    How would I get from Magic Kingdom to the Wilderness Lodge? How long should we plan for travel?

    Hello and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You will be happy to know that you can arrive at Disney's Wilderness Lodge by bus or boat from the Magic Kingdom.  You will find both the bus stop area and boat docks right outside the entrance to the Magic Kingdom.  Buses run approximately every 20 minutes and, once onboard, you can expect a 10 to 15 minute ride.  You can expect about the same for the boat ride.  Personally, I tend to enjoy the boat ride.  It really is quite calming and I love the view!  Now with all this being said, I always recommend an hour to an hour and a half of travel time.  This includes exiting a park, waiting for your transportation and the ride to your destination.

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  The Whispering Canyon Cafe is my favorite dining experience.  Located inside Disney's Wilderness Lodge, this dining experience is not for the shy.  Let's just say that you may not want to ask for a very popular condiment.  

    Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"
