    I currently have a reservation for Ohana at 7:30AM. Will there be bus transportation available that early? I know that I have to take a bus to Magic Kingdom or the transportation center. What is my best route?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Denise. I'm so glad you've dropped by to chat about your upcoming reservation at 'Ohana. 

    'Ohana, for breakfast, is actually one of the first meals I can remember eating as a small girl visiting Walt Disney World. Because of this, it will always hold a near and dear spot in my heart. I am so glad that 'Ohana is officially back and open for business. Breakfast there is absolutely delicious. My mouth is watering just thinking about the freshly made pineapple-coconut bread. That's the one menu item that has remained the same all of these years and it is delicious. Also on the breakfast menu right now you'll find offerings like scrambled eggs, breakfast sausage, Hawaiian-style ham with a pineapple compote, island-style potatoes and you can't forget about Mickey-shaped waffles. Yum! 

    To get to your early morning breakfast reservation, Denise, you may be able to use the Walt Disney World Resort transportation. It is all going to depend on what time the theme parks open that morning. Transportation to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks starts running about 45 minutes prior to that scheduled park opening time. The best route (again depending on opening times) would be to take a bus from the resort that you are staying at over to Magic Kingdom Park, from there, you'd hop on the monorail and ride it until you get over to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort which will be the third stop from Magic Kingdom Park. If a different Walt Disney World Theme Park opens earlier that day what you would need to do is take the bus to that theme park instead and then transfer buses to the bus designated back to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. 

    For early morning dining reservations, I actually just like to use a ride-share service, Denise. Ride-share service companies are able to pick you up right in front of your resort's lobby and drop you off right in front of Disney's Polynesian Village Resorts lobby. Using a ride-share service, you'll be able to leave a lot less early in the morning than if you were using the complimentary Disney transportation because it is a direct route. I've found that using a ride-share service to get between resorts usually costs around $10.00 or less and I find that it is well worth the extra cost. 

    I hope this helps, Denise. If you have any other questions, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. Have fun and enjoy!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
