    Hi Moms! We will be arriving in 18 days! Yay!! Our first night is dinner at O'hana. My DD really wants to ride the monorail even though we'll have a car. What is the est travel time from BLT at Contemporary to the Polynesian on the monorail? Thanks

    Welcome Back, Lisa!

    You have a mighty smart daughter. I would absolutely recommend that you ride the highway in the sky for your Advance Dining Reservation at one of my favorite dinners on Walt Disney World Resort Property! There is no denying that at least part of the appeal of staying conveniently on the Resort Monorail Loop is easy, traffic-free access to some of the most popular restaurants available. Especially since we are talking about the first day of your vacation, hop on that monorail and soak in the atmosphere of the quintessential Walt Disney World Resort mode of transportation.

    To answer your question, I would estimate about 20-minutes for your journey. That takes into account that you might wait a few minutes on the platform at Disney's Contemporary Resort, a quick stop at the Transportation & Ticket Center, and then the time to zoom over Disney's Seven Seas Lagoon to arrive at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort.

    Oh, and remember: Please stand clear of the doors.

    Wishing you many magical memories,
