    Hi Michelle! Welcome to planDisney! Thanks so much for stopping by our happy website to ask us your planning question about the Disneyland Resort.

    Oh boy! It's almost time for your vacation at The Happiest Place on Earth! You're going to love staying at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa! There are a variety of public transportation options available from John Wayne Airport to the Disneyland Resort. Having used several different options, I prefer using Rideshare with Lyft to my Disneyland Resort Hotel. It has consistently been the most affordable, and the fastest travel method for our family from John Wayne Airport. 

    For car rental services, I recommend doing an internet search of car rental companies in the Disneyland Resort area. There are quite a few within a short walking distance or a quick Rideshare with Lyft. You might even find some car rental companies that offer a complimentary shuttle to their location. 

    You can view the Hours & Events Calendar to see what's happening on the dates you are visiting the theme parks. Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort offers so many treats and no tricks! I highly recommend checking out the attractions that have unique Halloween overlays, like Haunted Mansion Holiday.

    I'm wishing you a magical vacation filled with fun and special memories! I hope you will stop by planDisney again when you're ready to plan another Disney Parks vacation. You've got a friend in us, and we would love to help!

    See ya real soon!
