Check transportation off the “to do” list for our summer Disneyland and Legoland vacation!
We secured round-trip transfers from LAX to the Disneyland Resort. Using Disneyland’s transfers, that have a fee, were only going to be an option for getting us to Disneyland, but not back to the airport as the buses start their runs later in the day than we needed to catch our flight home. Super Shuttle was another option that we explored. Sharing the ride and multiple stops were cons especially since there was a charge for this service. (Disney’s Magical Express’ stops don’t seem so bad when it’s free!) Then, we discovered Lansky Limousine Service or DK’s Livery Service because of a comment on the Williams Family Blog.
I went to the website and filled in the form for a free quote. I received an email within minutes and after one phone call we had our transportation all arranged including round-trip transportation to and from Legoland.
The round-trip fee to get from LAX to the Disneyland Resort is $180 and includes taxes, gratuity, and a stop at a grocery store. We will be greeted at baggage claim and directed to our transportation.
When I called, I talked to Daniel, who is the “D” in the “DK.” One question I had was how long does it take to go from Disneyland Resort in Anaheim to Legoland in Carlsbad. The 72 mile journey will take about 90 minutes. Having that information helped us to plan for a timely pick-up at both Disneyland and Legoland.
Also, when talking to Daniel, he said that a sedan or town car would not be comfortable for three people and luggage. So, he is sending us an SUV. He also asked if we needed special child restraints that are required for children under 8. I told Daniel that we were a party of two adults and a 12 year old, so now child restraints needed.
Items left on the “to do” list for our summer vacation include making dining reservations, including any special dining experiences and any tours. Both of those have to wait until the 60 day mark which is two months away.
