    Hi Kay, YOu answered a ? about travel time from ttc -MK for CRT. We have a reser. at a similar time but staying @ Poly. What is the quickest route for us to take?  How much time should we allow?

    Hi Jennifer!  I know most families love the idea of taking the monorail from the Polynesian resort to the Magic Kingdom but when you are trying to get there for an important dining reservation such as Cinderella's Royal Table I suggest taking the boat launch.  It would take about 12 minutes to go from your resort to the boat area directly in front of the park.  Please also add some time to that in case you have to wait for a boat.  Once you are at the park give yourself at least 15 minutes to walk to the castle podium on the back side to check in.  If it is crowded on Main Street you want to give yourself even more time.  If you need to rent a stroller please add that to the timing as well. Try to look at a park map before you go to see the routes you can choose to get into Fantasyland and the castle.  Overall I would still give yourself 45 minutes to make the trip so you are not rushing and running even though it can be done in less.

    I suggest the boats over the monorails since you can often be on the monorail when there is a delay and they are stopped.  There is nothing more stressful then being stuck on the monorail during a delay as you are watching the clock tick away and time getting closer to your reservation. There is just less chance of a delay on the boats.
