    We are staying at All Star Music and have a 8:45 am ADR at Kona Cafe on 6/5. Magic Kingdom is offering EMH from 8a-9a that day. I figured we can take the bus from our resort to MK but should we take the monorail or water taxi to the Poly? Which is quicker?

    Hi Kelsey!

         You are going to have a wonderful breakfast at Kona Cafe in the Polynesian Resort!  Kona Cafe is my favorite place to eat breakfast in all of Walt Disney World!  Yes, you can take a Disney bus from the All Star Music Value Resort to the Magic Kingdom and then take a a boat or the Resort Monorail from the Magic Kingdom to the Polynesian Resort.  As to whether the boat or Resort Monorail would be faster will depends on a few things.  If there is a boat that is going to the Polynesian Resort waiting at the Magic Kingdom dock, then the boat would be the quickest (the boat dock for the Polynesian Resort and Grand Floridian Resort and Spa is the the dock that is the closest to the Resort Monorail entrance ramp).  If there is not a boat at the dock, then take the Resort Monorail because it can take up to 20 minutes for another boat to come.  If you take the Resort Monorail, the Polynesian will be your 3rd stop (from the Magic Kingdom the Resort Monorail stops at the Contemporary Resort, the Ticket and Transportation Center, and then the Polynesian Resort).  I would recommend getting in line for a bus to the Magic Kingdom at the All Star Music Resort no later than 7:45 am to 8:00 am because it will take you at least 20 minutes to get to the Magic Kingdom once you are on the bus and then at least another 15 minutes once you are on the boat or the Resort Monorail.

    I hope that your breakfast at Kona Cafe is totally amazing on your next Walt Disney World vacation!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
