    Hi. Can you please tell me if I have to be a guest, staying at The Polynesian, in order to ride the monorail to Magic Kingdom? I'm staying on International Drive, but this seems a far simpler way to access the park if I'm able to. Thank you

    Hi Dean,

    Welcome to planDisney! We are so glad to have you with us!

    Well, I think I have mixed news for you: You have the opportunity to ride high in the sky on the Disney Monorail to Magic Kingdom Park, but you will board from the Transportation & Ticket Center after parking your vehicle. Once you park, you will have the opportunity to decide if you would like to arrive in style on Ferry Boat or if you would like to cross Bay Lake on the highway in the sky. Both are excellent choices!

    The parking lot for Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is exclusively for Guests staying at the Resort hotel or who have an Advance Dining Reservation for one of their spectacular Table Service Dining Locations: Kona Cafe or 'Ohana, which are delicious! 

    If you would like to explore Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, feel free to hop aboard Disney's Resort Monorail from Magic Kingdom Park for the journey. I highly recommend a stop to Trader Sam to see what is new at his Tiki Bar, Trader Sam's Grog Grotto. There is always something exciting happening in that enchanted location and you won't want to miss it.

    I hope that's helpful, Dean! planDisney is here for you. 

    Adventure is out there,
