Yes, another limo question....

I've searched this board a million times for limo opinions. I've found a bunch of threads and I still can't decide. We've decided to surprise the kids with a limo on the LA portion of our upcoming trip. I need a limo from SNA to DL and then from DL to LAX. We want a clean, safe, stylish limo for the rides. I tried calling American Limo for a quote and they never got back to me. Anyone that has recently used a limo service, any recommendations? I see Karmel for the shuttle, but not necessarily for limo. I hear of Harold's, but there is no website. Obviously, we want something safe and clean. Sorry. I have been reviewing these boards and I know the transportation threads and WDW vet threads post about every other day. Unfortunately, I still can't figure out the best choice for limo service! Anyone that has recently used a limo service and has any insights, I'd love to hear. Your comments are appreciated!!!!! Thanks!

We used Tony the Limo King last time and he was great. We called him when we had our bags (at LAX) and he met us right out front. He even gave us a free upgrade to the red stretch Hummer. It was for my DD10's birthday and she had specifically asked about that one and was upset when we said no, it would be a plain limo. Needless to say she was beyond excited when he showed up in it. There was no problem picking us up at 6am to head back to LAX either. Great service. www.tonythelimoking.com

Would you mind sharing what that cost?

We are using Harolds on our upcoming trip because of all the good reviews and recommendations I received on here. On our advice, a friend of my dh's used him just a few days ago so I'm curious to hear how that went. They will be back next week.

If you wanted to call him, his number is 714-290-1692 or his email is haroldslimo@aol.com. He quoted us $95 each way from LAX to our hotel near Disney. A shuttle would have been $64 so it's so worth it in my opinion. We're surprising our littles too!

I have used SafeRide Transport multiple times, both Limo & Town Car and have been happy with the service. If you tell them you have Kids, they will often put some small treats in the Limo (juice, lollipops, etc).

They have online booking

Hi,

We've used Sunny's Transportation twice now from SNA to GCH. http://www.affordabletowncarservices.com/

I don't know what he charges to go to LAX. We were charged $55 each way from SNA to GCH (plus we tipped him ).

We were very happy both times. His car was clean and he shows up early! He even made a quick stop to 7-11 for us on the way to GCH. I don't know if you need them, but he does provide free car seats for the kids too. (We didn't need them, but thought I'd mention it).

Can you get a limo to take you from somewhere on property to somewhere else that is still on DL? Like for example, DLR to GCH?

Do you mean from the park to the hotel? It is walkable in under 5 minutes.

I thought that might be the case. One of the best things about DL is how close everything is. You save so much time over WDW.

ITA! I used Sunny's Transportation in October and was really happy. My cousin is there now, and on my recommendation used him as well. She said she was standing at the wrong place for pick up at SNA but he was VERY nice and accommodating.

Taking a limo from DHL to GCH would be like taking one from the Yacht to the Beach Club in WDW!
