    If I'm not staying at the Polynesian Resort & don't have an ADR, can ride share services drop me off directly at the hotel? What if I book a Minnie Van vs regular ride share, or must I use the monorail/buses? Would love to visit the lounges!

    Hello Mimi!

    Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is a fantastic Walt Disney World Resort! Tambu LoungeTrader Sam's Grog Grotto, and Trader Sam's Tiki Terrace are some of my favorite lounges and bars at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort.

    You don't have to be staying at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort to enjoy restaurants or lounges at that Resort. You can take a ride-share service or enjoy the Minnie Van™ Service through the Lyft app to get to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. The ride-share driver will tell the Cast Member at the security gate that they are dropping a Guest off. They may ask to see your Photo ID or scan your MagicBand, according to my experiences. You also have the option to take a Disney bus from your Walt Disney World Resort to the Magic Kingdom Park and then take the Resort Monorail to Disney's Polynesian Resort. The Walt Disney World Transportation System is complimentary to all Guests, whereas a ride-share service will cost money.

    I hope you have an incredible time experiencing the lounges in Disney's Polynesian Resort on your upcoming vacation!
