    When making my dining reservations I am being told to allow 1.5 hrs travel time. Ok- if i am staying at the Polynesian, what realistically should I expect the travel time to be say to the Contemporary???? (traveling in June)

    Hello, Dawn,

    When traveling from one park to another park or resort to resort, it can take a chunk of time. However, I can let you know that it is highly unlikely that it will take an hour and a half to get from the Polynesian Resort to the Contemporary Resort.  

    You have two easy options to get to Contemporary.  Simply grab the monorail from the Polynesian Resort which goes to the Grand Floridian, to the Magic Kingdom, and to the Contemporary Resort. If you have to wait for a monorail and with the two extra stops, it could take up to 20-30 minutes. 

    You can also catch the boat that goes directly to the Magic Kingdom. From there, you can either take the short walk to the Contemporary Resort or catch the monorail.  This could be around 30 minutes depending on how long you have to wait for the boat/monorail. 

    Thank you for the question. Have an incredible trip and enjoy the Polynesian Resort.  Please let us know if we can help again.
