    To the best of my recollection, Amtrak does not stop in Carlsbad. The closest station is Oceanside, about 5 miles north.

    You would take the the bus from your Carlsbad location to Oceanside (OSD) train station and take the "Pacific Surfliner" to Anaheim.

    Yes, it's a safe way of travel.

    You can check this site for the bus Trip Planner:

    Despite the inconveniently place station in Oceanside, Amtrak is probably your best bet. You'll need some form of local transportation at both ends.
    It is about two miles from Disneyland to the Amtrak station in Anaheim ( cabs are common ).
    From Oceanside to Carlsbad, try the Coaster ( local train ), bus, or cab.

    Hi HB, I think the Coaster in this case wouldn't work as well as taking the bus, which should only take about fifteen minutes to the train station.

    Yes, assuming that the original poster is going to Legoland, a bus would be best. But I didn't know that for sure, so gave more generalized advice.

    HB, If you were directing this to me, "Leggoland...a bus would be best. But I didn't know that for sure, so gave more generalized advice."

    I'd just mention that the reason I suggested the bus as a better option, getting from Carlsbad to Oceanside, is that the Breeze (bus) runs more frequently and takes only about fifteen minutes. This makes it more convenient in getting to Oceanside without odd scheduling maneuvers trying to match the Coaster's arrival with the Surfliner's departure or having to wait for a long period of time.
