    Hi, I'll be staying with my parents, husband and 2 and 5 year old at AKL the first weekend in December. I have ADR at Whispering Canyon for Saturday at 7pm. What's the best way to get there from AKL? Will Christmas decorations be up yet?

    Hi, Blanche! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your family is going to love the rootin-tootin time you'll have at Whispering Canyon Cafe. You've also picked a fantastic time to be visiting Walt Disney World® Resort as the Christmas decorations will be aglow all over this magical vacation destination, including the resort hotels.

    Without there being resort-to-resort transportation available, your best route is to take theme park bus transportation from Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge to the Magic Kingdom. From there, you can then enjoy a leisurely ride over to Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort via ferry, or transfer buses at the Magic Kingdom Bus Depot to a bus headed to Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort. My suggestion would be the ferry as it drops you off at the Wilderness Lodge's Marina and will give you a chance to see a lot of the resort as you walk to the lobby. Use the same method to return to your resort and you just might have perfect timing to view that evening's edition of Wishes Nighttime Spectacular! 

    I hope this helps in your planning, Blanche! Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any additional questions you may have.
