LuxBus America: Las Vegas to Anaheim

From our stay in Las Vegas, we will go to Disney in Anaheim. We wanted something different so we decided we want to go there by land. 

After googling, i found Lux Bus America. We were leaving on a Saturday and it has one trip scheduled for that day, leaving at 3:00 pm and will arrive at Anaheim at around 8:00 pm. 

The fare was $60 one way per person. During booking, it gave me options on pick up point and drop off point. I chose the California hotel downtown and drop off nearest to our Anaheim hotel was at Howard Johnson, about 3 min walk to our hotel (according to Google maps).

After booking, the instructions on the e-ticket asked me to confirm 48 hours before the date of departure so I did. They gave me specific instructions on pick up point and the lady I talked to reminded me to bring the credit card I used and valid IDs on the day. She also told me not to worry about luggages. 

On the day of the trip, the bus was prompt. After getting on at California Hotel, it picked up some other tourists in another location, then off we go! 🚌

There were complimentary snacks and drinks offered on the bus. During our ride, they were offering colas and juices. There was also an option for pretzels or chips (Lay's or Cheetos or Snyder). Complimentary wifi and power outlets also available. (Thus, i was able to write this 😝). Wifi though was on and off, which they actually mentioned even before we left the pick up point.

Since the entire ride was 4.5 hours, the bus attendant informed us that there will be two  movies that will be shown. One can use their own headsets or buy from them at $5 each. 

And oh, there is also a restroom at the back. Overall, i think not bad for the price. Much, much better than the provincial buses at home! 

So here I am sitting back and relaxed, enjoying the view, while LuxBusAmerica brings us to Anaheim 😊

At around 5:30 pm, there was a 20 minute stop over at Barstow California. Every one needed to go off the bus by this time. The station has a McDonald's, Dunkin Donuts, Panda Express and other chains. There were also some souvenir shops and of course, restrooms. 

No need to bring down stuff at the stopover. The attendant locked the bus while everyone was at the station. No need to also rush dinner as she advised us we can bring our food up at the bus.

At exactly 20 minutes (it was 6:05 pm by this time), we were again on our way to Anaheim. 

First stop was at Garden Walk Anaheim, then the bus had a few more stops before we were dropped in front of Howard Johnson, which was really about 3 minute walk to our hotel! (Yey! Google was accurate! 😊). Then the bus will continue on to LA

Overall the bus ride was smooth. I would definitely look them up again next time 👍😊
