    I have an 8:15am reservation at Garden Grill. We are staying at the Polynesian! What's the best way to get there in time? I wasn't sure because it's before the park is open! Thanks!!!

    Aloha Meredith,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!  Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is one of my family's favorite places to stay when visiting Walt Disney World Resort.

    Breakfast at The Garden Grill is a great way to begin your day at Epcot. Based on my own personal experience, I recommend walking to the Transportation and Ticket Center from Disney's Polynesian Village Resort in order to board the Epcot Monorail.  I have found this to be the quickest and most efficient route of transportation when traveling to Epcot from this resort location. With that being said, I do suggest checking with the Front Desk of your hotel the evening prior to make sure the Epcot Monorail will be running in time to make your Advanced Dining Reservation. I've always been able to utilize the Epcot Monorail in order to arrive prior to park opening, but operating hours are subject to change.

    I hope this information has been helpful to you. If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to reach out again. Best wishes for a magical trip, Meredith!

    Happy Travels,
