    Arrive 3/2 @4:30 pm. Magical Express to Carribean Beach Resort. Thinking of ADR at Ohana. What is the best way to get to the Poly, and what time should I request when making reservations?

    Taking Disney's Magical Express, the complimentary motor coach service, to the Caribbean Beach Resort, it is difficult to estimate at what time you will arrive your resort.

    It will depend on how quickly you are able to board a bus, how long before the bus departs and how many other resorts the motor coach stops at. Traffic delays are yet another variable to consider.

    For example, I have had only one vacation where I was at my resort in 75 minutes.  Following the link provided, you'll see the time our bus pulled up to the Polynesian after departing the Orlando International Airport. It usually takes 90-120 minutes. Yikes.

    Your quickest way to the Polynesian Resort from CBR is to take a taxi. After dinner, you could take a taxi back to your resort or take the monorail to the Magic Kingdom (two stops away) and then board a bus to CBR.

    If you want to save money rather than time, I would take a bus to the Magic Kingdom and then monorail to the Polynesian. Allow one hour for travel time.

    I would suggest an 8:00 p.m. reservation.
