    Hi, we are just 8 days away from our magical vacation at WDW!! We are staying at the Contemporary but would love to visit Wilderness Lodge for dinner one night. Are boats running between the resorts right now?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Beth!

    Wow, your visit to Walt Disney World is around the corner; you must be SO excited!

    Disney's Contemporary Resort is a fan favorite, and you're going to love the convenient location right next door to Magic Kingdom Park.

    Disney Water Transportation is a super relaxing way to travel while touring The Most Magical Place on Earth, however, at this time, water taxi transportation is limited, and travel between resorts is not offered. No worries, though. When heading to dinner at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, just follow the convenient walking path that leads directly from Disney's Contemporary Resort to the entrance of Magic Kingdom Park. Adjacent to the park entrance, you'll find those water launches waiting to take you to Disney's Wilderness Lodge. For your return, if all of that delicious dining makes you too tired to walk back to your resort from Magic Kingdom Park, simply look for the Disney Monorail Transportation station just to the left as you exit your water taxi back at Magic Kingdom Park. The Resort Monorail runs clockwise, so the very first stop after Magic Kingdom is Disney's Contemporary Resort. Easy Peasy!

    If you are dining at Whispering Canyon Cafe, be sure to bring your sense of humor...and request some ketchup to go along with your meal. Set just next to the gorgeously grand main lobby of Disney's Wilderness Lodge, Whispering Canyon Cafe is the perfect place to cap off your day with an extra dose of pixie dust.

    Enjoy putting those finishing touches on your Walt Disney World vacation, Beth. Be sure to send more questions our way, too. We love to help!
