  • Realistic driving time DLR-Universal

    Gotta get ds to meet up with convention this Friday 9 am at Universal and he can't be late. Given holiday and rush hour, what's a realistic time to get on the road? (hopefully not the middle of the night ;P )

    Friday should be lighter traffic than normal, but he should leave Anaheim a bit before 7 to be at Universal by 9 am. A typical rush hour drive to downtown is 80-90 minutes from Anaheim, and Universal is a good 20-30 minutes farther in morning traffic. If he's lucky, he gets there in an hour and has time to park and relax before the convention.

      Hmmm.. I was afraid Mapquest's 46 minute estimate was overly optimistic.

      7 am is just too early. We'll probably close the park at midnight . Maybe we should stay somewhere near Universal instead the night before? Suggestions for someplace reasonable?

        Someplace reasonable ... near Universal Studios ... hmmm, can't help you there.

        But ... you can look in the Burbank/Glendale area's. You won't find anything reasonable in Universal City for sure.

          Too bad I didn't see this. I would recommend the Metrolink from Anaheim to Union Station, followed by the Red Line Subway to Universal.

          6:28AM train, in Union Station at 7:20AM; Red Line 7:27AM train, in at Universal Station at 7:56AM

          6:58AM train, in Union Station at 7:50AM; Red Line 7:57AM train, in at Universal Station at 8:26AM

          Get a cab from station to hotel, or walk up 30% incline. At least that's what it seems like.

          Home: need to catch 4:50, 5:40, or 6:30 train, so subtract about 45 minutes from any of these times for a departure from Universal Red Line station, in order to catch train in Union Station. (Extra time to allow for just missing a subway train, and having to wait 10 minutes.)
