    My family is planning to stay at the All Star Movies Resort, but we are wanting to eat at the Whispering Canyon Cafe at the Wilderness Lodge. What is the best way to get from the All Star Resorts to the Wilderness Lodge?

    Hi Krysta!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am excited to see that you are thinking of making a dining reservation at Whispering Canyon Cafe, located at Disney's Wilderness Lodge (which just so happens to be my favourite hotel at Walt Disney World Resort!).  This is a popular restaurant, full of shenanigans and delicious food, so I would recommend that you make your reservation as soon as possible, either online or by using your My Disney Experience account.   I would also suggest you arrive early enough to have a look around this beautiful Resort hotel.  The lobby is spectacular and the grounds and the views over Bay Lake are stunning.  

    There is currently no direct complimentary transport that runs between any of the Disney Resort hotels.  Disney buses will take you from Disney's All-Star Movies Resort to any of the theme parks, water parks and Disney Springs.  If you are intending to spend the day of your dining reservation at any of those locations, you could take a bus straight to Disney's Wilderness Lodge from there.  Or you could take a bus to Magic Kingdom Park, and then board a boat to Disney's Wilderness Lodge - this is one of my favourite pastimes!  The boat ride takes around 10 minutes and is really nice!   After dining, you can take the boat back to Magic Kingdom Park, and then board a bus from there back to your hotel.

    For a more time-efficient option, have you considered using the Disney Minnie Van Service?  These distinctive vehicles can be seen out and about around the Resort, and can accommodate up to 6 guests, with 2 child seats if required.  You can order them by using the Lyft app on your smartphone, where you will also see the cost of using this service, and make your payment.  Regular Lyft vehicles can also be ordered on the same app.

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