I was wary of ride share too (as you know I am wary of everything that is new) but it’s easy. You may be able to find a promo code for Lyft Pink. We got it free for a month with a promo and it provided discounts and free priority pickup for an XL vehicle in January at WDW. We used it for airport transfers and to/from WDW locations for an offsite portion of the trip and it was quite convenient. In April we paid the $9.99 monthly fee to use it again for airport transfers. In the app you can see the vehicle assigned to you on the map and the license plate #, make and model. It’s easier than G+ and ILLs so you will be fine if you go that route.
We have used Anaheim Towncar (JAG Transportation) all 3 trips to DL. They are fantastic. In February when our flight was cancelled for the early morning, I emailed and called them and left a message. They assured me that a driver would be there to pick us up, no problem after what was now an evening arrival.
In February, we were at the Grand Californian. We were in line for security at about 6:40, security opened at 7:00 as I remember. That put us near the front of the line to go through the tapstiles for DL.
Woo Hoo! Sounds like a great trip!
Last summer we stayed at PPH and used the special entrance. At that time it was brand new so not many people were using it. We arrived about 20-30 minutes before EE and there were about 25 or so people ahead of us. Personally, I like being able to start in Paradise Pier so for me this privilege was a huge perk.
You know what — it actually worked out pretty well! It spits you out in a spot that is best for rope dropping Pixar Pier, but you can get to Avengers Campus pretty easily as well. We left our hotel at about 7:10, were lined up at the entrance by 7:18am, and were in the park by 7:30am for early entry.
Ok, Delta isn’t too bad. You follow the red arrow in the map below along the terminal sidewalk and then cross Sky Way to the “LAX-It” rideshare area (red X). (You can also take the internal shuttle that loops around.) They have numbered stops for Uber, Lyft, and others. You reserve a ride in any of those apps and you will be assigned a pick-up location. Then away you go.
I’ve walked from Terminal 4 and 5 before and that is the furthest from the rideshare area (called “LAX-It”) and even that wasn’t horrible with just one carry-on sized bag. If you have more than one bag or one very large one, I would consider a car service. A car service can pick you up at the Terminal 3 Arrivals curb.
On your return trip from Anaheim, your rideshare driver will take you all the way to the Terminal 3 Departures curb, so I always recommend rideshare on the return trip.
Wondrous Journeys, since I booked the trip I’ve been checking everyday to get an idea of what day fireworks are included. They have been listed everyday! Is this because it’s summer? We will only be there Mon-Thurs, is there a chance those nights will all just be the projections?
I’m honestly fine either way, just would like to know if we should plan for a certain night?
I think of those nights, Monday is most likely to have fireworks, but probably none of them. By the time school starts getting back in session, they will cut back on nightly entertainment. Crossing my fingers for you!
If fireworks are running, check out World of Color. I haven’t seen One but I really love WoC in general.
