    DH and I are coming to WDW in June to celebrate our 20th anniversary! We are staying at AKL and have an 7:30 am ADR @ Kona in the Polynesian for that yummy Tonga Toast. Can we use Disney transportation to arrive in time? Want to leave the car parked!

    Hi Ginger,

    20 years - Congratulations!  and the Animal Kingdom Lodge, too. How fantastic and wonderfully romantic.

    Disney transportation does begin to run early so guests can arrive to early morning dining reservations, but the tricky part is that the transportation does not go from hotel to hotel.  What I'd do is take a bus to the Magic Kingdom and then transfer over to the Polynesian by either the monorail or boat. 

    I'd try to be at the Animal Kingdom Lodge bus stop by 6:45, if not even a bit earlier.  You could also check with guest services to confirm what time the buses will begin running to bring guests to the parks if that would give you more peace of mind with your travel plans for the day.

    Enjoy your Tonga Toast ; isn't it fabulous!
