Ok does anybody know If it's worth renting a car? The hotel I think I'm going to stay at has a shuttle to DL but what about shuttle to hotel or if we want to go to the beach or to hard rock cafe? What kind of transportation is there other then a car? I'm just not sure if it would be worth renting a car. How far is hard rock cafe from DL?

I suggest you rent a car. If you're not familiar with LA get a navigation system. Traffic in LA and Orange Co. Can be brutal.  - kweenofhearts  18.1 #7748 1:26AM
Your gonna need to rent a car. Public transportation is horrible in SoCal. There is the metrolink which stops at Angel's stadium and you can take it to LA easy enough and go to Union Station but the beach is a tad bit more difficult. You would have to take the bus or ride a bike down which isn't bad, just tiring. I love LA and have lived here my whole life but public transport is poop! - PickyPicky  14.7 #8688 9:20PM
If u want to go to the beach or hard rock, I think it's more convenient to rent a car. - MariaR  183.9 #2200 11:59PM
Taxi or city bus? Personally, I'd rent a car so I can be in my time and not someone else's - KissDclown  1089.1 #167 11:59PM
For disneyland days dont rent. For sightseeing rent the car. It will be worth it. - luvsariel  214.0 #1821 12:01AM
What hard rock cafe are u planning to go? Make sure u get a navigation with the car. - luvsariel  214.0 #1821 12:02AM
Look into the ART (Anaheim Resort Transit). See how far that will take you and where you want to go. rideart.org - MousekaNinja  422.4 #525 12:05AM
FYI- if I remember correctly there is a rental car place on DTD. It's on the DL Hotel side of the AMC along the wall. I can't remember which company it is. This way you can easily rent one for just a day if needed. - LilSterner  5503.0 #19 12:07AM
I believe its avis - MickeyMousefanatic  161.2 #2548 9:24PM
I havent really looked into which hard rock cafe. I would probably want to go to the closes one to DL since the hotel we plan to stay at will be close to DL. Also is there a Harley place close by? Two places my hubby always wants to get a tshirt from. - onbraudway  6.8 #14457 12:11AM
There is a Harley store in the Gardenwalk at Anaheim on Katella. :) - PeachKay  311.1 #847 8:00AM
The car rental at DTD is National. Very convenient. - Sandy  245.8 #1403 12:29AM
I believe theres an avis rent a car near the disney hotel too... Like 2 blocks away. Anyway, there are also those ride share mini busses/vans that go straight from the airport to area hotels. I believe they are somewhere between $50-60 one way. - urmajestymiz  115.5 #3317 12:34AM
Wow that's expensive Cheepee to get a car if you add paying for shuttle to hotel and back to airport then renting for a day. it would just make Sence to rent a car I think it was 35 a day for car - onbraudway  6.8 #14457 1:12PM
Defiantly rent a car. How long will you be here for. - Bambi.  605.0 #338 12:37AM

Hard Rock in Las Vegas might be far. Lol. - Chumash28  1207.7 #143 5:00AM

Hard Rock Hotel San Diego is the bomb diggity. - HotDiggityDogDaddy  1113.5 #163 8:28AM
There's also the hard rock at universal city walk. - TikiJOSEsWingman  332.4 #733 8:30AM
You also might want to consider that most hotels charge for parking. In my experience it's usually $12-14 a night - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #197 1:14PM
There's one hotel that's 9 dollars for parking a day. But I haven't decided on a hotel yet. I don't want to spend too much on the hotel I rather spend it on souviniers and food candy candy candy. Any suggestions on hotels? I've read some reviews but not a lot of good things were said. - onbraudway  6.8 #14457 9:05PM
I know hojo is the preferred for mw, but we stayed at the motel 6 on Disney way for a month when we moved here. It was clean, nice staff, plus it had a shuttle - MickeyMousefanatic  161.2 #2548 9:28PM
A car will be a huge help. - bearlove  144.4 #2811 1:15PM
I always rent a car. Anaheim, and so cal in general, is pretty spread out and doesn't have great public transit. - Echoingecho  134.2 #2978 5:38PM
