    Hi Panel! I have 2 questions about travel within WDW: 1) What are the stops for the WL boat shuttle? 2) How long should it take to get from WL to Akershus for breakfast, including the walk within Epcot? Thanks so much for all your help!

    Hi Christina!

    The Wilderness Lodge motor launch boats stop at Fort Wilderness, Disney's Contemporary Resort and the Magic Kingdom. The launches run clockwise until about 3pm and then reverse direction. These launches are recognizable by their Blue Flag. There are also Red Flag boats - one larger motor cruiser and a smaller motor launch which service Wilderness Lodge directly to and from Magic Kingdom. During peak travel times, for example when Hoop Dee Doo lets out, the motor cruiser occasionally will make a stop at Fort Wilderness before proceeding to Magic Kingdom.

    I LOVE Akershus for breakfast. Definitely one of my very favourite character meals. Getting there from Wilderness Lodge should take you about 30-45 minutes total including walk time, under the most favourable conditions. However, I'd recommend that you arrive at the Wilderness Lodge bus depot area at least 60 minutes prior to your reservation time to allow for wait time for your bus, a possible quick stop or two at The Grand Floridian & Polynesian resorts and travel time to Epcot. Upon arrival, you'll also need to allow time for bags to be checked and entering the park and in the morning there are typically some lines.
    It's never fun to have to feel rushed along, so leave with time to spare and enjoy the scenery along the way!

    Once you've arrived inside Epcot, take a left behind Spaceship Earth and the shortcut in behind Test Track, pass Mexico and you'll be in Norway! It's about a 10-minute, brisk walk once you've entered the park.

    Wishing you a wonderful time at Wilderness Lodge and a Magical time as you dine with the Princesses at Akershus Christina!
