    Love this panel! We will be arriving from CA@4:15 and will be staying @ BC. Is there enough time to get to Ohana for a 7:30 ADR so we can watch fireworks & Electrical Parade or too ambitious after flying all day w/ 9 & 7 DD? Other ideas?


    You should be OK getting from the Beach Club to the Polynesian for 'Ohana in time. The best way to get there is to take the bus to the Magic Kingdom. Then either take the monorail or the boat launch to the Polynesian. This beats taking a bus to Downtown Disney and then waiting for another bus to the Polynesian.

    Another option, if you have park hoppers for that night, is to walk through Epcot and take the monorail from Epcot to the Transportation and Ticket Center. Then walk, or transfer to the resort monorail to get you to the Polynesian. This might be faster, but could be adding too much to an otherwise busy day on your kids.

    As to whether waiting up for the parade and the fireworks is too ambitions, it is hard to say. Since the time adjustment is in your favor, I would say you should be OK, as long as you don't have an early morning planned for the next day. In fact, this could be a truly magical way to start your vacation!
