Both services provide prices based on current factors including; traffic conditions, supply and demand and current location etc.

Pro Tip: If you want to save money on your trip to Disneyland then rather than taking an uber from LAX to Disneyland consider taking one from your hotel to Disneyland (if you’re not located on-site or withing walking distance)

This will save you on the expensive parking charges Disneyland has in place and allow you to step straight out of the car and into one of the two incredible Disneyland parks!

When I checked online, I found that Lyft was cheaper than Uber. However, depending on the time in which you travel you may see different.

Depending on the size of your party, you’ll be able to choose between a standard car for four guests or an XL for up to seven passengers.
