    Is the blue flag boat from the Contemporary to Wilderness Lodge running again? If not, when is the anticipated start

    Hi Stephanie! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question!

    Only a couple of months away until you arrive for your magical Walt Disney World holiday visit! The holiday season is such a fun and festive time to be at both the parks and resorts! Disney's Wilderness Lodge transforms their lobby into a cozy winter wonderland with a giant Christmas tree at the center and holiday decorations throughout. 

    When making your way over to Wilderness Lodge from Disney's Contemporary Resort, there is currently no direct boat access from one resort to the other. You'll need to use the walking path or monorail from the Contemporary Resort to get to the Magic Kingdom, then take a boat from there to Wilderness Lodge. It may be an extra step, but it just adds to the fun of the trip. Disney Transportation is one of the reasons that I fell in love with Walt Disney World. Where else can you hop on a monorail (that runs directly through the resort) and then hop on a boat to take you to your destination! It's truly magical!

    While I don't have a date that the blue flag water taxi will return, I would check with the front desk upon arrival at your resort to see if it is running. Disney has continued to reintroduce experiences that were once in place before the closure a couple of years ago, so it may just be a matter of time before we see this return again. A great example of this is the highly anticipated return of Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Walt Disney World has announced that it will be returning soon, although an exact date has not been mentioned. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for any further information!

    Stephanie, I hope you have a magical time during your upcoming visit! 

    See ya real soon!
