Anaheim to Manhatten Beach

Seems I have made a major doozy & booked two days in Manhatten Beach after Disneyland without realising how far away it was!

Any suggestions on how to get there?

Hmmmm should have figured this out earlier :(

How many of you? Probably a shuttle like Prime Shuttle or SuperShuttle. Or a very expensive cab ride.

2 adults and a whole lot of luggage :( Might be cheaper to extend the stay in Anaheim!!

Two steps:

Disneyland express bus from your hotel in anaheim to LAX or a shared van (prime time shuttle and super shuttle offer these) from your Anaheim hotel to LAX. (About $25 per person)

Then, a taxi to Manhattan Beach (about $25 including tip)

In your previous post you had two days after Disneyland before your early flight out of LAX. You have to return to the airport from Anaheim anyway. Manhattan Beach is just 3 miles south, and you wanted a beach town close by to walk around.

You are fine. Take the Disney Express Bus to LAX and then a taxi to your hotel. Or if you still have a car from your road trip, it's a 45 minute drive.

Have fun.

Make it super easy on yourself. UberX will cost you between $32 - $44 door-to-door. And take UberX when you depart from MB to LAX. About $10.

You would have made more of a doozy by not visiting Manhattan Beach.

Anaheim is great bc there are theme parks, and Disneyland is so fun.

But other than theme parks there is not much going on in Anaheim, being that far inland won't necessarily feel like a beach vacation in southern California.

Manhattan Beach is one of the most beautiful places on earth, so don't extend your stay in Anaheim, definitely take an Uber x to MB and enjoy the beach.

For an amazing meal, go to Simmzy's or MB Post downtown Manhattan Beach.

Enjoy!

Thanks for all your help - we got a shuttle to the airport & took a cab from there.

The beach was awesome & we even saw a pod of dolphins so that was the highlight :)

Had lunch at Rock N' Fish & had THE most amazing Jumbo Shrimps.

Thanks for the report. I miss being able to visit Manhattan Beach regularly. :( Have many happy memories of after work shenanigans at Rock N Fish.
