    Hello panel, I am wondering what is the best way to get back to port Orleans riverside from the poly. I want to watch the fireworks on the beach and avoid the huge crowds. Thanks so much

    Jill, the beach at Disney's Polynesian Resort offers a splendid view of the Magic Kingdom fireworks. Kids can play in the sand while grownups sit and chill before the pyrotechnic spectacle begins for a lovely ending to a magical day.

    Hop a bus to Downtown Disney once the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular is over. From Downtown Disney you can board another bus or take an enjoyable boat ride back to Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside and bypass the post fireworks crowds at the Magic Kingdom and on the monorail. If you are visiting during a time of year when crowds are manageable, the monorail-to-Magic-Kingdom-bus-to-POR is more direct and would be the easiest option.
