Question How to Get to LegoLand the easiest???

Hello,

Can anyone tell me if there is a shuttle from the Disneyland Hotel to Legoland? Is my only option to getting there renting a car?

Thank you!

There is train service. The station is 7.5 miles away at Camp Pendelton. There is then bus service to the park (Train is called the Coastal),

Just noted on their website, that the are closed Tuesday and Wednesday during the fall/winter season.

It also appears Grayline may offer a Anaheim-Legoland package Southern California Gray Line - Sightseeing Tours
(but it might be cheaper to rent a car for one day only at DL and drive-there are several rental agencies that will pick you up at your DL area hotel)

I think renting a car would be the easiest. There are a number of hotels / motels on Harbor that have car rental agencies in the lobby. There's also an agency (I think it's National) at the edge of Downtown Disney if you're staying at a Disney hotel. The Disneyland resort is right next to the I-5 freeway, and Legoland is a straight shot about 2 miles off of the same freeway (although about 60 miles south!) If you've never been to Legoland before, it's hard to tell how long you'll need to tour. When my son was about 8, we were happy with a 5 hour visit, now that he's into all the robotics and Lego details we could stay there from opening to closing. If you're happier with a shorter visit, there's some very scenic southern Orange County beach towns just off the 5 that would be great for dinner. I'm thinking particularly of San Juan Capistrano and San Clemente. If you really don't want to drive, I think some people from the boards have taken similar Gray Line tours to Universal Studios and the San Diego Zoo from Disneyland with good success. Good luck!

I would also opt to drive myself. It would also, I believe, be the cheaper option.

If you take the bus tour or the train, you are bound by their schedule whereas, if you drive yourself, you can leave when you want AND see a bit of the area (like Karen said).

There is an Alamo rental car office in Downtown Disney as well as one just off of Disney property on Katella. There are also other rental agencies in the area.
