    We are excited to eat at Ohanas, though the ressie is for 940 pm. We are coming from akl.... #1 question is what is the quickest way to get there, do the magic kingdom monorails go DIRECTLY to Poly ? #2 How do we get back if its 1130 pm? Magic closes @11

    Hi Lori!

    Dinner at 'Ohana is a family tradition for each of our vacations. We love it there!

    I'm glad to see that you chose a reservation time that's later in the evening (that way you can take your time and enjoy all the delicious goodies they bring around!). 

    With respect to your first question, I'd suggest that you take a bus from your resort to the Magic Kingdom. From there, you can hop on the Monorail's resort loop and Disney's Polynesian Resort will be your third stop. Or, you can walk over to the boat launch and take the boat that services Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Disney's Polynesian Resort (it'll be the second stop). You can't go wrong with either one of those.

    With respect to your second question, buses will service the resort hotels until the theme parks are empty. It's been my experience that buses will depart from the theme parks anywhere from 60-90 minutes after the official close. If you're worried about the timing, you can walk out to the Polynesian's Monorail platform and ask one of the cast members to confirm if buses are still picking up resort hotel guests at the Magic Kingdom. (In the off chance that they aren't, you can always catch a cab from the bell stand at Disney's Polynesian Resort.)

    Here's a little tip from your buddy Derek:

    While it's tempting to keep giving a thumbs-up to all of your "cousins" that come around with meat skewers at 'Ohana, make sure you save enough room for dessert. Their bread pudding with bananas and caramel sauce is one of my top 5 favorite desserts in all of Walt Disney World. Want to know the other desserts on the list? Feel free to write back and I'll be happy to share my favorites!

    I hope that helps! If you have any other questions, please feel free to let me know and I'll be happy to help in any way that I can.

    Best regards,
