    105e 605s 91e 5s......and that should take you to the anaheim convention center....which is where im assuming where the american chemical society is going to meet...

    there should be signs cause i forget the exact exit name. if not just mapquest it.

    Then exit Disney Way. Make a left onto Harbor. Then a right onto Katella. The convention center is on Katella across the street from Disneyland.

    dont mean to be annoying or anything, but you might want to mapquest it then you can get exact number of miles and other cool things like a map.

    Sunset Beach is just north of Huntington, but South of Redondo and Seal Beach. It is a small diner-type place open 24 hours. Cool people and college students who want to be cool go there after the bars close.

    Hey, just in case you didn't want to rent a car from the airport (but I'm sure you will cuz it's CA) there is a Disneyland shuttle from LAX. I took it back in Oct. I think it was ~$20 pp

    if you ever come back to oc try to fly into john wayne. it's much easier. if possible, dont rent a car at lax. the traffic is horrendous. take a shuttle to a rental car place in oc and get a car there. if youre worried about directions, rest assured that almost everyone that drives could tell you how to get to the anaheim convetion ctr. it's right next to a few other major attractions. just to give you an idea, without traffic, it takes about 1 hr to drive from lax to the anaheim convention ctr. with heavy traffic, it can take up to 2 hrs or more.

    I should have been more clear, sorry. I can't rent a car, so I was actually asking about more public transportation options.

    Lessismoe- what is this disneyland shuttle? will they have directions for it at the airport?

    I had to fly southwest--I had credit there after cancelling a flight for an interview, and southwest only flies into LAX :( at least I don't completely lose the $200+.

    THanks guys!

    You follow the signs to where the bus/shuttle pick-ups are (if I remember correctly, it's in the concrete median) and the bus will come by hourly. I think it says something like Disneyland shuttle on the front, but I'm not sure-- I'll ask my fiance for you. Anyhow, it's a big charter bus.

    Also, you can always call Cloud 9 shuttle or Supershuttle for a ride. I'm not sure where you're staying, but sometimes nicer hotels will have shuttles to their hotel.

    I think the bars close at 2. Most of the Starbucks around here close at 12. Except the one at the Block, I think that closes at 1:30 on weekends.

    Ive lived in anaheim and know this area well ... take the 405 south then the 22 going east exit Harbor blvd . and go north (there are two exits for harbor north and south} then the convention center is on katella you'll be making another left onto katella its about 30/45 min from LA and much easier drive then previously mentioned.. hope this helps..
