    Hi, we are planning a one week vacation to Los Angeles and we wish to visit Disneyland for one day. What is the best way to travel to Disneyland from Santa Monica and get back to LA airport the next day We are 5 persons and we won’t have access to a car.

    Greetings, Vincent, thank you for consulting planDisney!

    What a wonderful vacation you are planning in sunny California, and I am especially happy to read that you are planning a visit to the Disneyland Resort during the Disney 100 Celebration of The Walt Disney Company, congratulations!

    Vincent, I took the liberty of performing a bit of research online and found the website, rome2rio quite helpful with transportation options from Santa Monica to the Disneyland Resort. The website lists the various modes of transportation, the travel distance and time, and the approximate cost for your consideration based on your travel style and budget. At the end of your vacation, to head to Los Angeles International Airport, I would recommend referring to the Disneyland Resort – Transportation Guide for suggestions for great peace of mind.

    Kindly link the valid Disneyland Resort theme park tickets for all in your travel party to your Disney account via the My Disneyland planning tab on the top right of the website once you have signed in. From this point, you will need to secure advance Disneyland Resort – Theme Park Reservations for each member of your travel party, as this is the method of visiting the theme parks at this time.

    Download the Disneyland Mobile App to manage your plans before and during your visit with such options as adding the Disney Genie+ service to save time waiting in lines offering a Lightning Lane entrance, enjoying the convenience of Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering and much more! Plus, if you purchase the Disney Genie+ service, you will enjoy unlimited Disney PhotoPass digital downloads from your day, including the fun Magic Shots (subject to availability and change).

    Consider a stay on the property to enjoy the convenience and amenities with a Disneyland Resort - Special Offer or Discount where you will also enjoy many benefits as a Guest at a Disneyland Resort hotel.

    Vincent, it was my pleasure assisting you today and I hope this information will be helpful in your planning. Please stop by planDisney for more first-hand tips and advice, thank you!

    Au revoir, from a fellow Canadian Disney fan!
