There had been some questions about the walking route from the Ticket and Transportation Center to the Polynesian Resort. There are a few reasons why you might want to take this route. For the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, I had pointed out that the line for the ferry to the Ticket and Transportation Center was 45+ minutes long, while there was no line for the bus to the Polynesian. You could very easily take the bus to the Polynesian and then walk to the Ticket and Transportation Center with a much shorter wait. For those staying at the Polynesian and heading to Epcot on the monorail, it is usually quicker to walk to the Ticket and Transportation Center and take the Express Monorail to Epcot, rather than taking the Resort Monorail to the Ticket and Transportation Center and then transferring there to the Epcot Monorail. You’ll also find that there’s no bus to Downtown Disney at the Ticket and Transportation Center. If you find yourself at the Ticket and Transportation Center and want to visit Downtown Disney, you can walk to the Polynesian and take the bus to Downtown Disney there.
We’ll walk from the Ticket and Transportation Center to the Polynesian first and then reverse course and walk back.
Here we are looking at the Ticket/Transportation Center Monorail.
And in the opposite direction towards the trams and parking lots.
Looking to the right now. This is where we’re headed.
Here we are following said route. You can see the last ticket line to our right. This is the path that takes you to the Polynesian.
Here we are just around the corner. Already, the sign to the Polynesian Resort is visible and we’re almost on property.
Plowing forward. There is a little bit of a crosswalk here, so watch out for vehicles.
Can almost smell the Dole Whips. From here, we’ll just follow the signs along the sidewalk.
Coming up on the Rapa Nui longhouses to our right.
The main parking lot and security gate to our left.
This is the main bus stop to our left and the Great Ceremonial House directly in front of us.
Now turning back the other way. If you’re coming from the Great Ceremonial House, you’ll want to exit and take a left down to the bus stop where we are now.
Headed toward the Ticket/Transportation Center.
The parking lot and security gate now to our right.
We can already see the Ticket/Transportation Center in the distance.
Don’t give up now. You’re almost there. Note that the signs are actually beckoning you toward the Ticket/Transportation Center and away from the Polynesian Resort.
Rapa Nui to our left. If you find yourself staying here, the Ticket/Transportation Center is closer than the Grand Ceremonial House and the Polynesian Resort’s bus top.
And there she is. The Ticket/Transportation Center.
All in all, it’s a very easy, pleasant walk between the Transportation/Ticket Center and the Polynesian Resort. It takes about ten minutes to walk from the monorail entrance/exit to the Polynesian’s Great Ceremonial House.
