    We have dinner at 8:20p at Ohana's so we will need to drive b/c Magic Kingdom closes early that day and won't have ride home. Would we be able to drive and park at the Polynesian in the morning and ride monorail to Epcot?

    Hi Marie!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Generally speaking, the answer is "no".  Hotel parking is really set aside for guests staying at a resort or for guests visiting the resort for a reasonable amount of time. 

    Instead I would suggest driving to Epcot and then driving to the Polynesian for dinner.  You will be able to park in the Polynesian lot while you are dining; just be sure to have your confirmation number with you in case the Disney Cast Member at the parking lot gate asks for it.

    Another option would be to just use Disney transportation.  Even though the Magic Kingdom may close early, there will be buses to Downtown Disney until late into the night / early morning hours.  Thus you could take a Disney bus to Downtown Disney after dinner and there transfer to a bus going to your resort hotel.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
