Growing up in the Pacific Northwest we often visited our family down in Southern California. Inevitably these trips would include a day or two at Disneyland, sometimes we’d even take a train to the park. Those were great trips.
You still can take the train to Disneyland and now, thanks to a partnership between Amtrak and Disney, you can even save a few bucks doing so. Southern California Residents can save now through May 21 if they take the Pacific Surfliner to Anaheim.
“We are excited to partner with the Disneyland Resort to offer enhanced savings not only on train travel, but on a quintessential SoCal experience,” said Bryan MacDonald, chairman of the Los Angeles – San Diego – San Luis Obispo Rail Corridor Agency, which oversees the Pacific Surfliner service. “Through this partnership, we hope to make passenger rail service more accessible and approachable for Southern Californians, while also providing added value to our existing Pacific Surfliner customers.”
Anaheim Resort Transportation (ART) provides a connection from the train station to the Disneyland Resort. The ride is free with each valid train ticket, just show your ticket to board. Participants can travel to Anaheim by train from points throughout Southern California, including San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo.
