    We are staying at the Polynesian in late September of 2020. We want to dine at around 8:45 a.m. at Topolino's Terrace. We will not have a car. Is there a way to get there? What are our transportation options?

    Aloha, Jennifer!

    Thank you for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I'm so happy to learn you have a trip to Walt Disney World planned in just a few months and are staying at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort.  It is one of my family's favorite resorts, so I always smile when I think of it and the memories we made while staying there.  We love the close proximity to the Magic Kingdom as well as the lush gardens throughout the resort.  It is a great resort to spend some extra time just wandering the paths and soaking in the ambience. 

    I'm also equally excited to hear you have reservations at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera to have breakfast with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, and Daisy Duck.  They are currently out and about at the restaurant to wave hello from a distance and don't be surprised if they sneak into the backgrounds of selfies!  Make sure to take a peek at their clothes as you may notice they each have a different career path in the arts.  It is really adorable.  

    To get to Disney's Riviera Resort by 8:45 in the morning, the easiest way to do this is by taking a taxi or using a ride sharing service like Lyft or Uber. You could also utilize the Minnie Van Service through Lyft, which is a fun and special way to travel throughout Walt Disney World.  It is simple to use through the Lyft app as it will be one of your choices after you select your pick-up location. 

    Once you finish breakfast, you can hop on the Disney Skyliner to "fly" over to EPCOT or Disney's Hollywood Studios. If your destination is Disney's Animal Kingdom or the Magic Kingdom, you will be able to take a bus to either theme park.   By the way, if you haven't secured your theme park reservation yet through the Disney Park Pass Reservation system, you will want to do that soon. 

    Wishing you a magical trip!  Please let us know if you have any further questions. -Kara
