    I am flying in to San Diego for a job interview on Monday, and will fly back to Utah on Tuesday. I was going to be good and leave my season pass here in Utah, my kids would kill me if I went to Disneyland without them, but just in case I happen to get done really early and have nothing to do, how long would the drive be to the park?

    I am going to slip the season pass into my purse while the kids are sleeping.

    Hi!
    It totally depends what time you make the drive.
    In a perfect world without traffic, about 1 hr. 15-30 min. With traffic, at least 2 hours. Hope this helps a little. :)

    We do this every year in May. Fly into SD (I have a yearly conference in SD) and drive to DL. I agree it takes approximately 90" from downtown SD.

    [​IMG] <font face="Comic Sans MS"><font color=#6600CC>I know that the station is about 10 minutes away. You can take a taxi, or if you're in a nearby hotel, you can call the hotel to send a shuttle to pick you up.

    Mary Jo,
    Are you sure the Disney Hotels will send a shuttle? We were just at the GC and we asked the valets if there was still an Amtrak shuttle and they told us no. :( You could call a taxi.

    We are planning another trip up to the GC in May and wanted to take the train ( a surprise trip for our neice and nephew). I'm hoping there is a shuttle available. Please post if you know for sure. Thanks!

    Enjoy life and great vacations.
    Chris
