Here is the real time traffic information on the local LA freeways. Guests who are live nearby or who are staying in a local hotel should access this information to get an idea of how long it will take to get to the park.
Guests who are planning to travel to the park on non-holiday weekday mornings between 7:00am - 9:00am should expect very heavy traffic. The same goes from 4:00-7:00 p.m. on non-holiday afternoons. On lower traffic weekends, usually Sunday mornings, Cal-Trans likes to work on the freeways, so guests should be prepared for some slowing in these areas as well. Guests in the area who want to find out the local traffic information and road closures can tune in to KNX 1070 (AM Radio) or KFWB 980 (AM Radio). Both of these have traffic updates very often along with the news. Once in the Anaheim Resort area you may want to tune to 1500 AM for Anaheim specific road closures and construction.
