Help me Coordinate this....

So here's the history. 2 years ago during our Disney Vaca we ate at O'hana. By the time we were done it was water parade time, so we couldn't get on the ferry. Then the monorail quit working. So we had to take a bus to MK. Well we didn't get there until after parade and fireworks, so it was chaos.....So any who it was midnight before we made it back to our hotel. Horrible transportation meltdown. We ended up with some fastpasses for our inconvenience.

We are staying at Saratoga (tree houses)

We are going to TRex in DTD for dinner at 5:30

We would like to go to the POLY to see the fireworks, then go back to the hotel. That way on our MK night we can just see the parade and leave before the mass exodus.

1. What would be the best way to get to POLY from Saratoga before the Fireworks?

2. What would be the quickest way to get back?

Do busses run to the resorts for the Trans&Ticketing center? Cause we could just wait for bus at poly, go there, then hop on bus to SSR.

Or can you park at the other resorts? Cause then we could just drive an save us the headache.

TIA for your help!

If you're going to the Poly to see the fireworks, I'd just drive over. Don't eat dessert at T-Rex, then stop at Captain Cook's before the fireworks to get some goodies! This way, you won't feel bad for parking in the Poly parking lot, as you will legitimately be visiting the resort, and dining there!

Your other option if you didn't have a car, which is what I would do, would be to not go back to your room after dinner, hang out in DTD a while longer, and take the Poly bus back to the resort for fireworks. Afterwards, I'd take the DTD bus from the Poly, and then either walk back to Saratoga, take the boat back if it's still running, or take the bus.
