Planning on a trip to DL with three kids (first time). I originally thought the SoCal city pass was a great option until I factored in the cost of transportation to SD Zoo, SeaWorld and Universal. I also had planned to upgrade the 3 day hopper to a 4 day, but read here that I cannot do that. So, my question is, if I go with the city pass, what is the best option for transportation for afamily of five? (aged 13 and under). We are staying at the Paradise Pier for 3 nights and HoJos for 4 nights. I heard it is best to avoid DL on the weekends, so had planned on Mon-Wed or Tu -Thur, with the remaining time for the other attractions that come with the city pass. But then realized how long it takes to get to SD and don't think my kids can do the long bus/train rides three days in a row. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Should I pass on the city pass and just stick with DL plus maybe one SD attraction? We were leaning towards just the zoo and Universal, but have read some negative comments on Universal.
Thanks in advance!
