    Is the boat between the Contemporary and Wilderness Lodge currently active and running? We have breakfast reservations and want to be certain we can get from our Bay Lake Tower rooms as easily as possible!

    Hey there, Abigail! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad that you've stopped by with such a great vacation planning question. I love chatting Disney with my pals, pal!

    Eeeeek! In just days, you'll be arriving at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort, ready to begin your magical adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth. How exciting! Bay Lake Tower is one of my Disney Vacation Club Home Resorts and my very favorite DVC Resort. With the monorail soaring by, its location within walking distance of Magic Kingdom Park and a seemingly endless list of fantastic nearby dining options, it's the perfect home away from home right in the middle of the magic. Now, let's get to your question!

    Unfortunately, the water transportation blue route from Disney's Contemporary Resort to Disney's Wilderness Lodge is still temporarily unavailable. While I know this is a bummer, Hakuna Matata! It means "no worries!" My family and I were recently in the exact same situation when we stayed at Bay Lake Tower and had a dining reservation at Wilderness Lodge, so let's chat about your transportation options to get to your delicious breakfast.

    To get to our dining reservation at Wilderness Lodge from Bay Lake Tower, we just took the short walk over to Magic Kingdom Park and then hopped the boat from Magic Kingdom to Wilderness Lodge. However, if your breakfast is early in the morning, just be mindful of when Magic Kingdom Park opens that day. The boats begin running about 30 minutes before park opening, so if your reservation is too early, this may not be an option. Since the busses begin running about 45 minutes to an hour before park opening, you might be able to hop a bus over to Wilderness Lodge from Magic Kingdom, but if you want to easiest and fastest option, I suggest that you use the Lyft app to request a Minnie Van to quickly shuttle you door to door. Bon appetit!

    I hope this was helpful, Abigail, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable upcoming vacation! Please stop by any time with any questions you may have. You've got a friend in planDisney.

    See ya real soon,
