    If I am staying at the Poly and I need to get to MK or Epcot for morning extra magic hours and the monorail isn't running yet, what is the best way to get there? The Poly doesn't run a MK or an Epcot

    Aloha Rebecca!  Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Soon you'll be celebrating the spirit of the South Pacific at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort.  My family and I have a future trip planned to experience all that the tropical atmosphere, newly-renovated Lava Pool and exotic dining experiences have to offer.

    Taking advantage of the morning Extra Magic Hours is well worth the extra coffee it takes to rouse late sleepers from their morning slumber.  As Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is a stop on the Resort Monorail line, your main source of transportation to Magic Kingdom and Epcot will be riding high in the sky on an express monorail.  Since Extra Magic Hours are a unique benefit of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, the Complimentary Resort Monorail follows suit by operating from 30 minutes prior to the to the earliest park opening, including Extra Magic Hours.  If Magic Kingdom or Epcot are open for Extra Magic Hours, the monorail will run early as well.

    Disney Bus Transportation transfers guests to the Magic Kingdom or Epcot from the Resort Monorail line only if the Monorail is out of service or being refurbished.  In that instance, speak with a Guest Services representative at the Resort Concierge and they will inform you of where and when the shuttles will depart.

    Be sure to look into Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show for an all-you-care-to-enjoy, family style feast at Luau Cove for a truly enchanting Disney's Polynesian Village Resort experience.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
