    2 adults, Caribbean Resort. We want to go to the Polynesian (and other resorts) for breakfast BEFORE the parks open. How can we get there for a early reservation? Can we take a bus to Epoct or MK and get on the rail? Without going into the parks?

    Hello, Molly!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    Early morning dining reservations tend to scare some guests.  In the beginning, I was also worried about making my early dining reservations, but Disney has a way of making their MAGIC happen.  You will be able to make your dining reservations with no troubles at all.

    You can always catch a bus to your resort destination.  The Disney Transportation System begins running buses for early morning dining guests between 6:30-6:45 am.  Simply head on down to your resort's bus stop and look for a bus whose marquee may read "Dining", "Special" or "Character".  At least, these are the ones I am familiar with.  Simply let your driver know where you need to head and you will be on your way. Now if your reservation is not too early in the morning, you can most certainly take a bus to the Magic Kingdom and hop on Disney's Monorail for the following resorts:  Disney's Contemporary, Polynesian Resort and the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.  All these resorts offer great dining experiences that you do not want to miss.  Oh, you will not need to enter into the parks to use the Monorail.  Please note that any Cast Member at your resort will be more than happy to offer some advice on how to get your destination quickly.  They have always been helpful when I am in need of some advice when it comes to transportation. They deal with guests everyday and I am sure they have the best tips.  

    ~Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON"!~
