Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood sometimes get a bad rap. Yes, the theme parks are considerably smaller than the parks in Florida. But, I’m a firm believer that smaller than does not necessarily mean worsethan. If you’re visiting California for Disneyland, you may be considering adding a day to Universal. So, the question is, how do you get from one theme park to the next? Are they close to each other? Well, no, Disneyland and Universal are actually about an hour and a half away from each other. There are many ways to get from Point A to Point B and some are more convenient than others. Let’s parse through all the different modes of transportation that will get you from Disneyland to Universal Studios Hollywood. Then, I’ll give you my opinion on which method I think is the best.

But first, let’s go back to the whole Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood having a bad rap thing. If you’re used to the parks in Orlando, you may be surprised by how much smaller the California parks are. Once you get past the size, you will probably really enjoy either theme park. Especially if you’re a Disney and Universal Super Fan. Call me crazy, but I actually like visiting the California parks more than the Florida parks. Disneyland has a lot of rides crammed inside the “small” park and it’s packed with old-school Disney nostalgia. I swear I can feel Walt’s presence in every corner of that park.

Over in Los Angeles, Universal Studios Hollywood is set in an incredibly beautiful landscape. The park is placed within the rolling hills of Hollywood and the movie studios make for a gorgeous backdrop to the theme park. The tram tour guides you through some real Hollywood studios used for filming television and movies. And you may even spot a celebrity or two! This park can be the perfect, low-key addition to your trip to SoCal. Both parks are close to Los Angeles, so you can tack on an extra few days for stalking celebrities, shopping on Rodeo drive, and strolling the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
