    We are going to WDW soon, and I have a 7:50 am reservation at Ohana. We are staying off property and plan to be in MK that day. Should we park at MK and use WDW transportation over to the Polynesian? How much time should we allow to park and get there?

    Hey Jessica!

    Spending the morning with Lilo & Stitch is a great way to start any Disney day!

    You have two options to chose from when dining at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort for your breakfast when you are planning on spending the day at the Magic Kingdom:
    1. You can park at the Polynesian. Guest with an Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR) are allowed to park for free at any Walt Disney World resort. After your meal you would drive back over to the Ticket & Transportation Center (TTC) which is the park lot for the Magic Kingdom. (There is a time limit when parking for ADRs.) As an off-property guest you will have to pay the parking fee to enter that lot. Once you have parked you can either take the Express Monorail or the relaxing Ferry Boat ride to the Magic Kingdom. The walk in from the parking lot to 'Ohana could take as much as 5 minutes.
    2. You can park at the TTC and take the Resort Monorail to the Polynesian. Once you are done with your meal you can either take the Resort Monorail or one of the boat launches from the Polynesian dock to the Magic Kingdom. If you chose to park at the TTC you should allow for at least 20 minutes to get from your car, onto the tram, onto the Monorail and the ride to the Polynesian.

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any more questions regarding parking or any other aspect of your Walt Disney World vacation please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a *MAGICAL* vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
