Thanks!
Get out to the AK bus stop, at the Polynesian, by 7..no later though. There are early buses that start running by 6:30, although they don't run quite as frequently as the regular park buses do. You need to be at the park entrance by 7:45 in order to make it all the way over to Tusker House for 8:00.

Question getting to the Swan from....

Can anyone tell me the best way to get to the Swan from Shades of Green? I know the Poly is across the street from SOG, so if the best way is actually from the Poly, that's fine by me. Are there any boats that go to or near the Swan?

Also, in case we don't actually make it back to the hotel before our dinner ressies, what's the best way to the Swan from Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, and Epcot? We're going two different nights (50 percent military discount!! and just about the only character meals I could book at the last minute). Our schedule is kind of sketchy for a couple of days depending on when we go to MVMCP, so I'm just trying to figure out the best way from each place we might be just to cover my bases.

Thanks so much for your help!!!!

There will be buses that run between all parks and the Swan. If you are at SoG and need to get to the Swan, you can take a bus to DHS and then either boat or walk from there to the Swan. The boat takes about 15 mins once you are on board, but the wait can be up to 20 mins if you just miss one. The walk is about 15 mins as well...along a nice sidewalk, that runs beside the canal.
If you are at any park, you can just take the bus to the Swan from that park. The bus stops will be very well marked.
The only boats that run to the Swan/Dolphin are those that run between Epcot and DHS. There is no connecting boat service between the Epcot resorts and the MK resorts.

HS to Kona

Scenario:

We have an 8:15PM ADR at Kona on our HS day (01/13/11). We will end the day with Fantasmic at 6:30.

Question 1: Is there a bus directly from HS to Poly?

Question 2: Have I allotted enough time to make the ADR in time or should I make a later ADR? I would like to eat as early as possible.

Yes, there is a bus directly to the Polynesian from DHS. You could also catch the MK bus from DHS. It will drop you at the TTC and you can walk over to the Polynesian from there...about 8 mins.

It may be a bit close. If Fanstasmic gets done by 7:15ish, then you should be okay. Head right to the buses and grab the Polynesian or MK bus. It shouldn't take you more than 45 mins from bus stop to resort..depending on wait time for the bus to arrive.

To GF from WL

Does one of the park buses routinely stop at WL and then at the GF. We have a lunch booked at GF and I don't think I have to take a boat/bus to the MK and then get to GF by either monorail or boat.

Thanks.

Sure. You can either reserve it now, before you get there, or just do it when you get to your Disney resort. No problem using it just one way.

Best way to get from MK and AK to DTD

We are eating dinner in DTD a few nights while we are at Disney and do not want to go all the way back to our room at All Star Music. So using Disney Transportation what is the fastest way to get from:
1. MK to DTD
2. AK to DTD

You all have the best info!

The fastest is always a taxi.

By Disney transportation:
From MK, walk over to CR and take the DTD bus from there.
From AK, take the bus to AKL and then the DTD bus.

We just re-wrote our plan based on the weather for next week.... and so now I've got a couple of quick, last minute, transportation questions

What are my transportation options (and estimated times for each) from:

Epcot --> Magic Kingdom
DHS --> Magic Kingdom

From Epcot to MK
Bus to TTC then either Monorail or Ferry to MK entrance.
From DHS to MK
Same as above.

Allow a min of an hour for each, from park exit to MK entrance, could be a little more or less depending on waiting time for buses, monorail, or ferry.

If you have to get from one to the other in a hurry you could always use a taxi.
It will probably cut the time at least in half.

Have a great time.

Another option from either EPCOT or DHS is bus to Contemporary Resort and walk to MK (this eliminates the boat/monorail transfer). Search these threads for Robo's map of the path from CR to MK.
