    what is the best way to get from Epcot to Mickey's backyard bbq, show starts at 6:30. can we take a water taxi? what time should we plan to leave Epcot? same question but for MK to Hoop de doo review, show starts 8:30

    Hi Teresa!

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel with your great question!

    You're going to have a fantastic and lively evening at Mickey's Backyard BBQ!
    There's no route along the water to access Fort Wilderness from Epcot. What you'll want to do is to head out the front gates of the park and over to the bus depot area. There, you'll board a bus directly to Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. It's a pleasant, short ride and you'll find yourself there in about 10-15 minutes' time. Be sure to head out to the front of the park by 5:30pm to ensure enough time to walk to the bus, wait for the next one to arrive and stroll merrily on over to the BBQ upon arrival!

    When you're visiting Magic Kingdom, you'll have two possible routes to get to the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue from the park. For the 8:30pm show, be sure to head out of the Magic Kingdom park gates by 7:30pm. You'll have your choice of heading straight down to the docks to jump onboard a boat headed for Disney's Fort Wilderness, or, stay to the left and head over to the buses. I'd highly recommend the boat route! It's an enjoyable ride and you'll enjoy beautiful views of the resorts lit for nighttime along the way.

    I hope this information is helpful to you Teresa!
    Please feel free to write me back any time you wish if I may assist you further with your planning. I'd love to hear from you again!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
