    Hello- From the Polynesian - monorail to Epcot, do you have to go through security twice..once at the hotel and once at Epcot? Is it better to walk to the TTC and get on the monorail there? Where would you go through security that way?

    Hey Carol! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I just know you are going to have a fabulous time staying at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. It is one of my very favorite places to stay. 

    I think you'll be happy to know that you will only need to go through security one time, at the resort, before you board the monorail to reach Epcot. Once you arrive at the Transportation and Ticket Center, you won't need to go through security a second time. If you are trying to save time, however, it isn't a bad idea to walk to the Transportation and Ticket Center from your resort hotel room. From Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, the monorail will make 2 stops before arriving at the Transportation and Ticket Center. One stop will be at Magic Kingdom Park and one at Disney's Contemporary Resort before continuing on to the Transportation and Ticket Center.  Then, to get to Epcot, you'll need to switch monorail lines to get to your destination. The security line at the Transportation and Ticket Center is right before you enter this area. My family and I drive ourselves to the parks frequently, so we are at the Transportation and Ticket Center a lot. I am always pleased by the amount of Security Officers and lines open for bag check, there never is a long wait. Depending on where your room is located at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, this option really could be a great time saver. 

    I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back and ask.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
