2/3 days Disney 2 days most for LA , how long is your trip, does anyone drive. There is so much to see on the PCH that driving would be best. Santa Barbara, Monterey and possibly over to yosemite.

I agree with 2-3 at the most at Disney and also with 2 at most in LA.

For many, the absolute highlight of a West Coast trip is a drive on the PCH with all the awesome sights that this entails.

I went 2 years back and the part of the PCH that I most wanted to see (Carmel to San
Simeon) was closed. I will be returning at Easter 2020 in order to specifically drive that part of the route.

I would not consider a W Coast trip without a car as it is not simply about travelling City to City. I am more than comfortable using AMTRAC when it suits.. but not in California.

I think you need to read some trip reports and formulate a plan.
Mine is California N to South at Easter. As it is all on one thread, it may give you a running start of things to do. Afterwards it would be down to researching other one day, one thread reports that cover various attractions in far more detail.

Hope it helps.

I used to live in LA. Traffic sucks. I suggest that you get a hotel near whatever attractions you plan on seeing. Minimize your driving and budget at least half a day to get to the airport or you might miss your flight. I budgeted 4 hours to get to the airport but it took me 5 hours to get there so I missed my flight. I spent the night on a bench outside of LAX so I could wait for a standby seat the next morning. Ugh...
