Getting from CBR to Poly

I'm still very new to this, so sorry if this is a silly question. But...travelling between resorts, how does that work? I want to make a breakfast ressie for Kona Cafe one morning, and we are staying at CBR. How long is it going to take us to get over there?

Many thanks!

You will need to take a bus to a park first, then a bus to Poly. You could bus to MK then take the monorail as well. I would allow at least 45 minutes to an hour of travel time.

The PP is partially correct about the fastest way to Poly using Disney transport. Take a bus to the MK. There is NO BUS between the MK and the Poly. Only the resort launch or the monorail. It's always prudent to budget an hour just in case you just miss the previous park bus. Your resort concierge can give you a rough idea of what time the earliest park buses leave your resort.

Personally, in the early mornings I prefer to take a taxi and save myself an extra half hour of sleep and the hassle of catching the bus and connections.

A taxi would be easiest. I would allow an hour for WDW transportation, take the bus to MK, then I'd take the boat to Poly or if you prefer the Resort Monorail. It will stop at CR, TTC then Poly.

Bus from CBR to MK, then the fantastic boat launch to the Poly! You do need to allow a little while for this journey but it is easy and free. I would say for an 8.30 reservation for example, be at the CBR bus stop at 7.45, 15/20 mins to MK then the launch runs continually and is a lovely 5/7 min ride.

Disney always recommends allowing 90 minutes to get to your reservations. This would probably be good advice going from CBR to the Poly, factoring in travel and wait times for bus/boat/monorail.
