    What’s the best way to get from the Poly to Riviera for a 8am breakfast reservation? We would do HWS bus to Skyliner but is it true park buses only begin to run 45 minutes prior to park opening (9am or 8:30 for hotel guests making earliest bus 7:45am?)

    Hi Frank!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney! As a fellow New Yorker, I know the importance of planning ahead, so I'm glad to see you've booked your Disney Resorts Collection hotel stay at none other than Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. Surrounded by the lush tropical landscape and the sounds of island music, you'll be ready to begin the most amazing Spring Break in the Florida sunshine!  

    Frank, Disney has many modes of transportation available to Guests on property. With bus transportation, water taxis, monorail, and Disney Skyliner, they've got Guests covered on land, sea, and, well, sky. Seeing as your breakfast reservations are at 8 a.m., your only true option is to take a rideshare or taxi service from your resort to Disney's Riviera Resort. Currently, buses to Disney's Hollywood Studios will begin service one hour prior to Early Theme Park Entry time, which is thirty minutes before general opening. In this case, buses would not begin operating until 7:30 a.m., which is cutting it very close. In order to arrive at the suggested time of 15 minutes before your reservation, a taxi is your best bet. Once you've finished dining, you can then take the Disney Skyliner towards EPCOT or Hollywood Studios to begin your park experience!

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
