    what type of transportation is available inside disneyland resort to get to different areas. i'm taking a senior who needs to get around the park who has difficulty in walking long distances and doesn't want a scooter.

    Hiya, Peter, and thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    First off, I’m so excited to see that you’ll be spending the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort! It’s my favorite time of the year to visit the theme parks – you’re going to make so many special memories.

    I’m also happy to report that there are many different kinds of transportation offered within the Disneyland Resort, starting with the Resort Tram service, which runs from the Mickey & Friends and Pixar Pals parking structures to the Main Entrance Esplanade between Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Bus transportation is also available if you choose to park at the Toy Story Parking Area. If you happen to be staying at the Disneyland Hotel or Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, another nearby option is to ride the Disneyland Monorail, which you can board from the Downtown Disney District station. This scenic ride will take you directly into Tomorrowland in Disneyland Park. So, you’ll need to have a theme park ticket and reservation for Disneyland Park in order to ride the Monorail. These trains run approximately every 10 minutes.

    Once inside Disneyland Park, the Disneyland Railroad is a great way to start your day, and a handy way to get around the park. Trains arrive every 5 to 10 minutes throughout the day, and travel clockwise around the park. The full park tour runs about 18 minutes, and is the perfect way to rest weary feet while still soaking up the magic. Another fun option at Disneyland Park is the vintage vehicles found on Main Street, U.S.A. You and your Disney crew can ride one of these vehicles from one end of Main Street, U.S.A. to the other. My children adore the 2-story Omnibus. We love sitting on the second story for great views along the way. You can also experience a horse-drawn street car, a jitney, and a fire engine. Board these classic cars from Town Square in City Hall, or Central Plaza in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle.

    Over in Disney California Adventure Park, hop aboard the Red Car Trolley, which offers a scenic ride from the entrance of the park all the way back to Hollywood Land. Stops include Buena Vista Street (near the Main Entrance), Carthay Circle (across from Carthay Circle Restaurant), Hollywood Boulevard (near the Disney Animation building), and Sunset Boulevard (near the Hyperion Theater). 

    If your senior decides they’d prefer some assistance getting around, they can always check on the availability of an Electric Conveyance Vehicle (ECV) or wheelchair over at the Stroller Rentals building, which is located to the right of the Disneyland Park Main Entrance. 

    I hope this information helps you and your Disney pals enjoy a comfortable visit to the Happiest Place on Earth, Peter! Please stop by with any additional questions… we’re all EARs!

    Wishing you merry magic,
