Your hotel should have a free shuttle to both Universal Studios and to the Universal City subway station.

One way to get to the hotel from LAX is to take the FlyAway bus to Union Station in downtown Los Angeles, and from Union Station take the Red Line subway towards North Hollywood, exiting at the Universal City station, then getting the hotel's shuttle back to the hotel. But be sure to arrange for the shuttle in advance with the hotel. Total cost for this will be $9.50 per person - $7 for the FlyAway bus, $1 to buy a TAP card for the Metro system (which you'll only need to buy one time), and $1.50 for the subway ride.

Alternatively, you can use a shared van shuttle from LAX - see www.supershuttle.com or www.primetimeshuttle.com - these shuttles may circle the airport to try and fill up (they hold 7 passengers) and then may detour to drop off or pick up the other passengers before they drop you off at your hotel, but with one or two people they'll be cheaper than a taxi.

Finally, you can take a taxi, but it will cost somewhere around $80 to the Beverly Garland from LAX.

To get to Disneyland, you have a few options.

The very best way is to rent a car for the day and drive yourself. This will allow you to get to Disneyland before it opens (important since lines (queues) for rides are shortest when the park first opens) and leave after it closes (so you can maximize your time there). The other options may not allow this so easily.

The other alternatives all involve using the hotel's shuttle to get to the Universal City subway station.

a) take the subway to the Hollywood / Highland station - next to the station is the main depot for Star Line Tours (www.starlinetours.com) and they have tours to Disneyland. Check with Star Line, they may also offer the option of picking you up directly at your hotel.

b) take the subway to the 7th St. Metro Center, and from there take Metro Bus 460 to Disneyland (www.metro.net)

c) take the subway to Union Station and from there take a train - Amtrak (www.amtrak.com) or Metrolink (www.metrolinktrains.com) to the train station in Fullerton. From there you can take a taxi to Disneyland, or OCTA bus 43 (www.OCTA.net)

Hi, we recently stayed at Beverly Garland. We just got a prime shuttle from LAX to the hotel, think it was $44 for 2 of us. Didnt pre book it just got out of terminal and waited approx 10 mins for the shuttle to arrive. We tranfered to our Anaheim hotel a few days later and used Zippy Shuttle which cost $110. We could of used Lux Bus for cheaper but they only went early morning and we needed a lunchtime tranfer as we did the Warner studio tour that morning.
