The Anaheim Regional Intermodal Transportation Center (ARTIC – the train station in Anaheim) is one quick shuttle ride to the front gates of the Disneyland® Resort. It’s pretty easy, but here’s a step-by-step guide if this is your first time making the trip:

Going to the Park (Anaheim Station to the Disneyland® Resort)

  1. We are traveling from Tucson, AZ, so we need transportation from the train station to the Disneyland Hotel. What is available?


    1. Hi Darleen. Sorry for the delay in responding. From the Anaheim Station, you can catch an Anaheim Resort Transportation Route 15 bus (free with your valid train ticket). http://rideart.org/routes-and-schedules/artic-sports-complex-line/ The shuttle goes right to the front gates of the park along Harbor Blvd. From there, you’d need to walk through the main area and Downtown Disney to get to the hotel. Many people also choose to Uber or Lyft from the station to the hotel directly. Have a great time! And make sure to visit our website to get a discount on park admission as an Amtrak customer.
