    I'm staying at the Grand Floridian, is there a way to walk to the Polynesian or can I only take the monorail?

    Hey there, Joyce. Welcome to planDisney. I'm so glad you've stopped by to chit-chat about your upcoming Walt Disney World Vacation. 

    Joyce, you are in for a real treat staying at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. It is just lovely there. You know one thing that I love about Walt Disney World is that no matter how many times I've visited, I'm always learning new things. That is what keeps me coming back after all these years.  I actually just stayed at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and discovered that there is indeed a walkway between the two resorts.

    My family and I really love spending the evenings at Tumbu Lounge which is located right outside of 'Ohana on the second floor of Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. It's a lounge that offers small plates, cocktails and mocktails - really something for the whole family. We enjoy grabbing a bite to eat and watching the fireworks from the bar area. Anyway, the first few nights I loaded my family up on the monorail and off we went. My husband mentioned wanting to walk one beautiful evening and I wasn't so sure because I knew the walkway had closed some time ago. But much to my surprise, Joyce, the walkway has officially opened back up and it is refreshed and stunning. The walk provides amazing views from the lagoon and only takes about 10 minutes to make the trek over there. It's practically perfect!   

    If you have a beautiful evening on your vacation, I highly recommend walking from Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa over to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. I hope this helps, Joyce. If you have any other questions about this or anything else, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. 

    Have fun!

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
