    We are staying at the Coronado but have a dinner reservation at the Polynesian on 3/14/2021. We have a toddler with us. What is the best way to get there and back since the monorail is closed to the Polynesian currently.

    Hey there, Molly. Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. I bet you are getting so excited about your upcoming vacation, it is right around the corner! 

    Molly, I'm guessing that you have a dinner reservation at Kona Cafe. Great choice! If I were to make a suggestion, I'd definitely order the chicken wings and potstickers from the appetizer menu. They remind me of the ones served at 'Ohana, which is temporarily closed, and are oh so good! The last time I dined there, a few months ago, I also ordered the pork belly noodle bowl. It was bone broth, rice noodles, a soy egg, mushrooms, bok choy and hot sesame oil. I really enjoyed it and, of course, you can't go wrong with any of their sushi offerings. I'm going to be at Walt Disney World around the same time and I've just talked myself into making my own dinner reservation there! 

    Now, to get you to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort from Disney's Coronado Springs Resort you have a few different options but both are going to start out with a direct bus from your resort to Magic Kingdom Park. Because the monorail is currently unavailable to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, bus service is running Guests back and forth. Once at Magic Kingdom Park, you can simply hop on another bus marked for Disney's Polynesian Village Resort and be on your way. Alternatively, if your toddler wanted to take a monorail ride (kids at that age really love it) you can take the monorail over to the Transportation and Ticket Center from Magic Kingdom Park. Once there, you'll find a walkway that connects over to Disney's Polynesian Resort. The walk itself will have you inside the Grand Ceremonial House in about 10 minutes.  If you don't want to mess with changing transportation with your little one, rideshare services or a taxi will take you straight to your dinner. Both will pick you up in front of your resort's lobby and drop you off in a convenient location at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. From my experience, the cost to use these services around Walt Disney World property is very minimal and gets you to your destination in a very timely manner.  

    I hope this helps get you to your dinner with ease, Molly. If you have any other questions before your trip, I'd love for you to come back and ask me

    Enjoy!

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
