    We have breakfast reservations at Chef Mickey at 7 am. Can we take the monorail from the Polynesian to the Contemporary resort at that time?

    Hi, Donna!  Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    It really is a small world after all!  You just happen to be staying at my favorite Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, and you have dining reservations at my family's favorite spot for breakfast.  Normally, the easiest way to travel from Disney's Polynesian Village Resort to Disney's Contemporary Resort is by riding on the monorail.  However, the monorail usually does not start running until 30 minutes prior to the earliest theme park opening.  You can use your My Disney Experience mobile app to confirm the park hours for the date of your breakfast reservation at Chef Mickey's to determine if taking the monorail will be an option for you.

    I am visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with my own family in a couple of weeks, and we are in the exact same situation that you are.  We will be staying at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, and we plan to continue our long-standing family tradition of kicking off our first morning at the Walt Disney World Resort with breakfast at Chef Mickey's.  Like yours, our Chef Mickey's reservation is very early in the morning.  Since I think it is unlikely that the monorail will be running early enough for us to arrive on time, we are planning to use the Minnie Van Service.

    You can use the Lyft app to request and pay for a Minnie Van.  The Minnie Van Service begins running daily at 6:30 a.m., so it is the perfect solution for traveling to early morning breakfast reservations.  Plus, those red and white polka dot vehicles will get you there in style!

    See ya real soon!
