Poly to Wilderness Lodge for ADR

We are staying at the Poly. On our MK day we are planning on getting to MK at rope drop and then heading back to Poly in early afternoon for a little R&R. We have a ADR at WL at 630 and then planning to go back to MK from there.

The question(s): What is the best way to get from Poly to WL? And then from WL to MK?

Poly to WL.. Quickest way is a cab. I want to say including tip it was $10. Otherwise I would take the boat or monorail to MK and then boat from MK to WL. For WL to MK there is a direct bus that is probably fastest but the boat from WL to MK is more scenic and maybe just a little bit longer.

It's very easy. Just take the monorail to the CR. Walk to the boat deck out back, and take the boat to the WL. (The loop is CR/FW/WL and takes about 20 minutes in total.) From WL, just take the boat or bus to MK.

From Poly to WL, you could also take the resort monorail to Contemporary and then boat to WL. From WL to MK, you could take the boat but there is also a bus.

This is what I was going to suggest .

I second this option. It's what our family would be doing

Thanks guys.

Poly to CR on monorail then boat to WL it is. Probably take the boat from WL back to MK.

The problem with the cab is that we are a family of 5 which usually means needing to gt 2 cabs, unless they have the mini-van cabs at WDW which I don't recall seeing the last time.

Just to throw it out there...you could take boat or monorail to MK and grab the bus from there to WL, it runs every 5-10 mins....would all depend if you were running late. If the boat from WL/FW is docking at MK as you are exiting boat or monorail from Poly, I'd just take that boat. It stops at WL on way to FW. If feeling adventurous split up and see who gets there first using the different ways.
