    We are planning a trip to Walt Disney World at the end of January 2023. Will the Blue Flag boats that run between the Contemporary and Wilderness Lodge be running again?

    Hiya Chris! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question!

    Oh boy! There is nothing better than starting the planning process for your next Walt Disney World trip! The new year will be here before you know it and all the magical possibilities that await! You'll be arriving in plenty of time to still take part in the festivities for the 50th Anniversary Celebration! You'll find sweet treats, savory snacks, EARidescent merchandise, and plenty more to help commemorate this special event!

    At this time, Disney Water Transportation between Disney's Contemporary Resort and Disney's Wilderness Lodge has not begun running again. This service may resume again in the future, but Disney has not released any information on this just yet. I would continue following the Disney Parks Blog for any news and announcements leading up to your trip. 

    Chris, even if this mode of transportation is not an option, you'll still have another way to get to your destination using Disney Transportation. If you are coming from Wilderness Lodge to the Contemporary Resort, take the boat to the Magic Kingdom, then hop on the monorail to the Contemporary. You can also use the walking path from the Magic Kingdom if prefer to do so. If you are traveling the other way between the two resorts, simply just reverse the course. Walk over or take the monorail to the Magic Kingdom and hop on the boat to the Wilderness Lodge. While this is an extra step than a direct route, there is a bit of fun in the various modes of transportation offered around the Resort. My daughters love when we get a chance to take the monorail or the Disney Skyliner to our destinations.

    I hope you have a magical vacation, Chris! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
