Pop to Polynesian?

What is the best way to get from Pop to Ohana for 8:00 dinner? Bus to MK then monorail? If it matters we will have 2 kids in tow, 6 & 2.

Yes, or bus and then boat.

The boat dock at MK for Poly is right next to the Resort Monorail entrance, so you can see if a boat is docking as you head for the monorail.

Kinda late dinner for young kids. You may want to consider a taxi...

I would be more concerned with the return trip from poly to pop with 2 young children after an 8pm dinner. Getting there should be the easy part as Magic Kingdom transportation will get you there; back to POP may need to be taxi.

Is there a bus to the TTC from Pop? Then you can just walk to the Poly.

No, unless there were some kind of special circumstance.

To get TO Poly from Pop, I would bus to MK, then take the boat to Poly. The boat to Poly only stops at GF on the way. The monorail has to stop at CR and TTC before getting to the Poly. Also, the boat is closer to the bus depot than the monorail station.

Getting back to Pop, you could monorail or boat back to MK. The boat still only stops at GF, but so does the monorail, so the monorail is much quicker going TO MK. Once at MK, get on a Pop bus.

Since we will probably be leaving Poly about the time MK is emptying out would it be better to take monorail to Epcot and bus from there to Pop?

We had a problem this past week with the resort line not taking passengers towards MK at park closing time, which was why I would be more concerned going back to POP. We spent 90 minutes leaving MK, dropping of DS friend at BLT & walking back to MK because Contemporary monorail was closed to travel out & only open for incoming. It was a long walk back to ferry to reach the car at the TTC. This was all at park closing time on an EMH night, so not sure why we couldn't board at CR.

A cab will be about $20. I would cab your way back to Pop. Much easier than taking 2 busses at that time with the crowds.

Or take Express Monorail to TTC, and then short walk to Poly. Isn't that probably better/faster? Plus easier if they have a stroller.
