So every President's Day weekend for the last 7 years I fly out to Los Angeles for a convention at one of the LAX hotels. I fly in late-night Wednesday, It runs from Thursday evening till Sunday night, I fly back to Florida Monday morning. To prevent having to tell everyone that I flew across country to hang out in a hotel basement, I try to grab an Uber and do something in LA before or after the con, usually it's a movie Thursday morning or a comedy show Sunday night, something that gets me out and that I can tell the people back home about. Recently I've been giving advice to a buddy who's going to Disney World soon and it's put a crazy idea in my head, should I go to Disneyland on the Thursday? Being born and raised in Florida I've obviously spent a lot of time at Disney World but I've never made it to Disneyland. The one time I went to LA before this tradition I went to Universal (and having been to our Universal a few months ago I don't think it would be worth my time to go back on this trip am I wrong?) and now that I go every year for this, when I do take vacation I don't want to go to Southern California. So while I know spending less then one full day is not the optimal way to see Disneyland for the first time, it feels like the only way I'd see it anytime soon, and I figure the crowds will be even worse next year with Star Wars Land open. So I come seeking advice, what's the best way for a solo traveler without a car to get from a hotel near LAX to Disneyland and back before say 5pm on (oh boy) Valentine's Day. If I focus on rides that we don't have in Orlando what's the best plan of attack, or is all of this not worth the effort and I'm crazy for even thinking of it. Any Disneyland experts or people that have tried something like this, I'd love any help.
