    How can I get from Disney Animal Kingdom Lodge to Disney Whispering Caynon Cafe? We also want to do the pony rides after. Is that near?

    Hi Kimi!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    I am happy to see that your holiday is just around the corner, and that you are making plans for a very nice day at some of the Disney Resort hotels.  It's also no secret here that Disney's Wilderness Lodge is my favourite resort hotel and I know you will enjoy spending some relaxing time there.

    The easiest way to travel between your resort hotel - Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge - and the Whispering Canyon Cafe is to take a bus to Magic Kingdom Park.  From there, you have a short boat ride to Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  As you make your way to the main building of the Lodge you can enjoy the landscaping and the pool and Silver Creek Falls - this is a stunning place for photos!  

    After you have enjoyed all the shenanigans at Whispering Canyon Cafe, you will need to make your way to Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort for your pony rides.  The easiest way is to take another boat, so from the same boat dock get in line for the red flag resort boat which sails between 3 resort hotels - Disney's Wilderness Lodge, Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Disney's Contemporary Resort.  Please note this only operates after 3.00 pm each day. The boat dock at Fort Wilderness is located near to Pioneer Hall where you will check in for your pony rides.

    If you need transport earlier than 3.00 pm you can take a bus between the two resorts - please check with the Front Desk (just opposite Whispering Canyon Cafe) for the timings of the buses.  

    When you are ready, you can take a boat right back to Magic Kingdom Park, and then a bus to return you to your hotel.  I hope you enjoy the boat rides - this is something I do just for fun on quieter days at the resort!  You will have spectacular views over Seven Seas Lagoon and around Bay Lake, and get a good look at the Magic Kingdom Resort hotels as you sail past.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation at Walt Disney World!
