    Driving to 7:30 A.M. ADR at Ohana's on day MK opens at 9:00 A.M. Want to arrive at MK as close to opening as possible. Will the MK parking lot be open early to park before breakfast so we don't have to waste time after moving car? Or take bus from POFQ?

    Hi Donna!

    The Magic Kingdom parking lot will be open early, but I recommend taking a bus from Port Orleans French Quarter to the Magic Kingdom and then taking the monorail to the Polynesian.  Overall, you will save time using the Disney bus system when you consider both leaving your hotel in the morning and returning in the evening.  Another option is to drive and park in the Polynesian Resort's parking lot, but you're right, it will take some time to move your car from there to the Magic Kingdom parking lot after breakfast.

    If you want the most efficient way to save time, then I think the best choice would be to take a taxi from Port Orleans French Quarter directly to the Polynesian.  Then you could just leave your hotel at 7:00 am and get to the Polynesian in plenty of time for your 7:30 am ADR.  After breakfast, you would take the monorail to the Magic Kingdom, and at the end of your day, just take a bus back to Port Orleans.

    Enjoy planning and write back if you have any more questions!
