Hi. We will stay off-site and will have a Character Breakfast at Ohanas on our relax day. Does the Monorial stops at Polynesian? We would like to do an all around trip on it, which are the resorts that the monorial stops at? Which resorts could be nice to visit?

Thanks

We also stayed offsite and ate at Ohana's. We parked at O'hana, got a 3 hour parking pass, then after our dinner we took a trip around on the monorail. It stops at the grand Floridian and the contemporary. It makes for a nice few hours.

There are actually two monorail lines at MK that run parralel to each other in a loop around the Seven Seas Lagoon.

The Express monorail line stops at the MK gates and at the TTC (which is the MK parking lot).

The Resorts monorail line, which is right next to the Express line, stops at MK, TTC, and the three monorail resorts - Polynesian, Grand Floridian, and Contemporary.

If you drive to Polynesian for breakfast, you will only have a 3-hour parking pass, but if you have time, you can get on the monorail there and ride around to the other two resorts.

I highly recommend this type of resort-hopping! All three monorail resorts are beautiful and unique, with detailed grounds, lobbies, pools, and gift shops.

If you think it might take longer than 3 hours for breakfast and exploring, and I think it might, then you could park at MK and take the monorail from there. It will cost you $9, but you'd be able to park all day without worrying.

If you have additional time, you can also get a boat from either the Contemporary marina or the MK boat docks that will take you to Wilderness Lodge. I also highly recommend this! WL is one of the most spectacular and beautiful hotels in all of WDW and well worth the time it takes to get there, not to mention the fabulously beautiful boat ride. And keep in mind that the boat from Contemporary is a smaller launch than the one from MK, so the experience is quite different, making it worth trying one boat to get there and the other to get back.

If you do choose to park at the TTC, you can walk over to the Poly from there if you want. If you want to go for a longer monorail ride you can ride from TTC to Epcot. You actually go through the Epcot park before arriving at the station. You may want to ask if you can ride up front-they only allow a max of 4 people up front with the driver.

The gift shops at all 3 monorail resorts are nice.

Enjoy!
