I love the monorail to Epcot - it is like an attraction to me. Sometimes I ride it and don't get off at Epcot and just go back to the TTC - but only if the cars don't have that barnyard smell. Leaving the car at the Poly after Kona is a good plan. I usually walk from the Poly to the TTC - it is a short pleasant walk. And it would be a great excuse to eat more tonga toast. Another plan might be to have breakfast at Kona and then drive to Epcot and for a midday break you can ride the monorail. That way your car is where you will be when you leave the park and you don't have to wait in anymore lines. (Says the impatient person.) I will have to give Mom the credit for the philharmonic pictures - she has one of those fancy digital camera that has tons of pixels.
