Anaheim to Rose Parade

My family and I will be staying at the Marriott in Anaheim and we have tickets to attend the rose parade. My question is what is the best way to get to and from the parade form Anaheim?

Sorry for the delay in responding, your post was lost in the general crush of questions.

If you have a car, I would drive to Downtown Los Angeles, park at Union Station and ride the Gold Line into Pasadena.

Without a car, take the train from Anaheim to Union Station and then Gold Line.

If the parade starts at 8AM and you are near the Orange Grove/Colorado Blvd intersection, I'd want to be in my seats no later than 7:30AM.

Layer and dress warmly for the morning, but be ready to shed the outer layer as it warms up.

Even if you don't have game tickets I'd walk down to the stadium area and buy t-shirts, sweatshirts, etc and see the Rose Bowl Experience area.

The problem with the trains, the Metrolink will more likely not run on New Years Day from Orange County. And the first Amtrak train Northbound from Orange County won't get into Union Station until 8:50 AM

So that option won't work.

Some private companies will offer the trip though.



Hope that helps.
