What Is the Cheapest Way to Get From LAX to Disneyland?

In theory, public transit (bus) is your cheapest way to get from LAX to the Disneyland area.

It will cost you about $2 per person if you go this route.

You’ll take a shuttle to the bus terminal, and then off to Disneyland you go.

But we believe time is money and taking the long way to start your Disney vacation isn’t typically worth the cost savings for most families.

Skip the bus and try one of these other options instead.

Is the bus the cheapest way to get to Disneyland? Sure. But it’s not the recommended option.

Have you not looked into shuttle options in 10 years? In what reality is SuperShuttle $17? If you try to book through the website, it quotes no less that $96.

@Patty Holliday, The price they are quoting is not shared shuttle as it appears they are not offering that service at this time. That is for a private vehicle.

That was the pricing when the information was first posted in April- yes, we checked each one. But--- wow--- things changed! Thanks for pointing it out. We took out the pricing so readers could check for themselves rather than get incorrect information. Thank you again.
