Planning a trip to the Los Angeles-Anaheim area can be a lot of fun. But, it can also be overwhelming. After all, Southern California has no shortage of amazing things to do. From planning a trip to Disneyland or Universal Studios Hollywood to planning a visit to Santa Monica Pier, you will delight in all the great things we offer.

However, one thing that is often not so high on the list of fun things to do when planning your vacation and itinerary is booking transportation. Even if you’re not from the area, you’ve surely heard news reports of heavy traffic and big-time delays. So, you definitely don’t want to get stuck in traffic for hours when you could be enjoying your day at one of the many attractions.

That’s why hiring a professional transportation service can really make your experience a better one. And, we’ve got tips on what to look for when hiring a car service.

4 Things to Look for in a Southern California Car Service

There’s no shortage of buses or other public transportation options in the Los Angeles area. But do you really want to be lugging bags and strollers on and off the bus, only to have to walk blocks and blocks to your final destination? Sure, you could rent a car. But, if you don’t know the area, you could easily lose your way or get stuck in that traffic we mentioned earlier. That’s why securing transportation ahead of time—such as a town car service—can make your vacation a whole lot easier.

Yet, if you have never booked a car service before, you might not know what to look for. And, trust us, not all transportation companies are the same. Here’s what you need to look for.

1.   Personalized Service

When selecting a car service, personalized attention to your itinerary can take your vacation from great to unforgettable. Look for companies that offer tailored routes and stops based on your interests and schedule. A service that asks about your preferences and plans in advance demonstrates a commitment to your comfort and enjoyment, ensuring your transportation experience seamlessly complements your Southern California adventure.

2.   Car Seats

Finding a car service that offers car seats for families visiting the magic and wonder of the area’s top attractions is non-negotiable. Opt for a Disneyland car service with car seats to ensure the youngest members of your family are safe and secure on every leg of your journey. This detail shows a company’s dedication to the safety and well-being[1]  of all passengers.

3.   Reliability and Punctuality

The key to a smooth and stress-free vacation is a dependable car service. Look for companies with a track record of punctuality and reliability. Reviews and testimonials[2]  can be a great resource for gauging past customers’ experiences. A service that values your time and ensures you reach your destinations as planned can make all the difference in enjoying your packed itinerary without the stress of unexpected delays.

4.   Knowledgeable and Professional Drivers

The benefit of a knowledgeable driver cannot be overstated. Choose a service that prides itself on drivers who know the Southern California area like the back of their hand and exhibit professionalism and courtesy. A driver who can navigate the quickest routes, offer recommendations, and share little-known local gems adds an invaluable layer to your travel experience.

Since Super Nintendo World opened at Universal Studios Hollywood in February of 2023, it’s been attracting many visitors. And, this isn’t really all that surprising because Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, and the other beloved characters from Super Nintendo are increasingly popular. From video games to character clothing and so much more, kids (and their parents) love Mario.

But, if you and your family are planning the trip, it’s important to do some homework in advance. Universal Studios Hollywood gets super busy, and Super Nintendo World itself is an intended destination for many guests.

Planning the Ultimate Trip to Los Angeles and Universal Studios Nintendo World in Hollywood

The Super Nintendo franchise is big—in fact, as of 2023, the brand itself was worth over 6.8 trillion dollars. That’s no small chunk of change. So, if your child is a fan, they’re definitely not alone. That’s why they’ve probably been begging and pleading for a trip to Nintendo World, ever since it opened just over a year ago.

The team at Anaheim Town Car Services loves Super Nintendo World, too. We’ve put together a list of helpful tips to help you maximize your Universal experience and delight in Mario and all his friends. Check out our list of tips below.

1.   Visit During Off-Peak Seasons

We’ll be brutally honest—Universal is always busy. So, trying to go when it is “slow” is likely not a realistic expectation. That said, there are times where it is a bit less busy. We suggest you plan your trip for weekdays in the winter or spring. Also, if Nintendo World is your intended destination, be sure to get to the park right when they open. This will help you maximize your experience.

2.   Buy Tickets in Advance

We highly recommend that you buy your tickets online before you go. This way, you’re sure you’ll get in on the day you want. Plus, you skip the long lines at the ticket booths. It’s a simple step that saves you time and stress.

3.   Consider the VIP Experience

If you have the financial means to do so and want to make your visit super special, think about the VIP experience. You get to skip lines, have special access, and even enjoy guided tours. It’s a bit pricier, but it makes your day at Universal Studios unforgettable. You can purchase the experience online in advance or you can buy the upgraded tickets when you arrive at the park (provided they have not yet sold out).

4.   Check Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge Off Your List Early

Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge is a super big hit. Everyone wants to try it because it is an interactive experience that works with your power-up wristbands (these can be purchased in several of the gift shops). So, get your wristbands and head to that ride first thing. This way, you avoid the long lines that build up as the day goes on. It’s a must-do, so make it your first stop.

5.   Book Transportation with Anaheim Town Car Services

Don’t let LA’s busy roads and tough parking spoil your fun. Book a ride with Anaheim Town Car Services. We make getting to Universal Studios and back to Disneyland easy and comfy, and we understand the traffic and various routes to help get you there on time. You won’t have to deal with traffic or find a parking spot when you book a ride with us. It’s a stress-free way to start and end your adventure.

Cross Universal Studio’s Super Nintendo World Off Your Bucket List

We’re convinced that you’ll love Super Nintendo World as much as we do. And, by booking transportation to get you there on time plus arriving first thing in the morning, you’ll be sure to make the most of your experience.
