    I’m staying at the Polynesian resort and have a dinner reservation at the Whispering Canyon Café in the Wilderness Lodge. Can I rent a motorboat from the Polynesian to get to the Whispering Lodge by way of the lagoon?

    Hello Anna-Marie!  Welcome to planDisney.

    It looks like you will be arriving in just a few days for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  I'll be happy to help you figure out the best way to travel to Disney's Wilderness Lodge for your dinner at Whispering Canyon Cafe.

    If you will have a vehicle, you are welcome to drive to Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  Guests may park at the hotel while enjoying their meal.  Another option would be to use a ride-share service.

    If you would prefer to travel via Seven Seas Lagoon, take a water taxi from Disney's Polynesian Village Resort to Magic Kingdom Park, and transfer there to another boat heading to Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  Alternatively, use monorail transportation to Magic Kingdom Park.  With transfers, allow up to 90 minutes to reach your destination.

    Did you know, you can get transportation directions right in the palm of your hand using the My Disney Experience mobile app?  Use the search button to type in your destination, then select "Get Directions".  You'll be able to enter your starting location and see what the best way to reach your destination is, and the approximate travel time.

    Motorized boat rentals are available for recreation, but not for transportation from one destination to another.  Pontoon boat rentals are available at the marinas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Disney's Contemporary Resort, and Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resorts.  Boat rentals are not available at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort at this time.  Hours vary seasonally, but boats are typically available for rent between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm.

    I hope that helps!  Please let us know if you have any additional questions.  Enjoy your stay!
