    We are taking a cruise from Vancouver BC to San Diego on the Disney Wonder in August 2016. We want to spend a few days in Disneyland at the end of our cruise before flying home to Vancouver BC. Is there a shuttle from Sand Diego pier to Disneyland Resort?

    Ahoy Barbara!
    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I love to hear that you are taking advantage of having the Disney Wonder so close to home and cruising down the gorgeous Pacific Coast! I'm also excited that you want to add-on a few days at the Happiest Place on Earth during its dazzling Disneyland Diamond Celebration! It looks like your crew will make it just in the nick of time. What a magical ending to your Disney Cruise vacation!
    When my family visited Disneyland a couple of years ago, we began our vacation in San Diego and then made our way up to Anaheim in a rental car. It took us about two hours with very little traffic (we left around 10:00 a.m.).  I did a little research for you and found out there is an Avis Rent A Car location near the port that does pick-up cruise passengers. There is also one not too far from Disneyland. If you decide to go this route, you will want to double check on their policies on one-way rentals, and if they will provide a shuttle from their West Patella Ave. location in Anaheim to your hotel. The other option I found for you is hopping on an Amtrak train at the Santa Fe Depot Station and taking the scenic route up the Pacific Coast to Anaheim. From what I researched, the Pacific Surfliner route is about two hours long, and they do provide a shuttle to Disneyland once you arrive in Anaheim. The Santa Fe Depot does not appear to be too far from the port (about 0.6 of a mile) so you can take a taxi if you don't want to haul your luggage on foot.
    My family is looking forward to our second trip to Disneyland this year for the Diamond Anniversary Celebration! We can't wait to see Sleeping Beauty Castle dripping with glistening diamonds and the brilliant Paint the Night Parade! I hope your adventure with Disney will be both land and sea, Barbara! Thank again for stopping by and happy planning!
