    Giggles with the TranStar TripPlanner

    When asked to get me from LAX to Disneyland...

    Depart...
    Lax in El Segundo
    Then...
    1. Go to: Lax, Red Bus Stop Sign On Ctr Island
    2. Board: Airport Bus Lax-Anaheim Line/Anaheim at 1:00 pm (next bus 2:00 pm)
    3. Fare: Pay $16.00
    4. Get Off: 1415 S Manchester Blvd at 1:45 pm
    Then...
    1. Go to: N.W. Corner Of Harbor Blvd & Santa Ana Frwy
    2. Board: Octa Bus #043/Costa Mesa S/B at 1:54 pm (next bus at 2:06 pm)
    3. Fare: Pay $1.25
    4. Get Off: Harbor Blvd & Ball Rd at 2:03 pm
    Then...
    1. Go to: S.E. Corner Of Ball Rd & S Harbor Blvd, Disney Way
    2. Board: Mta Bus #460/Downtown L.A. at 2:10 pm (next bus at 2:40 pm)
    3. Fare: Pay $1.25
    4. Get Off: Manchester Av & Harbor Blvd at 2:13 pm
    Arrive... Disneyland in Anaheim

    Total Fare: $18.50

    Hrmmz I think I'll save myself the extra $2.50 and skip the walking up to the freeway, catching a bus to Ball Rd and another back to the bus terminal...

    EDIT: NO WAIT! Where's 1415 S Manchester Blvd?


    Here's a thought...
    If people are dropped off at the bus terminal on the Eastern side of the resort and they want to walk across the central plaza to Downtown Disney and their Disney Hotel, will they have to pass Disney's security checkpoints?

    (Not that I would take a bus, this was just for fun.)

    If your are going to walk through the central plaza, yes.

    But wait, that is some really strange directions. Manchester is south of Ball, So your going South bound to Ball.

    It looks like 1415 is the address of the Howard Johnson's on Harbor and Manchester, across the street from the park.

    It is strange.

    The last two steps are weird enough - it says to walk to the corner of Habor and SF Fwy, then catch a bus not one block away which takes you back to where you start. The funny thing is the AirBus they mention actually stops at all the major hotels anyway XD silly computers.

    If you were feeling realllllly cheap you could catch the free shuttle from LAX to the Green line and shoot east to Norwalk and catch the Anaheim bus (470?) that wanders all over Orange county via bits of the 5 to the bus terminal on Harbor.

    I have the weirdest hobbies....
