    Does anyone know if you can take the DL transfer if you are NOT staying at DL? We want to go play for the day before out flight out that night. Thinking we may just use the disney transfers, but not sure we can do this. :confused3

    We rented a car from Enterprise. They are right there at the pier. Our Gran is a cast member and we have been told that they honor employee entrance at the park even if you work at Disney World. Here's hoping that's true so it won't matter what time we arrive.

    I'd give them a call. I called today (ordering and paying for) one transfer to the airport and the other three transfers to the Grand Californian. $30 per person on all four transfers. We were told to purchase the transfer from the hotel to the airport for the three of us that are staying from Disney Transfer. I've not quite figured that one out yet! Maybe someone can help us both with that!:yay:

    A good portion of the time the room service guys don't even ask you to sign a charge slip. It seems to me like they did this more consistently when we first started cruising but the last couple they haven't even had a slip for me to sign. It is really more of a convenience thing for us.

    d Morning, Happy Cruisers!


    That's been our experience too. An envelope of singles are so much easier for us.

    According to our TA Disneyland does not have Magical Express like WDW has. she recommended Super Shuttle to get to the airport from the Grand Californian, where we are staying.

    On the Disneyland Dis thread others have recommended the Disneyland Resort Express.

    Which airport and how many people? A taxi to SNA is around $40 plus tip. Might be best for a family of four

    WE used the Disneyland Resort Express last Oct both from airport to DL and back to airport. We will not be using that again. They state that pickup at the airport is on the hour and half hour ending at 10:30 at night. We were waiting before 10 pm and called at 10:40 concerned that we had not seen the bus and that their advertisement is that 10:30 is the last pickup. We were told by dispatch that "they are on their way, it is a big airport and they will be at your stop soon." A bit after 11 pm the bus showed up. So, where was the 10 pm and 10:30 pm bus? Not explaination offered, just we are on our way and will get you there soon! Same on the return trip...on bus on the hour or half hour, but did show up at about 40 min after the hour.

    We will be using Super Shuttle from DL to the airport.

    I want to post an FYI re: the FE groups. I promise to limit this to one post & thank you for your patience.

    I have a life-threatening latex allergy. It is a STUPID allergy because latex is everywhere! In fact, DCL is the only cruise line where I can eat without an epi-pen or a hospital. Same with DLP & WDW, which do not use latex gloves.

    Anything rubber - rubber bands, pencil erasers, balloons, band-aids, squishy toys, and most foam - contains latex.

    Please feel free to disclude me from any FE exchange, if I am in your group.

    Again, sorry for the brief interruption...two months to go. YAY:cheer2:

    I sure we can all work around and be careful what to give you guys and avoid troubles with your allergy. I know latex is everywhere, but if you tell us (as you did) what we should not give you, then I'm sure everything will be fine.

    My research has found that you can purchase a taxi voucher for service to SNA from the Guest Services desk at the Grand Californian for less than the $40 dollars. Last time I checked, it was $32.00 for the voucher. The other Disney hotels probably have the voucher as well. This is what we plan to do. I have also read mixed review on the Express Bus Service, plus our flight is pretty early and I don't want to risk it trying a bus service.

    DH and I are flying out of LAX. WE are actually looking at Execucar. It would be about $72.

    We are flaying out of LAX too using Execucar. Rate for our family of 4 is $55. We used them last year and were really pleased with their service.

    Reposting for Brix.
    May I recommend Karmel shuttle service in California? Every time I've used them, they've been Johnny on the spot not only on time but early enough so the old lady didn't have time to panic. From Candy Cane Inn to SNA was around $20 each. We have also used them from CCI to San Pedro, LAX to San Pedro. & San Pedro to CCI. I found them here on the DIS on the Disneyland board.
