    Staying at the Polynesian with husband and 16 month old and would like to take advantage of morning EMH at Animal Kingdom. What is the best way to get there...bus? Is it direct? and what time should I plan to leave if want to be there by 8 am?

    I think it'd be pretty cool to ride a rhino into Animal Kingdom, but that's wrought with complexities. So let's talk about the most efficient way to get from the Polynesian to Animal Kingdom for morning Extra Magic Hours.

    The bus will get you there in plenty of time to experience the extra hour in the morning. Bus service will start about one hour prior to the park opening. In your case, that's 7:00 a.m. to make the 8:00 a.m. park opening.

    If your 16 month old can swing it, be queued up for the bus outside of the Poly 10 to 15 minutes before 7:00 a.m. and you'll make it for the full extra hour.
