I am plannign a taxi from SNA to the hotel with DL being the reason for the trip. I know this is peak time and it may take longer to get through the parks, but it seems we would have a day or so left over for something else and would condider renting a car for a day or two. I did not realized LA (Universal) is about as far as San Diego or is this not true? [/QUOTE]
As Andrea mentioned, it all depends on traffic. A friend of mine actually works for the studio, and I thought I could spend a day doing a tour of the movie lot, until I found out what traffic is like between. :mad: I would recommend an early commando launch and do breakfast once you arrive, then perhaps plan to spend the whole day there, and brave the freeways after dark. :ph34r:
[QUOTE=jk8;1098264]At any rate, we have DS12 along with me and DH. What would you suggest for another theme park or activity?
Another? Possibly you might consider Knotts Berry Farm. Though, in all honesty, the differences are such that it might make you truly appreciate Disney. Other Edgeyoumakashional options include Long Beach - Queen Mary (The Spruce Goose ain’t there no mo), Mission San Juan Capistrano, and in Los Angeles - LaBrea Tar Pits, Griffith Observatory.
That being said, any trip is going to be a whole day affair, because traffic can be, how we say, “frustrating” for the inexperienced. I have done seven days in Disneyland/California Adventure, and trust me, you won’t get bored at all, in fact it would allow you to enjoy the leisurely approach that many only dream about. :pirate:
