    We are staying at the Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort on our next trip to Disney. Can you please tell us the travel times by boat to the Contemporary Hotel and to the Magic Kingdom?

    Hi there, Karyn!

    Disney's Wilderness Lodge is an amazingly themed resort, reminiscent of the lodges of the National Parks. I have a feeling that you are really going to enjoy your time there.  

    You will have an easy time traveling by boat to the 2 destinations you mentioned.  Although you can take a bus, it is much more fun to head to the Boat Dock for your trip to Magic Kingdom Park.  Look for the boat with the red flag.  Once boarded, the trip should take around 10-15 minutes, give or take.  The boat ride to Disney's Contemporary Resort will take around 20 minutes or so.  No matter where you travel to on property, please remember to allow adequate time in your plans to wait for the next boat, bus, monorail, etc.

    Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I wish you a truly magical vacation!
