Getting Around Anaheim-Disneyland

The best way to get around Disneyland is on foot, but the best way to get around Anaheim is by car. Once inside the resort, all of Disneyland's attractions -- including those found in Disney's California Adventure and Downtown Disney -- are within walking distance of one another. If you tire of walking, then hitch a ride on the Disneyland Railroad or the Disneyland Monorail. Getting there is also a breeze: Shuttles are available from Orange County's John Wayne Airport (SNA) and from the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). If you bring or rent a car, you'll find there is plenty of parking at Disneyland. Just prepare for steep fees.

On Foot

All of the must-see Disney attractions can be accessed easily on foot. Stop by one of the many visitors centers found throughout the parks and pick up a map.

Car Disneyland itself is very pedestrian friendly. But if you're planning on staying in downtown Anaheim, taking in a game at the Angels Stadium or visiting any of the city's other things to do, we recommend a car. Rental agencies are available at both Orange County's John Wayne Airport (SNA) and the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). But be warned that Disneyland charges a hefty $15 a day to park.
Anaheim Public Transportation

The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) operates a bus system, as well as a train system. The buses offer 77 routes and 6,200 stops in Orange County. The train system is less extensive, with just three lines of Metrolink trains that make 11 stops throughout the OC in places like Anaheim, Santa Ana and Oceanside. Ticket prices and hours of operation vary.

Disneyland Public Transportation

Disneyland operates shuttles to and from the nearby John Wayne Airport and the Los Angeles International Airport. Once inside the park, use of both the Disneyland Monorail (which runs between Downtown Disney and Disneyland's Tomorrowland) and the Disneyland Railroad (which runs a loop between Main Street U.S.A. and Tomorrowland in the main park) are included with your admission ticket. Transportation around Anaheim is provided by the Anaheim Resort Transit (ART) System, which services Disneyland and the main hotel areas. ART offers day passes for about $4, three-day passes for $10 and five-day passes for $16.
