    Hiya, staying at FW cabins, please can you let me know the best way to get to the Wilderness Lodge for an evening early dinner (2 children aged 5 and 8). Don't want to meet a hungry bear! Thank you :)

    Hi, Nicola!

    LOVE your question!  Disney Mom Kay is a big fan of Fort Wilderness, and she is always on the search for scary bears at the Fort!  No sightings yet, but if you hear loud screams from the RV's, you will know Kay found one of those "hungry bears!"  

    Anyway, back to your question!  From Fort Wilderness, you can take a boat from the boat docks directly to Wilderness Lodge.  The boat ride is about 20 minutes.  You can also take a bus with about a 25 minute commute, but I think the boat is much more fun. 

    While I am confident you will not have any run-ins with any bears, I am very confident you will have a magical time at Fort Wilderness and Walt Disney World!  Enjoy!
