    Hi Disney Panel! My question is: Our flight lands at 3:30..staying at Poly. Will we have time to use Magical Express to Poly check in and make it to MK for Spectro Magic? If so, where should we try to watch the parade from?

    Hi Hether,

    The Polynesian Resort is a fantastic venue to call home while on vacation!  My family enjoyed a visit to "the Poly" in August, and had a wonderful time.  When you walk into the magnificent lobby, I'm guessing you'll question whether your vacation is actually in Hawaii!

    You don't mention when you are travelling, however, I think you should have plenty of time to take Magical Express to your resort, drop off your carry-on bags, and head over the the Magic Kingdom to enjoy Spectro Magic and even a few attractions.  The folks at Magical Express suggest that it can take up to two hours from the time you check-in (at the airport) to the time you arrive at your resort.  In my experience, this is a very conservative estimate.  It generally takes me about an hour and a half (or, many times, less).  As you know, the Polynesian is conveniently located on the monorail line, so getting to the park from your resort is a simple and short trip!

    Have a magical vacation!
