    Going to MK and have dinner reservations at Whispering Canyon at Wilderness Lodge. My mom will have a scooter can she take it on the boats or do we need to take bus over? Have read different things so not sure what to do.

    Howdy Amanda!

    I'm so glad you are going to visit Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney's Wilderness Lodge during your upcoming vacation. I can never get enough of that enchanting resort. And the bottomless caramel milkshake at Whispering Canyon Cafe...oh, my!

    The large water cruisers that frequently travel between Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Wilderness Lodge can accommodate scooters. The smaller watercraft that move guests between Disney's Wilderness Lodge, Disney's Contemporary Resort and The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort are not able to accommodate scooters. At less busy times of the day, a smaller boat may be transporting guests between Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Wilderness Lodge. In that case, transporting the scooter by boat would not work.

    Therefore, I would recommend that you take the resort bus between between Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Wilderness Lodge. I take that bus frequently. The ride takes four minutes. (I timed it!) It is the fastest way to reach your destination. Of course you may need to wait a few minutes for the next bus to arrive, but I find this to be a very efficient means of transportation, and accommodating scooters is no problem at all.

    Enjoy your meal at Whispering Canyon Cafe. If you get the chance, walk out by Fire Rock Geyser either before or after your dinner so you can watch it erupt. (It does so on the hour from morning until nightfall.)

    Wishing you many magical memories,
