    We have reservations at Trail's End Restaurant. I remember having a hard time getting there before and even the bus driver couldn't help. Can you advise which bus we should take or how we can get there.

    Howdy, Sandy! Thanks for moseying on over to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. Let's get to chowing down in the wilderness!

    Now, I have a lot of Walt Disney World Resort hotels that I claim as my favorites, but Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground has truly become like a second home. We love "glamping" in one of the sweet little cabins there, and we've had many a stick-to-your-ribs meal at Trails End Restaurant. It's really something of a hidden gem among Walt Disney World dining spots, so I'm happy to help you make your way there as easily as possible.

    Walt Disney World bus transportation serves all of the Resort hotels, including Fort Wilderness, but you can only take a bus from your Resort to a Theme Park or Disney Springs. There's no direct service between Resort hotels. That means you'll need to go to a Park first, and then transfer. My advice is to take the bus to the Magic Kingdom entrance, then head over to the boat launches and take a leisurely cruise to Fort Wilderness, which should take about 20 minutes or so. Once you arrive, it's a short walk from the marina to Pioneer Hall, the home of Trails End.

    Another possibility is to use Disney's Minnie Van Service to go directly from your Resort hotel to Fort Wilderness. It should drop you off at the bus stop adjacent to Pioneer Hall. It's an extra charge, but it is the most direct option.

    I hope you enjoy the vittles at Trails End, Sandy. Please come on back by if you have any more questions, ya hear?

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
