Traveling from the Epcot resorts to the Monorail resorts is usually a DTD adventure for most folks. In my opinion, the multiple transfer is a pain in the butt and I'd not do it.
Which is why we rent a car or take a taxi instead.
I think the previous poster was just pointing out that there's no need to go all the way to DTD or the TTC to eat at a MK or Epcot area resort. For 'Ohana I would just get the bus to MK and get the monorail over to the Poly. For an Epcot resort I'd get the bus to Epcot and then walk over to wherever we're eating.
To the OP, we nearly always have breakfast on our first day at the Poly and we've never stayed there. We just get a really early bus to MK and then get the monorail over. On some occasions the bus driver has just asked us if we're getting breakfast in one of the MK resorts and has dropped us off right at the Poly (although I wouldn't depend on this happening).
