    How do I get from Hollywood Studios to the Polynesian Hotel? If the show starts at 8:15pm what time should I leave Hollywood Studios? After the 8:15pm show at the Polynesian, how do I get to the Beach Club Resort?

    Hi Kassandra,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like you are headed to Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show at Disney's Polynesian Resort. 

    Thankfully, there are several Complimentary Resort Transportation options at the Walt Disney World Resort. The easiest and most direct route from Disney's Hollywood Studios would be to catch a bus to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. From Disney's Polynesian Village Resort to Disney's Beach Club Resort, I suggest you take the Monorail to Epcot (you will need to transfer at the Transportation & Ticket Center). From Epcot, you can walk or take a Water Taxi to Disney's Beach Club Resort.

    I suggest that you get to the bus stop at Disney's Hollywood Studios by 6:45 p.m. Remember that buses run approximately every 20 minutes. Of course, you may want to get there a bit earlier to get as close to the front of the line as possible, so adjust your departure time accordingly! 

    I hope you have downloaded the My Disney Experience Mobile App. We use the app to get directions while we are in the parks. According to the app, the travel time from Disney's Hollywood Studios to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is approximately 51 minutes.

    Have a magical time at the show!
