    Want to do a monorail crawl with some new to Disney friends & like to make it go as smoothly as possible. Haven't made any reservations since I'm not sure of our arrival time. Will I be able to get in by telling security we want dolewhips?

    Hi there, Sydney, and welcome to planDisney!

    What I’d give right now to have a cold DOLE Whip right now…Also, how cool is it that your upcoming vacation is just around the river bend?! A Disney Monorail crawl is a great way to visit some of the hotels around the Seven Seas Lagoon. I especially like to enjoy a nice dinner at Disney’s Contemporary Resort’s California Grill and to relax with a drink in hand at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. 

    As you may know, the only guaranteed ways to park at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel is to be a Guest staying at the hotel or to have an advance dining reservation or other reservation for a hotel experience. When you arrive via your own vehicle, let the security guard know that you would like to visit for shopping or grabbing a yummy treat like DOLE Whip (if you’re visiting Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort’s Aloha Isle).

    However, it is entirely up to the Cast Member to determine if there’s room for you to park. This depends on many factors, including if it’s a super busy time for the Resort hotel. I highly recommend that you make a reservation or have a My Disney Experience App Mobile Order at one of the Resort hotels’ restaurants to be on the safe side. 

    I hope this helps, Sydney! If you have additional questions about your Disney vacation, give us a holler here at planDisney. I’m all ears!

    Magic always,
