This will show you door-to-door directions for public transportation throughout The Netherlands:

You could also use Google Maps.

Well in this case select the Efteling offer on www.discoverholland.com. Check validity date, the one for the summer might appear later this month. This is for adults, for kids below 12 buy railrunner day cards (2.50) for train and entrance tickets at gate or on Efteling website.

Is this for a day trip or one way? Makes a bit of a difference. For a day trip I would be tempted to rent a car with a whole family in tow

Uber? Seriously? It's 130km and Uber won't operate in the Efteling area. Even if they did you would be looking at needing Uber Van which will be €250 each way. More if you hit traffic.

Okay so Uber’s out lol. I will be in the Netherlands for three days. Based out of Zaandam

One day we will be travelling to Amsterdam the other to the theme park and then back-and-forth to the airport. Should I be looking into the regional travel card? Thank you so much for everybody’s input :-)

Use www.9292ov.nl to find your public transport stops, route or location (bus tram and metro)

Usually the bus and the trams are used whithin an area of 5km nearest

Use www.NS.nl when travelling from city to city by train (which is commonly the most economic option when travelling from amsterdam city to the city (?) and the entertainement park efteling.

https://www.google.nl/maps/dir/Amsterdam+Centraal,+Stationsplein,+1012+AB+Amsterdam/Efteling,+Europalaan+1,+5171+KW+Kaatsheuvel/@52.014406,4.5303234,9z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0x47c609b70dd81623:0xcae71b8d3adfd142!2m2!1d4.900272!2d52.3791283!1m5!1m1!1s0x47c696a9aff44307:0x443bdab1ed5cb89a!2m2!1d5.0497462!2d51.6506518!3e3

Google is your friend. Try to copy and paste the address above, its a Google Maps route from Amsterdam Central Station (assumed source location) to Kaatsheuvel (assumed destionation although it only reaches to the station of Kaatsheuvel so you could be more specific in yuor navigation)I wouldn't recommend a cab or uber from amsterdam to Kaatsheuvel. Just keep it economic. You might want to use your backpacks and sneakers with you.

Travel cards for bus or tram can usually bought at the nearest bus or tram stop locally (there's a cabin where you can buy the paper day or hourly tickets) but not all stops are equipped with one. When using the bus you just buy one when entering or theres an automatic.

When using the tram you will need to have one before entering the tram for example at the tram stop locally. Not many trams have an automatic equipped inside.

Travel cards can be bought at the nearest stations
