Making the Most of San Francisco
Making the Most of San Francisco
The Wonder docks at Pier 35 on San Francisco’s Embarcadero, the waterfront boulevard. There’s a very long list of great places to visit within walking distance, and all sorts of public transit is at hand, starting with the F-Line streetcars that travel the waterfront (see below). It’s a great jumping-off spot, no matter where you’re headed. Disney’s port visits here are infrequent. The 2017 San Diego to Vancouver repositioning cruise will be in port Monday, May 19 from 8:00 am to 11:30 pm.
San Franciscans love their mass transit. Regular, one-way fares on the F Line and other Muni System buses and subways is $2.25 (have exact change or buy multi-ride passes). Free transfers are available on most lines, so the fare can take you a long way. The famed cable cars cost $7 per trip. A one-day, unlimited-ride Muni Passport is $20, available at selected locations in San Francisco (it’s also included in CityPASS, see next page). The pass covers bus, subway, cable car, the waterfront F-Line, plus rush-hour use of the Presidio Shuttle (see below). For more info on public transit, visit the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency web site at http://www.sfmta.com. With so much time in port, and attractions like the wine country and the Monterey Peninsula within reach, a car rental is a practical choice. Budget has the closest office to the pier, at 5 Embarcadero, near Market St. Most other major agencies have offices closer to the heart of downtown. Taxis cost $3.50 for the first 1/5 mile, $0.55 for each additional 1/5. Licensed cabs have “San Francisco Taxi” written on the side and rear of the vehicle, and there will be a small, metal license plate (taxi medallion) on the dashboard. Towncar/limo rides must be pre-arranged. Want a free ride to the Walt Disney Family Museum? The Presidio operates shuttle buses from downtown near the waterfront to the Presidio Transit Center, which is just a short walk to the museum. The downtown shuttles are free between 9:15 am and 4:00 pm, use a Muni Passport at other times. Shuttles also circulate throughout the Presidio, from 6:30 am to 7:30 pm, and are free at all times.
San Francisco is one of the U.S.’ largest cities, and personal safety should always be on your mind. Take all customary precautions, and be especially careful when using ATM machines and carrying bags and parcels.
