    Hello. I'm staying at Wildneress Lodge for a visit next week. I'm wondering which is the faster way to the Magic Kingdom, the Bus or the Motor Launch? Approximate travel times for each?

    Hi Jeffrey!

    The Wilderness Lodge is beautiful! Hope your trip in magical!

    Both the bus and boat transportation are very quick methods of getting to the Magic Kingdom. The bus ride would be less than 10 minutes of actual transportation time and the boat is probably less than 15 minutes.

    Personally, I think the boat is the better choice, as they come very often and usually aren't too crowded. Many times, strollers won't need to be folded when boarding the boats - a great plus if you've got little ones. AND - since you'll most likely be taking buses to the other parks, the boat is a great change of pace!

    Hope this helps! Have a great time at the Lodge!
