    Hi all,

    My apologies if this has been asked already. Is there anywhere to park within walking distance to the venue/beach/entrance. We’re fine walking a couple of miles. Thanks in advance!

    Yes, just park in the Doheny lot. It does fill up quick in the morning but you can park further down the beach and they run shuttles up and down the lots to the festival entrance.

    Nope... no parking onsite per latest update. I'm trying to post screenshot. On a good day there is almost no onsite in the state beach lot anyway

    Hampton Inn Mission Viejo here.  Interested in understanding transportation.  Getting to the fest seems easy, getting back to the hotel, not so much.

    Anyone still waiting on wristbands? I’m trying to sell my W1 passes (face value) but still haven’t received them yet. Emails to frontgate go unanswered.
  • chittychitty Posts: 524
    I just cancelled a room at beachfront inn and suites at Dana Point. If anyone looking it’s great location. I just decided to use my Hilton reservation instead 
  • Dumb newbie question.  Have never been to Ohana but considering grabbing tix off exchange.  I found a room in Laguna, are you able to just Uber to the venue or a drop off point?  All the shuttle talk is making me think otherwise.. thx!

    We wish! We've been trying to get a room there since the shows were announced. No luck still. We've stayed there in years past and the location is so perfect. WE keep hoping for a canx to come up but it's not happening. We are like 20 miles away at some crappy hotel.

    If Uber/Lyft is anything like at SHN prepare to spend a lot. I waited until 2am and still ended up paying $107 to go 12 miles. The first 6 drivers canceled. 
    This show, another show, a show here and a show there.
  • Oh wow - thx for the info.. that’s not ideal ha

    Yeah at this moment, we have no idea how we are getting back to the hotel in Mission Viejo. Heard stories about SHN and really do not want to ended up stranded after Ohana.

    It was nuts. I don't know how it usually is in California, but I've never not been able to get a ride. Uber, Lyft, all of the local taxi companies...there were just no drivers available.

    My recommendation would be to schedule the ride back in advance, and don't balk at the price. It cost me ~$30 to get there, and ~$120 to get home. If I wouldn't have been so cheap, I would have had my $80 ride home in advance, and would have been in bed two hours before I actually left Asbury.

    Schedule back with whom? Car service? Not worried about the price.

    For me, it would have been Lyft, but I believe Uber lets you schedule rides in advance too.

    Need some parking advice... 

    Staying in San Clemente with friends which is great but now they've moved the shuttle location. They live 7 miles from the fest site.
    Is there a likelihood of finding any parking nearish the beach in San Clemente. Happy to walk the 2 miles.
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    I booked a hotel near the old shuttle stop (which was still listed as the shuttle stop on the ohana page at the time) so I have shuttle passes but am nowhere near it anymore. But I was wondering if  it is any easier to take the shuttle out of the festival then get an uber from the dropoff location instead of trying to get one on the festival site? Slightly less people trying to access all at once...
