    Hi! I am traveling to WDW in April and my family and I are going horseback riding at the Tri-Circle D ranch at Fort Wilderness. Should I take the Ferry from MK to FW? If so, how would I get to the ranch from there? Do you have another idea?

    Howdy Lisa!

    Get your ridin’ boots on and head on over to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground for a rootin’ tootin’ time at the Tri-Circle-D Ranch. While you mosey around the ranch you may run into a blacksmith making horseshoes and fit them to a horse’s hoof. My kids were mesmerized by the blacksmith when we were there a few weeks ago. He was “shoeing” the horses that clip clop down Main Street USA in the Magic Kingdom Park. You may also hop on a wagon, pony or even carriage for a ride on the trails. 

    When traveling between any two places at Walt Disney World Resort, I like to use the Transportation Wizard found on the upper right corner at If you take the ferry from the Magic Kingdom Park to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground it should take about 13 minutes. Another viable option is to take the monorail to Disney’s Contemporary Resort and transfer to a ferry to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. Remember that you are not going to Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.

    Once you arrive at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground just follow the trail past the playground area then Pioneer Hall which is the home of the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Review. Yeehaw! The Tri-Circle-D Ranch will be on your right.

    I am so glad you stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Have a great time partner.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
