    How early does the boat launch at the Wilderness Lodge start running? We have a 7:30 breakfast reservation at Ohana and planned to catch a boat and take it to the Contemporary and then the monorail to the Poly. Will we make it in time this way?

    Hello, Jennifer!

    Welcome back! Thank you for bringing another question to our Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    It's such a pleasure to answer your question! Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is my favorite Disney Resort hotel. Remembering it makes me so happy. Some of my favorite Disney memories were created there, and I can't wait to go back!

    Water and Monorail transportation around Magic Kingdom Park usually begin 30 minutes before the Theme Park opens. In your case, I think it's risky to take the boat, and then the Monorail if your reservation is at 7:30 a.m. 

    The quickest and safest way to get there, in my opinion, are the Minnie Vans. They are cute, spacious, can accommodate up to 6 Guests and are equipped with two car seats for the little ones. You can request your Minnie Van through the Lyft app and let the magic Cast Members take you to your dining reservation in style!

    By using a Minnie Van, you will not have to coordinate schedules and risk missing your 'Ohana breakfast, Jennifer. It's a practical and whimsical experience!

    I hope this advice is useful for your upcoming Disney vacations, dear Jennifer! As more questions come up, please, bring them here, old friend. It's always a pleasure to help!

    May the magic be with you,
