    I read there is a Disneyland shuttle from the nearby airports (LAX & OC John Wayne). Is this the best way to travel from the airport to the Disneyland Resort? Do they have seats that accommodate toddlers who normally ride in car seats?

    Hello, Nancy! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for your question!

    There are a few ways to get from local airports to the Disneyland Resort, including the Disneyland Resort Express shuttle bus. I have used this service a few times to get to the Disneyland Resort from John Wayne Airport, but the bus also picks up at Los Angeles International Airport. The Disneyland Resort Express is operated by Coach USA and there is a fee to ride. While reservations aren't required, I suggest making them in advance as it's easier to have your vouchers handy when you are ready to ride. If you are traveling with young children, the Disneyland Resort Express is the easiest and most convenient transportation option because you don't need to bring any child seats along. Children can safely sit in the seat next to you or on your lap during your journey. If you are staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel, your hotel is usually one of the first stops.

    Check the operating schedule to make sure the pick up times for your arrival and departure are convenient. If you are flying into John Wayne Airport, the bus departs every hour on the half hour. Since this airport is rather small, I have found that I can usually deplane, pick up my luggage at baggage claim, and head outside to catch the bus all within 20 minutes!

    I have also taken a Lyft from the airport. This service was extremely fast and affordable, but we did have to bring along our own car seat to install. On this particular trip, we had a very early departure flight and needed to leave for the airport before the Disneyland Resort Express schedule started, so a taxi, Lyft, or car service were our only options.

    I hope this helps! Please stop by again if you have any other questions!
