the DLH.

Thank you for all the work.

We did find something GREAT a few weeks ago.

A one-way car rental from Avis. Pickup at LAX, drop off at Avis on Katella. It's only $37 - taxes and everything!

We have not been lucky with a return rental so we will take the shuttle.

Has anyone experienced the DE being full? We have to get picked up at terminal 2 and I'm worried that we'll have to wait for an empty bus (there's 3 of us). I've always rented a car at LAX but I have been other places where we had to wait a long time for a shuttle that had room.
Is the DE the recommended shuttle if staying at HoJo?

Just wanted to add that you can book (and pay) ahead on supershuttle's website. I was just checking pricing for our March trip (should we opt to fly) a couple of days ago. There's only two of us going but it was $10 for the first person and only $8 for the second when booked ahead. It's not much but $4 (RT) is $4.

Another LGB option ~

Great post! Don't forget "my guy" Ron ~ his business card says VIP Service Kim Sontha Transportation. The number is 562-396-8106 (company number) OR the number where he has always answered is 562-895-6713. We've had a Toyota Highlander & Lexus SUV for our past trips. I believe his rate is $45 each way but I give him $50 ~ he's a great guy - he's from somewhere in S. Asia ~ Cambodia maybe so he has a great accent but he's a little tricky to understand - but he understands me - he's always there waiting for us at LGB and waiting for us at our hotel when it's time to go back to the airport.

I think they're based in Long Beach.

Others have experienced various versions of their own, some stopping at offsite hotels first, etc etc.

So I suggest you add a big huge "this varies and you'll want to ask the driver or just see what happens" thing to the explanation. At least when coming in from LAX.


Also, with Super Shuttle's fare quotes, make it very obvious that you are choosing *hotel name*, instead of zipcode, to get those quotes. I was playing around with it earlier today, and while Burbank and LGB don't show a difference using that, LAX and SNA had a very big difference when using zipcode vs hotel name. Didn't check ONT today, but I remember that there was a difference...long explanation short, use the hotel name for the fare quote.


Lastly, taxi from the Anaheim Amtrak station is about $13 by meter to the DLH.
Great suggestions, I've added them in!

We did find something GREAT a few weeks ago.

A one-way car rental from Avis. Pickup at LAX, drop off at Avis on Katella. It's only $37 - taxes and everything!

We have not been lucky with a return rental so we will take the shuttle.
I toyed with adding some car rental information, but that decided there's so much info involved, it probably deserves to be it's own thread! (Want to take it on? ) That is a great deal for anyone looking for a one-way rental right now.

There's only two of us going but it was $10 for the first person and only $8 for the second when booked ahead. It's not much but $4 (RT) is $4.
Discounts are always great, even if $4/person!

I believe his rate is $45 each way but I give him $50 ~ he's a great guy - he's from somewhere in S. Asia ~ Cambodia maybe so he has a great accent but he's a little tricky to understand - but he understands me - he's always there waiting for us at LGB and waiting for us at our hotel when it's time to go back to the airport.

I think they're based in Long Beach.
There's lots of great alternatives out there to the "major players". I'm glad you mentioned someone you liked working with. I think that will make this thread really useful when someone is looking for something specific. I hope lots of people chime in with good deals and good experiences.

Thanks for the compliments, everyone! This was fun to put together and I'm glad a few other people are finding it useful. Amusingly, I was able to put it to use myself last night. We ended up changing our flights slightly for our trip in December (are those Southwest prices amazing, or what! ) and I used the info to figure out whether the LAX or John Wayne options would save us the most money.

The code is more what you'd call guidelines than actual rules

Wow, this is terrific information!! Thanks so much!!

I would like to add that if you wish to use SuperShuttle, you can use discount codes to reserve ahead online for a better rate. I use UYR59 to get $3 off per person each way between SNA and the resort, so the $10 price is knocked down to $7 each way. There is one annoying thing about using that code, which is that the system no longer automatically gives you the discount for each person when you book for a party, so you have to book each one separately. That's actually pretty easy, as the information is all saved and you just have to go back and change the name, but it is still annoying to have to do it. There are other codes that give you $2 off each way so if you don't want to book separately, try those. You can find them here: http://www.retailmenot.com/view/supershuttle.com

Here is a site that has information about flat rates for Anaheim Yellow Cab taxis, with various airport prices listed http://www.anaheim-yellowcab.com/
