    Best way to get to Polynesian from pop century

    Aloha Anna!

    Thanks for stopping by with a question for us. I'm happy to help you navigate travel logistics during your stay. 

    Disney's Pop Century Resort is one of my favorite options and always brings fun with its colorful decade-theming. My family especially loves boarding the Disney Skyliner just steps from our resort room, and soaring to Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. As I'm sure you know, complimentary transportation is available between the resorts and theme parks, but not from one resort to another. But don't worry! I have a few suggestions to help you pop over to enjoy Disney's Polynesian Village Resort.

    Meals at guest favorite venues like 'Ohana and Kona Cafe are always worth the transit time you just need to know which transit option to take. Since Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is conveniently located near Magic Kingdom Park, your best bet is to board a bus there from Pop Century. Once you arrive you can proceed through security and head left to the Resort Monorail which will stop at Disney's Contemporary Resort and the Transportation and Ticket Center before arriving at the Polynesian. Alternatively, you can board the Gold Boat Launch across Seven Seas Lagoon. The Monorail arrives approximately every 10 minutes while the boat arrives closer to every 20 minutes.

    I enjoy experiencing the different transportation options throughout my trip, but if you are pressed for time, your quickest option would be Minnie Van Service directly to that tropical-scented lobby. This is a paid service that can be booked through the Lyft App, or you can opt for another third-party ride-share service.

    As you enjoy the rest of your vacation you can get directions and transit suggestions right in your My Disney Experience Mobile App. Simply search for your starting point and then click "Get Directions" to input your destination. All the available transportation options will be listed as well as walking directions, if applicable.

    I hope this helps get you exactly where you need to go. Once you get to Disney's Polynesian be sure to pick up a DOLE Whip from Pineapple Lanai and enjoy on behalf of your planDisney 'Ohana.

    Magic and memories,
