    We are planning on having breakfast at 'Ohana at the Polynesian but we are staying in the Villas at the Wilderness Lodge. What is the quickest way to get from the Wilderness Lodge to the Polynesian, then the Polynesian to Epcot.

    Hello Lauren!

    We had breakfast with Lilo, Stitch and friends at ‘Ohana for my son’s birthday last year, and it was a big hit. I highly recommend the breakfast potatoes and the juice!  

    Depending on the time of your Advance Dining Reservation you have few options. By far the fastest way to travel from Disney’s Wilderness Lodge to Disney’s Polynesian Village will be by taxi. If you would like to take a taxi, the front desk can call a reliable company for you. There are several websites to help you calculate approximate taxi fare, but I would estimate the cost to be around $20 before tip. If your Advance Dining Reservation is very early, such as before park opening, a taxi may be your only option.  

    If your Advance Dining Reservation is later in the morning, you can utilize Disney’s complimentary transportation. From Disney's Wilderness Lodge, you can take either a bus or a water taxi to the Magic Kingdom. From the Magic Kingdom, you can then take either the Resort Monorail, or a second water taxi to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. Any of these options will probably take about the same amount of time. Busses begin running one hour before park opening and the water taxi begins service 30 minutes prior. I recommend leaving yourself at least one hour to travel between resort hotels. 

    After your breakfast, I would actually consider walking from Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort to the Ticket and Transportation Center, and then taking the Monorail to Epcot for the fastest route. If you are too full from your delicious breakfast, simply take the Resort Monorail to the Ticket and Transportation Center, then transfer to the Epcot Monorail. I would anticipate another 45 minutes to an hour to get to Epcot. I hope this helps you as you plan out your exciting day!

    Wishing you full tummies and warm character hugs from your friends at ‘Ohana!
