    How do you get from CBR to Mickeys Back Yard BBQ via car? We are renting a car, and wantedt to know how to get there for our 6:30 ADR. Thank you for your time. I love the Mom's Panel!

    Hi Josette!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.

    You can drive from the Caribbean Beach Resort to Fort Wilderness.  Once you arrive at Fort Wilderness you will park at one end of the resort, and then catch an internal bus to the Settlement where Mickey's Backyard BBQ is held.  I would plan on the whole trip taking about 35 to 45 minutes on average.

    Another way to get to the Backyard BBQ is to spend the day in the Magic Kingdom and then take a boat from the Magic Kingdom to Fort Wilderness.  It's about a 20 minute boat ride and it is very nice unless the weather is poor (like being too cold).  The boat drops you off about a couple of hundred yards from where Mickey's Backyard BBQ is held.  Then afterward, you could take Disney transportation back to the Caribbean Beach Resort.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
