    We would like to park in the morning at the Polynesian, take the boat to Magic Kingdom in the morning, then take the boat back to the Polynesian in the evening for our dinner dining reservation at Ohana. Is this possible?

    Hi Emily, 

    Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney! It sounds like you have planned a magical day beginning with a visit to Magic Kingdom Park followed by a meal at 'Ohana! 

    Standard self-parking is complimentary for day Guests visiting Disney Resort hotels for select dining, shopping, entertainment, and recreational experiences. Since you have a dining reservation at ‘Ohana, you are welcome to park at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort for the length of your meal. If you arrive at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort in the morning, you will not be allowed to park in the lot so far in advance of your dining reservation. 

    My recommendation is to park at the Transportation and Ticket Center in the morning. You can take the ferryboat to Magic Kingdom Park, then take a water taxi or the monorail to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort for your dining reservation. Standard theme park parking is included for registered Guests of Disney Resort hotels and select Annual Passholders. After you dine, you can choose to enjoy a stroll from Disney’s Polynesian Resort to the Transportation and Ticket Center or take one more trip around the Resort Monorail loop. My family usually chooses the monorail because we like to wave to Magic Kingdom Park as we pass by, especially if it is the last day of our visit! If you decide to walk, I suggest stopping at Pineapple Lanai for a DOLE whip to eat on the way! 

    I hope this answer helped with planning your visit, Emily. If you have any future questions, come back and see me at planDisney!
