    My parents will be staying at the Wildnerness campsites and we are wondering whether there is transportation from disney resorts to them and if so, what options there are. We are trying to choose a deluxe resort that allows us easy access to them.

    Hiya, Haley! Welcome, and thank you for your question.

    I love family trips to Walt Disney World, and almost all of our trips have included parents or grandchildren. That means sometimes, you have to spread out to multiple Disney Resorts Collection hotels. 

    Your parents are in a fairly convenient place at the Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort if you want to access them from one of the Deluxe Resort Hotels. Your best option for resort transportation is going to be by water taxi. These complimentary resort boat launches go between both Disney's Wilderness Lodge and Disney's Contemporary Resort about every 20 minutes throughout the day. Those will be the most convenient resorts with the most direct route. You could also consider both Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa and Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. You'll have to take the resort monorail to the Contemporary Resort, then hop off and head to the marina to access the boats. It's a bit longer but totally doable.

    If there's a deluxe resort you love without direct access, don't worry too much. You can get to the Ticket and Transportation Center from any of the resorts, and that will allow you to catch a bus to your parents. It's also a good meeting spot if you want to use Disney transportation to visit a resort for breakfast or dinner. 

    I hope this helps you make a practically perfect choice for your family, Haley!
