    Hi! I chose an extra attraction to go to the San Diego zoo. Does anyone know the times, the day and place the shuttle leaves and brings us back? Thank you so much for any help possible!!

    Hiya, Britney! 

    Oh boy! I can tell you have a magical Southern California vacation planned. My family and I have loved experiencing the many amazing destinations available around the Disneyland Resort. There’s so much to see and do, we seem to find something new every time we travel to California. 

    It seems you have added a San Diego Zoo excursion to your Disneyland Resort Vacation Package. The day before your tour to San Diego, you may call the tour operator to set up the pickup time at your hotel. Their number will be included in your packet when you check in at your Disneyland Resort Hotel or Good Neighbor Hotel. The operators of the tour will pick you up from your hotel in the morning to take you to their transportation terminal. There you will board a motorcoach to the San Diego Zoo. Your motorcoach driver will inform you of the return time and location after your visit to the zoo. It is normally around 5:00 PM at the same location where you are dropped off in the morning.

    We have loved our visits to the San Diego Zoo. Spending a day enjoying the beautiful Balboa Park and the amazing array of animals makes for great memories. The most memorable experience for me was watching the polar bears splash and play in the huge Polar Bear Plunge. I recommend wearing very comfortable walking shoes. There’s a lot of ground to cover!

    After you return to the Disneyland Resort area, you may want to enjoy a relaxing evening. Some of my favorite spots to visit include Salt & Straw in the Downtown Disney District or Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar at the Disneyland Hotel.

    I hope you have a magical time during your Disneyland Resort vacation, Britney! Please stop by the Disney Parks Moms Panel again with any other questions you may have.
