    We're going to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and trying to decide between staying at the Contemporary or Boulder Ridge Villas at Wilderness Lodge? Does the water taxi run during special events?

    Greetings Foolish Mortal - I mean Krystal,

    Welcome Home and welcome to planDisney!  I will be your host - your ghost host - for this question, so step in... all the way in....as I answer your question.  How frightfully delightful you will be joining Mickey and friends for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party during your Disney vacation.  It is sure to be full of haunted happenings of the magical kind, and one not to be missed.  

    Krystal, when it comes to special events, there is always Resort transportation available before, during, and after the event, typically up to an hour after the conclusion of the event.  While water taxis could be running back to either Disney Contemporary Resort or Disney's Wilderness Lodge Boulder Ridge, the hours of the water taxis are subject to change and their availability can be weather dependent.  So, unfortunately, I can't confirm that they will be operational during the dates of your visit.  But you would be able to access either the Monorail or Disney Bus Transportation back to the Contemporary and definitely the bus transportation back to Wilderness Lodge for at least an hour after the event ends.  

    What you can do is ask your Resort on the day of the event if the water taxis are running, and if so their hours of operation, or which transportation is the best to take back to your Resort. This way, you'll know which line to get in once the event concludes.

    Rest assured, you will be able to return to your Resort safe and sound, and won't have to stay in the Haunted Mansion overnight.  But I recommend as soon as the event comes to an end and you see your fellow guests start to...disappear, be sure and head directly to your Resort transportation. The lines can get frightfully long if you wait. Just beware of hitchhiking ghosts!

    I hope this helps you, Krystal.  If you have any further questions, stop back and see me. I'll be happy to help you.

    Hurry Back,
