    What is the best way to get to Disney from the Long Beach municipal airport? Maybe the only way (other than renting a car) is taxi? If so, any idea how much it'll cost?

    You could do a shuttle, I think it is about the same as a taxi though.. For some reason it is really expensive to do that. I would say around $30. or $40.

    We used a driver recommended by another Diser, he picked us up at LGB took us to our hotel (Desert Inn) and then took us back to the airport for our flight home ~ $40 each time, 3 adults 2 kids ~ Toyota Sequoia one way and a Lexus SUV the other.

    Super shuttle runs from there. I've heard it's very reliable. With tax for 2 people it's about the same as a taxi, so if you have more than 2 probably a taxi would be a better deal.

    We used a taxi a couple years ago, and it was $40 incl. tip. I'm sure with gas prices, the rates have increased a bit.

    We have found its cheaper to just rent a car. You can rent one for about $12 a day. The drive is easy- just one road all the way to the park.

    This depends on how many people you have in your party, for us we couldn't fit in a compact or economy car (usually the cheaper ones) because we have more than 5 people and renting a minivan or suv is a lot more than it would be to take a taxi, so it just depends on how many people you need to take. I am also flying into LGB, the last time I went (last year) they had some taxis that were vans and I *think* they were the same price.

    Thanks everyone! Sounds like all the options are there and I'll just have to figure out which one will work the best for our trip.:thumbsup2

    I know if you look under long beach airport, they have transportation info it states 40.00 flat fee to DL I also called the taxi company so confirm? If you have more than 2 people I think taxi would be cheaper. Maybe quicker to, I don't know
