    Our trip is for Feb. 2012. We have two breakfast reservations for the week. Both are before 9am - one at the Beach Club resort and one at the Polynesian. We are at Riverside. I am wondering what our options are for getting there . Thanks.

    Hi Karen!

    You didn't say what time you reservations are for.  If your reservation at the Polynesian is around 8 am on a day when the Magic Kingdom is opening at 9am, you should be able to take the bus from Port Orleans Riverside to the Magic Kingdom; once you are at the Magic Kingdom, you can take the monorail to the Polynesian.  The Magic Kingdom monorail station is outside the park and the monorails start running an hour before park opening.  If it's a Morning Extra Magic Hour day at the Magic Kingdom, then the park will open even earlier to resort guests meaning the monorail will be running earlier.

    For the reservation at the Beach Club, your best bet is to take a taxi from Port Orleans Riverside to the Beach Club.  There's really no other good option unfortunately.  However, the good news is taxis are relatively inexpensive and quick; the provide an easy way to get around Walt Disney World.  After breakfast, you can easily get to Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios via a boat from the Beach Club (or just walk the 5 minute walk to Epcot's back entrance); you can also just take a bus from the front of the Beach Club Resort to another theme park or Downtown Disney.

    Enjoy planning your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation and write back if you have any more questions!
