Disney Plans

(originally posted on LiveJournal)

This is some figuring for our trip to Disneyland. We thought we’d rent a car and drive down, that it would be cheaper. Maybe not. Let’s see…

Super Shuttle: $104 round trip. This is the only option from Long Beach.
Disneyland Express: $66 round trip. Available from LAX and Orange County.

Renting a small SUV: $344
The car gets 27 mpg. Gas: $87

Virgin Air:
SFO to Orange County or LAX: $357.54 (Long Beach is not an option.)
Baggage charge: $20/bag

JetBlue:
OAK to Long Beach: $297.50 (LAX and Orange County aren’t options.)
Baggage charge: None for the first bag for each passenger. Extra bags are $30/bag.

Southwest:
OAK to Orange County: $402.60
OAK to LAX: $357.60
Long Beach is not an option.
Baggage charge: None.

SFO Parking: $14/day
OAK Parking: $16/day

Flying to Long Beach on JetBlue would cost:
104 for the shuttle
297.50 for the airfare
96 for the parking

$497.50

Flying to LAX or Orange County on Virgin Air would cost:
66 for the shuttle
357.54 for the airfare
80 for the baggage charge (2 bags for 3 people, round trip)
84 for the parking

$587.54

Flying to LAX on Southwest would cost:
66 for the shuttle
357.60 for the airfare
96 for the parking

$519.60

Renting a car and driving would cost:
344.13 for the car rental
87 for the gas
100 for food for 3 people for 2 days

$431.13

So, between flying on JetBlue and driving, there is a $66.37 difference.

And I just remembered that we have some vouchers on JetBlue from our PA trip last year. Neither Max nor I seem to be able to find them though.
