    Hi! We are planning a trip to Disneyland with a 5 year old and a 1 year old in May. We are staying at the Disneyland Hotel. Can you recommend the least hassle/best value transportation from SNA, also where to rent bed rails?

    Hi, Shari!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m glad to hear you’ll be visiting “The Happiest Place on Earth” this spring and staying at the Disneyland Hotel. The rooms there are so spacious and many have a pull-out couch in addition to two queen beds. The furnishings are chic and modern with a touch of retro Disneyland charm, and the etched wooden headboards are especially pixie-dusted. With the flip of a switch, you can enjoy an in-room music and “fireworks” show!

    For a convenient way to get from John Wayne Airport (SNA) to the Disneyland Resort, you can use a shared shuttle van service, which can be arranged in advance. Another economical option for families is Disneyland Resort Express, a private service that offers large, comfortable tour buses. The buses run continuously and no reservation is required. From SNA, Disneyland Resort Express is currently $17 one way/$27 round-trip for an adult, $14 one way/$18 round-trip for a child (ages 3-11), and kids under 3 ride for free. Visit the Disneyland Resort website for more information about transportation

    Every room at the Disneyland Hotel comes with a portable crib (Pack ‘n’ Play), but complimentary bed rails are no longer available due to the thicker mattresses that were added to the rooms during the hotel’s recent renovation. City Stroller Rentals ( may have some available for rent that will accommodate the new bedding, however.

    I hope this information is helpful, Shari, and that you have a wonderful visit to the Disneyland Resort. Please write back with any other questions you may have as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted vacation!

    Wishing you magic,
