While in Disney World Bill and I did some hotel hopping. We visited three of the hotels on the Monorail line. It was a lot of fun to see the inside, the gardens and pools. We have seen them from afar for many years but never had the time to take the tour.
While at the Polynesian Resort we impulsively rented a little boat and went out on the lake, cruising by the Disney World entrance! Who knew this amenity was available to anyone, not just hotel guests. There is a fee, but it was quite reasonable, especially by Disney standards.
We also went by the Disney's Contemporary Hotel and under the Monorail itself!
It wasn't until we were out in the middle and on the way back that I noticed the clouds were darkening and a storm was 'abrewing!
We made it back in the nick of time with only a sprinkle of rain. Far less rain though, than the boat spray in my face and the gallons that splashed in over the edges! :-)

A Disney World Tip!
When taking the tour, the monorail will stop at three hotels and you can get off an on again going to the next one, but each hotel also has a boat that goes to the Magic Kingdom. These are boats only hotel guests usually get to ride so at your last hotel, choose to return via shipboard! Just an added bonus
We took the pirate shuttle from the Polynesian Hotel back to Disney World
