What to do when you get there: PixieDust will plan it for you:

Disneyland Transportation

Airport Transfers

There are several options for traveling to and from hotel/airport:

Minivan Shuttle

  • These may be shared or private and should be booked and paid for in advance
  • You will likely be given a voucher to use for both trips to and from the hotel to airport
  • Instructions will be provided on how to contact your shuttle provider for pick up upon booking a reservation

Disneyland Resort Express Bus

  • A comfortable coach travelling from ONLY Santa Ana (SNA) and Los Angeles (LAX) airports to Anaheim
  • Easy to find pick up area at each airport
  • Should be booked and paid for in advance
  • Will stop at ALL hotels of the guests on board the bus, therefore not as direct as a private or shared shuttle
  • You will likely be given a voucher to use for both trips to and from the hotel to airport

Taxi

  • A taxi is a quick and efficient option to a shuttle or a bus
  • As you depart the airport, locate the taxi stand or taxi courtesy phone. Indicate the number of people in your party and amount of baggage
  • One way price from SNA-Anaheim area hotels is US$40-45 *This is the SAME PRICE as 2 adults (1 child per paying adult rides FREE) would pay for the Disneyland Resort Express
  • One way price from LAX-Anaheim area hotels is US$125 *This is MORE than 2 adults (1 child per paying adult rides FREE) would pay for the Disneyland Resort Express

Limousines

  • Should be booked in advance
  • Flat rate charge is often not much more than a taxi
  • One way trip option

Monorail

  • The Monorail is the quickest means of transportation (13 minutes-an average person walking would take 25 minutes) between Tomorrowland (in Disneyland) and the far end of the Downtown Disney District
  • The Downtown Disney Monorail Station is a 5 minute walk from the 3 Disneyland Resort Hotels providing a quick hop to the far end of Disneyland and back again
  • Disneyland Resort Hotel guests may use their Extra Magic Hour for the Monorail allowing quick access into Tomorrowland
  • One of the main taxi pick-up areas is also a short walk from the Downtown Disney Monorail Station providing an easy escape to Good Neighbor Hotels and outlying restaurants

Disneyland Railroad

  • The 4 stops along this 1.2 mile (18 minute) ride circling Disneyland Park make it a relaxing and efficient way to travel between the four main corners of the Park

Stop #1 is on Main Street, U.S.A just beyond the Park gates

Stop #2 is in New Orleans Square

Stop #3 is in Mickey’s Toontown

Stop #4 is in Tomorrowland

Strollers

Strollers are abundant around the parks so don’t hesitate to bring yours along! Here are some important tips:

  • Airlines cannot charge you for checking a stroller through baggage nor to carry it on
  • Stroller rental is available at the entrance to Disneyland BUT will cost you $15 per day for one or $25 per day for two. These are single seater strollers
  • Strollers provide good storage for snacks, drinks and clothing (keep valuables on person or in a locker-see locker section)
  • Mark your stroller with something distinct for easy identification
  • Stroller parking is throughout the park…don’t be surprised if you return to the parking section and it isn’t where you left it! Staff will often re-arrange strollers…so have a closer look
  • Have your stroller folded and ready before boarding the Monorail or Disneyland Railroad
  • Don’t underestimate how much walking is involved…if your child still fits in the stroller, TAKE IT WITH YOU! (We took our "sit and stand" until our oldest child was 7!)
