    Staying at AOA. MK closes at 8:00PM and have dining reservations at Ohana at 9:10 PM. Is transportation still available to Poly and back to AOA and if so what routes can I use?

    Hi, Randolph!

    A fun-filled day topped off with dinner at 'Ohana sounds like a great plan. Since you have a late night planned, I would schedule in a mid-day break and a late lunch so you are good to go for your wonderful dinner at the beautiful Polynesian Village Resort

    According to the posted bus transportation hours, buses run for about an hour after the Magic Kingdom closes. With your 9:10pm dinner reservation, it will probably be close to 10:30pm by the time you wrap up with dessert. You have a few options to get back to your home at Art of Animation. At the Polynesian, you can hop on a bus to Disney Springs, then transfer to a bus to your resort. Your total commute with wait times could be an hour or more with this route, but would not cost anything with the complimentary transportation. 

    A better option would be to hire a car service. You can either get a taxi at the front entrance of the Polynesian, or use the Lyft app on your smartphone. For a real treat, stop by Bell Services to see if they can assist you in hiring a Minnie Van to transport you in magical style! (If you plan to use Lyft or a Minnie Van through Lyft, download the app ahead of time so you are ready to go.)

    Take your time with your dinner, then head to the front doors of the Polynesian where friendly Cast Members will be happy to assist you and guide you through your options to get back to Art of Animation. Enjoy this super fun night!
