LA/Anaheim without a car-insane or merely inconvenient?

Jump to last reply

This may be theoretical, since I will quite likely decide that Orlando is cheaper and easier, but I am thinking about taking my son to California/Disneyland for his birthday. I'm figuring that airport transfers aren't rocket science, and there seem to plenty of fairly reasonable hotels in walking distance of Disney. We could even stay at Knott's Berry Farm, since it has it's own hotel and a free shuttle to Disney. It also looks like I can book a day tour or two so we can see something that is not Disney.

I am trying to keep costs down, and not plunk down large sums of cash for cabs, etc. and I am kind of thinking it would be nice if we were not completely confined to a small square of Anaheim. I'd really like to spend a night at the Queen Mary, but I'm not sure how we'd arrange to get there.

The only major bucket list item that needs to be accomplished other than Disneyland is to see the Pacific, and hopefully dip our toes in it, but I'm thinking that the right day tour might take care of that, as well as some other general tourist stuff. My real concern is whether it is possible to get into a public transportation system and explore the area/city, or whether the coverage is so patchy that it's really not feasible.
