    We have a 5:15 dinner reservation at the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show, and a 4pm check in time the same day (Saturday) at the All Star Music Resort. Do they offer early check in? Also, what would be the quickest and most efficient route to get there on time

    Hi Jillian, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show is a great choice for your arrival day. I attended the show this past summer and the food was delicious plus the entertainment was so fun! I can understand why you would be concerned about making your dining reservation on time. You can actually use Online Check-In up to sixty days before your arrival date. On your arrival day, when your room is available you will be sent a text with the room number. 

    If for any reason you are uncomfortable with Online Check-In, you can still check in to your resort hotel in person. You can check in before 3 p.m. and they will make sure they have a contact number for you. As soon as your room is ready, they will send you a text with the room number. I have checked in as early as 8 a.m. for my Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. Of course, my room was not available until later in the day but I was able to go enjoy the parks until my room was ready. I left my luggage with Bell Services and called them to deliver it once I was in my room. 

    I think the most efficient way to get from Disney's All-Star Music Resort to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is to take a bus to Magic Kingdom Park then take the Monorail and Disney's Polynesian Village Resort will be the third stop. If you have more time and want to try something different, you can take a boat from Magic Kingdom Park to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. The boat will stop at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa before continuing on to the Polynesian. 

    Jillian, thank you for visiting us with your question. I hope you'll let us know if we can help you with any other planning questions!
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
