    Hi, Please advise how do I get from Epcot to Polynesian resort & how long would it take? Same question but from All Star Movie Resort to Beach Club Resort? Do the Disney buses pick up & go or they'd wait for a full bus? Thx a lot!!

    Hi Tracey!  It will be very easy to reach the Polynesian resort from EPCOT. You will have two choices....monorail or bus.  The monorail is fun and comfortable and the station is just outside the main entrance.  You will reach the Transportation and Ticket Center and will then change to the resort monorail at this location. The Polynesian will be the first stop once you are on this route.  This trip would take about 36 minutes plus wait times. The bus area is just outside the park main entrance to the left as you exit.  There will be signs alerting you to the bus for the Polynesian resort and you will wait there. Hopefully it won't be a long wait but you can expect up to about 15-20 minutes if you have just missed one.  The ride itself on the bus to the resort should take approximately 42 minutes.

    It is a little more difficult to go between resorts.  You will need to catch a bus from the All Star Movie resort and head to a park with Hollywood Studios being one choice for this transfer. Once you arrive at this park you can either take the mile walk along the canal to the Beach Club resort(about 36 minutes) or you can hop on one of the water taxis that will take you to the resorts (about 50 minutes).  Your last option is to take the bus from All Star Movies to EPCOT then walk through the park to the International Gateway entrance and walk the five minutes to the Beach Club. (Total for this option is about 36 minutes).

    Obviously the easiest and fastest but also the most expensive way to travel this route would be by taxi. It would most likely be less then $20 and would take about 8 minutes!

    Buses remain on a schedule the best they can so they will not stop and wait until they are full.  They occasionally will wait for guests if they see them coming to the bus stop area and there will be some longer waits at the stops when they need to get handicap vehicles and chairs loaded or unloaded.
