I recently saw a blog post from a couple, planning their first trip to disneyland. Asking what is the best way to get from the Los Angeles Airport to Paradise Pier Hotel at the Disneyland Resort. Should they take the Disneyland Shuttle or one of the private shuttle companies to make this trip, “which would be best”? I decided that I should chime in with my two cents worth, as I have used the Super Shuttle service on more than one occasion. Each time I used the Super Shuttle it was from the Orange County Airport and not the Los Angeles Airport. The greatest reason for flying into Orange County Airport was really very simple it’s only a few mile and about 14 minutes away from Disneyland. Lax is about 32 miles away from Disneyland and take about 35 minutes to get there. As everyone knows when your traveling to Disneyland you don’t want to waste time traveling on the highway when you can be walking ” Right down the middle of Main Street USA”.
The very first time I used the Super Shuttle, I had made all of my arrangements through the Disneyland Travel. But you can call them direct to make your Super Shuttle reservation. The fees can be as low as $10.00 per person, or as much as $67.00 for a group of 9 people. And at Orange County Airport it’s as easy as just walking out the front door of the airport walking across the street to the shuttle parking hub and approch the Super Shuttle Driver to see if he is the one with your reservation. Returning to the airport is just as easy, they call you the night before to remind you of your pick up time the following day, and they are there on time and ready to get you back to the airport in plenty of time for your flight.
The drivers are freiendly and helpful and often will chat with the kids about their trip to Disneyland adding to the excitement.
So for me it’s the Super Shuttle service that has worked every time I’ve used it, and will be the service I use every time I need it.
Here is a link to their website.
See ya in the park
The folks at Disney have finally opened the vault and will be re-releasing this classic film to thier Disney film fans. This 1937 film is the one that started it all with it’s world debut at the Carthay Circle Theatre in Los Angeles.
The rest is history as they say, and I should remind you that the Disney Imagineers and Disneyland Resort will be restoring that era in the renovation of the entrance to California Adventure park over the next few years.
