    Hi Ronald! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    Watercraft transportation is my favorite way to cruise around Disney Parks. Boats leave from Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground Marina, which is located near the Settlement Depot. Destinations are marked by flags, and boats leaving from this Resort have either a green flag or a blue flag:

    Green Flag: The boats to the left of the launch have green flags and go to Magic Kingdom. The Green Flag Boat Launch operates from a half hour before the Magic Kingdom opens to an hour and a half after Magic Kingdom closes.

    Blue Flag: The boats to the right of the launch have blue flags, and go to Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort and Disney's Contemporary Resort. These boats run from 6:45 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. 

    Guests with early morning Advanced Dining Reservations, such as yours at The Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom, will need to take the Blue Flag Boat Launch. The journey is about 20 minutes to Magic Kingdom, and please factor into your plans that you could have a 15-20 minute wait time for the next boat to arrive.

    Please let me know if you have any further questions regarding your stay at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground!
