    I made reservations at the Boathouse in Disney Springs for 7:30. Can you give me an idea how soon I would need to leave the park to get there in time for my reservation? Will there be setting around World showcase for the Food and Wine Festival?

    Hi Lydia!

    While I haven’t yet had a chance to try out The BOATHOUSE, I have heard nothing but delicious and amazing reviews! This restaurant is elegant dining at its finest. With a menu that is sure to satisfy everyone in your travel party’s palate you can’t go wrong dining here. I also encourage you to save room for dessert and try out my personal favorite…key lime pie!

    If you are a Walt Disney World Resort guest you will be able to take advantage of the Complimentary Resort Transportation. This transportation system will let you sit back and relax while Disney does the driving. Whenever you are using Complimentary Resort Transportation, Disney advises that you allow approximately 90 minutes for transportation within Disney. Although I personally haven’t needed that much time it is a good idea to allow for enough time so that you don’t miss a dining reservation! You will not be able to take a bus from a Theme Park directly to Disney Springs. You will have to go to a Resort hotel and then a bus (or boat if you are staying at a Resort hotel with water access to Disney Springs) will transport you to Disney Springs from there.

    The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is just around the corner! It is a great time of year to visit and I always find myself having a difficult time choosing what to eat thanks to all of the options! Details haven’t yet been announced but I have a suspicion that we will start to hear the details very soon! Make sure to follow the Disney Parks Blog for the most up to date information!

    Have a magical time!
