    My family and I are staying at the Fort Wilderness Campground. We want to arrive very early to the MK, but I just read on a Q&A that the boat does not launch until 30 minutes before park opening. Is the boat ride fairly quick or should we use the bus

    Hi Lisha!

    It's about a twenty minute non-stop boat ride to the Magic Kingdom from Fort Wilderness.  That includes the time for the docking at the Magic Kingdom end.  As long as it is not too cold, it is a very relaxing and lovely way to enter the Magic Kingdom.  In fact, taking a boat from Fort Wilderness or the Wilderness Lodge is my favorite way to get to the Magic Kingdom.

    I hope this helps with your decision!  Write back if you have any more questions!
