    Orlando to Anaheim, via WDW International Program

    OK, so after I finish the WDW international program, the US government allows me to stay in America for 30 days starting from the day my placement at Epcot officially ends - and then I'm booted out if I dont make my own way out!

    So, anyway, it has always been a very powerful ambition to visit Disneyland. I would like to spend 5-7 days there, and plan to travel there almost immediately after I leave WDW, and Florida, behind. Considering I haven't even got my placement in Florida finalised yet, it may seem rather silly and overambitious to be discussing travel arrangements a further 12 months down the line, but how would I best get to Anaheim from Orlando?

    The idea of driving there is very daunting to me, but I am fifteen and after 12 months of driving in Florida it should be a lot more easier for me to take on, but it still seems a heck of a journey. It is a lot cheaper then flying - but is it worth the cheapness? I mean, 41 hours (according to MapQuest, direct Lake Buena Vista to Anaheim is a lot of driving, that is a straight journey, that doesnt include accomadation, food etc. A five hour flight from Orlando to Los Angeles sounds much better. But what would you guys do, and what you advise me, a Brit, who by then will be 19, to do?

    Fly. But fly into John Wayne Airport instead of LAX if at all possible since it is only a mere 13 miles away from Disneyland. That is way too long a drive and mapquest 41 hour trip is not taking stops or traffic into consideration. In fact it would probably even out cost wise and would overall be mor comfortable to fly. Good luck.

    Delta, United Airlines & American Airlines offers a trip from MCO to LAX (non-stop) for about $134 (Just go on priceline.com). With breakfast, dinner and possibly lunch in addition to all the gas you are going to need to get & hotel fees, it is most likely going to be cheaper to take the flight.

    NOte that the $134 figure was for a flight on November 2nd 2005 (so it will be a little higher or lower depending on when you would be leaving). As to the John Wayne Airport, the closest one that offers non-stop trips there is Atlanta (and Atlanta-JWA is much more expensive than MCO-LAX). Even a multi-stop flight from MCO to John Wayne Airport is much more than MCO-LAX.

    And once you get to LAX, use the Disneyland Express, California's version of the Magical Express.
