Travel Costa Mesa invites visitors to stay in the City of the Arts® and take advantage of all the things to do in Costa Mesa through summer and beyond. With the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Costa Mesa makes it easy to get to Disneyland® Resort with its direct, door-to-door transportation to experience the much-anticipated new land. From Star Wars to the Apollo 11 mission, to the OC Planetarium, visitors who love space travel have a lot to experience in Costa Mesa.
Travel should be fun and stress-free, which is why Costa Mesa provides convenient, low-cost shuttle service to and from Disneyland. For a small fee, guests and their families are picked up at entrance of their Costa Mesa hotel and brought to the front steps of Disneyland, with the return trip later that evening following nightly fireworks.
Costa Mesa hotel deals are offered year round and featured under “May the Fun Be With You” hotel offers.
